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.

maekchu (1973) - 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.

dfinney23 (1582) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2013
Pours hazy gold with not much head. Sweet with yeast and coriander, though doesn’t strike me as overly "Belgian tripel". Still, very good.

drdisque (510) - Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2013
On tap at Bangers & Lace. A bit spicy and bready for a tripel. Bright flavor. A little bit acidic and carbonated on the finish. Not bad but not really a standout in this genre, even by American standards.

Ibrew2or3 (6779) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 23, 2013
12oz bottle pours with a clear watery gold body that supports a bright white head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, biscuit malts, spicy Belgian yeast and a touch of lime. The taste begins with Belgian spicy yeast flowing into sweet sugary malts as well as pears, honey covered apple wedges and figs. Pretty nice.

Finhead (1151) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Hazy, yellow pour with a bright white head. The aroma has orange rind and some light, peppery spice. It has a light body with sticky texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet with just a hint of alcohol.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a light, slightly hazy lemon gold color with a thin white filmy head. Smells of coriander, lemon zest, grassy malts, and semi-sweet citrus. Flavor of light grassy malts, hints of wheat, and tart and sweet citrus fruitiness. A very mild hop bite comes through in the aftertaste. Body is on the full side with light fizzy carbonation.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color with a thin frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of dry citrus, nuts, oats, pale malts and a bit of pith. The taste is sweet malts, spice, caramel, honey, building citrus in the finish. Medium bodied, low carbonation, good balance. Solid beer.
