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.

Apricot and coriander nose. Cloudy golden, thin head. Full body. Lemon and coriander flavor. Fruity esters fade revealing a nice light maltiness. Alcohol well concealed. Dangerously good.

Drake (8550) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color with a thin frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of dry citrus, nuts, oats, pale malts and a bit of pith. The taste is sweet malts, spice, caramel, honey, building citrus in the finish. Medium bodied, low carbonation, good balance. Solid beer.

Bottle to glass. Pours a very hazy, opaque golden orange. Aroma is slightly tart, yeasty, spicy and full of bread. Taste is bold and yeasty / bready. Light citrus and spice notes. Smooth and not especially sweet or bitter on the palate. Pretty good.

Trev (1935) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Hazy straw pour with a thin head. Aroma is orange peel,lemon, coriander, sage, some pilsner-like maltiness. Flavour is pow, big coriander spice, lemon and orange zest, biscuity malt. A little too aggressively spiced for my liking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

snoworsummer (2144) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Pours cloudy, creamy yellow with a thin, fizzy white head and some lacing. Tastes like lavender, coriander, lemon, and orange peel, and creaminess. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like coriander, lemon peel, and wheat.

Pierresauce (19) - - JAN 12, 2014
Poured from the bottle in a pint glass. This is just what you hope for out of a tripel. Aroma is sweet citrus and the appearance is that of an unfiltered wheat beer; light color and very opaque. Slightly boozy finish, but considering its 8.3% alcohol content it?s actually pretty faint. Great beer.

Spectacular beer. Better than most Tripels in my opinion. The nose is wheaty with slight hints of citrus. The front taste is wheat filled with a hint of sugar. The finish has a strong presence of the sugar used to brew this style.

HogTownHarry (6101) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2013
12oz bottle. Fairly clear gold with an average fizzy-foamy white somewhat diminishing head, nice tiny bubbling action. Tangy aroma - alcohol, fresh-cut grass, low-level spice, citrus oil and yes, coriander - a little simple and grassier than I would expect, but a nice bonus is that it’s not massively sweet-smelling. Taste follows - basically it’s a light Belgian IPA, quite grassy and fairly well balanced if a tad strong alcohol presence. Average slightly oily mouthfell, sharply but not overly carbonated, a dry grassy finish where the coriander really emerges. I quite liked it - I dunno about style, but I liked it.

MrBeerFanatic (864) - Friona, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Pours a light golden with a very light haze and boozy head. Aromas sugary caramel, slight banana ester, grass and wheat-like/bread. Flavors sugary sweet caramel, grass, slight herbal hops, slight banana (from yeast). Medium to high sweetness, medium dry finish, light bitterness and a slight spicy aftertaste.
