COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Robuste et surprenante, la Yéti est une bière forte pour les amateurs de grandes sensations gustatives. Généreuse et savoureuse, elle est brassée avec le plus grand soin pour lui conférer une richesse aromatique hors du commun. Ses notes épicées et florales contribuent à vous offrir un instant de dégustation privilégié, loin des sentiers battus, sur les cimes du plaisir...

Le nez réserve de surprenants arômes qui s’associent en un torrent de saveurs maltées et houblonnées. La subtilité et la complexité de son bouquet d’arômes et de céréales se disputent à la finesse des houblons. Elle offre une sensation unique de robustesse et de délicatesse.

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.

Thank you Mathieu87 & PriorL! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ “Mathieu’s house cooling party”. BBF 04.14. Light hazy golden, little bubbles. Nose is rotting milky malts, insecticide, rotting esters. Taste is esters & spoiled lemon, sugar, light vinegar, caramel. Watery & lemon acid body. Really flawed, this cannot be just the age. Not good.

Golden color, hazy liquid and medium head. Fruity aroma with caramel and floral notes. Taste is sweet, bitter and with long finish. Great Strong ale!!!

Bottle from the Captain Pub, Annecy. Well, this is a local beer, and when in Savoie, do as the Savoyardes do (although there are few if any locals around and most people are drinking Guinness, but I digress). Dark gold, almost clear. Not a lot of visible carbonation. Light honey and maple syrup aroma. Strong sweet honey taste with a slight souring reprieve kicking in halfway through the sip. A bit messy this one.

For the style prob any worse beer I had in France. Taste more like a lager with alcohol flavors. Not good at all. Not malty. Not toasty. Bitter like a pale ale lager. Pass for sure ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Huge, very dense & fine yellowish head over hazy orangey-golden beer. Sweet nose, with initially quite some vanilla, then more vegetable, spice and a certain acidity suggested. Sourish vegetable/fruity taste; some citrus, but also a bit of vinegar. Pickles? Some toasted malts, not sweet. Acidthinning, light body. Production artisanale? That’s a nice way of saying it tastes like homebrew. Merci à Mathieu!

gegwilson (2864) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle from a Deli in Samoens, France. Pours golden with a white head. Not much aroma. Some yeastiness. The taste starts sweet with spice, citrus, butterscotch and a little vanilla. Pretty good.

freretoc (1536) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 29, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la maison, couleur blonde, mousse moyenne tout comme l’effervescence, une attaque très bière blanche dans l’idée, citronnée et banane et levure spéciale. Fin de bouche sur un grillé désagréable type sauce barbecue premier prix.

MichaelAwesome (6358) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2014
Special because quite strong with just a few aromas containing caramel, sugar, vanilla and some butter. Still easily drinkable but not that wide in range as expected.

McTapps (6396) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from Calisky - many thanks, Fred! The beer pours out in a deep hazy golden-amber colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of Belgian yeast and wheat. Taste of gentle Belgian yeast, bread, wheat, raisins, dried fruits, caarmel and straw. Yeasty-malty sweet finish with a high alcohol finish. Nice one.
