Scipio (750) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2013
3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very hazy and bright yellow with a more thin white head. Aroma has Belgian yeast, spices, orange, and hints of banana and lemon. It is quite pleasant. I think the taste is a notch below my initial impressions. It is heavy on orange, along with yeast and spices. I can taste a little bit of alcohol throughout drinking. Short spicy aftertaste. This one is sweet, perhaps a little to sweet actually. Medium in body, slick in texture, with the carbonation being more flat. This one isn’t really my style. But its alright.

Bananas and coriander come from this hazy pale blind brew. I get sweet with maybe the coriander then comes the Orange flavor and the bitterness of the peel. It's medium bodied and low carb.

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.

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.

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!
