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.

Bottle in Zurich. Hazy yellow body with full head. Nose is floral, skunky. Taste also quite floral, fruits, and apples. And then skunky. Medium carbonation. Pretty good.

willisread (1577) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2015
On tap at Watering Hole and listed as a Biere de Garde. Nice tart nose with lemon, orange juice and some other citrus flavors on the nose. Taste is more of the same with a strong orange character along with some light spice. Refreshing tart with some light lacto. Finish is tart with a nice creamy finish. Wonderful!

rodenbach99 (3759) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2015
Au Saint-Bock, en fût. Une bière dorée orangée avec une mousse pâle. Un nez de blé simple avec quelques épices. Une bouche facile à boire et rafraichissante. Une touche de blé avec des notes épicées classiques peu prononcées. Bien faite et agréable.

mergels (33) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 5, 2015
On tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Slightly cloudy, gold color. Whiteish head. Aroma of yeast and some citrus, even a sweet, ripe banana smell. Taste follows the aroma, pretty drinkable! Like it.

Benzai (11825) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle [from trade with CH-303] @ home. Hazy yellow color, medium to full sized white head that lasts for a decent while. Smell and taste are both full of a weird kind of fruityness that reminds me vaguely of apricot and unripe apple. Average to decent body, carbonation. A surprising witbier, let’s keep it at that.

(bottle) clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of cherry stones, bubble gum and paint thinner, quite chalky, with a hint of powdered sugar and manure. flavour is mostly the same, lots of bubble gum and black pepper, with a hint of floral hops, caramel, yeast and more manure in the semi-dry finish. medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation.

metalspice (438) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2015
Uklart gult med kort skum. Kraftig gjæraktig duft med krydder og moden frukt. Banan og mye ktydder, først og fremst kardemomme. I smaken. Vannaktig svak ettersmak.
