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.

Cloudy orangish pour, white head. Tripel or imperial blue moon? I really felt as if I was drinking a jacked up blue moon. It looked a lot the same and tasted a lot the same. Dont get me wrong, it was better than a blue moon, but not by tons.

adnielsen (10089) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up in a mixer sixer at some dumpy liquor store in Fort Collins. Pours a bit hazy, yellow orange appearance with a small white head. Spicy, wheat/cereal malty, vanilla, very spicy yeasty, light banana aroma. Juicy banana/lemon, prickly spicy yeasty, thick citrus peel, coriander, chewy bready, big sweet wheat malty flavor. I’m a bit torn on this but I don’t think I’m a huge fan.

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Sample at Daily Growler. Hazy amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of bananas, caramel malt and yeast. The finish is sweet with a fruity yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.

355mL stolen from a party. Full haze deep peach, weak white foam. Nose is phenols, plastic, diaper, sugary. Taste is butyric, papery, phenolic. Palate is spicy, chalky. Lots of sweet yellow apple.

arminjewell (8622) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange juice, tart lemon, biscuit, bread, slight coriander, clove notes, hints of yeast and spicy notes, slight pear and peach as well. Taste is a mix of sweet orange, lemon, and biscuit, nice spice with yeast, coriander, slight grassy notes in there as well, hints of pear, peach, and grape, finishing fairly sweet.

3fourths (8600) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2013
bottle. heavily hazed golden wheat body, small white head, yeast does not come out of suspension. might guess about some sour mash wheat and malt here, there’s a lot of minerals / salted lemon / dish soap / tart citrus acid in the nose, but there’s also some coriander / ginger / peppercorn notes that are affecting it. syrupy, sweet, Belgian-style golden ale, that’s about what it is. but it becomes terribly sweet and juicy - making me salivate and gleek - and the oily and syrupy sugar just sits permanently in the mouth. dang. have to say the nose had promise but the flavor and texture - goopy, syrupy, cloying - ruin it for me.

DrSilverworm (8547) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2013
12oz bottle, bottled 1/2/13. Hazy dandelion yellow color. Thin white head, decent lace. Orange citrus and floral nose. Awesome big zesty orange peel flavor (bigger than I’m used to from the tripel style), floral notes, light spice with a very enjoyable yeast character - not too belgian, not too little belgian. Just belgian enough. Very smooth, light crisp carbonation, lightly creamy texture, but a good, more dry finish. Zesty sweet taste, little bitterness, bit of umami. This is a fantastic tripel. Unique, tasty, easy to drink.. and $11 for a 6-pack!

DocLock (8530) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s, Blue Dog, and Craft Ale. Pours turbid "1 hour after taking a Centrum multi-vitamin urine yellow" with 1-finger white head. Nose is a lovely and vibrant medley of coriandery spice, funky yeasty malt, hopcitrus, lime, orange zest. Tastes citric, limey and orange zesty, with mid-palate coriandery spice, white pepper, funky yeasty malt, and an overall flavor profile like a 33/33/33 mix of witbier, Belgian IPA, and saison, but with more oomph and flair. Well done.

deyholla (8120) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2014
On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a hazy bright yellow with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has light citrus, sweet grains, belgian yeast and a good amount of sweet grains. Flavor starts with sweet grains and light sweet citrus with some backing belgian yeast and light fruits.
