The light fruity aroma and subtle flavors of Tripel Nova disguise the euphoric kick that comes after just one serving of this strong Belgian ale.

Bottle from the cellar. Still boozy and sweet, but I kinda like that. I can see where this could be a love or hate beer. For me it is on the upper end.

Good stuff, drinkable, sweet and very summery. Orange and banana feature heavily, with an appropriate tang of alcohol that makes it feel like some sort of elaborate vodka cocktail. Nice full offering in a season usually full of mild, light, and/or overspiced beers.

brokensail (9950) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 8, 2011
A: The pour is a pale golden yellow color with a finger of white head. S: Quite sweet and heavy on the toffee and bread. A definite booziness as well as some apple cider. Some musty straw and maybe a bit of spice and yeast. T: A little bit of banana, bubblegum, and some bready malt. Heavy flavors of straw and apple (and apple cider). Some straw and a light mustiness. M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. O: Not a very good tripel. Weird flavors and aromas.

pours an amazingly clear gold.. medium strength head, light spotty receipt lacing .. . pretty one dimensional, but still quite tasty.. . a filtered tripel, it seems to take some of the luster away from a fine product, needs more yeast and more complexity, BUT is quite amazing in that fact; smooth mouth, light, and a summers tripel.. hell, this would get you in so much trouble .. . an awesome tripel.. i really enjoyed its simplicity and layed back style.. . thanks john!! . .. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Istk6I24GJE

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2011 12oz bottle shared at the local HB club meeting. Clear lighter golden. color. Banana and light sweetness in the nose.. A pretty well fermented beer which actually makes the banana esters and sweetness a little overbearing in the flavor. Another too sweet American triple but light on body, too light. Make the body bigger and see where the beer goes.

Sample at the brewpub on 10/16/10. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Aroma of citrus, banana and honey. Banana and spice flavor with honey and a cloying syrupy sweet finish.

Bottle at Funky 6. Pours hazy gold with a slight, white head. Nice aroma with some banana, candy and yeast. Quite sweet with caramel, bread, yeast and more fruits. Medium in body with lively carbonation. Finishes sweet with mild spices and lingering bread and yeast. Very good.
