Tasting Notes

The “Spéciale Belge Ale” beer style is one of the better Belgian beers of the early 20th century. This smooth-drinking, amber-coloured, top-fermentation beer has a reasonable alcohol content. Special PALM malts are responsible for its honey-like mellowness, and PALM's own selected yeasts give it a fruity yeast aroma. Fine aroma hops from Kent afford a subtle harmony.

Technical Notes

The aroma is determined to a significant extent by yeast. Through intensive selection, the Van Roy family has amassed a lavish collection of the various yeast strains, each giving the beer its own fruity character. PALM is fermented with a specific yeast strain that provides a distinct banana fruitiness.

Reviews

PALM Ale has long been one of Europe’s top-selling specialty beers. It’s the roasted Champagne Malt which gives PALM its amber color, but without being heavy.
