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).

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Pours a peach orange with just a few bubbles on top. Aroma is of sweet honey and nectar, a little fruit. Flavor is all rich, sweet malt. There’s a lot of fruit in there too I should add. A lot lighter/crisper than I expected, but it works out. Alcohol warms the chest after a couple of sips. Medium palate and viscosity. Not special or unique, but easy to like. Overall very good minus.

MiP (13774) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle. Mild farty aroma, nicely malty and spicy. Hazy golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is quite sweet and spicy, good alcohol level. Slightly rough alcohol flavour and bitterness, but that is needed to balance the sweetness a bit.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2009
It is a beautiful warm amber color and the head is creamy. The aroma has sweetness and notes of spice, yeast and malt. The flavour has sweetness and notes of coriander, other spices, yeast, malt, fruit, citrus, alcohol and the finish is slightly dry. IMO it’s a bit too sweet....

dalekliz (882) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thick foamy white head. Rich aroma, of malt, dark fruits, wood, sugar, and a hint of citrus. Taste is quite sweet, a lot of sugar, candied fruits, malt, dates, and wood. Lingering sweetness. Pretty good, but kind of boring.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Notes of yeasty esters on the nose, dust, sweet grain, sugars, light banana, apple, and pear. Banana, pear, grain, honey, sugar, apple, alcohol.some limgering burn and sweetness. It leaked a little in my luggage so carb was softer than expected, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it could have been.

notalush (4992) - 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.
