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.

Really enjoyed this abbey tripel style ale- balance of barley, rye and wheat without tasting too bready. Nice hops bring out the spices of coriander and yeast, to showcase the great complexity and flavor therein. Would love to have again.

Pours a hazy dark yellow. Sweet, citrusy and slightly floral aroma. Same Belgium style taste you expect with a nice orange and yeasty flavor.

12oz bottle. Who did these guys steal a recipe from? Clear beer, small head, bright straw color. Nice spicy aroma, smells of coriander and spice, authentic. Tastes are citrus, spice, herbs, sweet, a little sour, somewhat dry, and a little alcoholic. Great divide did their homework, it tastes terrific. Lots of "tasties".

Livendadream (261) - New Mexico, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow color. Thick white head with nice initial lacing. Sweet fruity citrus smell, almost candylike bubble gum aroma. Malty sweetness followed by spiciness. Finishes with a mellow tartness that leaves tongue tingling. No alcohol notes considering its an 8.3 % abv brew. Great beer, has nice wit beer like quality with high ABV. Lots of different flavors going on here. Very complex, definitely seek out again.

On tap. Poured yellow with medium head. Aroma grassy and floral. Chewy rose, sweet but complex enough to score big.

Bottle. Hazy gold with short lasting white head. Smells like a wheat beer. Citrus fruit taste maybe a tiny bit of banana. Not too much hop taste. Alcohol is there but covered up. Finish is also citrus. Not what I expected but I liked it .

Can pour from Wally’s. Aroma is Belgian fruity esters, banana, bubblegum, with some tart. Appearance is cloudy yellow with nice sparkle, finger-width foamy white head with poor retention and nice, leggy lacing. Taste is as aroma with moderately sweet fruity esters with late tart but also with overarching light orange and spice. Don’t taste the alcohol. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture and average to lively carbonation and lasting sweet/tart finish. Overall, a nice beer with some nice subtle complexity. Not getting the hop contributions typical for the style, but not really missing them either.

For me Tripel and pizza is one of those can’t-miss combos, which is why I find myself returning to it so often. Last night’s pairing was a delicious slice of spicy, bready, and citrusy plus a glass of spicy, bready, and citrusy courtesy of Yia Yia’s. Orabelle has a golden pour. Its yeast esters have fruity, spicy aromas. Bread and mildly tart citrus flavors. The spice note is fairly complex with a big nod toward coriander and subtler touches of clove and ginger. Feel is bright, smooth, and semi-dry at the finish. Overall, a lovely Tripel and an excellent addition to a meal.

Bottle from Capone’s, Blue Dog, and Craft Ale. Pours turbid "1 hour after taking a Centrum multi-vitamin urine yellow" with 1-finger white head. Nose is a lovely and vibrant medley of coriandery spice, funky yeasty malt, hopcitrus, lime, orange zest. Tastes citric, limey and orange zesty, with mid-palate coriandery spice, white pepper, funky yeasty malt, and an overall flavor profile like a 33/33/33 mix of witbier, Belgian IPA, and saison, but with more oomph and flair. Well done.
