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.

Not in love but I like it. Pours a pale yellow with a white head. The aroma has a nice malt background with some spice and fruit. The flavor has the Belgian sweetness and the spice, well balanced and very refreshing. No way you would suspect the high ABV.

12 ounce bottle. Hazy honey gold color topped by a brief white head. Faint yeasty citrus malt nose with hints of smoke and coriander. Complex bittersweet wheat malt flavor with earthy, yeasty notes. Mid taste is a mix of lemon peel and bitter hops with a touch of white peppercorns and cardamom. Finish is bitter and dryish with peppery notes.

mansquito (3759) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Total Wine, Fairfax 12oz: Pours a golden body with a white head. Aroma is banana, coriander, sugar, and pale malts. Taste is somewhat sweet, with a slight hoppy tinge. All in all, this is a pretty run of the mill tripel. Good, and smooth, but kind of boring. Nice fizzy carbonation if that floats your boat. Alcohol coverage is perfect.

after4ever (6398) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy medium gold with a fizzy white head that lasts until you take a sip and break it. Bright nose with pleasantly sweet green apple esters. Creamy medium body with fizzy carb. Green apples and a bit of sweet cream on the mid palate. Pleasant and drinkable if a bit more forward and less layered than classic belgian examples.

maekchu (2458) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits in Athens. Estery, light peach, sour pineapple aromas. Hazy light straw color, littl head. Nice fruit initial, with some orange peel / mid goes a bit too sugary, some cereal, some coriander / smooth cookeish, floury final, with residual bitterness. Medium body. A deeply flavored blonde tripel.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is citrus and orange peel. Medium mouthfeel with sweet orange and light crisp finish. Easy to drink, refreshing a good tripelfrom Great Divide.
