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

bhensonb (11260) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Bomber from Harry & Davids in Medford, OR. Pours light orange gold with a foamy white head - but not much of a head. Aroma is lightly cooked caramel with some yeast/spice notes. There’s more than that, but hard to describe. Full bodied. There’s a lot of yeast/spice, but also there seems to be a lot of noble hop - not grass - more herb. The alcohol is detectable - seems to make figuring out the flavors difficult. Otherwise it’s ok. Finally it seems to go into light pitted fruit, kandi, and yeast/spice. Ending moderately peppery with all the other stuff. Extremely enjoyable.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 29, 2012
2011+ bottle thanks to mora2000. Pours with a very clear, small particle infused golden hued body with a small white head. Aromas are of lemon zest, floral, medium malt character. Somewhat strong yeast that has a distinct musty note. Flavors are zesty, lightly malty, medium esters with some crushed black pepper. Low phenols. Medium bubbles, dry and light bodied, even for a tripel.

Mora2000 (5780) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Always happy to try a new beer from Elysian. The beer pours a golden color with a white head. The aroma has a ton of wheat, as well as some Belgian yeast notes and some orange citrus. The flavor is very similar. There is a lot of orange citrus, as well as some wheat and biscuit malt, as well as a little bit of sugary sweetness and some alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

onceblind (4329) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2012
On tap at Ale House at Amatos. Clear gold with a thin spotty head. Clean aroma of sweet pale malts, a touch of bubblegum, some light fruity esters, and maybe raisin(?). Taste is sweet pale cereal grains but with a drying biscuit yeast presence, some faint light fruity esters, and finishing dry and biscuit yeasty. A little disappointing.

Tap. Pours clear gold with thin, creamy white head; short retention and some lacing. Aroma is spicy and floral hops, bread malt, pears, herbs, and light funk. Flavor balanced malt and hops with light fruit esters; dry, semi-sweet finish. Medium body, low carbonation, and low/medium warmth.

Petronius (55) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2012
Virtually no smell - very very very subtle belgian yeast, fine head; tasted as subtle as it smelled. Then I had some fries with it, and...wow, the beer bloomed. Honey, apricot, apple blossom. Very enjoyable with food, pretty unimpressive by itself.
