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

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours golden and pretty clear. A fat creamy head of bone white foam falls pretty quickly to a thin ring. leaves sheets of lace to slide back into the glass as you drink. The nose is shy on this one. Itís lovely sweet pale malts, tropical fruit sweetness and the zest of a lime. Nice citrus peel and as it warms some lemon peel shows up. No alcohol on the nose but there is a faint musk as ti warms.

Taste is abundant. The malts are pale but sweet , lightly breaddy and the tropical fruit sweetness takes the middle of the beer. It seems to never end and you can taste it long after the finish. There is a faint hop spice on the back end with a touch of hop bitter to finish this dry and a little grassy. A touch of astringency as well as a bit of warmth from alcohol in the finish. The mouthfeel is thin, the carbonation is ample but soft and this beer is just lovely.

From a bottle. Cloudy light orange. Slightly biscuity tropical fruit, pink peppercorns, and cardamom. A bit flat in flavor and carbonation; I was hoping for more complexity and a sprightlier feel. Certainly not bad.

AirForceHops (3958) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 4, 2013
12 oz. bottle purchased at Oliverís Beverage Center, Albany, NY. Typical cloudy gold with a thin ring of white head without much retention. Nose is dried fruit, candy sugar and Belgian yeast. Fruit notes. Taste is similar to the nose, dried peaches, banana notes. Apricot hints. Body is grainy with a moderate malt profile. Sugary sweetness and covers any alcohol flavor. Dry texture. Overall good example of the style.

blankboy (6400) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle [12oz] . Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Some lacing. Odd aroma of tomato paste, herbs, yeast, pear and white pepper -- or something like that. Flavour is only slightly more straightforward, with yeast, herbs, a bit of tomato paste, white pepper and wheat. Medium bodied. An odd one indeed, not for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tomer (1919) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUL 6, 2013
At a tasting, thanks Yoav, a touch hazy light orange colour, aroma of popcorn, peanuts and hay, sweet candy jammy flavour and a coarse bitterness, much too sweet and unbalanced. One dimensional and uninteresting.

This beer doesn't particularly compare to an abbey tripel as it purports, but it's a good ale that I keep stocked in my fridge as kind of a flavorful session beer.
