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.

Beaver (1342) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2013
12 oz bottle, bottled on 12/31/12. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a medium creamy white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet and tart fruit with corriander and a bit of funk.

The flavor is bready malts with some fruit and corriander and a bit of a funky bitter finish. The mouthfeel is pretty full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a solid beer. Kind of a cross between a tripel and a wit. Easy drinking but with a bang.

Draft at Chalkboard Cafe. Yellowish color with generous head. Aroma is coriander, Belgium yeast, and some orange peel. Medium light sweetness. Smooth tasting with a slight pepper spice finish. Medium body. Nice. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GTAEgeek (1286) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy gold color, with a thin, off-white head. Mandarin oranges up front, cane sugar, cloves, cinnamon, and black pepper. Sticky sweetness, with a slightly sour undertone, with some musty notes. Medium body, with a hard feel and a little sticky and acidic feel. Overall, this is a sweet and tasty beer, but lacks complexity and depth.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - APR 14, 2013
Aroma bready and kind of a nutty fruit stone. Spicy hops. A lot of vegetal in there. Not sweet at all. Dry and bitter. Belgie and a little odd but it could grow on you.

Finhead (1219) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Hazy, yellow pour with a bright white head. The aroma has orange rind and some light, peppery spice. It has a light body with sticky texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet with just a hint of alcohol.

Onslow (1210) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2013
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Hazy golden brew with dens white head, bits of crude floating around in it. Aroma of green banana, corriander, a llittle spice. Taste is sweet malt at the start, fruity esters, green bananas, very sweet from start to finish. Satisfying palate but sticky sweet at the end. A little spice in the finish and later in the swallow....

Guerde (1184) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2014
(bottle) Pours a hazy light yellow/gold color with a scant white head that leaves a ring around the glass. Aroma of honey butter spread on toast, orange marmalade, peeks of coriander, light bubblegum, and even more bread. Little bit of hoppiness too and perhaps a flash of vanilla but that might be a reach. Pretty breakfasty though. The toast spread aspect is really a nice feature. Taste has more prominent bubblegum right up front and thankfully that honey butter on toast feature has carried over into the flavor dept. Some orange peel and coriander shine through on the finish before being replaced by a tandem of drying hops and bready yeast. The orange really begins to emerge as this warms both in aroma and flavor. The abv is expertly masked here, and this drinks more like a 5-6% beer, although the heft of it on the palate is a slight tell. Overall, I don’t normally care much for these Blue-Moonesque type concoctions, but when they’re done this well, I’ll gladly make an exception.

EtTuCthulhu (1138) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JAN 29, 2014
The color is a cloudy yellow color with a large white head, and the aroma is sweet in the nose due to the Belgian yeast and a sweet fruitiness. The taste fuses a slight sourness and a mild sweetness that is enticing, and the palate has an interesting blend of a thick texture, subtle yet long finish, average carbonation, and a medium body, which ties everything together nicely.

jhamp9 (1135) - Corinth, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Hazy straw pour with a decent white head. Very strong yeasty banana, orange, coriander aroma. Taste is banana and spice up front with orange coming through in the finish. Medium body. Like a wit on steroids.

Emeister84 (1129) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2014
Floral, citrus fruity, bready, and honeyed aromas. Hazy yellow-orange, mostly fading white head. Dry, fragrant, floral hops and bitter citrus, savory. Medium bodied, well carbonated, pretty refreshing, a slight bit dusty.
