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.

Ericular (613) - Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2013
Pours a hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma is full with fruity esters, malts, and some spicy yeast. Taste carries the fruit through with some banana and coriander, then into the peppery and floral yeast. Palate is smooth and full-bodied. Tasty.

Beaver (1297) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2013
12 oz bottle, bottled on 12/31/12. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a medium creamy white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet and tart fruit with corriander and a bit of funk.

The flavor is bready malts with some fruit and corriander and a bit of a funky bitter finish. The mouthfeel is pretty full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a solid beer. Kind of a cross between a tripel and a wit. Easy drinking but with a bang.

freeofthoughts (653) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Pours a rich medium yellow with quickly dissipating white fizz. The aroma is bold bright orange and lemon citrus with hearty pale grains and a Belgian flair. The flavor is similar with a solid dose of coriander coming in and a westmalle tripel flavor, some bubblegum and banana in with the Belgian musty fruitiness. Nice brew, soft but very rich with a moderate carbonation that bolsters the sweet grains. Good beer, especially for a 6 pack.

commonmac (331) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle purchased from Haskells for March Madness consumption. Light golden in color with minimal amount of head. Mild aroma. Tropical fruit and a complement of spice. Some malty characterstics. Tripel is a style with a high bar and this one does a decent job of approximating the better options in the category. Good job, Great Divide.

slowrunner77 (2131) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2014
"A little overdone on the coriander in the aroma, but otherwise quite pleasant. Like a bubble gummy full bodied and highly alcoholic wit. The orange peel is quite ever preset as well, but not overdone. A nice spicy, very fruity aromatic brew."

cmonster (974) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle served in a tulip. Pours hazy light orange with a short white head. Minimal retention and spotty lacing. Bright orange peel, light yeast spiciness and a clean yet complex grainy malt aroma. Really nice. Medium sweet attack then the yeast and orange zest. Medium body, creamy-oily textutre, average carbonation, and a sticky wheat, light oily finish.
