COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

It’s the roasted Champagne Malt which gives PALM its amber color, but without being heavy. Also available bottle-conditioned as Palm Hergist.

I’d never heard of it, but the waitress said it was a belgian beer. Hmm... Dry and bitter, some funky yeastyness, orange in color with a frothy head. Really sharp carbonation bite. Not very pleasant.

25cl flesje via Jumbo, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 5,2% Uitgeschonken in Belle-Vue glas Uiterlijk: amberkleurig met klein schuimkraagje Aroma en smaak: zoet, moutig, zacht Conclusie: te vaak gedronken, erg bekend. Als dorstlesser, speciaal is het bier niet ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rotaman14 (151) - Potsdam, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2014 75cl Flasche. Honig, Mais und milder Hopfen im Aroma. Der sehr süße Antrunk entwickelt sich zu einem herberen Geschmackserlebnis, mit einem langen, würzig-bitteren Abgang. Eine gewisse unangenehme Säuerlichkeit ist auch präsent, tritt aber nicht zu stark in den Vordergrund. Ist schon in Ordnung, das Bier. »Französische Biertradition ist besser/stärker als die Deutsche «. Na gut, wollen wir mal über diese Beleidigung hinwegsehen ;-).

Copper golden colored body. Light on the head with a thin film of carbonation. Light fruity tang aroma. Mild bitter taste that’s nicely balanced in sweet fruit caramel.Feels wet with an apple-like crispiness. Refreshing with a malty background.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear darkish copper color with a medium white head. A sweet malty nose, some toffee and yeast. Sweet, light fruit, caramel, yeast, a clear spicy Continental profile half Belgian ale half European sweet lager. Very smooth, drinkable.

GenkiGonzo (346) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 16, 2014
Draught at Pig ad Whistle. Amber colour with decent lacing. Aroma is grainy hops with some malts. Starts sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Not bad, but I won’t order a second.

Amber colour, moderate porous head. The aroma is quite special: grains corn, dryed fruit, plastic & a skunky note that unites all mentioned and that a can’t really define. Medium body. Sweet taste with a delicate sour note in the background. Grainy finish. The beer of its own character that not really strikes my taste.

Alengrin (2355) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2014
Along with De Koninck, this is the classic ’spéciale belge’, a style which has lost much of its popularity in the last decade - prompting the Flemish government to classify it as something which needs protection. Back in the nineties, before I started venturing into specialty beers, this was my favorite session beer. I’ve tasted it hundreds of times from bottles and from tap, but for this rating I bought a 33 cl can. Pours a warm orange blond colour with somewhat yellowish hue, clear with little fizz, under a thinnish but dense and stable, off-white head. Weakish and sweetish aroma of caramel, pasteurization and clear DMS (cooked cauliflower), iron, pear, rotten peaches, hints of banana, apple peel and hazelnuts. Taste begins with a restrained, sweetish fruitiness of vague apple, apricot and orange, minerally and slightly sourish carbonation, caramelly and nutty but superficial maltiness in the middle, slick and rather thin mouthfeel, metallic too, finish mildly grassy hop bitterish but mostly consisting of lingering malt sweetishness. Thirst-quenching and preferable over Jupiler and the like, but on the thin and bland side, more straightforward than it could have been and partially ruined by quite off-putting odours. I remember the tap version as being a bit more ’pure’ and malty, but I cannot exclude the possibility that this is my own imagination playing tricks with me. Classic alright, but not very interesting for those seeking the big, complex Belgian ales.

From bottle. Amber in colour. Small head. Faint hops and malt aroma. Perfectably drinkable but expected more.
