COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Asylum is in the style of a Belgian Tripel. It has a beautiful golden color. Its relatively light body is deceiving for a beer of its character. It has a sweet and spicy, complex fruity aroma and flavor derived from our distinct Belgian yeast strain. Asylum finishes with a subtle, warming character to help you relax on any night. Asylum is an exceptionally smooth Belgian-style brew. Drinking great beer brings the world together. “Vrede op aarde” (Peace on earth).

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2010 I love abbey tripels and Asylum is no exception. Its got a nice, mostly clear golden color with a quickly dissipating head. There’s a white ring of head around the edges of the glass that never goes away. Has kind of a nutty champagne aroma. Tastes like cider and a little bit like white wine with a very slight bitter hoppy an warming alcoholic finish that lingers nicely. Great beer. At 11% ABV this will get you drunk!

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Left Coast Brewery Asylum Belgian Style Tripel 22oz 11ABV Pours golden honey with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of candied citrus fruit with spicy undertones and some alcohol. Slight yeastiness to the smell. Tastes of oranges, honey, yeast, and alcohol. Aftertaste of a screwdriver. Nice palate, the bubbles aren’t too overpowering. Good beer.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Slight hazy copper pour with an off white ring of head. Has a graham cracker and sweet honey aroma- some extra maltose is evident but it’s rounded by an herbal note. Slick body- very sweet flavor like most American takes on the style. Lots of honeyish maltose and sugary graham cracker. Hard to drink. Doesn’t hit the styles demands (dry with yeast nuance and drinkability).

puzzl (3252) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Bottle from Eugene. Weird oregano, herbal aroma, some white sugar. Rather sweet, malty/extract flavor, this has a big sugariness, with a touch of balance from some vegetal, earthy, mushroom character, and a bit of hard water filling out the finish. Unexciting, pretty typical for an American tripel.

sebletitje (6859) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2009
pours golden/orange, light off-white head. aroma hints of dark sugars, Belgian yeast, wheat/grainy nose. flavor, similar to aroma, plenty of Belgian yeast coming across, apricot like fruits for a pungent mouthfeel, light bitter finish, tad of spices, warming abv. Nice Tripel, along the style but the abv becomes a little too much on the palate.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Draught at TND: Sweet aroma of Belgian yeast, light spices, light fruit, and honey. Poured amber/gold in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Flavor is medium to heavily sweet. Tastes of Belgian yeast, spices, honey and light fruit. Light to medium body. Thin, lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, Belgian yeast, honey, and fruit finish. 11%ABV is completely hidden throughout. A bit simple and thin, but still nice.

spencerberus (5) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 15, 2009 does not count
A nice medium-pale reddish-gold color & very clear appearance, with beautiful, long-clinging lace despite the sparse head. The appearance does little to prepare you for this taste sensation, surprisingly bold and rich for such a light colored ale. After having half a glass, I was surprised to see the alcohol content, the same as the Urthel Quadrium I had very recently but not nearly as pronounced in the taste, despite the Urthel’s substantially thicker texture & taste. A nice bit of sweetness & fruit, very refreshing with a smooth, solid finish that lingers light but long. At about two-thirds to one-half the price of a comparable ale either of Belgian or domestic origin, this is a great beer and a great value that I hope to enjoy many more times.

Draft. Pours honey golden with a very thin white head. Aroma of vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, barley, and hops. Medium bodied with a slow, smooth finish. Decent.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - DEC 5, 2009
On tap at PP Strong Ale Fest 2009. Some yeasty banana aroma that is quite strong, and not exactly enjoyable. I suspect higher alcohols may be part of it. Kind of reduces drinkability.
