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. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Light yeasty, some lemony citric and spicy notes, and some malty sweetness. Pretty well balanced.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2013
12oz bottle, bottled 1/2/13. Hazy dandelion yellow color. Thin white head, decent lace. Orange citrus and floral nose. Awesome big zesty orange peel flavor (bigger than I’m used to from the tripel style), floral notes, light spice with a very enjoyable yeast character - not too belgian, not too little belgian. Just belgian enough. Very smooth, light crisp carbonation, lightly creamy texture, but a good, more dry finish. Zesty sweet taste, little bitterness, bit of umami. This is a fantastic tripel. Unique, tasty, easy to drink.. and $11 for a 6-pack!

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2013
bottle. heavily hazed golden wheat body, small white head, yeast does not come out of suspension. might guess about some sour mash wheat and malt here, there’s a lot of minerals / salted lemon / dish soap / tart citrus acid in the nose, but there’s also some coriander / ginger / peppercorn notes that are affecting it. syrupy, sweet, Belgian-style golden ale, that’s about what it is. but it becomes terribly sweet and juicy - making me salivate and gleek - and the oily and syrupy sugar just sits permanently in the mouth. dang. have to say the nose had promise but the flavor and texture - goopy, syrupy, cloying - ruin it for me.

Bottle to snifter (thanks tmoney99). Looks solid; a semi-transparent gold with white lacing. Smells of dough, Belgian yeast, orange zest, and pepper. Tastes like it smells without the pepper. Good on the palate. Not bad.

drowland (9080) - Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2013
2/1/13. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Hazy golden orange pour with a nice khaki head that fades to a ring and barely laces. Fruity esters, lots of orange, and wheat in the aroma. The flavor boasts more orange, some sugar, a touch of spice, and a hint of lingering dryness. Somehow it reminds me of a fancier, stronger Blue Moon. Not bad.

Ibrew2or3 (8828) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 23, 2013
12oz bottle pours with a clear watery gold body that supports a bright white head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, biscuit malts, spicy Belgian yeast and a touch of lime. The taste begins with Belgian spicy yeast flowing into sweet sugary malts as well as pears, honey covered apple wedges and figs. Pretty nice.

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.
