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.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 26, 2008
Bottled 33cl. It pours a pale hazy yellow beer with a creamy white head. Lively carbonation. A lot of sediment. The nose is medicinal with notes of honey, oranges, juniper berries, cloves and marzipan. A hint of pumpkin. Extremely distinctable and strong. A huge amount of cloves in the taste. Notes of celery. Yeasty and acidic. Interesting. Not at all enjoyable though. Woody. Decent bitterness. Remarkably "christmassy". Strange. Plenty of character but not enjoyable.

thebeertourist (4821) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2008
Bottle. Pours orange golden and cloudy. The head is rather minimal. A great complex aroma, a lot of acidity, lemony with orange zest and spices. Geuze character. The sour lemony and orange zest flavours find balancing honey sweetness. An outstanding beer!

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2008
(Bottle, BB May 2009) Pours a lightly hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of coriander, orange peel, floral, herbs, and grass. Flavor of lemon, wheat, coriander, honey, floral hops, banana, and orange peel with a bitter finish.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2008
Bottle courtesy of mgermani: Poured a medium yellow color ale with a pure white bubbly head with average retention but no lacing. Aroma of light wheat malt is not the most interesting. Taste is a mix between some light wheat malt notes with no spices really discernable and some traces of sourness. Full body with some limited filtration and some medium carbonation. Definitely not the best beer fro this usually fine brewery.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - OCT 1, 2007
Bottled. Yellow clearly color, rather hazy with discreet bubbly aspect. Adherent and compact head. Rather acidulous aroma with notes of lemon and damnpen cereals. Much lively and coolness taste, decidedly sourly and acidulous with a light bitterish final. A lot watery end with insufficient resistance.

Enjoyit (3460) - Vadum, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2007
Amber of color with a short living white head. An aroma of sherry, apples, oak and sweet malt. A flavor of oak, apples, notes of spice and sweets, sour notes.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 7, 2007
Bottled, alc. 5.5 % (bottled 05/2006)
Hazy orange color, small firm white head. Sour fruity aroma, almost lambic-like. Wheaty, sourish brew with hints of honey and coriander. Fruity acidic aftertaste. Unique witbier.

Dedollewaitor (13923) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2007
Wondered what this was when I had it. BB 2005, old dirty bottle. Unclear yellow with no head. Sour white wine aroma. Vinous vinegar taste. Fruits (apple) & honey are traced. Acidic flavor & watery body! Might have been infected?
