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

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2012
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.

bhensonb (10748) - 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.

Draft. Hazy yellow gold color, small white edge head. Aroma of subtle pepper and hay. Taste has a sweet start with plain malt.

BeerandBlues2 (9438) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours nearly clear pale gold with a medium-small tight bubble frothy white head, short retention fading to the glass edge with light spotty lacing. Aroma is lightly fusel alcohol, medium pear and apple fruity esters, medium biscuit and Pils malt, no DMS or diacetyl, faint spicy hops, and light brown paper/sherry oxidation notes. Flavor is light sugar, light notes of dry and spicy/peppery fusel alcohol, light pear esters, dry and crisp biscuit malt backbone, faint hops and light spiciness accentuated by the alcohol and dryness, and a dry finish. Medium-full body, light carbonation, and medium-light alcohol warmth.
