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.

Quite clear, golden under a medium thick fluffy head, persistent. Good aroma intensity of citrus, yeast and coriander, unusually perfumed. Medium full bodied, tastes include dry fruity malt with citrus and warm spices, not only coriander but something akin to all-spice or other christmas spice, quite well balanced, medium plus length. Feels pretty thorough and hand-crafted compared to mediocre examples of the style. I’ll try another.

yngwie (14703) - 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 (4450) - 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 (1345) - 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 (3132) - 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.
