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.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Slightly hazy with a yellow-orange hue. Bright, inviting nose with fresh yeast aromas. Snappy and clean texture. Spicy (pepper, clove, coriander) and citrusy (lemon, orange) and sweet (honey, sugar). Big alcohol is hidden really well. Great beer.

conway (1128) - - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy gold with almost no head. Aroma is lemon, coriander, orange and yeast. Taste follows suit but with a prominent tangerine note. Slight boozy sting. Medium juicy mouthfeel and strong carb. I had low expectations for this but it's actually pretty awesome.

UncleKorm (644) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle poured a milky golden hue w/ a small white head diminishing to a lasting ring. Huge fruity aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a sharp bitterness of short duration. Tastes are lemon, apricot, aged cheese, banana, white pepper, coriander, light Belgian sugar and yeast. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, and lively carbonation.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Draft at Estilo. Pours a hazy gold, nice head. Aroma is honey malts, Belgian spiciness, hint of bubblegum. Flavor is quite complex, with honey malts intermingling with yeast driven phenols, a hint of coriander, and a hint of orange that moves into an almost marmalade liked finish. Really good, sort of a tripel meeting a wit. Spouse liked it.

Underdogs88 (57) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Citrus notes dominate in the aroma with some clove in the background. No hop aroma detected. Cloudy yellow appearance with a small white head and pour head retention. Flavor and aroma is citrus forward with a small amount of pepper notes. No hop flavor is detected in the taste and hop bitterness is low. Mouthfeel is medium low with a sweetness on the end. Carbonation is medium low. Overall, it's a poorly executed Belgian tripel. The citrus flavors overpower the pepper, the beer ends too sweet. Not enough hop bitterness. I will not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (2986) - Georgia, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Comes out of the tap a hazy,barely translucent golden with a nice buff head. Aroma is rich and fruity, with butterscotch and malty hints. Flavor delights with banana, pear, butterscotch and sweet malt notes, plus a whisper of hops. Velvety and firm texture has some good tingle. Tripel your pleasure, tripel your fun--
