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.

Characteristic features

Top fermentation – Amber-coloured – Spéciale Belge Ale
Recognised local product – 5.2% ABV

PALM amber-coloured malts

Unique amber-coloured malts determine the basic flavour of PALM: mild caramel flavours with a honey-like mellowness. The malting process adheres to PALM’s specific instructions, which aim for the natural caramelisation that gives the beer its specific flavour.

PALM yeast

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 of which gives the beer its own fruity character. PALM is fermented with a specific yeast strain which provides a distinct banana fruitiness.

The PALM “balloon” glass

The glass exudes roundness and conviviality, perfectly matching the mellow flavour and that unique PALM drinking moment.
