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

(bottle - 22 oz) Hazy gold pour with a fluffy white head. Surprisingly light aroma for a tripel, but you definitely get some light spice and yeast. Mildly sweet and malty beginning with a very nice fruity spice middle and a warming and yeasty fruit finish.

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 Iíve had.

This has been on the shelf in the beer cellar for a couple years. Pours a honey orange with a good size white head and light lacing. Nose is lightly roasted caramel malts and some noble hops tending toward floral. Medium plus in body. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is floral and spicy. There is some stone fruit in the peppery finish. Really enjoyable.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Smooth opening with hints of candied citrus in the nose. Accents of lemongrass tickle the tastebuds before a warming finish. Definitely one i will have again. --you've been Dubbed.

I get that belgian yeast aroma with bit of orange and a touch of a floral hop note in this cloudy pale orange brew with a small white head of tiny bubbles. An upfront bitter taste is quickly overcome by a sweet malty fruity flavor in this medium bodied brew. Not a bad brew but i think a tripel should be a bit more pale and more of a yeasty flavor. Worth a but for sure.

Set out for a classic tripel, this was not totally what I expected. Pours a honey orange. Faint head fades quickly. Very sweet up front. Sugary. Fades to hints of orange. Not bad, but not what I expected.

Aroma of banana and cloves, some Belgian yeast strain. Pours a clear yellow into the tulip glass. Taste is similar to the aroma except that there is way too much malted sugars here, cloying sweetness. Finish is fairly dry but again, the sugars overwhelm the yeast here, not very appetizing.

BeerandBlues2 (10447) - San Diego, California, 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.
