Light lactic nose. Deep burgandy red with a much lighter lactic characer and flavour than the grand cru. This beer is more designed for large consumption. Very drinkable. Frank (4265) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Pours a nice dark brown. Tan head is thick and foamy. Intricate webs of lacing. Nose is spicy and vinous with a hint of tart apple. Definitely tart with some lemon juice overtones. Notes of grapes, apples, and wine. Dry finish. Very refreshing. JoeM500 (1909) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Red, but very, very dark. Sour and acidic. Dry, and slightly cherry at the end. Overall very woody and "sour-bourbon-like". The Grand Cru is far superior. Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2003
Some may like the sour overtones. I do not. Obviously an acquired taste. Low hop and no body. A beer by definition only. Racegoer (355) - Indiana, Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2003
Oak and malty and refreshing,fruity rounds with the oak flavours and is easy to drink.

Black beer with a soft frothy head and a sour malted nose. The flavour is mildly sour, which makes for a very drinkable beer. haukur (2133) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - MAY 17, 2003
UPDATED: APR 18, 2005 red brown in color, strange fruity smell. Taste was very vinegary, but very nice. Eirikur (386) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - MAY 16, 2003
This is a very vinegary and sour beer.
I found it a bit soury for my taste, but overall it is a fine beer. JorisPPattyn (10136) - BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2003
Dark brown-red, hazy, brown-yellow head, creamy. Sourish nose, vinous, oakwood, shrubbery, lactic-acetic. Sweet taste, creamy, lactic, slightly sourish. Bitterish retronasal component from first PALM-tries seems gone. Refreshing acidity - medium bodied. Long lingering acid aftertaste. I have not seen the bottle. Is this an old one (I doubt that), or is PALM reverting to the old taste? Good! JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 19, 2003
reddish brown color w/ a dirty white head. It has a slightly sour taste, but overall is well balanced
