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.

bottle. heavily hazed golden wheat body, small white head, yeast does not come out of suspension. might guess about some sour mash wheat and malt here, thereís a lot of minerals / salted lemon / dish soap / tart citrus acid in the nose, but thereís also some coriander / ginger / peppercorn notes that are affecting it. syrupy, sweet, Belgian-style golden ale, thatís about what it is. but it becomes terribly sweet and juicy - making me salivate and gleek - and the oily and syrupy sugar just sits permanently in the mouth. dang. have to say the nose had promise but the flavor and texture - goopy, syrupy, cloying - ruin it for me.

From bottle. Pours a golden color with decent head. Aroma was yeast, lemon and spice. Taste followed with a clean finish. Good Triple.

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up in a mixer sixer at some dumpy liquor store in Fort Collins. Pours a bit hazy, yellow orange appearance with a small white head. Spicy, wheat/cereal malty, vanilla, very spicy yeasty, light banana aroma. Juicy banana/lemon, prickly spicy yeasty, thick citrus peel, coriander, chewy bready, big sweet wheat malty flavor. Iím a bit torn on this but I donít think Iím a huge fan.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JAN 30, 2013
Lightly hazy golden with a white head. Yeasty, slightly sweet aroma. Flavor is yeasty, fruity, light lemon, a bit sweet. Medium body with nice carbonation. Decent brew. Nothing to write home about.

keepersj12 (2714) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Not in love but I like it. Pours a pale yellow with a white head. The aroma has a nice malt background with some spice and fruit. The flavor has the Belgian sweetness and the spice, well balanced and very refreshing. No way you would suspect the high ABV.

DocLock (7912) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle from Caponeís, Blue Dog, and Craft Ale. Pours turbid "1 hour after taking a Centrum multi-vitamin urine yellow" with 1-finger white head. Nose is a lovely and vibrant medley of coriandery spice, funky yeasty malt, hopcitrus, lime, orange zest. Tastes citric, limey and orange zesty, with mid-palate coriandery spice, white pepper, funky yeasty malt, and an overall flavor profile like a 33/33/33 mix of witbier, Belgian IPA, and saison, but with more oomph and flair. Well done.

nick76 (4232) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2013
The aroma is malty and sweet with candy sugar, spice, and fruit. The appearance is hazy gold with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a nice beer and almost a triple.

Arayaga2 (1796) - portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Hazy orange yellow with an inch of white head. Aroma is like a sour orange beer with wheat and spices, and a sulfur note. Taste is rather the same, with a sweetness not unlike that of a diet soda. $2.20/12oz

12 oz. bottle. Pours hazy light orange/golden color ith a medium sized white head. The aroma has lightly toasted malt, light yeasty notes, orange citrus, coriander, mild peppery notes and light herbal hops. The flavor has a big sweetness from the beginning; orange citrus, lightly toasted malts, a hint of rye, yeast, coriander and some bubble gum. This just seems really sweet for the style.

I was excited to try this beer, as I had a tripel on their pilot system recently that this beer was supposedly based on and quite liked it - now I donít know what to think - this doesnít seem quite the same - the spices in particular seem unnecessary and overdone, especially in the nose, and the beer is quite sweet - just not very to style - the nose has a lot of coriander and honey sweetness, as well as hints of the orange - some apparent alcohol - body is creamy - quite sweet up front - the spices come on strong in the middle - some peppery and lightly earthy phenols late - really not a tripel - at all - but if you get past that, itís actually a pretty good beer - whatever.
