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.

MoritzF (8493) - 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 (5000) - 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!

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 9, 2009
Bottle shared by larsga. Low dense white head. Greyish-golden body with floaters. Sharp and dry, spicy and wheathy aroma. Notes of citrus zest. Crisp, bordering to astringent wheat flavor. Citrus and spice notes. Light-bodied, rough on the palate though. Dry finish with notes of tannins.

larsga (6213) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2009
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 Medium offwhite head. Hazy yellow body with lots of little particles. Earthy spicy coriander aroma with mealy notes. Dry mealy earthy taste with grainy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish resiny spicy earthy aftertaste with herbal coriander notes. Not that much flavour, but no off-tastes. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly web order. This is the second rating. First rated an infected bottle received in a trade.)

bierkoning (10210) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2009
Swing top bottle from Allen, thanks! Pale blonde, cloudy. lemon, yeast, chalk and vinegar in the aroma. Lemony sour flavor with notes of wine vinegar and onion. Intentional infection? The result is certainly drinkable.

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2009
330 ml bottle. Hazy golden colour. Small white head. Citrusy and refreshing aroma. Slightly acidic. Cat piss. Quite dry aroma and more so in the flavour. Wheaty flavours. Watery at times as well. High carbonation level. Hop bitterness is there, but shows up more in the finish.

DuffMan (6751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 14, 2009
Trade with Allen. Pours an opaque cloudy straw yellow with a brief dense white meringue of a head that rather quickly fades away. Sourish aroma of floral perfume, wheat, orange oil, and mild spices. Light palate with flavours of wheat and honey, lavender, cardamom, and subtle spice. Bordering on sour. Bitterly tart and acidic, like biting a grape seed. I enjoyed this take on a style that usually embodies too much sweetness with the wheat and spices. Instead this is a very austere, lean, bitterly refreshing example. Thanks Allen!
