Finally! A Begian Style Tripel that does not break the bank. I have a bottle of La Trappe in the fridge, one of my favorite Tripels, but that set me back $12 for a bomber which is $6 for a glass of beer. Great for a special event, but where is the common man's Tripel? Dry Dock brews a good one, but it is still $6 for a bomber and not always available. New Belgium comes close with their Trippel, but it has a bit much coriander for my taste. So I jumped at the chance to try the Great Divide Orabelle when I saw the six pack in the beer cooler for $10. The color is a cloudy peach with a thin head and little carbonation. Belgian yeast and bready sweetness come through the aroma. So far so good. The flavor is big on apricot with a touch of honey. Very light pepper touches the finish to make for an outstanding Belgian Style Tripel. Thank you Great Divide! (The Great Divide Colette is worth a try as well....)

Picked this up based on a recommendation and wow it is good!

A: Rich cloudy golden color.

S: Really good! Floral, sweet, hints of banana and a bit of lemon.

T: Follows the smell, a tangy sweetness but very mild. Belgian yeast, banana, honey, lemon.

M: Very smooth, the easiest drinking triple I'v had.

O: Wow this is a great beer! Extremely easy drinking for 8.3%, but it is not lacking taste either. One of the best triples I'v tried!

App- Great unfiltered golden hazy wheat
Smell- malttastic, yeasty, citrus tones
taste-malty, ester, goodness
mf- maybe a little more carb is needed

overall- A lot of hop punks and beli snobs rated this beer way to low. I drink(and rate as my fav bev) a french canadian tripel all the time and this one is so close to it. Great Divide listen to my praises and keep making this beer, I LOVE IT!

I was going to quick review this but I can't. Poured 12oz into goose island belgian chalice. This beer pours golden yellow, hazy, small white head. The smell is divine, banana, Belgian yeast, orange, coriander, hint of vanilla. Tastes as good as it smells, very refreshing, Belgian yeast, sweet orange and coriander, some lemon, and the texture is almost silky. It's like a more flavorful hefe. This beer is very very good, glad to see it on Ohio shelves.
