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).

DenverLogan (860) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2014
From a 22 oz bottle. Poured into a Great Lakes tulip glass Pours gold with modest head and lace. Aroma of alcohol, sweet malts and some kitchen cleanser esters. Medium carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of banana, alcohol, candy cane, bubble gum, slight pepper, clove and liquorice. Overall a bit strong in alcohol in the nose and taste but tasty in the malts.

Barreras (1225) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Pours a golden copper color that is clean. Aroma is fruity and sweet at the same time. The sweet smells like light caramel mixed with a fruit cocktail. Taste is clean and crisp. Complex flavors of apricots, brown sugar and peaches. The alcohol content comes through in the aftertaste but it dissipates quickly. A well thought out balanced beer.

Drake (10406) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Bomber from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Pours a clear dark amber with a thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of pale bready malts, candi sugar, mild yeast and spice, mild fruits in the finish. The taste is candi sugar, caramel, heavy spice, yeast, red apple, bitter herbal hops in the finish. Medium bodied, lingering spice, slight booze. A little brash but still decently balanced. Nice beer.

Wow, not my snifter of beer! I have had a lot of Belgium Tripel Ales and this one doesn’t meet the eye. Not a distinctive taste nor a standout aroma or appearance. Sorry.
