Le secret de la Chameau réside dans le subtil mélange proportionné des différents malts. Mais sa réussite ne pourrait être assurée sans l’apport aromatique des houblons finement choisis et sans la rare souche de levures belges de haute fermentation utilisée lors de sa fabrication.

I think that it is a good beer. The color is between brown and copper. The taste is between malt-caramel and some hops. The taste is strong at the beginning in the mouth but after is disappearing. This brewery is now becoming popular in Lausanne and the region.

Cloudy amber colour, moderate sized slightly yellowish off-white head; aroma of maltyness, floral hops, earthy-yeasty notes and maybe some fruitiness; taste of malty sweetness, yeast, spicyness and some floral-honey notes

330ml bottle served in an ordinary glass. A: Pours a dark brown color forming a medium white to yellow head. Mefium retention and some molasses lacings left in the glass S: Quite malty and toffee. Lots of caramel and caramel malts in the nose. Roasted malts, earthy yeasts. Yeasts have a strong belgian character. A bit fruity with some notes of flowery hops T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong caramel profile. Dark fruits, earthy yeasts and a considerable hoppy bitter end which is a bit out of the style M: Medium body and carbonation. Roasted malts and hoppy bitter aftertaste O: Average ale [ BA Review @ 3/8/2013 ]

Pours hazy amber with a small beige head. Malts, caramel, spice in aroma. Some sweetness and also alcohol in taste. Not entirely my cup of tea.

trapped (1141) - New York City, TURKEY - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber color with beige foamy head that dissipates quickly, caramel aroma, slightly bitter roasted malt taste with a caramel finish, high carbonation. Interesting but the caramel is a bit overpowering.

Very surprised by some of the negative comments (although most are from years ago). I live in Lausanne and went on a tour of the Dr. Gab’s brewery recently. They have only been doing it full time for 2 years so imagine their product is a lot better than when they were just brewing at weekends while studying but their beers are now very popular (as well as very good!) in this region.
