3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Moderate amber with a 1 1/2" fluffish head. Slightly peach hop aroma with a lovely malt-dusted bouquet. Malts and soapy hops in flavor with nice, fruity esters. Well balanced.

What the...? Is this apple cider or a Belgian ale? That’s all I detected in this thick, sugary brew. And the particles suspended in the glass might be interesting but I found it a bit disturbing. Not my bag, baby.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled March 2007
Pours with a brilliantly clear, gold to almost copper color. It is topped by a frothy, barely one-finger thick, off white colored head. The aroma has an interesting fruitiness to it that is a mix of berries of tropical fruit. It is hard to pinpoint, but perhaps it is best described as a mix of strawberries, guava and ripe kiwi; it is almost more like a fruity bubble gum with its large almost artificial fruitiness. The aroma is certainly quite distinctive, and I really can’t smell much else.
The flavor is quite a bit drier, and much more tart than I would have guessed given the aroma. The artificial fruitiness is still here in the flavor, though it is toned down a bit because of the dryness of the beer. The body of this beer is quite light, especially for a beer of this strength. I would not say it is a quaffing beer though, as the flavors don’t quite lend itself to that. This beer is totally different than I was expecting, much more funky & tart than a random French brewery might suggest.
