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.

GothGargoyle (1143) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2012
Cloudy yellow - kind of like lemon juice - with a small pale head. Aroma is rhubarb, peach, vinegar, daisies. Taste is apple cider vinegar, lemon peel, cloves, sour plum, grape skins. Light bodied, slightly tart on the palate, good balance of sweet and sour with a short crisp finish.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2012
This beer pours a gray dirty blond with no head. The nose has tart green apple, and plum. Has a lite body. The taste starts with a crisp lite cider with hints of plum and finishes with apple. The crispness reminds me of a saison. Very lite an refreshing would be amazing on a hot summer day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

canicule (90) - IRELAND - OCT 26, 2011
33cl bottle with a huge clump of yeast at the bottom. Pours hazy orange-yellow with white head. Huge sharp sour aroma, citrus and yeast/barnyard smell. Fizzy and sharp in the mouth, with a big punch of lemons, vinegar and bitter hops which gave, for me, an off-putting finish. Not your average witbier, but ultimately an incongrous mix.

rand (1269) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 1, 2011
Dorée pâle, trouble avec courte mousse blanche évanescente. Nez de blé, levure et agrume. Assez légère en bouche, un peu terreuse, notes de gentiane, coriandre. Très (trop?) pamplemousse et acide lactique. Trop sèche pour être désaltérante.

goozen (2886) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle with swingtop 0,33ltr: Hazy yellow colours with an subtle citrus taste, and there is some sourness too. Quite interesting Belgian Witbier from the Swiss canton named Jura.
