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.

draft at tap room. Pours yellow with white head. Aroma is a bit spicy, clove. Medium bodied. Flavor has notes of wheat, belgian yeast, and spice, but lacks the fruitiness and complexity of a good tripel. I love great divide’s american beer styles but like the collete "saison", this tripel leaves a lot to be wanted.

Got this brew on tap, poured in a tulip glass at Brix in Greeley, CO. Yellow-gold in color. Very cloudy, hazy, not at all transparent. Good carbonation with lively bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass and nice lacing. Very pleasant aroma, fruity, sweet, hints of floral and spices. Lively, crisp mouthfeel. Sweet, complex flavor with a yummy Belgian funk. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this beer & would definitely have it again!

Bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy bright gold, with a moderate dense white head that fades quickly. Nose is orange peel and coriander. taste is of orange peel and coriander, with some sweetness. Not really a tripel if you ask me, but a good Belgian style warm weather ale. I’ll buy it again.

Vinylholic (16) - Uniontown, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Strong floral aroma with grassy/yeasty notes. Pours a medium/light yellow with a medium head. Sweet floral taste combined with citrus. Lively carbonation and a sweeter finish. An excellent warm-weather choice.

fidelis83 (2097) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Cloudy gold pour with a one - two finger creamy bright white head. Aroma is big on orange peel and coriander, some cereal, berry notes, banana and light bready notes. Flavor is candied orange peel, big doughy raw yeast, lots of wheat tanginess, lots of coriander. Medium to heavy body, creamy, to gloopy entry, light to medium carbonation and sticky, slightly chalky finish. Decent overall, too much orange peel and coriander. So much orange peel and coriander....

One of the better U.S. examples of a tripel. Great Divide never fails to disappoint and this one is no exception.

Another great beer from Great Divide. Just wrote down a score, no tasting notes. Here are some more letters so it will accept my review.

looks white head and hazy yellow. Nose is oranges bread yeasty flowers. Tastes eatery light banana bread cloves thick. Hints of vanilla. Reminiscent of a hefeweizen and a saison but not really either.

bottle to glass; I reserve the right to try this again in the summer on a hot day; this was an odd combo of beer parts - not sure I got much triple - palate was nice - had some honey and citrus in this, but a thicker beer; not sure what goal was???

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.
