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).

Quite a stretch at calling this a tripel. Karmeliet will always be the benchmark. Lots of candy, caramel sweetness, darkish amber, minimal head. Aroma is also sugary sweet, tending towards Southern Comfort. Lots left lacking here....

rbrazell (1692) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Clear orange pour pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma is toasted malts, baked bread, peppery yeast, and lingering banana esters. Flavor is sweet clove and banana throughout with baked bread and caramel malts. Goddamnit, I wish someone could brew this style without making it insanely sweet because I really like the style when it’s not done like shit. FART.

solidfunk (4168) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Light notes of coriander, light orange peel and good floral yeast integration. Hazy copper pour with ok head and lacing. Light sweet and sour finish. Very understated for style and alcohol content. Tap at Brew’d.

llcooldave (1102) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Pours dark gold in the glass. Descent fruity spiced aroma. Some apple pear and clove. Some more spicy clove and a hint of pepper lavor also withnthe warming hint of alcohol. Overall, a very assertive brew. Strong flavors but still somewhat drinkable. It might need to be aged for year or two to mellow out.

IrishBoy (3856) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Bomber from The Cove, a mini market close by our hotel with a few locals. Nose is candisugar, vanilla, caramel toffee. Clear gold with a medium, lightly lacing, off white head. Flavor is moderately sweet vanilla caramel chews with a tiny hint of background bitterness and no hint of the totally covered 11.8%. Exceptionally pleasant drinking after a full day at Disneyland.

BlackHaddock (3905) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
In a flight on 13th March 2014 at the Back Bay Bar inside Wholefoods store in Newport Beach. Slight haze to my golden pour, a white wisp and collar for a covering. Most likely the sweetest ’Belgian Style Tripel’ I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a few). Honey Melon came to mind as I sipped this inbetween the other three beers on the little wooden paddle my flight sat on. Maybe the other beers were dry, bitter and hoppy (good name for a beer that: Dry, Bitter and Hoppy), but this just seemed too sweet, even for my sweet tooth. On style alone it would score very poorly, as a strong beer, equally poorly: but as a ’one off’ beer from a brewery I know nothing about I’ve scored it as objectively as I can.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours a more amber color than expected, bordering on copper. There’s little head and but rabid activity below. The aroma is sweet, sugary and almost caramel. Similarly, this drinks with an unexpectedly thick and syrupy character ... rich with a definite malt backdrop. The alcohol is clearly evident. And while this is an enjoyable drink, I wouldn’t put it in the "Tripel" vein. To thick and syrupy for the style IMHO. (#5453, 3/5/2014)

Poured from a 22 oz bottle. Poured a copper color with a decent head. Big Belgian aroma which is very pleasant. Taste is citrusy, hints of bananas. Thick and heavy to me.
