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.

yngwie (13198) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle, 33cl. A decent, white head forms over an unclear, pale golden body. The aroma is lighlty spiced, with a nice fruityness, some pale malts and a little caramel touch. The flavor has some spices up front, it’s quite fruity, and with a backdrop of lightly caramel-ish malts. Medim body, soft and pleasant carbonation. A decent bitterness shows up towards the end. An easy drinkable and tasteful beer. 131004

ClubGonzo (3936) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a near-muddy milky dark straw-hued body with a medium creamy white. Nose is straw, nuts, pale malts, honey, banana and hints of coriander and wet grass. Taste is pale malts, white sugar, straw and hints of mild white bubble gum and white pepper. Light body, high carbonation. Despite the additional spices, this one comes across as rather mild and drinkable. I like it.

haukur (1270) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - DEC 7, 2013
Very cloudy yellow with a small almost no head. Smells a bit funky, with some zest, honey, maybe slight peppercorn. Almost saison aroma. A bit undercarbonated. Yeasty finish. A bit flat and small body that has its downfall on the brew. Otherwise ok.

Holmen1 (2306) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2013
0,33 flaske fra polet, hjemme: 5,5% iflg etiketten - ikke 6,3% slik det oppgis på RB. Uklar gylden med kort filmskum. Slank både i kropp og sjel, men allikevel behagelig og litt innsmigrende med banan, honning, litt nellik og naturligvis pregetav belgisk gjær. En vellykket debut av det for meg helt ukjente øllandet Sveits.

Bamsen78 (2978) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle from Embrouille - thank you so much for the trade! A gusher. Opens with a deafening plop! and pours cloudy pale yellow with abundand airy but stable white head. Sweetish aroma of yeast and banana with clear sourish notes - not of citrus, possibly of grain. Bitter, hoppy amd grassy flavour, with pronounced notes of citrus and a touch of spices - coriander?. Hops and lemon peel in the finish. I cannot quite taste the honey promised on the label, but it is not a problem as such. OK but a trifle too sourish (and no, it is not off, I have just checked the BBD.)

Foffern (1168) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle at home. Is slightly cloudy and yellowish, with a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is dominated by Belgian yeast, citrus, nutmeg and hay. The taste is more sweet with notes of banana and wheat, and appears more like a light hefeweizen. Mouth feel is smooth, and has a light bitterness. An absolute good wheat beer, but more like a typical German wheat beer than a Belgian wit.

Erzengel (2396) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2013
Rating from 2009. Ein Witbier mit Zucker, Blütenhonig, Koriander & Orangenschalen. Gelb-weißlich in der Flasche, säuerlich-frischer Geruch. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig-frisch, leicht säuerlich und angenehm mild. Hat schon ein kleines Bisschen was von Milchsäure. Zum Hauptteil ist das Bier vollmundiger, frisch, mild-würzig. Die Gewürze kommen schön zur Geltung, nur den Honig schmecke ich leider nicht heraus. Der Nachgeschmack ist für ein Witbier sehr lang anhaltend, mild-fruchtig-frisch und angenehm säuerlich-hefig. Ganz wenig herb. --> Sehr interessantes Witbier – aromenreich und nicht platt. Sehr zu empfehlen! --> 12,12,12,13,12,12 - 12,15
