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

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

The beer I drank had a 5.0% alcohol content. Golden colour. Very fruity aroma. Flavor is fruity, fresh, a bit sweet and malty.

I found this copper coloured beer to be quite pleasant.The initial aroma wasnít what I had expected but it certainly wasnít unpleasant.It left a strong definite aftertaste and it would be one that wouldnít 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...

This is a simple but tasty brew. It pours a clear amber color with a frothy white head. The aroma is sweet, toasty malt with some floral/herbal/earthy hop scents. These carry through into the flavor, with the addition of yeasaty, citric tastes, particularly orange. Itís got a refreshing, snappy hop finish that leaves me wanting more. Sadly, itís not very available in the Chicago area.
