Ontdek de limited retro verpakkingen.

We have always had our own way of doing things at PALM Belgian Craft Brewers. Over the years, we have often fought against the conventional, the straightforward and the mainstream. That’s why we stubbornly persisted in brewing top fermentation beers and in upholding the tradition of the Spéciale Belge beer type.
This unconventional, unique side of our character has also found expression in the bottles at PALM.

In order to celebrate our rich history and to highlight our distinctive, authentic character, we are now bringing out a temporary range of bottles and cans in four different retro packaging styles. Exquisitely timeless!

Open een wereld van smaak

Palm Spéciale Belge

The Spéciale Belge Ale beer style is a superior Belgian beer from the early 20th Century. This smooth, amber-coloured, top-fermentation beer has a moderate alcohol content. The special PALM malts give the beer a honey-tinged mellow flavour, while the specially selected PALM yeast provides a fruity fermentation aroma. Fine aromatic hops from Kent create a subtle harmony.

Palm hop select

PALM Hop Select is a complex, yet balanced top-fermentation connoisseurs’ beer with a moderate alcohol content. Its individual hop aroma derives from the aromatic Hallertau Mittelfrüh hop variety. The carefully selected PALM yeast lends the beer its fruitiness, with hints of banana, while the special PALM malts provide subtle caramel notes. The beer is refermented in the bottle to ensure fine carbonation and a superb shelf life. PALM Hop Select undergoes hopping in three phases. Hops are first added at the start of the boiling process in order to produce a bitter flavour. The beer’s specific hop aroma derives from the Hallertau Mittelfrüh variety, which is used for the second addition of hops at the end of the boiling process as well as for the third addition during dry hopping. For this stage we use Hallertau Mittelfrüh from our own hop field.


Top fermentation – Copper-coloured (light amber) – Belgian hops – 6% alcohol content

Palm Royale

This ‘old’ beer was christened PALM Royale (ROY-ALE) and was created in 2003 for the 90th birthday of PALM brewer Alfred Van Roy. His passion for the powerful fermentation fruitiness of his self-selected PALM yeast finds its perfect expression in PALM Royale: a beer fit for a king. It has a coppery colour with rich white foam and good lacing. The aroma is reminiscent of banana, while the flavour is full-bodied. The beer is slightly sweet thanks to the alcohol, but is also a little bitter and fruity.


Top fermentation – Refermented in the bottle – Copper-coloured (light amber) – 7.5% alcohol content

Dobbel Palm

Dobbel PALM was launched in 1947 by master brewer Alfred Van Roy as an end-of-year festive beer to celebrate the brewery’s 200th anniversary. He sold it without a surcharge as a way to thank all of his loyal customers. The beer was so successful that Alfred made it into an annual tradition.

Dobbel PALM is a top-fermentation amber beer with an even stronger malty hop character than PALM. Dobbel PALM has an alcohol content of 5.7%, making it an ideal connoisseurs’ beer for the festive season.

Exquisitely timeless

The unique, unconventional character of PALM can be seen in its packaging over the years. In order to highlight this rich background and to celebrate our unique approach, we are now launching limited editions of packaging from the 1950s, 1970s and 1990s as well as the standard packaging from 2010.

Both the bottles and the 33cl and 55cl cans are now being released with this original look, meaning that, for a limited time only, you can enjoy our authentic Spéciale Belge with both your eyes and your taste buds.

Exquisitely timeless!

Our own hops

In October 2011, we planted our own hop field, with 800 Hallertau Mittelfrüh hop plants. Our first harvest was on 5 September 2012, and we used it to create the exquisite connoisseurs’ beer PALM Hop Select. Since then we have harvested the hops every year with the help of hundreds of beer lovers during the PALM Hop Select Hop Festival.

We dedicate hundreds of hours to these specially cultivated hops, which we use exclusively for PALM Hop Select.

This beer undergoes hopping in three phases. Only when hops are added for the third time during the dry hopping phase do we use our home-grown Hallertau Mittelfrüh hops, making it our crowning glory! This is how PALM Hop Select gets its unique
herbal taste with a hint of citrus fruit.
