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

From the bomber bottle as a gift from my neighbor Bob. You probably won’t find a better triple made on this side of the ocean than this one from Elysian. Color is perfect as is the light effervescence. The nose is delicate and taste runs to the sweeter side, but seems appropriate to balance the yeast elements. High points as well for the mysterious robed lady label. I’m hoping this becomes a seasonal for 2012.

A nice interpretation of a Tripel, but the nose delivers more than the palate. Light to medium bodied, this shows some nice spicy/sweet balance and plenty of tree fruit on the finish. Good beer.

Almost no head when poured from bottle. Light wheat color. Very faint melon aroma. Taste was almost like cantelope with a hint of peach. Left a film in the mouth that was not desirable. Overall it was a good beer but not great. I think it would be good on a hot summer day.

Holy cannoli! This is a good beer. Pardon the Italo-American phrase I use when describing this French/Belgian inspired beer. Eysian Brew Co. sure has established itself as one of the Super-Heavy Weights in the Micro-Brew world. They got everything right when they made their 2011 Tripel.

Bottle. Pours a light gold yellow, with small white head. Aroma of banana and a hint of malts. Taste is sweet, with wheat, banana, and citrus. I don’t know much about this style, but it kinda tastes like a stronger version of a hef to me...

The new Bete Blanche is amber, with a slight haze, and not much head. Lightly phenolic and lightly malty aroma. Has some strength, a peppery spiciness, and a firm, slightly bready and slightly crackery malt character. Not exciting but functional.

650ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with 2 fingers of white head that settled quite quickly leaving some spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains with some yeast and spices. Taste is fruity and malty sweet with some yeast and spices and a lingering hoppy bitter finish. Medium body and lively carbonation leave a nice mouth feel. Not one of the better tripels that I have tasted, merely acceptable.

Draft @ St. Augustines. Clear gold. Doesn’t look great in taster glass. Sweet white flesh fruit, white plum, loquat, honeydew. Flavors are honeyed wildflower. Soft palate. Not an Elysian classic but nice beer.

Bubbly gold with thin white head. The aroma is mildly estery, but bread and grass dominate, with some sulfur in the background. Taste is the same, with a bit more bitterness than expected. Overall, fairly drinkable, but I wouldn’t call this a tripel.
