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.

Benzai (12807) - 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.
