Palme (3380) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. A fantastic looking glowing almost artificial looking red and pink colored cloudy thing with a small light pinkish top. Looks amazing. Light tart sourness on the nose, fruity and a bit of starch. Oh, this has some amazing flavors this. This is incredible! Lovely tart, lots of citrus acidity, lime, rhubarb and red currants the same I had when I was a child. This thing is really bringing back some good memories. Why can’t they make a shit load of this, bottle it in massive quantities and sell it widely commercial? This just pure class and absolutely amazing. Beer of the festival? It’s damn sure as heck not far off. 04.05.2013

CBC. So very nearly missed this, didn’t learn my lesson from the previous day when the raspberry was flying out. But Toby to the rescue! Toby had stored a jug behind the tables - big thanks mate! Pinkish looking beer, little white head. Crispy light palate. Plummy fruits (duh!) - slightly yohgurt. Not as tart as the raspberry but strangely I enjoyed this less. Light dry finish.
