PALM Royale

This ale type, which was given the name PALM Royale (ROY-ALE), was created in 2003 for PALM brewer Alfred Van Roy’s 90th birthday. His passion for the distinct fermentation fruitiness of his personally selected PALM yeast is perfectly embodied in PALM Royale: a real royal treat of a beer. Its appearance is copper-coloured, with a rich, white head which clings to the glass. The aroma is reminiscent of banana, the flavour has bite with a great deal of body. The beer is slightly sweet due to the alcohol, but is nevertheless somewhat bitter and fruity too.

Characteristic features

Top fermentation – Bottle-conditioned – Copper-coloured (light amber) – 7.5% ABV

PALM amber-coloured malts

Unique amber-coloured malts determine the basic flavour of PALM Royale: mild caramel flavours with a honey-like mellowness. The malting process adheres to PALM’s specific instructions, which are aimed at a natural brown colouring 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 Royale is fermented with a yeast strain which provides a distinct banana- like fruitiness.

The PALM Royale glass

A special glass for a real royal treat:
• On a long stem, inviting that tasting moment.
• A goblet shape curving inward slightly towards the top to allow PALM Royale’s extreme banana fruitiness to
really come out.
• Tapering towards the bottom in order to maintain the height of the head as the glass is drained.
