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).

Bottle. A golden color with a sweet light fruity aroma without much character. A light pepper bite on an otherwise too sweet, apple, a lightly spiced flavor.

Yellow color with little head. Aroma is sweet malt, fruit, spice and alcohol. Flavor is overly sweet and hot. Not great.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 9, 2010
On tap. Pours with a huge white head over a clear golden body. Aroma of honey, pear, and candi sugar. Far too sweet smelling. Taste is sweet, coriander, caramel and alcohol. Reminds me strongly of BJ’s Grand Cru. Creamy mouthfeel. Not a good Tripel.

amazingly sweet. tastes of different dried fruits as you drink through it but remains amazingly sweet. pleasntly surprised that it is fairly dry and has a good mouth feel. the amount of remaining sugar is somehow balanced with the hardly there 11%. this is very sweet so my enjoyment tapers off but an amazingly well done trip.

Left Coast Asylum is a lively, hazy, amber ale with a lot of particles in it. It has a dense, waxy, off white head that has excellent retention and lacing. There is a warm, fruity aroma with notes of green apple, pear, hay and something spicy. It’s pretty full bodied, very smooth and syrupy. There’s a dry finish that leaves the mouth a little sticky. It has a very phenolic flavor. There are notes of tart apple and something earthy, like manure. It has sort of a Band-Aid aftertaste. I think this bottle may have been sitting around for a while.

Dogbrick (9643) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Bottle courtesy of a traveling colleague. The beer is a deep copper-gold color with a medium frothy white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Sweet fruit and bready malt aroma. Medium chewy body with a borderline cloying sweetness and flavors of yeast, tropical fruit and a touch of peppery spice. The finish is sweet malt with a yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

JaBier (5616) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Bottle shared by Dogbrick. Pours a clear gold with a medium white head. Malty and grainy aroma that is also estery, but not too much banana going on. Sweet malt and non-banana Belgian yeast flavor with some caramel and cognac before a bready finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber body with an off white head. Fruity apples and apricot esters. Dark fruit and some yeast y apple tones, with a hint of cinnamon. Somehow bland even at 11% which seems well hidden. Some light plum and mineral notes.

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!
