76? Poor? Preposterous!
This is my new favorite beer!
Poured into a pilsner glass. Looks like a light amber lager. I don't know. Looks run of the mill. But that head is inviting! Super charged (in the words of Ronald Theriot), after a few sips it dies down so you don't get it all over your face. But you can really smell that aroma during those first few sips. If you've ever had a Blegian anything, you'll notice that familiar scent when it first hits your nose. But the aroma as a whole is earthy, grassy, there's some fruit in there... amazing. Did not expect it.
Taste is phenominal. I payed for what I thought and what was priced to be a Heineken competitor, but got so much more. Can't describe it. Just go buy some and try it.
Mouthfeel is crisp, refreshing, but not lacking. The flavor packs a wallop, and it is 5.4% alcohol, a tad stronger than your typical beer it is placed next to in the cooler. After taste is pleasant and sparkly. Some floral hops lingering in the background?
Overall, I'd say get this beer!

Served in a Palm branded chalice on tap at Kodiak's.

Bright copper/amber body with a finger of off white head. Soda-like carbonation, nice lacing of glass. Scent is lightly citrus, fruity. Taste is sweet, apricot the barest hint of hops. No aftertaste or bitterness. A nice "dessert" beer.

palm belgian pale ale

A/P= pours a clear amber hue with a two finger white head with carbonation sticking to the sides of the glas

S= a faint smell of caramel

T= clean and light with a light sweet taste on the back.

MF= bubbles everywhere

i like this beer, it tastes best in a glass extra cold, its a whole different beer when you drink it from the bottle , very pleasant tasting, the box that the six pack comes in is a brillant idea and more brewers should use it, it is the ultimate way to protect the taste of the beer.

cheers!

This is a review of the unfiltered version served on draught in a restaurant in Gent. This ale has the appearance of many unfiltered wheat beers. Cloudy and dark straw colored with a weak white head. Aroma and taste is a very nice balance of wheat and barley malt. Very slight spicy hop character. Extremely high drinkability. Haven't tried the filtered bottle version but this baby was solid. Recommended.

L: Pours an orange amber color with a medium bodied and short white colored head that laces the glass nicely on the way down. I was expecting a lot of yeast on the bottom but I did not see any.
S: Smells of sweet roasted malts, some fruity aromas, some slight yeast aromas, and then a nice slight hop aroma.
T: Tastes of sweet roasted malts, hints of biscuity flavors, some fruit flavors that yield some slight green apple flavors and a faint hoppy finish.
M: Crisp finish, medium bodied yet full flavored, perfect amount of carbonation.
D: Very drinkable, I liked this one a lot since it had a lot of mild flavors coming together and making it quite drinkable.
