COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian-style Tripel. A twist on the French expression "Bete Noire", Bete Blanche is extremely drinkable, blonde and somewhat treacherous.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle out of the cellar. Pours hazy golden, thick white head, quite persistent, lovely lacing. Nose is spicy, lots of Belgian yeast and coriander notes, some soap, some really pretty florals and cold cream turn up as this warms, as well. Light citrus, mostly oranges and lemons, as well as hints of tropical fruit and melon. In the mouth this is moderately dry, with the melon and tropical fruit persistent, more cold cream, along with some real banana notes. Spicy in the mouth, with little apparent alcohol. Lovely stuff!

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2011
bomber. Pours hazy yellow gold with white head, nice lacing, into trappist glass. Aroma of clove, wheat, spices, some fruitiness, banana. Almost smells like a hefeweizen. Medium to full bodied, pretty smooth and creamy. Flavor is creamy wheat, banana, with some white grape lending a soft bitterness to the finish. Pretty good for a $4.99 bomber. Refreshing, kind of like a double hefeweizen or something.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and TylerDurden. Hazy golden, generous white head. spicy, yeasty, banana aroma with a strong estery quality. Spicy flavour profile, strong on cloves, banana and lemon fruit accents, some chamomile and yeast.

scottw86 (1094) - Maryland, USA - APR 22, 2011
Poured a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma has lots of lemon with some tart doughy notes. Also some yeast and pale malts with spices. Taste is pretty hoppy with some light fruit sweetness. Not terribly complex, and there are not as many yeast flavors as the aroma suggested. Finish is a bit dry with grapes. Overall not bad.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2011
The pour is a clear gold color with an average, white, pillowy head which is mostly diminishing but leaves some foamy lace. The nose is pleasant; woodsy, peppery, estery yeast, clove, and slight banana bread. The flavor is similar but lacking depth or length with banana bread still, clovey, slight yeast, and woodsy but turning leafy and bitter towards the finish. The palate is light to medium, lively, and creamy/watery in texture. The beer finishes with a more than moderate bitterness of twigs and tea leaves, cloves, and hints of yeast esters. The nose is similar to NB Trippel, but the other aspects lack character. This could use more of a malt presence or increased yeasty tones; either way, it is a very run-of-the-mill tripel.

drjay44 (2615) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Shared with Gabe. Pours a medium lasting white head, over slightly hazy yellow (SRM 4) body...nose is light floral honey, light cereal, hints of several spices, including allspice, clove.....taste is light cereal, bit of spice including clove, finishing with a pepper, bitter hop bite, ending with a very light fusel burn...mouth feel is light, alcohol present, carbonation high. This is not as deep in the spice aromas and flavors as many, but it is very obviously a Tripel. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

fiulijn (14381) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2011
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Hazy blond color; small creamy head. Light aroma of dirty water and banana. Dry mouthfeel, wheat flavor, light banana; the ending bitterness is a bit too strong. Atypical, not Belgian, but ok.

manuchampions (1236) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2011
650ml bottle from 16th St.Liquor in West Vancouver. Pours a medium gold with thin ring of off-white head remaining. Aroma is certainly candied Belgian yeast, bubble gum and mild pear fruitiness. Taste is more bubblegum, crisp slightly floral hops, again a sweet pear note, some lingering pepper and spice. Finish has good mouthfeel, crisp, some apple near the end. But isn’t 7.5% a little more dubbel than tripel? Enjoyable.

Camons (5865) - Hasselager, DENMARK - APR 8, 2011
Tap @ Freshcraft, Denver. Pours light golden with a 1 cm white head. Aroma is belgian yeast, fruit, banan and apples. Taste is much like aroma, sweet fruit with some spices added. Thin to medium body, low carbonation. Pretty good. 070411

adnielsen (9025) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2011
On tap @ Freshcraft. Slightly hazy, orange-yellow appearance with a big foamy, cream colored shirt. Yeast and pretty fruity bouquet (orange, banana, lemon) in the Belgian ale nose. Slightly tart, banana/orange citrusy flavor that’s quite and a slight booze flavor. Fruity, Belgian yeasty finish.
