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.

12 oz bottle. Pours bright hazy orange. Nose is citrus, orange, slight skunk. Taste is a bit sweet, very orangey, a bit tangy and yeasty. Syrupy viscous body. Not the best I’ve had and glad it’s only 12 oz.

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.

Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottled January 2...which means this meaty orange-lemon grass funk is all original. Based on the aroma alone, saison is probably the proper style. Taste is more like a wheat beer: sweet, tangy and spicy. You would never guess the relative strength of this beer. Very smooth, easy drinker. In another successful excursion into Belgium via Denver.

I continue to really enjoy Great Divide’s foray into Belgian styles. Orabelle is a spicy number with black pepper, leaves, and coriander against a bright citrus aroma. Flavors are robust and earthy -- not juicy. Dry finish, plenty of malt backing from the rye, and stand-alone notes of orange zest, centennial (?) hops and cut grass.

GTAEgeek (1471) - 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.

Beaver (1457) - 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.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy bright hay. Aroma is slightly fruit, a little funky and a lot of sweet. Taste is a pleasant balance of sweet, tart, light cereal, a bit of citrus....dangerously drinkable. More like a hefeweizen than a big belgian.

Lowe1983 (1389) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is of banana, yeast, coriander, and some lemon. Flavor is similar with the treaty, banana, and coriander. Overall not too bad.
