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.

Nickls (1809) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - JUN 25, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) Pours with a thinner pure white head; very hazy light orange-yellow color. Is there Brett in this? Maybe as it’s a little acidic, light fruits, slight funky in an Orval kind of way for the aroma. Hint of citrus up front, green apples, a little sour and I swear there’s a bit of funk hiding in there as well. A little floral...several layers going on here. Lightish, carbonation was fairly soft; a little silky. Nice enough drinking, and paired up well with prosciutto and gruyere

mross (169) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 14, 2010
Bottle. Very cloudy blond with a nice fizzy white head. Very nice aroma of sweet malt, fruit, citrus, spice and yeast. It has a touch of funkyness. It has a sweetish honey flavour of grapefruit with a wonderful lemon sourness from the wheat, almost like sherbet in character. Prickly mouthfeel with some spicyness and dryness in the finish but really refreshing. A very interesting beer.

Pours hazy yellow with rich white head. Citrus, fruits and acidly sweet aroma with yeasty tones. Citric acidy dry fruity flavor. Bitter fresh and a bit sweet on the palate with odd bitter sour and dry aftertaste with a hint of hops.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2010
(swing top bottle, 33cl, with thanks to Allen) Hazy, pale golden colour with a blond mid-sized foamy head. Sweet and slightly sour fruity (citrus) and wheaty aroma with very present coriander spice and traces of soap/vegetables. Moderately sweet and sour flavour, light to medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Delicately yeasty, wheat-malty taste with notes of citrus and rather modest notes of coriander; almost dry, sourish and slightly tart and spicy finish. 17.I.10

kappldav123 (4700) - GERMANY - SEP 2, 2009
The bottle looks simple, but good. The beer in the glass quite light, huge head, modest turbid. Sourish aroma. Starts fine fruity like lemon and apricot, quite sourish. Finish is a bit dry-floury. Still quite drinkable. Good one. Big thanks to Allen for the bottle!
