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.

DocLock (8500) - 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.

Draft at Butcher & the Boar. Nothing spectacular in the nose. Some citrus. Murky dark yellow. Snow White head. Sheet lace. Sweet with distinct Belgian qualities. Strong. Orange peel finish. Excellent.

Kinz (3507) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Draft at Estilo. Pours a hazy gold, nice head. Aroma is honey malts, Belgian spiciness, hint of bubblegum. Flavor is quite complex, with honey malts intermingling with yeast driven phenols, a hint of coriander, and a hint of orange that moves into an almost marmalade liked finish. Really good, sort of a tripel meeting a wit. Spouse liked it.

Vinylholic (22) - Uniontown, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Strong floral aroma with grassy/yeasty notes. Pours a medium/light yellow with a medium head. Sweet floral taste combined with citrus. Lively carbonation and a sweeter finish. An excellent warm-weather choice.

Hazy gold with a thin foamy white head. Estery nose with pale grains and peppercorn with a bready yeasty sweetness. Taste is also not as dry as I had hoped, but it has that quintessential Great Divide balance. Flavor is peppery and yeasty with a pale grain background, kinda slightly fruity. Lots of coriander too.

RSRIZZO (1898) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a Tulip at 40°. Color is a hazy golden yellow with mellow carbonation and a soft white head. Aroma is coriander, orange and Belgian yeast. It has a medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor has a nice sour note as the citrus and spice meld with the yeast giving it an almost White taste. In the after taste the coriander and spice hang on with a mild bitterness. Overall this is a great brew, I think it leans more to the characteristics of a White and the 8.3% abv is very nice.
