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

jgb9348 (4710) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Nice rich bronze coloured body with a copper glow and a thick dense tan head. Aroma of yeast, coriander seed and a bit of apples and pear sweetness. Medium-bodied; Strong yeast flavour with bits of wheat, coriander seed and some light hay and grassy hop flavours with some pleasant light sweetness. Aftertaste is nice and light for a tripel, but showing good wheat and yeast flavours with some mild sweetness. Overall, a nice lighter tripel but also with some good complexity - nice to sample, even though this beer is from the Mainland! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska for US$1.80 on 23-May-2013 sampled two days later in my hotel room here in Anchorage, Alaska on 25-May-2013.

MrBeerFanatic (850) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 4, 2013
Pours an almost clear medium yellow with a foamy frothy head. Aromas fruity (tangerine, bubblegum), hoppy (grass, hay), with just a touch of caramel behind. Flavors fall short of aromas of light tangerine, grass, and hay. Light bitter aftertaste, slightly watery on palate, lightly sweet. A slightly above the average triple with a slightly distinctive "tangerine" like note.

pdx77 (1335) - Oregon, USA - MAR 31, 2013
From bottle. Golden color. Light yeast and sweet aroma. Hints of bubblegum, light malt, soft peppery spice, and a little sweetness. Not as hearty as a traditional tripel, more like a strong saison.

BrewDad (4922) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Yellowish blonde in color with a thick white head hazy. Thick aroma tons of esters and lots of fruit and Belgian yeast in the beer. Very tasty and drinkable tripel.

Dogbrick (7992) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Sample at the Pike Street location. The beer pours a hazy orange-gold color with a medium white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, yeast and citrus. Medium body with flavors of citrus, earthy yeast and malt. The finish is fruity with a yeast and banana aftertaste. Decent overall.

Elwood (3079) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy deep gold with a thin white head. The head doesn’t last long. The nose smells like fermenting peaches and apricots with a hint of prune. The flavor is fruity and sweet with a good bit of apricot. There is a hint of Redman Golden Blend in there too. Medium body with average carbonation. Sweet finish.

Brouwerij (920) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear orange-gold with a finger of coarse white head. Settles to thin cap quickly with some stringy lacing. Aroma is wheaty, sweet, and soapy. Flavor is mildly bitter, fades into citrus tones with herbal and spicy character and a slight hop bitter. Mild maltiness in finish. Soft carbonation, medium body, and smooth, mildly astringent mouthfeel. An interesting, spicy tripel.

UncleKorm (788) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle poured a hazy orange hue w/ a medium frothy off-white head mostly diminishing and good lacing. A moderate aroma of dough, pear, and grapefruit. Initial flavor light sweet with a light bitter finish of short duration. Taste has a grapefruit bite that dominates what is in the nose. It makes for a very bright and drinkable Tripel. Medium bodied, dry texture, lively carbonation, and a moderate alcoholic feel in the finish.

flylikeabanana (178) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle pours golden with a light white head, lively carbonation and a dry, balanced palate. Hops are tropical, cantaloupe, and the aftertaste is a bit malty.
