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.

PorterPounder (5831) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Cloudy, but brightly colored golden pour with a sticky snow white head. Aroma has hints of clove, some lemony accents. Bold, brisk flavor with some lemony accents, a yeasty back end. some sweet buttery smoothness. Sticky, chewy mouthfeel. Nice job on this one.

Pours bright golden very hazy. Nose is orange, coriander, spices, abut of yeast character. Taste is a bit of yeast character, estery, spices, orange peel, honey. Very smooth, more like a Belgian white than a Tripel. Light body for a tripel, hides the abv. Good beer, not a Tripel if you ask me.

Block (1597) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Pretty nice, balanced, still strong. Alcohol with a distinctive Belgian yeast flavor. Mild, sweet, not too malty. It has the sugar without the body.

Orange and belgian yeast scent, smell the coriander for sure. Slighlty malty. Full of complexity. Honey and coriander, orange peel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

swesson (264) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2015
From a bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow and makes a thin head that dissipates quickly and makes a small lacing print. Aroma is of coriander and citrus (both orange and lemon notes). Tastes of malted barley and orange. This is a unique Belgian Tripel. I like the interpretation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chicagobears (429) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Hazy straw yellow pour into Chimay tulip. Oranges, lemons and coriander in the nose. Flavor is very zesty with oranges, lemon rind, and spices. A biscuity and bread finish. This does resemble a Wit more than a Tripel in my opinion. It’s OK. A wee bit heavy on the orange as it dominates the taste. Would make for a good hot Summer day ale.

AmericanHobo (65) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Very refreshing orange and coriander aroma. Initial taste is full of orange flavor but well balanced finish of oats and rye. Very complex but easy drinking Tripel

jhliesen (759) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle---pours a soft, slight hazy golden color with a small head that didn’t last through the pour. Aroma of spice and banana. I pick up some yeast and slight lemon in the taste. Thin finish. The alcohol was not notice in the drink. Total Wine.
