Speciale Belge” is one of the better Belgian beers of the early 20th century. This smooth-drinking, amber-coloured top-fermentation beer has a sensible alcohol content. Special Palm malts determine its honey-like mellowness and Palm’s own selected yeasts give it a fruity yeast aroma. Fine aroma hops from Kent afford subtle harmony. Palm is the absolute number one “Belgian amber beer”.

PALM Ale has long been one of Europe’s top-selling specialty beers and when you taste it, we think you will know why. Made with English hops, French Barley, and Belgian yeast, PALM represents the best of European beer-making traditions. It’s the roasted Champagne Malt which gives PALM its amber color, but without being heavy. PALM is a great alternative to traditional pilsners and lagers for the beer drinker looking for something a little different.

ESTAMINET owes its premium quality to the selection of the best natural ingredients: soft water, 100% high-quality summer barley, a distinctive yeast and very precious Saaz hops. High density, slow and traditional bottom fermentation to provide a fruity character and maturation for 6 full weeks make ESTAMINET a true Belgian premium pils.
In the 16th century the Catholic Spanish army marched into the Low Countries (Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and certain parts of Northern France) to do battle against advancing Protestantism. The Spanish soldiers, led by Alva, had a keen eye for inns offering a pleasant stay, with delicious drinks, tasty meals and a friendly atmosphere. The lively serving wenches were an added attraction. That’s why “esta minetta” (“there are girls”) became a code name for the preferred inns.
ESTAMINET is now the name of PALM Breweries’ best “premium pils”.
