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.

Can pour from Wally’s. Aroma is Belgian fruity esters, banana, bubblegum, with some tart. Appearance is cloudy yellow with nice sparkle, finger-width foamy white head with poor retention and nice, leggy lacing. Taste is as aroma with moderately sweet fruity esters with late tart but also with overarching light orange and spice. Don’t taste the alcohol. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture and average to lively carbonation and lasting sweet/tart finish. Overall, a nice beer with some nice subtle complexity. Not getting the hop contributions typical for the style, but not really missing them either.

For me Tripel and pizza is one of those can’t-miss combos, which is why I find myself returning to it so often. Last night’s pairing was a delicious slice of spicy, bready, and citrusy plus a glass of spicy, bready, and citrusy courtesy of Yia Yia’s. Orabelle has a golden pour. Its yeast esters have fruity, spicy aromas. Bread and mildly tart citrus flavors. The spice note is fairly complex with a big nod toward coriander and subtler touches of clove and ginger. Feel is bright, smooth, and semi-dry at the finish. Overall, a lovely Tripel and an excellent addition to a meal.

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 (3737) - 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.

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.
