For our second Local Fields Series offering we looked to match a Belgian classic with the sweetness of Southern California Dates. Palmero is a traditional Abbey Dubbel with a healthy addition of dates from the Coachella Valley. Fruity esters from the Belgian yeast strain combine with a delicate date sweetness. This beer is full of flavors of caramel, raisin, rum and spice.
“Palmero” refers to the title of a person that tends date palms.
We felt this was a natural name for a beer brewed with Coachella Valley dates. The Coachella Valley is home to roughly 95% of all dates grown in the US. Palmero (the beer) was designed to show off the wonderful complex flavor of Southern California Dates.
