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.

draft at tap room. Pours yellow with white head. Aroma is a bit spicy, clove. Medium bodied. Flavor has notes of wheat, belgian yeast, and spice, but lacks the fruitiness and complexity of a good tripel. I love great divide’s american beer styles but like the collete "saison", this tripel leaves a lot to be wanted.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a smallish white head. Nose is a little sweet and yeasty. Taste is also sweet and just a tad earthy. Meh.

Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured vibrant golden/yellow with a thick, fizzy white head. Mild retention, a quick swirl of the glass allowed the head to form again thickly. Nice dryness. Big graininess with lots of yeast esters. Creamy, full mouthfeel. Citrus and other light fruits with some hop bitterness.. Would be great on warm day. Despite the higher ABV it was quite thirst quenching.

Scipio (690) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Pours a very hazy and bright yellow with a more thin white head. Aroma has Belgian yeast, spices, orange, and hints of banana and lemon. It is quite pleasant. I think the taste is a notch below my initial impressions. It is heavy on orange, along with yeast and spices. I can taste a little bit of alcohol throughout drinking. Short spicy aftertaste. This one is sweet, perhaps a little to sweet actually. Medium in body, slick in texture, with the carbonation being more flat. This one isn’t really my style. But its alright.

Tap at Falling Rock. Pours hazy yellow with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is fragrant fruity esters, straw and pils malt with light spicy hops. Flavor is light malt with heavy fruity esters with light spices and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Tap. Pours cloudy, light gold with average, creamy white head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, cookie and bread malts, oranges, floral hops, and herbs. Flavor is sweet malts, grassy notes, herbs, light floral hops, and light fruit esters; dry, lightly sweet finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

cmonster (969) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle served in a tulip. Pours hazy light orange with a short white head. Minimal retention and spotty lacing. Bright orange peel, light yeast spiciness and a clean yet complex grainy malt aroma. Really nice. Medium sweet attack then the yeast and orange zest. Medium body, creamy-oily textutre, average carbonation, and a sticky wheat, light oily finish.
