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.

I continue to really enjoy Great Divide’s foray into Belgian styles. Orabelle is a spicy number with black pepper, leaves, and coriander against a bright citrus aroma. Flavors are robust and earthy -- not juicy. Dry finish, plenty of malt backing from the rye, and stand-alone notes of orange zest, centennial (?) hops and cut grass.

Cloudy yellow, light tan head. Banana, apricot, very fruity. Some bitterness upfront, opens into a nice diversity of malt flavors. Lighter body than the average alcohol isn't terribly present. Very drinkable. Really well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice American version of the best style! The Belgian tripple flavors are a little light but have a nice orange citrus accent.

Floral, citrus fruity, bready, and honeyed aromas. Hazy yellow-orange, mostly fading white head. Dry, fragrant, floral hops and bitter citrus, savory. Medium bodied, well carbonated, pretty refreshing, a slight bit dusty.

Dogbrick (7581) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Sample at Daily Growler. Hazy amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of bananas, caramel malt and yeast. The finish is sweet with a fruity yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.

Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured vibrant golden/yellow with a thick, fizzy white head. Mild retention, a quick swirl of the glass allowed the head to form again thickly. Nice dryness. Big graininess with lots of yeast esters. Creamy, full mouthfeel. Citrus and other light fruits with some hop bitterness.. Would be great on warm day. Despite the higher ABV it was quite thirst quenching.

Aurelius (4028) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Market Square Liquors, Timberlane. Elegant label, standard longneck, foggy gold beer, thin white head. Fresh,yeasty, lightly sweet,lightly fruity aroma. Tangy, biscuity, puff pastry flavor, a little mineral, modestly bitter. Undertones suggest that seafood would be a good pairing. Medium body, effervescent. Light citrus peel bitterness in the finish. Enjoyable.
