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.

Great all-around beer here. Even had to share a couple of bottles with my wife. Pours a nice golden color with straw notes and a light head. Straw, orange, spice, yeast flavors throughout. Medium to long finish with a bit of bubble. Highly enjoyable.

Drought. Hazy rich yellow with white creamy head, honey aroma, low carbonation, slightly sweet taste with honey flavor, longish finish with a bit of bitterness at the end. Nicely concealed alcohol content, enjoyable brew.

A little hoppy for a tripel, which I think worked. Aromas and flavors of wheat, spice and a bit sweet. Golden color with no head. Medium weight but pretty smooth and full.

changeup45 (1727) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottled Jan. 2, 2013. This pours a bright golden-orange color that can just barely muster a pencil thin head on top. Yeasty aroma with a strong wet basement smell; some straw, clove, and citrus. It’s sweet initially before some spice kicks in, leading to a semi-dry finish. The flavors are citrusy and floral with some orange blossom sticky notes and a touch of herbal character. There does seem to be too much sugar here but at least the body isn’t super thick and syrupy allowing it to still be somewhat refreshing. It would probably be better if it were a tick or two lower in alcohol but this was a pretty solid brew.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Draft at Proof. Deep hazy gold pour with a bubbly white head. Very fruity bubblegum aroma, light tangerines, hint of sourness, Belgian candy sugar and some sweet pale grains. Flavor similar but falls flat, weak carbonation and medium bodied. Was expecting a decent beer considering the nose, lacks the zesty richness.

GTAEgeek (1656) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, 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.

keanex (1655) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Bottled December 13, 2012.
Appearance: The body is murky pale straw through the edges and orange through the center. The head is thin, but dense, it reminds me of fluffernutter.
Aroma: The aroma is a well balanced medley of oranges, banana, and spice of rye and cloves with light vanilla, a slight hint of alcohol is noted upon swirling.
Taste: The intro is orange packed, with an orange juice vibe to it slightly outshining the malts. The mid-taste adds light banana, spicy rye and pepper notes with a touch of vanilla as orange juice cuts through, but is somewhat balanced while the finish adds mild cloves and lingers of orange juice.
Palate: Medium to thick bodied, full texture, soft carbonation.
Overall: This would be a better beer if they used less orange peel. I feel like they blended orange juice with this, it throws the balance off.

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.
