Brassée avec des malts de blé et d’orge, la salamandre est une bière au bouquet floral et épicé avec une note de levure légère, en bouche, elle est crémeuse avec une petite pointe d’acidité caractéristique des bières blanches. En finale, elle est peu amère, mais racée, on sent alors l’écorce d’oranges amères et un houblonnage discret.

0.33l swingtop bottle. Damn, this one has a serious amount of floaters! Really cloudy and deep golden looking in the glass with a nice medium sized just off-white head that’s leading some nice blondes down the sides of the glass. I’ll like the aroma. Loaded with wheat sweetness and yeast. I’ll thought this was supposed to be a blonde but it smells more like a cross between a wit and a wheat ale. A little sweet ripe banana estery thing here also. Quite enjoyable to be honest. It has a soft carbonation level inside a light oily mouthfeel. It’s not directly sweet in the taste but it has nice wheat sweetness. I’ll think this is more a wit than a blonde in the taste as well as it has that typical wit herbal coriander touch and lots of heffe yeast. A slightly orange zesty almost acidic hint in the finish. I’ll would not mind having this again. 05.10.2013

Tart, lemon, pale malts, lots of character from the fermentation, with sourness, fruity and light wood even. Delicious! But the taste is even better. Fruity sourness, lots of character. Yummy yummy. Pushing amazing amounts of flavours and still fresh and drinkable. Highly underrated, in my opinion. As a side note, was this what those American thought of when they started their saison reimagination? Because most are more similar to this BFM beer than a Dupont Saison. (33cl bottle from Etre Gourmet)

DijkBier (127) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle pours hazy light yellow, with quickly diminishing white head. Aroma of floral, wheat malt, yellow fruit, citrus. Slight sweetness in taste, lacks some freshness. Little cargo. But not bad at all..

Bottle from Salt Horse. Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of bread, light spice, faint lemon. Taste is more of the same. Clean finish. Decent.

En god Weissbeer. Den er ikke så syrlig som tyske hvedeøl, den er mere rund i det, og smager af alle de krydderier der er i. Den skummer rigtig meget, så pas på når du hælder op.

In short: little sour golden ale.
Pous hazy pale gold-greenish with nice white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Hay, citrusy, some barnyard nose. Light body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is hay, little tart, citrusy. Quite mild.

It is a nice experience with this beer. I drank it in Lausanne in the Simplon, close to the station. The color is yellow gold and troubled. The carbonation is medium and the foam is thin. It is a kind of beer like a witbeer with more character and there is a side sparkling and bitter. We could smell the "coriandre" and there is a side of grapefruit.

Nonshaugen (460) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2016
33 cl, bottle condidtioned, flip cap. Hazy, pale yellow, very thin head. Aroma is sweet wheat malt, it’s spicy and fruity. Same notes to the flavour, mouthfeel is low carbonation, quite crispy with a dry aftertaste. Nice one.
