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.

1/31/2014: Great Divide Orabelle... Trademark Beligan Tripel spiked with too much coriander; far too sweet for my preference; strong, but the alcohol isn’t completely obvious. Draught sample at Whole Foods in Mason, Ohio. Rating #175 for this beer.

355ml can from Brewdog online. Hazy golden colour with a one-two finger smooth creamy head. Aroma is spicy and yeasty, coriander, bready, orange peel. Taste of fruit, yeast, coriander, spices, malt. Good carbonation. Medium body. Smooth. Really nice actually.

jamestulloch (3210) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Can from Cornelius. Hazy pale golden body with a medium white head. Very lively carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of salted lemon, vine tomatoes and apricot. Flavour of tangy orange, yeast and white bread. Medium body with a smooth, frothy texture. Light fizz. Tastes like a less zingy version of Great Divide’s Colette.

Ktwse (3745) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2016
Pours hazy yellow with low white head. Aroma of spices, herbs, wheat, honey, funk. Taste is sweet, mild honey and wheat, maybe a bit one-dimensional. Light to medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation. Slightly boozy finish.

Heidbummer (152) - SCOTLAND - JUN 2, 2016
Can from Brewdog mail order. Pours hazy orange, tight white head. Aroma of yeast, more yeast, oranges. Nice mouthfeel. A decent ale but for the abv I was expecting more of a hit and complexity. Not really a proper full strength low countries ale. Pity, it has promise but doesn’t hit the high spots.

Scottishchris (645) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 2, 2016
Can from beerhive. Cloudy yellow gold, white head. Coriander spice. Medium body, low carb. Bready foost. Something a bit funky in there. Hmm, is this right?

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

allmyvinyl (9046) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 19, 2016
Can from Brewdog Online Shop, shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours hazy yellow with a thin, lingering white head. Aromas are bready, some orange peel, light spice, faint cooked banana. Taste is more of the same. Lacking something to take it to that next level, but pretty good.

AshtonMcCobb (4993) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Can thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - cloudy golden orange with a decent fluffy head. Some of the head hangs around. Nose - dried orange peel, loads of estery notes. Taste - rich candied orange and lemon with some spice. There’s a bread base. Palate - medium bodied with with a tangy texture and a long and fairly dry tangy finish. I’d like it slightly more tangy on the finish though. Overall - pretty good tripel, but would like a tangier finish.

Can, Brewdog Leicester. Hazy golden with a large white head. Floral with coriander and yeast. Lemon with sudsy notes. Clean on the palate. Caramel body with candy sugar. Spiced oranges. Dry finish. Duvel in character. Good.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4245) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2016
Sample at the Barrel Bar. It’s a cloudy gold and possesses a huge coriander and orange peel aroma. Fairly full bodied and rich with a sweet finish. Nice classic style Belgian beer, an easy drinking Tripel.
