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).

Strong spice and citrus aroma. 12% alcohol is definitely apparent. Hints of citrus, spice, and banana show through on this Belgium Triple. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Elwood (3200) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark amber color with a thin white head. The head fades pretty fast. Slightly medicinal nose with notes of bread, apple, and pale honey. The flavor carries that medicinal, almost band aid like note forward. Rather sweet on the palate with obvious alcohol and a slight breadiness. This one needs to be smoothed out a bit. Certainly not much of a match against some of the better Belgians out there.

Arayaga2 (1783) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Hazy amber with a cm of white head. Aroma is like a lightly spiced apple cider. Taste is the same, but unexpectedly boozy up front, with lots of intense malt flavors and a quickly fading minerality. Nice warming in a winter Belgian-esque. $7/22oz

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 21, 2013
22oz bottle - The beer pours out a dark straw colored body, murky with a nice fluffy 2" off-white head. Aroma is strong with honey-like malts, bread dough, a hint of smoke and rubbing alcohol. Flavor is much too sweet for a tripel, with a strong peppery flavor lurking around. Where is the complexity? Seems like an underattenuated strong ale than a tripel.

MadRobin (1940) - Silver Spring, USA - NOV 5, 2013
On tap 5 oz. sample at Judges' Bench in Ellicott City, MD. Hazy, pale amber with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of apple, peach, honey and floral hops. Taste of caramel, bitter floral hops, honey and spice. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. A decent beer, but I wouldn't exactly call it a tripel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wlajwl (3881) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 30, 2013
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.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2013
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.

monk191 (930) - California, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Doesn’t 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

greenhorn1 (812) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - AUG 30, 2013
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 I’m not sure this is true to style hence the lower score.

Ughsmash (7136) - 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.
