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).

Tasted 6/14/10. 22oz bomber. Pours a filtered dark golden honey hue. Bubbled ring of white head. Aromas of immediate mustiness! Whew! Followed slowly and meekly by an undertone of caramel and cinnamon toast. Hmm. Red berry esters and tart apples. Flowers and spices. Funky, but I really dig it. Medium to full bodied with a totally different and milder palate than olfactory. Medium toasted sweet bread malts and spices. A decent amount of burn in the tail end of the malt palate and into the lingering cloying finish. "Subtle, warming character" is no joke! Sit back and enjoy. This is really evolving with temperature. Smooth sipper that just needed to open up a lil bit. True to style with a complexity that sets it apart from the pack. Whether in front of, or behind said pack is up to the consumer. I give it a leg up!

The pour is a clear, coppery golden color with an average, creamy, pillowy, white head which is somewhat lasting, and leaves a bit of Belgian lace. The nose is bot quite as Belgian as most tripels but still nice with light clovey phenols, cinnamon, starfruit, light gala apples, some toasted caramel, and faint fresh herb hop notes. The flavor is much sweeter than I would like in a tripel but still pleasant; gala apples and cinnamon are prominent, some vanilla, peppery warmth noted only in the finish, and maybe just a light bitterness from some herbal hops. The palate is lively, warm, medium, and creamy/watery in mouthfeel. The finish is where the warmth makes its presence known, spices of pepper and cinnamon, apples still, and just enough dryness to avoid cloying sweetness. Not really a typical tripel with not enough hops, the appearance and palate were lacking, and too much sweetness in the flavor. However, as a BSGA it was nice with a few areas lacking. A very Delerium-type Belgian but just not quite at the same level.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear orange color with minimal head. Flavor is initially quite the punch in the mouth, with strong honey like sweetness, yeast, somewhat bready, alcohol, warming. Ripe fruits are also present. An intense beer.

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.

BMan1113VR (7917) - 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.
