2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
0,2L draught sample@ Bierdorf Tettnanger Hopfenwandertag 2014. Final pour on the keg as "Yeti": almost mahogani, murky, with low head. Ripe peach compote, cinnamon, roast, pear make for a very unusual IPA taste profile by any standard, with no crispness, but for a nice enough Bavarian ale (cf. Maisel & Friends).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Hallertauer Bierfestival 2012. Attractive dark orange clouds, offwhite lace. Leafy and citrusaromatic hops, a bit peach, minerally yeast, slightly necrotic I am afraid. Nice orangepeel finish. Mellow sparkly mouthfeel on a chewy body (better than the American Yeti I would say). Nice.
