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.

Poured from a snap cap 33cl bottle. Aromas of resin, dough, lemon. Very cloudy golden yellow with a massive rocky head that dissipates quickly. Tastes surprisingly sweet and only lightly sour for a white. A medium body, oily feel, average carbonation. Complicated long astringent finish. Interesting but not my favorite white.

aleksander9 (533) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2014
Cloudy yellow with foamy white head. Aroma is spice, earth, citrus, vinegar and green apples. Fruity palate. Aftertaste is dry, citric, fruity, sweet malt and spicy. Overall: A weird one.

Hazy golden with a white head - Wheat and spicy yeasty aroma - Good malt body with wheat and there is olso a strong spicy yeasty flavour - The spicy yeast with some peppery notes goes into the finish - This was nice

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Sving-topp flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Åpner uten smell men med litt røyk. Lys gusjegulgrønn med tett partikkelforurensning. Litt skum som faller nesten helt sammen. Ser ikke bra ut! God aroma av modne plommer. Smaken har preg av banan & søtlig krydder. Mye sedimenter igjen på flaska.

In one word: apple-vinegar. Difficult to say anything else about it except that the bottle and the beer look good.

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2014
330ml swing-top bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes in Tromsø. Near-clear, yellow-gold coloured body. A solid wheat haze to the last pour. Faint pearl white head. Bread, coriander and grass on the nose. Quite well mixed wit taste of peach, lemon, orange, wheat, and coriander. Bittersweet tail. Medium bodied. Refreshing (08.06.2014).

A nice table beer. A hint of sourness if you look for it with bready malts and some jammy fruits. Solid stuff. Not a wit tho.

A swiss Belgian. Orange peel, koriander and wheat. Fizzy and dry in its finish. Smells like a bunch of flowers. Very nice.
