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. Donít let ORABELLEís nature fool you, this is one flavorful brew. Watch out, sheís a charmer- one sip and youíll be in love.

Ibrew2or3 (6760) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 23, 2013
12oz bottle pours with a clear watery gold body that supports a bright white head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, biscuit malts, spicy Belgian yeast and a touch of lime. The taste begins with Belgian spicy yeast flowing into sweet sugary malts as well as pears, honey covered apple wedges and figs. Pretty nice.

drdisque (504) - Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2013
On tap at Bangers & Lace. A bit spicy and bready for a tripel. Bright flavor. A little bit acidic and carbonated on the finish. Not bad but not really a standout in this genre, even by American standards.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle:   Pale golden, slight haze, thin to moderate sudsy white head, little lacing.   Soft caraway, orange peel, and corriander on the nose.   Almost a candyish sweetness up front, strong pale maltiness, some honey, minor corriander spices, with some sage perhaps?   Not as mealy or heavy as many other American examples, but sure has a strong sweet malty breadiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Spicy finish, strong honeydew melon, bready, malty, warming.   Not as floral as others, or spritzy, but at least its a little different.   Pale American Abbey Tripel with some Witbier aspects mixed in.   Decent.

Wonderful variety of flavors with a great golden appearance. Complex citrus twang that just dances across the palate.

bkurtz (726) - PERU - JUL 26, 2013
Poured a hazy yellow with big, bubbly head. Nice citrus and malt aroma. The taste is somewhat sweet and complex. You donít taste the 8.3 alcohol content. I enjoy Triples and this has some good qualities, but Iíll drink a Westmalle anyday over this.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 26, 2013
12oz bottle served in a Tripel Karmeliet A - Pours a glowing amber orange with zero head. Light specks of lacing when swirled. S - Orange, pineapple, bready and sweet malts, musty hay, kind of a flat aroma, maybe due to the low carbonation. T - Fruity off the top, orange, pear, banana, apples, spice, boozy fruit, musty grains, sweet pale malts, honey, coriander, M - Low carbonation, almost flat, surprisingly soft feel though. Medium to full bodied. Not as good as I wanted it to be. Ok flavors but every thing seemed dull. The very low carbonation didnít help either. Hades was the last Belgian style that this brewery did well. Serving type: bottle 02-01-2013

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle from Total wine Naples. Pours pineapple yellow and cloudy. Slight orange notes on the nose. Bigger orange on the tongue with a bit of esters on he finish. This one feels more like a Belgian wit than a abbey triple but its still tasty.

glennmastrange (2205) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle. Light to moderate grain for the malt, moderate flowers for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with white wine, honey and fresh apricot. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy light amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a soft carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. Great fruity aromas, good balance make this a nice drinking Abbey Tripel.

Respectable tripel - wheaty taste that almost pushes into the German style category.
