COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A la biere comme a la biere, paris: pours golden with a white head. Aroma is floral and some yeast. Taste is floral and slightly sweet. This really wasnt bad. I am surprised by the low rating.

Très belle robe jaune opaque. Arôme doux et assez moyennement fort. Saveurs très sucrées, note de levure légère, claires notes de miel, orange et coriandre. J’adore cette bière, rafraîchissante et délicieuse.

Riechen Hefebrotteig, etwas blumig-würziges, grasig und Weizen. Erfrischend, spritzig, halbvill. Malzig zu Beginn, feine Säure, blumig, wenig bitter. Mittel Co2. Abgang malzig und würzig. Frines Witbier.

Light hazy golden color with a white head. Some lacing. Mild acidic, malty, some wheat and herbal aroma. Medium body. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness. Average carbonation. Wheat, malty, yeast, herbal and fruity. Seemed a bit unbalanced. Some weird acidic notes.
[Bottle at SOT Bar & Burger in Trondheim, Norway]

On tap at Tipi Bar Siviez, Switzerland. The only real craft beer bar on 4 Vallees ski area. There’s many bar/restauran at the slopes having Heineken, Cardinal, Erdinger, etc. but only here I’ve managed to find BFM beers. So I was pilgrim here every day. La Cuivree, La Salamandre and La Torpille available at the time. Cloudy yellow coloured, small white head, wheaty coriander nose. Mild malty, wheaty, spicy and light fruity with notes of coriander and orange peel. Mild bitterish and pleasant spicy finish. Nice one.

Bottle in Geneva courtesy of Thiru. Cloudy whiteish colour. Quite full bodied and relatively dry and bitter for a blanche, some nice restrained spices, quenching and moreish. I’m not really a huge fan of Belgian-style witbier, but this one actually wasn’t bad.
