COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Orabelle is brewed with barley, wheat, and rye. This Belgian-style tripel is a golden beauty. Its two yeast strains, orange peel, and dash of corriander impart suprising complexity and richness to this delicate ale. Donít let ORABELLEís nature fool you, this is one flavorful brew. Watch out, sheís a charmer- one sip and youíll be in love.

The aroma is a little faint with some spice coming through. The pour is a cloudy gold with a thin white head that leaves some lacing. The flavor is slightly subtle as well for a triple. Itís very smooth and easy drinking at 8.3% but there just isnít that awesome explosion in taste. Itís a solid beer but just not one of the better triples that Iíve had.

Yellow color with a fizzy white head. Orangey nose with some coriander spice and yeast. Traditional tripel flavors of bitter orange peel, coriander, spice and yeasty bread dough. Tingly on the tongue with a strong alcohol sense to it. Very nice tripel.

Pour is a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with a little Belgain yeast. Flavor is about the same fruity and sweet candi sugar to start with some Belgian yeasty esters left after the swallow. This was decent but a little too much sweetness.

Bottle. Pours cloudy bright hay. Aroma is slightly fruit, a little funky and a lot of sweet. Taste is a pleasant balance of sweet, tart, light cereal, a bit of citrus....dangerously drinkable. More like a hefeweizen than a big belgian.

ben4321 (4093) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 3/13/13

Aroma: The nose is spicy, with plenty of Belgian yeast, lemon/orange peel, other fruit, and some wheat
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a small white head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is heavy on the Belgian yeast with lots of spice and some fruity sweetness too
Palate: The body of this one is light-medium, it has a tingly feel, mild stickiness, and a spicy finish
Overall Impression: For me, this one is pretty solid. It is certainly a spice forward beer but thereís plenty of fruity sweetness as well. I donít have any major qualms with it, but it isnít exceptional either. A very solid beer.

Sunburst orange fluffy white head. Aroma of candy pineapple and Belgian yeast. Taste similar. Pretty typical for the style.

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits in Athens. Estery, light peach, sour pineapple aromas. Hazy light straw color, littl head. Nice fruit initial, with some orange peel / mid goes a bit too sugary, some cereal, some coriander / smooth cookeish, floury final, with residual bitterness. Medium body. A deeply flavored blonde tripel.
