PALM Ale has long been one of Europe’s top-selling specialty beers. Made with English hops, French Barley, and Belgian yeast, PALM represents the best of European beer-making traditions. It’s the roasted Champagne Malt which gives PALM its amber color, but without being heavy. Also available bottle-conditioned as Palm Hergist.
Sold as Palm outside of Europe.

I liked this one a lot! It was everywhere in Amsterdam too, which was good. Red color with a soda-like fizziness. I liked the color a lot. I think all beers should look like this.

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

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.

een goed biertje, maar ietsje te zoet.

Palm Hergist (750 ml refermentating) version: Slightly hazy, copper color. Head is creamy, medium sized and medium lasting. Small yeast particles float around. Spicy and fruity aroma, some malts, and a hint of iron. Taste is soft malty, spicy and refreshing. Palate is slightly metallic, medium lingering. IMO better than the normal Palm Speciale.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 I think the recipe of this one was changed a few years ago, because it is substantially sweeter and more one-dimension than i recall. Luckily there is still the "Palm Hergist" (stored under the same rating as the regular Palm Speciale here on ratebeer) with refermentation in the bottle and which is only available in 0.7 l bottles. My rating reflects score for Palm Hergist. Remark on aged bottle (BB 2004, sampled end 2009, about 8 years old): caramel and spices in aroma, orange, is this really a Palm? Flavor is quite sour for a Palm, not very complex, some fruit. Thin mouthfeel. Eight years is too much.

I like the flavour of this beer combined with its visual aspect ! Taste the Dobbel Palm for extra pleasure during the x-mas holidays

I found this copper coloured beer to be quite pleasant.The initial aroma wasn’t what I had expected but it certainly wasn’t unpleasant.It left a strong definite aftertaste and it would be one that wouldn’t be difficult to recognise .It is not unique enough to be a top class beer.Not boring-if you get a chance to try it,do.

Bottled, pasteurised. Golden amber with huge head. A big malty flavour with malty sweetness and a spicy undernote. The finish is a little short but it is a good beer to keep by.

Amber with a good head and nice lacework. Sweet, malty and fruity aroma with metallic notes. Flavour is smooth, fruity and a bit bitter. Aftertaste is malty, slightly bitter and metallic. I guess you could drink a lot of this...
