Sorry, no, Gitto offers just one version of palm wine, the fermented, mildly alcoholic product of tree sap collected from many species of palm in tropical climes around the world. It goes by many names, too; palm wine is called emu in Nigeria's Yoruba language (whose name for fried plantain, it so happens, is dodo.) Chilled, shaken, and poured, in a glass this "top palm juice" (600 ml.; $2.50) is topped with a frothy but fast-fading foam of bubbles in various sizes. The liquid itself has the cloudy look of Fresca, but with a slightly milky-rich appearance, a sweet yet vaguely disquieting aroma, and a citric tartness with overtones of banana, or some other soft fruit fallen to the jungle floor.
I've tried a Cambodian version (if that's what it was) that on my tongue seemed very nearly viscous. This palm wine is light-bodied enough that you could give it a swirl, but what's the proper-shaped glass for a serving of emu? I couldn't say; a pint glass works as well as any.
