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.

armando629 (2415) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 25, 2012
0,33 l bottle as a gift, thanks Balazs!
Poured murky yellow with a small creamy white head. Sourish, lambic style brett aroma with barnyard, lemon peel, vinegar, spicies. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel with a sourish character but not as acetic as expected according to the aroma. Light vinegar, citrusses, cinnamon, lemon peel. Interesting one.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2012
Pours a hazy straw color under a faint but lasting oily head. Wonderful nose of sour apple, clove and balsamic vinegar. Complex opening with sweet apple vinegar and clove, finishing with a wheaty tartness, extremely thirst quenching. Palate is soft and medium fill, stay with you. Great stuff and love the mixing of an almost Flemish red and a wheat beer.

Davros (2024) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2012
Pours hazy amber with a small head. Nose shows acidic funky notes, doughy wheat, lemon and orange peel. Very refreshing flavours, with some sourness, a bit of wheat and lemon. Well-suited high carbonation and light body. Very refreshing stuff.

GothGargoyle (1416) - 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.
