Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) For my first "Palm" years ago I remember saying that itís taste was pretty close to a breweryís smell. But that was something to appreciate. Nice amber colour, the head disappears a bit fast for my liking. Yeasty, malty nose and some caramel notes well balanced with the hops. Very high drinkability. 060693

oh6gdx (20387) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2005
Draught. Copper coloured, big foamy head. Cranberry aroma with hoppy hints. Hoppy malty flavour with weak hints of fruit. Pretty boring for being Belgian...

Dedollewaitor (13925) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2007

harrisoni (13773) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle from Beermerchants. Clear copper brown colour. Lasting thick white head. Some yeast some caramel some hop on aroma. Itís a bit like a British bitter to be honest. Touch metallic on the finish. Wont win best Belgian Ale competitions. Its drinkable enough but has a bit of an odd flavour on end. Lacks flavour and character. Its mostly inoffensive

yngwie (13616) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a beige head. Quite weak on the nose, with a grainy maltyness dominating. Disappointingly weak flavor, malty, with some caramel. Sure easy to drink, but too boring. Medium body, and a slightly fruity finish with some malt. Lacks bitterness I think. I remembered this one to be much more interesting, but of course my palate have changed, and itís not impossible that the beer have changed too. Still, itís far from a bad beer, easy to drink, and quenching. (071215)
