BuckeyeSammy (537) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Tart! Apricot spice aroma. Not much in the appearance category. Flavor is very enjoyably tart, notes of grapes. I want one more bottle, very interesting beer.

bhensonb (10814) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle. Dry, fruity aroma. Hazy orange tinged golden color with a white head that flattened quickly. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Slightly sourish dry fruit flavor with some offsetting sweet malt. Possibly some floral hop. The finish is almost dry, and a bit woody. Some citrus develops. Very good ale.

Tmoney99 (10472) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2007
Bottle from Jungle Jim’s. Poured a hazy golden with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate tart fruit and alcohol aroma. Medium body, thick particles wth lively carbonation. Medium balanced fruity sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish with a very small alcohol tone. Good brew.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2007
[581-20070906] 330mL (w/ jerc). Apricot spice aroma with strong sweet pine resin and wood notes. Cloudy, brown orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head and some bits floating at the bottom. Flavour is sweet pine resin and burnt wood, some floral, something like ginger and a smoky background. Medium body has some astringency. Very interesting aromatic characteristics, alcohol is noticeable but not overwhelming -- certainly shows shades of snowy yeti slopes.

jercraigs (7648) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2007
Bottle from Rozi’s in Cleveland, shared with Mabel. Golden yellow body with a good sized head at first, but it fades rather quickly. Strange aroma is kind of neat, odd fruity character (pineapple? mango or apricot) moderate spice that I do not really know, light floral note. Similar flavours with a very fruity main component with the spice as an accent, very light hints of alcohol. Smooth average palate. I like this, but it really does not make me want a second one.

Golden in colour with floating particles. Smells of orangy crush or tang. Very tangy and fruity in taste. Slight metallic undertone.

i thought it looked pretty cool. i opened it, and smelled it, then poured it in a bottle, smelled it more, sipped it, tasted it. thought it was a bit too sweet for me, but i liked its color. dont think id go nuts about it, but if someone offered it to me, id drink it again.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2007
330 ml bottle. Deep golden brown pour with a spare light tan head that drops off quickly. Aroma of figs, dates, and dark caramel. Smooth and rich, lightly carbonated, with a medium to full body. Molasses sweetneess up front that is offset by some peppery bitterness. Finishes slightly sweet, but there is a pleasing light tartness as well. Easy to drink, and the alcohol not really a factor.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Rated 12/29/06: Golden yellow, crisp, refreshing, and really a treat to be enjoyed. This Yeti sparkles through a vibrant hazy gold color in the glass with a huge white head and lots of white cloudy lacing. Sour maltiness with a very earthy yeast scent. Bready and full, the sourness parts to a quick sweetness before a crisp smooth swallow. Flavor is addictive and very good on a grand scale. Grapes and a tiny pinch of citrus come through. The alcohol is well masked which could make this dangerous as a session brew. Probably the best beer I’ve had from France.
