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.

Apricot and coriander nose. Cloudy golden, thin head. Full body. Lemon and coriander flavor. Fruity esters fade revealing a nice light maltiness. Alcohol well concealed. Dangerously good.

(bottle) Pours a hazy light yellow/gold color with a scant white head that leaves a ring around the glass. Aroma of honey butter spread on toast, orange marmalade, peeks of coriander, light bubblegum, and even more bread. Little bit of hoppiness too and perhaps a flash of vanilla but that might be a reach. Pretty breakfasty though. The toast spread aspect is really a nice feature. Taste has more prominent bubblegum right up front and thankfully that honey butter on toast feature has carried over into the flavor dept. Some orange peel and coriander shine through on the finish before being replaced by a tandem of drying hops and bready yeast. The orange really begins to emerge as this warms both in aroma and flavor. The abv is expertly masked here, and this drinks more like a 5-6% beer, although the heft of it on the palate is a slight tell. Overall, I don’t normally care much for these Blue-Moonesque type concoctions, but when they’re done this well, I’ll gladly make an exception.

Bottle at home. Pour is slightly hazy golden in appearance with a bright white head and great lacing. Big clove and coriander, biscuit, grass, light banana, white pepper, banana, and basil in the aroma. Taste is big spice and clove upfront, with notes of fruity esters, banana, and bread through the middle, ending grassy/spicy with big hits of white pepper. Thick mouthfeel with high carbonation. Damn tasty Tripel.

DrSilverworm (7657) - 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!
