Beer #84 – March 28, 2010: Palm

April 4, 2010

Beer: Palm

Brewery: Palm Breweries, Steenhuffel, Belgium

Style: Belgian Pale Ale

Serving Type: 12 oz bottle

Price: $8.99 / six-pack

Availability: Year-round

Glassware: Pilsner Glass

Strength: 5.1% ABV (alcohol by volume)

Drinkability: Very easy to drink with some nice floral hop flavor.

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Clear golden-amber with a foamy white head.

Aroma: Sweet grain and floral honeysuckle.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full mouthfeel with a nice full carbonation of tiny bubbles.

Taste: A honeysuckle sweetness with a hint of caramel melds into a springtime green grass and floral hop middle, with a slightly dry finish.  This beer has a very unique and distinctive hop flavor and aroma that reminds me of honeysuckle.

Pairing: Enjoy in the backyard after a day of yard-work on a warm Spring day… a more flavorful alternative to the typical “lawnmower lager”!

Trivia: A sign near a Belgian monastery reads: “The good Lord has changed water into wine, so how can drinking beer be a sin?”
