I ordered the palm because I wanted a carribean drink and all they Had was Red Stripe so I went for the Belgium beer that had a palm on it hoping for the best. What I got was thus ultra sweet beer that I would just have to say, was made for the ladies.

Very smooth. More of an Irish beer taste than typical Belgian.

I purchased this at Giant Beer Garden and Eatery, enjoyed chilled from the brown bottle with best before date 7/14/15 in a tulip.

The color is dark amber with good clarity and quick dropping white head with fine bead. The smell is very interesting-sweet cherry-like scent with light malt ester with a slight spice note in the yeast ester with gentle toast: interesting and inviting smell. The feel is semi-dry with malt texture and has medium high carbonation with light sweetness and mild spice in the texture with semi-dry finish.

The taste begins with a good malt flavor with light toasted quality with a slightly phenolic yeast with gentle fruitiness and slight spiced flavor with a dry and mildly medicinal taste in the finish. This is a simple amber -no frills yet easy to drink with some Belgian yeast character. I would drink this again, better than most amber ales in my opinion.

Enjoyed from the bottle in a pint glass, this standard Belgian pale pours a clear light amber with a nice white head that lingers and solid lacing. Rather clean nose of light caramel malts and light mild hops. Flavors are sweet up front with a hair of bittering to the back. A little light bread flavor comes through the aftertaste. Good carbonation makes for a lively effervescent mouth feel. A decent session Belgian pale, but nothing too exciting.
