Belgian Beer 199: Palm Speciale

A little bit of history: in 1904 the Belgian brewery schools organized a 'brew a heavy, over 5%, beer' contest. Sort of. The beers that won were given the name of 'speciale' (or 'ale'). Palm Speciale was one of them. A light beer by today's standards, the Palm Speciale is 5.2% and a nice , slightly hopped beer. Brewed by Palm, of course.
(Hey, one more to go and we reach 200! Who would have thought ... kind of gave up on the recipes in the meantime ... but if you are looking for food ... )
