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.

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.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2004
[At Fete de la Biere 2004, Lausanne] An amber beer with a lasting beige head. The aroma is very fresh with notes of oranges. The flavor is slightly sour with notes of malt and caramel.

Bottled. Thanks to a clever friend who put the small exploding bottle inside a big beer mug when it erupted upon opening there was actually enough beer left to sample. Muddy brown colour. The fizzing eruption left the remaining beer absolutely flat. Yeasty and unpleasantly plastic nose. Acidic thin body, and a luckily tasteless finish.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2003
Light amber color, with red shades; frothy head. Strange aroma, sweet; some yeast. Unpleasant flavor, bad mix, nearly rotten, with a hint of liquorice at the end. Poor final.

I didn"t experience any explosion, but anyway I would not ask for more than 4cl ;o)

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2010 re-rate, 10/2010; courtesy of Pierre-André Priamo and the Gab’s crew - a hazy amber-bronze colour with a persistent beige foam; nice lacework; a solid yeasty and spicy aroma (nutmeg dominates); medium to full-bodied, a fair carbonation, some sweetness below and a solid astringent bitterness; very long estery and spicy finish with fair fruity notes and hints of candi sugar - the doctors have finally mastered this one :-)
re-rate, 6/2004 - the beer is still a bit nervous after the opening, but nothing tragic this time :-); cloudy dark orange colour, nice head, orangezest, a bit yeasty, deeply overcarbonated with a brutal and aggressiv bitterness, very dry bitter finish with notes of alcohol - a failure (4/5/3/2/5)
12/2002 (3/2/3/1/3) - I have already had plenty of bad surprises while opening a bottle, but this one is now holding the record. Its foam sprang up out of the bottle like a geyser and I felt suddenly like the winner of a F1 Grand-Prix. From the initial 25 cl, all what I finally got was about 4 cl. OK for a single malt but quite short for a beer. This does not really matter anyway because this beer has very probably been altered. The colour is pale brown; the aroma is earthy, malty with notes of banana and vase; it is oily, heavy with a very unpleasant sourness in the finish. Am I unfair to rate this beer ? Yes, I am. But this is what can happen if you don’t master the bottling of your beer.
