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.

RSRIZZO (1853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a Tulip at 40į. Color is a hazy golden yellow with mellow carbonation and a soft white head. Aroma is coriander, orange and Belgian yeast. It has a medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor has a nice sour note as the citrus and spice meld with the yeast giving it an almost White taste. In the after taste the coriander and spice hang on with a mild bitterness. Overall this is a great brew, I think it leans more to the characteristics of a White and the 8.3% abv is very nice.

brokensail (10955) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Pale orange colored pour with a nice haze to it and a tall white head. Slight lemon zest aroma along with coriander, pepper, banana, and orange peel. Yeast and a somewhat nice dry malt profile, too. The flavor is heavy on the banana and citrus character. Somewhat dry, but a bit of malt and sugar sweetness. Coriander and pepper spiciness, light lemon, and a yeasty finish.

tap at Dash In on 2/2/13 - Pours a cloudy grapefruit color with an aroma of citrus and yeast spice. The flavor is sweet and citrus rich with yeast esters. Itís medium bodied and bubbly with the sweetness carrying through into the finish along with some lingering yeast spice. Itís a good brew though somewhat lacking in character.

onceblind (4078) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Hazy gold with a thin foamy white head. Estery nose with pale grains and peppercorn with a bready yeasty sweetness. Taste is also not as dry as I had hoped, but it has that quintessential Great Divide balance. Flavor is peppery and yeasty with a pale grain background, kinda slightly fruity. Lots of coriander too.

emacgee (4026) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2013
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 (1227) - 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 (3766) - 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 (288) - 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; Iíll go with a 16oz wheat beer glass for the rest of the sixer; could be a gateway beer for a bluemoon lover

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 (2318) - 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.
