3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
9/23/2007: Palm Speciale pours a clear amber color with an off-white head and a mild amount of carbonation. It has a soft, sweet malty flavor that has undertones of toffee and roasted malt. It has a very smooth texture. This is a great beer for that I could see myself drinking any day, any time, any place. It has a nice color, isn’t too sweet, not to bitter, and a decent body without being too heavy or too light.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Disappointing and undistinguished Belgian ale. Clear bronze with a fat pillowy head. Peppery aroma with some dusty attic, ginger beer and Rumtopf. Medium-bodied and syrupy with a disappointingly abrupt finish - where’ditgo??? Oversweet and malty, with toffee dominant over diluted tropical fruit juice. Some English bitter-like characteristics, but not the good ones. Too thin and sweet to be sessionable, yet not robust enough to work as a sipper. Found it a struggle to drink in the end. (33cl bottle. BB 4/10/07)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A delicious rather full tasting ale. Nothing amazing about it but (in my opinion at least) it makes a pleasant change from the huge beers available in Belgium. Quite like an English bitter (though more malt heavy)

Pours a clear gold with a small egg-white head with some lacing. Wonderful sweet & spicy aroma. Taste is not so exciting - corn, sweet malt, lagerish. Slightly-off hop aftertaste, thankfully lasts a split second. Carbonation is good but the body is thin. This stuff must be to Belgians like Kokanee is to Canadians. Pure swill.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber ber with a good carbonation. Light beige head. Spicy aroma. The flavor is more difficult to describe as it disappears almost immediately. A very htin bodied beer. I hardly recognise some malty notes and caramel.

Indeed a very nice sessionbeer. [Eat that you bloody anglofiles.] With lots of behavior ale and fruitnotes. A wellbalanced yeasty profile, soft and refreshing.

Bottle. Poured a nice amber beer with a good head. The aroma is sweet, fruity, and malty. The flavor is soft, sweet of a good malt blend, and slightly bitter. A really good beer.
