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.

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 (1300) - 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 (2996) - 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.

gnoff (7934) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2011
33 cl swing-top bottle, thanks to tkrjukoff!
BB NOV 2011, sampled on April 1, 2011
Label marked with 5.5% ABV
Shady yellow color, big frizzy white head. Spicy, apcricot scent. A bit stale, citrus, sort of acidic, peach taste. Apple and mineral aftertaste. Moussy mouthfeel, low bitterness.
OK in small amounts, but more for tasting than drinking to me.

ekstedt (5487) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2011
Bottle (33 cl swing-top), thanks to tkrjukoff. Hazy golden, medium white head. Sourish aroma with green apples, and a faint note of rubber. Dry and acidic. Not very good.
