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).

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 (11614) - 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 (7027) - 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.

virtuosovii (103) - California, USA - JAN 23, 2010
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 (3045) - 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 (3259) - 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 (9348) - 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 (4959) - 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.
