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.

A fruity and a bit yeasty witbeer, that becomes a bit boring after a few sips. Nevertheless a very solid beer.

Bue à la pression. Blanche classique aux arômes de banane. Belle rondeur mais rien d’exceptionnel.

Bue à la pression en 25cl aux Portes Ouvertes BFM à Saignelégier, couleur blanche trouble, belle mousse, effervescence moyenne. Une bière complètement simple pour la brasserie, goût de banane assez fort grain blanc et pain.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 330ml bottle poured in a small BFM snifter glass. Enjoyed at "La Ferme du Château", Lausanne region. A: Pours a very pale yellow cloudy color. Forms a big creamy white head. Retention is low and some lacings are formed and left in the glass. A lot of sendiment floating around S: Spicy and tart in the nose. Wheat and yeast. Pepper and coriander. Grassy hops T: Follows the nose: wheat, yeasts, pepper, coriander. A bit acid. Nice hoppy grassy bitterness M: Light body and medium carbonation O: Another good BFM specimen. Very drinkable. A very good example of "home made" beer [ BA Review @ 4/1/2012 ]

Poured from a snap cap 33cl bottle. Aromas of resin, dough, lemon. Very cloudy golden yellow with a massive rocky head that dissipates quickly. Tastes surprisingly sweet and only lightly sour for a white. A medium body, oily feel, average carbonation. Complicated long astringent finish. Interesting but not my favorite white.

aleksander9 (1293) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2014
Cloudy yellow with foamy white head. Aroma is spice, earth, citrus, vinegar and green apples. Fruity palate. Aftertaste is dry, citric, fruity, sweet malt and spicy. Overall: A weird one.
