THE most disgusting beer I've ever drank. It had the aroma and taste of some kind of smoked, potted meat. Absolutely atrocious. Extremely disappointed!

As with many Ale Asylum beers, the dominant sweetness is a big detraction. What Belgium is able to achieve in terms of boozy Tripels that somehow remain light and crisp is missing. The right flavors are here - a general mix of fruit and spice - but the alcohol heat and syrupy sweetness detract.

An outstanding Belgian style triple that finishes on a sweet note. Perfectly hopped, strong, and beautiful, this is a beer you don't want to miss.

Drinkable but that's about all I can say for it. Boozy, metallic and not very interesting. My least favorite tripel to date. Perhaps I got a bad bottle.

Ale Asylum Tripel Nova. No ABV given. They never do. But, i had one at the brewery a few weeks ago, pretty sure it was from 8.5%-10. Sounds about right.

Slightly hazy, bright golden hue, below a snow white cap of foam, slim but staying.

Aroma: Spice and sweetness first, with mild fruit notes below. Beautiful nose, note perfect for a triple.

Taste: Bittersweet hop attack hits first, then is overcome by spice and Belgian yeast character. Sweet, fruity notes dominate the palate, mingle with spice and never quite split the scene. Alcohol creeps up a bit, as with any good triple. Just enough spice and fruit. Just enough of everything. Not bad, not bad at all.

What's the gobbledygook? "Golden in color, with a bouquet of fruit and spice, this Belgian-style tripel has a touch of summer sweetness and a euphoric finish. Tripel Nova is brewed with passion and is best enjoyed that way."
