22 oz bomber from Roths Sunnyslope Market,Salem. $3.99
2012 version 7.4% alc
Straw coloured clear body with a large frothy white head.
Aroma is alarmingly subdued and almost lagerish..
The atste is quite nice spicy, phenols,peppery also alcohol is harsh.
Did not like the palate really it becomes cloying as soon as this heats up.
Very dissapointed..this is only drinkable at very chilly temps as it heats up it all falls apart yespr (48876) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2012
From tap at the Pike brewpub location. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is roasted malty and light yeasty fruity to spiced. Kept on the dry and phenolic sides. Dry malty and smooth fruity to dry hoppy into the finish. stchloe (1118) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Oh I quite like this, especially that its a triple. Lighter head and body, but with nice yeasty notes. Not too sweet or estery. Syzzer (736) - Oregon, USA - MAR 5, 2012
A decent wit style beer. Good frothy white head. It is a fairly simple composition with detection of coriander. MarkSachon (1062) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2012
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. joeyray700 (17) - motley, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2012
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. bpreo (3011) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 5, 2012
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. improvjock (328) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2012
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... Oakes (19332) - 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.
