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.

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.

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.

thewolf (11206) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle. [thanks Mark]
Pours muddy, pale yellow wit a medium, fizzy, white head. Stays as a thin film. Aroma has mild citric zest, some wheat, light funkiness. Medium to high carbonation, fairly light and mild watery palate. Flavour has good citric zest, light tartness, quite fresh. Mild wheaty sweetness. Just a tad too thin for my liking.

RichardGretton (4274) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle. Pale cloudy yellowy beer with a strong head. The aroma is sour and mildly spiced, and the flavour is sour and fruity with a dry finish. Overall an average Belgian witbier.

Skinnyviking (7177) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2010
Swingtopbottle at the courtesy of Nick. High fluffy long lasting white head. Hazzy milky yellow body. Floral and coriander lemon aroma. Relatively acidic fruty fresh grapefruit pine flavor with a good deal of carbonation and a long aftertaste. Quite refreshing.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - NOV 8, 2010
Cloudy golden with a fast disappearing head. Peculiar BFM sour nose a bit overwhelmed by a strong clove note. The flavour is spicy and sour, lemon dry.

MJGG (951) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2010
Bouteille de 33 cl, rapportée de Genève par Janusz et Rachel. Arômes de levure (pain frais), de blé et d’épices. Robe paille très pâle et trouble, légère mousse et effervescence moyenne. Plutôt mince en bouche et bien sèche, la bière se montre très rafraîchissante. La levure, presque funky, apporte de belles notes épicées et fruitées. Le blé et les épices (écorce d’orange, poivre) sont également remarqués. Finale légèrement acide. Une très bonne witbier, complexe tout en demeurant légère.

Quack-Duck (8002) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2010
bottle, vielen Dank an Allen! Hazy pale yellow colour, large white head- sourish wheaty nose. Wheaty, quite sour with a citrusy character, slightly hoppy. A bit sour for the style, otherwise quite nice.

sebletitje (6849) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2010
33cl bottle. pours golden, thin white head. aroma, definitely has some lingering sour notes followed by zesty citrus and wheat. flavors, light fizzy mouthfeel, some spices and citrus, sour aspect is present but not overpowering, still enough to make this beer a little different from the regular style. Carbonation is lively and at times overly fizzy with the yeast and citrus adding to the finish.
