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.

cmonster (979) - 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.

Aroma of nice floral, citrus, and noticable yeast. Pours orange hazy with very small head. Taste is nice at first. Nice floral, capers, and apricot. Finishes a bit dry and bland.

ajnepple (2280) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2013
12 oz bottled 5 weeks ago. Pours golden-orange and hazy with a white fluffy head that sticks on the glass. The aroma is yeasty, oranges, spices, herbs, fruit. Light to medium body with a grainy texture and soft carbonation. Zesty fruit flavor balanced well by the two yeast strains and wheat. Very smooth and drinkable with dry finish. A fruity tripel with great balance and flavor.

Poured from a bottle into a won’t glass. Pours a translucent gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is esters, fruit, some light grain. Taste has a velvety sweetness and smooth fruity finish. Pretty good tripel overall.

12 oz bottle shared by csbosox. Bottled Jan 16 printed on label. The pour is hazy a yellow, with a small white head. The aroma is straw, along with sweet maltiness and a clove yeastiness. The taste is the traditional Tripel flavors, natural malt sweetness, hay straw, and a strong clove yeast presence. I noticed a hint of fruit stripe gum as it warmed. Nicely made beer, thanks for sharing Chris.

12 oz bottle pours a pale golden/straw color with fair white head but not much lacing. Aroma is everything I expected from a classic Belgian White: Orange peel, coriander, wheat, earthy yeast. (nevermind that RB calls it a Tripel). Taste is slightly bitter. Body is medium. Alcohol is very well hidden - I thought it was more like 5.5%. This one is very drinkable and refreshing and one I will definitely try again.
