Beautiful bronze colour. Fruity and yeasty aroma with a touch of citrus. Full bodied and a bit sweet. Tastes like a basket of fruit; apricot, mango, melon...... No alcohol flavour whatsoever. Extremly smooth and drinkable. omhper (25128) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2002
Golden coloured. Very aroamtic fruity nose. Full bodied and dryish with very complex flavours. Pleasant, bitter and flowery finish. An outstandingly flavourful ale! lassewan (44) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2002
Very nice flavor and texture. Smooth to drink and extremely nice in the mouth, but with complex body. LarsHolmer (113) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2003
Belgian strong made in France, and they don´t have to be embarrassed,they probably have a much better water in the Savoie than in Belgium. Anyway this ale has many influences from the Abbey style but don´t try more than one if you are going down-hill the day after! 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.

Bottled 33cl. It pours a hazy golden, slightly green? beer with a white head. The nose is of coconut, thyme, cinnamon, litchi, orange, vanilla and peach accompanied by malt and yeast - a wonderfully fruity and spicy aroma. Lots of thyme and fruit showing up in the taste. Nice lacing. Slightly peppery. The alcohol is surprisingly well hidden. Medium bodied. Some vitamin tablets, litchi and mango appearing. Amazing peppery finish with a hint of cinnamon.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2003 Very nice golden color.It had a head that was slightly creamy white with a small amount of lacing on the side of the glass.Aroma was slightly malty some hops,with an almost lemon grass smell to it with a definate coriander smell in there.Nice small bubbles from the carbonation floating to the top.The flavor was malty sweet,very spicy with coriander,orange peel and maybe some apple.Gussler might be correct taste like ripe or over ripe apple.Very pleasant.nice after taste of spiced apple some dried orange and sweet malt.Mild carbonation that works perfectly for this brew.The alcohol is very well hidden,it is undetectable.The finish is sweet fruity and just all around good as hell.By the looks of it this brew isn't that available to ratebeerians but if you can get some plz do it's well worth the experience and even more well worth the money.I gotta give this a perfest score its just so drinkable and so good that i can't say anything bad about.it's very well done.

Light, refreshing, and very pleasant. Just like the French people as a whole, only completely different.
This reminds me of a Belgian, only not as dry and with more flavor than most.
Pours a golden straw color with some chill haze that goes away as the beer warms.
Smells very fruity. Very Belgian in the scent. There's some hints of cinnamon and other light spices.
Tastes good. Apricot is the most obvious flavor. It's rather spicy. The flavors become more complex as the beer gets warmer.
Mouthfeel is full without too much carbonation.
Drinkability rates very high because it's not overly sweet, not too carbonated, and it's quite refreshing. I could easily have several of these. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2004
After finishing and attempting to review Yeti, I feel like a phoney, a failure, a fraud, a fool...there was no way I could pin down any exact associations for the flavor of this brew...it was so unique, so elusive, I couldn’t be anything but impressed...and depressed by my inability to name it!
Appearance: a clean, bright, shiny amber hue, with a smallish white head.
Aroma: utterly unique! Sharp. piney, open, alive, and...strange...I’ve been stuggling with it for days now, for the memory of it’s flavor returns, but it’s so hard to nail! Not too sweet, and not at all sour, candyish, without coming near cloyingness, and a trifle fruity, without resembling any particular fruit I know.
This oddness about the aroma continues throughout the flavor, and I’m utterly dumbfounded. No mistake, it’s good, and tasty, but utterly foreign to any sort of associations I could muster up! No part of my paltry wits can piece it together!...but I try...a blend of fruit and vegetable, a hint of herb, light, but flavorful, with a long, tasty finish.
The 8% ABV doesn’t show up much, and the flavor is memorable, if too mystifying to categorize. I don’t know what category this "truly" belongs to, it’s in an order of it’s own. Glad they found this Yeti! BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Lots of spice, clove and banana in the aroma and flavor. Slightly sweet, lots of carbonation and hints of lemon. This was a really good brew.
