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.

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

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--

Pours a very miry golden color with a thin white head. Almost a creamy taste for a triple. Very refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy yellow with thin dissipating white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, and spices. Taste is citrus with a complex of spices that are hard to pin down and floral notes. Light bodied. It’s interesting but not a particularly enjoyable flavor. Kinda reminds me of drinking orange juice after brushing your teeth.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Westvleteen XII glass From: Bine & Vine Bottle Shop in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $2.19 Purchased: Feb. 22, 2014 Consumed: Feb. 22, 2014 Misc.: Born on date of Jan. 15, 2013 Poured a golden straw hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of white head. Minimal lacing. Average retention. Had to work for the smell, but then got orange peel, cloves, light banana, honey, Belgian spices and caramel. Tasted a little less Belgian than the smell and a bit more citrusy fruits. Got orange peel, coriander, citrus hops, wheat, orange, honey, cloves and some Belgian spices. Light body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Longer finish. Certainly did not taste the 8.3 percent. Overall this was a very nice Belgian beer.

Pours a hazy straw color with a quickly dissolving head. Aroma malty and spicy. Taste is light for a tripel but very much Belgian. Pilsener malts and coriander dominate flavor profile with light malt and spicy lemon notes.

12oz bottle shared. Poured a light hazy yellow color with minimal white head. Nice Belgian yeast aroma with mild funk and some Brett. The flavor is very nice some sweet malt with the Belgian esters. Mild funkiness in the flavor. Overall not bad for an American Belgian. I would drink this one again.

On tap. Poured yellow with medium head. Aroma grassy and floral. Chewy rose, sweet but complex enough to score big.
