COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

It is a nice experience with this beer. I drank it in Lausanne in the Simplon, close to the station. The color is yellow gold and troubled. The carbonation is medium and the foam is thin. It is a kind of beer like a witbeer with more character and there is a side sparkling and bitter. We could smell the "coriandre" and there is a side of grapefruit.

Nonshaugen (652) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2016
33 cl, bottle condidtioned, flip cap. Hazy, pale yellow, very thin head. Aroma is sweet wheat malt, it’s spicy and fruity. Same notes to the flavour, mouthfeel is low carbonation, quite crispy with a dry aftertaste. Nice one.

On tap at the Blue Monk in Buffalo. Arrived in what appeared to be a tulip-snifter hybrid. Appearance: Hazy orange-gold, capped with a thin head of white foam that lingered a bit. Spotty lacing. Smell: Funky, musty grass, laden with tart light fruits - pears, oranges, and melon. Taste: That musty, mildewy funk comes through loud and clear on each sip, leading a procession of vaguely tart light fruits. Orange and tangerine are both present, mildly tart and somewhat moldy, followed by pear and melon flavors, both cantaloupe and honeydew. A grassy, hay-like tone hangs in the background throughout, and here and there, some bits of fermented white grape manifest. Mouthfeel: Medium of body and moderate of carbonation. Overall: The bar, and Untappd, both listed this as a biere de garde, and for one of those, it was acceptable. For a witbier, this is an interesting take on the style, with much more funk and much less spice than I’d expect. Either way, I’d consider drinking it again.

Bottle. Pours a pale golde with a fast and fully diminishing head... Smells of wheat and yeast, of which the there was a coat of round the bottle-opening and flip-off cap. Hint of clove. Taste is not very exciting, but it’s not bad either. Just plain wheat notes with a light pungency. Hints of sweetness and very faint hints of bitterness. Light, close to fizzy on the palate.

Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Ytterligare ett öl helt förändrat av en infektion. Riktigt vete/lakto/citronsurt med en hel del stall och brett karkatär. Kunde varit roligt men här blir det skevt, astringent och väl surt. Tack Daniel!
