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).

notalush (4839) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Pours a syrupy hazy gold - soapy lace - aroma of honey, overripe apples and pears, banana, some orange, a light mustiness - about as sweet as you would expect an american-made tripel to be - quite a bit of overripe light fruits and sugary sweetness up front - a fair amount of citrus tang - develops some graininess and herbal bitterness through the middle, leading to a boozy finish - some belgian spiciness - not as bad as I was expecting, but it kind of hurts going down.

Bottle. Aroma of spices, a general herbal nature, lots of citrus. Flavor is insanely orangey and seedy, completely overwhelming yeasty notes and malty notes. The spice character tries its best to bite into all those orange seeds, but really to no avail, as the orange becomes increasingly harsh. Not good.

marcus (6441) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 26, 2009
This blonde ale poured with a decent off-white head and a fruity aroma. The flavor is sweet and spicy with notes of candi sugar. The alcohol is too noticeable and the overall taste is not real pleasant.

DYCSoccer17 (3313) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 26, 2009
22 ounce bottle purchased from the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma is harshly ethanolic with a little bit of light sweet honey. Smells like this stuff could be a good stain remover or something like that. Certainly not a beer. Transparent honey color with a small, lifeless off-white head. This is a trippel? Sweet, fruity, sugary start, which becomes estery with some bananas and then a harsh, dry boozy ethanolic finish. This is not enjoyable at all. Between this and their Hop Juice, I am beginning to think that this brewery is really substandard. If you could imagine a malt liquor with Belgian yeast, then this is your beer.

LilBeerDoctor (3442) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep orange with hardly any head. Aroma of sweet citrus fruits, yeast, melon rind, minerals, and light spices (clove). Flavor is initially sweet and tangy, with orange peel and citrus notes. Like drinking a glass of thick, pulpy, super tart OJ with a touch of vegetal notes. Certainly strong and a quite difficult to get through the whole glass. The 11% is definitely noted. 6/4/6/3/12 (3.1/5)

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Bottle frim Ron’s. Pours chill hazy copper with 2-finger white head. Nose is rock sugary malt, florals, mils spice and hopcit. Tastes malty, floral, spicy, with some fruit. The repour falls off a bit and gets a bit hot, and the complexity is lacking a bit here.

bb (6850) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Bottle. Amber beer with a whitish head. Fruity estery aroma with some yeastiness. Fruit ester and sweet malt flavor with yeast. Medium bodied. Sweet malt lingers with esters. A bit of residual sugar in this one.

great sweet taste in a 22 oz. bottle... the 11% volume gets the job done pretty fucking quick!

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Bomber. Yeast, fruits and spice for a decent aroma. Amber body with white head. Flavor was good with some fruit and spice mix. But second glass from bottle man was like medicine spiced cough syrup sludge that was hard to drink. Odd brew almost like there were two different beers in the 22oz bottle.

ChazMania (653) - Pasadena, California, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Bomber. This was a rough bottle to get through. It poured nice enough. Aroma was very sweet and the flavor was too sweet, like cotton candy that burns with alcohol. Way hot alcohol on this.
