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.

Bottle at home. Pour is slightly hazy golden in appearance with a bright white head and great lacing. Big clove and coriander, biscuit, grass, light banana, white pepper, banana, and basil in the aroma. Taste is big spice and clove upfront, with notes of fruity esters, banana, and bread through the middle, ending grassy/spicy with big hits of white pepper. Thick mouthfeel with high carbonation. Damn tasty Tripel.

PorterPounder (5696) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Cloudy, but brightly colored golden pour with a sticky snow white head. Aroma has hints of clove, some lemony accents. Bold, brisk flavor with some lemony accents, a yeasty back end. some sweet buttery smoothness. Sticky, chewy mouthfeel. Nice job on this one.

Aurelius (4359) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Market Square Liquors, Timberlane. Elegant label, standard longneck, foggy gold beer, thin white head. Fresh,yeasty, lightly sweet,lightly fruity aroma. Tangy, biscuity, puff pastry flavor, a little mineral, modestly bitter. Undertones suggest that seafood would be a good pairing. Medium body, effervescent. Light citrus peel bitterness in the finish. Enjoyable.

Poured a cloudy honey color with a thick two-finger white head. Aroma is dough, earthy, banana, bubblegum, caramel, and candy. Taste is banana, raisin, bubblegum, lemon, tea, and an odd metallic bittersweet finish.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle shared with my old buddy Danel Knight. Glad he’s into good beer. This one was just so-so. Had no idea it was a tripel as I didnt see any indication of style other than "Belgian-style" written on the bottle. Maybe I missed it. Anyway, it wasnt super distinctive. Coriander, orange peel, esters, but boring and passable.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2013
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.

maxwelldeux (3791) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2013
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.

boFNjackson (4171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2013
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 (719) - 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.
