Hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma is a little bread with sharp rye. Flavor is a little floral, almost like elderflower liqueur with a bit of sharp rye in the finish. Interesting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into stemmed tulip glass. Moderate pour produced a slight quickly-dissipating half-finger head. Color is orange to golden and. Opaque. Nose is fruity with some yeast and wheat. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy and moderate body. Taste is citrus, wheat, yeast, hay, and a little bit of a rye bite. A good, but not incredible beer. I’d happily drink this with dinner.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy yellow straw with small-medium off white head that leaves some lacing.
Aroma is lemon and grass, light coriander. Taste shifts to orange and cereals with floral and herbal notes. The first impression is that this isn’t much of a Belgian impersonation, but it opens up nicely with aeration.
Orabelle benefits from a satisfying mouthfeel, depth without too much heaviness. Overall, not bad for an American attempt at a tripel.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very enjoyable. Pours a bright golden straw colour with a thin off white head. The aroma is zesty and floral with citrus and grassy hops, floral and fruity esters and light coriander and clove style spice notes. Crisp and clean with a full body and heayv toasted wheat malt. Full flavour with a heavy mouthfeel and coriander spice throughout.

Got this brew on tap, poured in a tulip glass at Brix in Greeley, CO.
Yellow-gold in color. Very cloudy, hazy, not at all transparent. Good carbonation with lively bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass and nice lacing.
Very pleasant aroma, fruity, sweet, hints of floral and spices.
Lively, crisp mouthfeel. Sweet, complex flavor with a yummy Belgian funk.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this beer & would definitely have it again!

Bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy bright gold, with a moderate dense white head that fades quickly. Nose is orange peel and coriander. taste is of orange peel and coriander, with some sweetness. Not really a tripel if you ask me, but a good Belgian style warm weather ale. I’ll buy it again.
