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. Don’t let ORABELLE’s nature fool you, this is one flavorful brew. Watch out, she’s a charmer- one sip and you’ll be in love.

Pours a lightly cloudy pale straw yellow with one finger of thin fizzy head. Looks viscous. Nose is fine, grainy and vegetal with some banana and lots of raw fruit coming through. Raw Belgian yeast. Grainy and rough flavor, pear or cooked peach.

GTAEgeek (1062) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy gold color, with a thin, off-white head. Mandarin oranges up front, cane sugar, cloves, cinnamon, and black pepper. Sticky sweetness, with a slightly sour undertone, with some musty notes. Medium body, with a hard feel and a little sticky and acidic feel. Overall, this is a sweet and tasty beer, but lacks complexity and depth.

Butters (3684) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Semi hazy yellow pour with decent white head. Nose of orange peel and coriander. flavor is orange pith, wheat, and slight spiciness. Bitterness, but a little sweet vanilla for balance. Not bad, but overly fruit orange bitterness, not so much flavor. Meh.

M82 (220) - Kansas, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Double-Wit with a Tripel influence from appearance to the finish; hazy golden yellow body, light, soft spice, herbal with a light sweet malt base, mellow drink; I’ll go with a 16oz wheat beer glass for the rest of the sixer; could be a gateway beer for a bluemoon lover

jhamp9 (947) - Corinth, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Hazy straw pour with a decent white head. Very strong yeasty banana, orange, coriander aroma. Taste is banana and spice up front with orange coming through in the finish. Medium body. Like a wit on steroids.

jbruner (1974) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with bubbly white head and light lacing. Atoms of Belgian yeast, sweet fruity esters, and bubblegum. Taste is fruity esters, lemon, grapefruit, bubblegum, slight tart quality. Decent for an American tripel, bit of a burn on the way down.

Ratman197 (9028) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of coriander, straw, yeast, fruittiness and light vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of straw, coriander, yeast, light fruittiness and a hint of vanilla with a smooth lingering coriander finish.

rbrazell (1445) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Draft at Proof. Deep hazy gold pour with a bubbly white head. Very fruity bubblegum aroma, light tangerines, hint of sourness, Belgian candy sugar and some sweet pale grains. Flavor similar but falls flat, weak carbonation and medium bodied. Was expecting a decent beer considering the nose, lacks the zesty richness.

Bottle. Belgian yeast, fruity banana, coriander, and white grape aroma. Slightly hazy straw gold with a moderate white head. Creamy sweet honey malt, Belgian yeast, banana, and clove flavor. Medium creamy body, soft carbonation. Very nice.

legion242 (2099) - Richardson, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2013
A very pedestrian example of the style. Poured a medium urine yellow with a light head. Nose was faint and there was a small hint of pepper across the finish.
