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.

A beautiful sweet spic aroma; lots of pepper. Good spice bite from start to finish. Not too sweet or sticky. I really enjoyed this.

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.

Very drinkable, and very good, Bete Blanche is a nice Blonde Tripel, enjoyable by all. It is not a very complex beer, but it is one of the most enjoyable beers I’ve had.

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!

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.

Bomber from Capone’s. My label is a confident vixen with long, thick white hair, burgundy lips and nails, and cupping a chalice of this brew with a sultry look of her face. This babe craves this beer bad, and then she craves something else even badder. The pour is vivid one hour-post-Centrum urine yellow with 2-finger white head. Nose is great medley of florals, yeasty spices, hopcitrus. Tastes floral, spicy, peppery, with yeasty rock sugary notes, hops, limey citrus, coriander, and a very good balance and top notch complexity. This one is very well made, and you won’t be able to stop pouring it into your eager mouth, and you’ll indubutably crave it as much or perhaps even more than you crave the woman on the label.

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.
