The beer as it sets in my St. Bernardus glass is a scintillating golden amber color, the head miniscule and what is left after it evanesces leaves a patchy sheet of lace. The aroma of over ripe apples comes to mind along with a bit of malt, citrus fresh and clean. Start is sweet, malt laden, the top middling in its mouth feel with the finish biting in its acidity, the hops spicy in their presence. The aftertaste quite dry and long lasting with a trace of alcohol bitterness, quite a nice beer and a great change of pace from the normal French beers.

Wow!! I just love it when a beer comes along and really knock my socks off. I worry that because I am in the business I might become jaded, well it hasn’t happed yet.

Yeti comes from the French Alps and is changing my outlook on French beers. This Golden is just pack with flavor and intense (unlike most of the French beers I have had, not counting Belzabuth). It has a sufficient head with very dense foam. The aroma is fruity, malty, and just a whiff of alcohol. The flavor is intense it has a peach / apricot fruity ester, a phenol spiciness, and a malty round finish. The ample body and smooth round finish makes it glide past your tongue and happily down the throat.

It is not yet available in the US. Normandie Import Corp, located here in Portland, is bringing it over. He is currently looking for distributors. I buy some of his other products (Ciders) so he drop off two samples. It is definitely worth hunting down or pestering you local distributor to carry.
