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. ďVrede op aardeĒ (Peace on earth).

Aroma is heavy BSA malts, caramel and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is caramel/toffee, mild/medium sweetness, mild burnt/off notes, nuttiness and a tart/sour finish.

No head, goes will light carbonation. Pretty sweet, light syrup, overripe light colored fruit, a bit of bite at the end, otherwise this would not be good. Warm. Pretty ok.

Doesnít really taste too much like a Belgian style tripel. Pours a very interesting clear copper color with a white head. Not much smell, a littl thyme and a little booze. Taste is very malty and boozy, but not much beyond that. Would be decent for a strong ale, but not complex enough for a Belgian tripel. Maybe a little boozy for its own good. Paired with a peach mozzarella spring salad cuts out some of the maltiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours clear gold, minimumal head, and low carbonation. Nice strong sweet and spicy aroma. Flavor is mild spice, pepper, and buttery. Somewhat syrupy on the palate and a warming in the gut. ABV is nicely hidden. Overall, I enjoyed this, but Iím not sure this is true to style hence the lower score.

Ughsmash (7003) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bomber. Poured medium golden with a short white head. The aroma picked up sweeter honey and smoky notes with honey and meaty bread backing.. warm. The flavor found honey and lightly-smoked bread at the core, with peppery alcohol around.. finished spicy and hot. Heavier-bodied with low-ish carbonation.. a bit rough.

Off orange pour whispy white head slightly sweet aroma a touch of funk a fair amount of fuesel alcohol and a hint of smoke. Full well coated palate. Flavor is sweet and pretty plain. Lots of sugar not much else.

Fatehunter (1076) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Poured a thin head on a hazy, dark straw colored body. The aroma is overripe fruit, candy-like. The taste is quite sweet overall with some pear and apple. Finishes with an alcohol warmth. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Itís a very sweet tasting beer without any of the complexities and balance of a good tripel.

DeekayProtege (1) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2013 does not count
Very fruity, sweet, and boozy on the nose. Pours a very flat head--would have liked more lively carbonation. Little strong and a little sweet for me, though certainly worth a try!

Fantomasus (200) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Pours a hazy orange hard candy with no head. Aroma:caramel, spruce, herbs, basement aromas, alcohol, maybe some banana, vanilla... Most interesting aspect of the brew. Taste is way sour... Palate: Lingering bitter astringent... Wonít buy again.

22 fl oz / 650ml bottle into a trappist glass. Served cold. Aroma: Sweetish, maybe a little caramel. Yeast is slightly sour. Not the typical fresh bread that Iím used to from Belgian style ales. Appearance: Hazy, dark amber body, very sparse head. Taste: Sourish, tart yeast. A little bit of spice; cloves, nutmeg. Pretty exceptionally tart though. Eh. Palate: Medium body, long boozy finish. The alcohol is obvious. Kind of a warmer. Overall: Not what I was expecting at all. After having Chimayís Triple a couple of days ago, and Rochefort 10, I was expecting something a little breadier, a little sweeter. Itís a good beer, and a fun take on the style, but itís not my favorite, and I think I prefer a slightly sweeter Triple/Quad over this guy.
