3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
