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.

Pours hazy straw yellow with a white head. The aroma has sweet maltiness, candy sugar, cloves, coriander, light banana and that tripel style yeast. Really comes off nicely for a six pack beer. Medium / full body with carbonation that’s a bit more assertive than most tripels. The taste starts with more dryness and spice than the aroma, hints of stone fruit, velvety smooth lush malt that comes with some tripels, coriander, pepper and some earthy / spicy hops. The finish sweetens up a bit and adds some earthy hops. Far better than I expected for a tripel in a six pack.

ChainGangGuy (4486) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2014
12 ounce bottle - $2.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Bottled On: JAN 07 2014.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, light golden body with a smallish, short-lived, white head.

Smell: Juicy citrus fruits, a bit of milked banana, and a generous dosage of coriander (also a little white peppercorn).

Taste: Crackery malts, a snap of sweetness, then, blitzed with a fast-moving fruitiness of tropical citruses of orange and lime, light pineapple, and banana. The added coriander is notable. Some alcohol warmth present. Sweet, spicy, fruity to the well-carbonated finish with a lingering orange zest flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-high carbonation.

Overall: Orabelle wasn’t horrible, it does have that going for it. It doesn’t feel like much of a tripel. Reading the label is seemed more like an amped up wit.

Poured from cellar into tulip glass (54F). Pours a hazy light gold color with white head. Aromas of citrus, wheat, and a touch of rye. Tastes follow the aromas, very effervescent carbonation, light and crisp, refreshing, and nice.

Drought. Hazy rich yellow with white creamy head, honey aroma, low carbonation, slightly sweet taste with honey flavor, longish finish with a bit of bitterness at the end. Nicely concealed alcohol content, enjoyable brew.

commonshawn (535) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold with short lasting white head. Smells like a wheat beer. Citrus fruit taste maybe a tiny bit of banana. Not too much hop taste. Alcohol is there but covered up. Finish is also citrus. Not what I expected but I liked it .

commonmac (537) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle purchased from Haskells for March Madness consumption. Light golden in color with minimal amount of head. Mild aroma. Tropical fruit and a complement of spice. Some malty characterstics. Tripel is a style with a high bar and this one does a decent job of approximating the better options in the category. Good job, Great Divide.

atlrizzob (185) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Pour is a hazy golden color, somewhat like that of a pilsner, with a light white head. Aroma is hops and Belgian yeast. Taste is orange peel, coriander, banana, and yeast. Fairly decent from someone trying to adapt to the Belgian variety

Braudog (5965) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle. Super light in color, golden and slightly hazy. The aroma is laden with spring herbs and esthery yeasts. This drinks with a really light and fruity consistency, tropical fruit with a dash of coriander. (#5469, 3/18/2014)
