3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
DATE TASTED: November 16, 2013... GLASSWARE: Ommegang stem... OCCASION: celebrating the unseasonably warm afternoon of football, Christmas lights and fun with my sons... APPEARANCE: opaque, deep golden amber body with a soft, foamy thin white head that rings uniformly; lacing is cirrus cloud and ocean crest... AROMA: aromatic, fruity--sour apple and tart candy... PALATE: light, fizzy as cider; possesses some staying power in the mouth, but rather dry like champagne...TASTE: mildly tart and pleasantly crisp with little exchange of flavor in the exhale; an underlying hint of lager malts, but inevitably this is a clean basket of fruit with enough hops to hint at an ale...OVERALL: This has to be one of those handful of brews I have passed numerous times, always intending to try and never quite trying; its inclusion in the "Great Beers of Belgium" forced my hand, and I am pleased to find it a serviceable, light, cheaper version of Unibroue’s wonderful Ephemere (which announces its apple right up front); a single notch below the Estaminet pilsner in the sample, and two below the Rodenbach--but beer drinking isn’t really a competition, right?...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice amber colour with a slight caramel hint on the nose. Taste falls a little flat after the great start; it seems somewhat muted.

Su suave sabor se debe a la simbiosis de tres levaduras elaboradas por la propia cerveceria, que le aportan un toque ligero a miel y caramelo. Los maltas especiales de Palm son responsable de su aroma afrutado. Esta hecha con lúpulos ingleses, cebada francés y levadura belga.

Amber coloured, decent head. Aroma is plums and caramel. Flavour is a little boring. Light metallic and chocolate. Vague notes of other spices but nothing distinct.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into snifter, weak in color, taste, body, finish…this is like the Belgium’s version of swill I would guess.

For once, a Belgian beer that doesn’t celebrate it’s origins in the medieval ages. This beer is only about 100 years old, and it tastes very modern to my American palette.

Aroma and taste from hers and hop. Medium level beer. Foam which is going to extinguish. Also the body is average

I really enjoy Palm, it has a great crisp taste and stands up well as an accompaniment to food or as a solo act. It has a good clean aroma and has a nice golden sheen when poured. There is no aftertaste and pours well. It does not have the full body flavor of its neighbor the Belgian’s but it is very satisfying.
