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).

MartinVanBeer (116) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Amber pour with a small white head. Spicy aroma with some plum and lemon rind. The body is kind of thick for a triple, but it has nice deep fruit flavors, some good spice (red pepper and clove), a little honey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2014
From a 12 oz bottle into a Belgian snifter. Cloudy amber color like an unfiltered apple cider. Topped with a small white head that quickly recedes to a thin ring. Oddly, the sweet aroma has a clear suggestion of apples, and is markedly fruity. The flavor is way too sweet, with brown sugar, alcohol, caramel malts and spices. Off style and not appealing. O: Drinkable but not very good, and an insult to Belgian brewers to include that "Belgian-style" on the label. I’ll now avoid this brewery which may be pinning it’s forutnes on the resemblance of Left Coast to the far superior brewrs, Lost Coast and Left Hand.

StevieT (735) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2014
From a bottle. Pours dull cloudy amber with minimal head, mild sour flavour and aroma, very smooth with no hint of the huge alcohol content. Dangerously drinkable.

rosenbergh (7364) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2014
From a 12 oz bottle in the Greenville Beer Exchange tasting event in Greenville, NC.
Cloudy yellow golden colour with a small white head. Belgian yeast, sweetness, mild bitterness and malty dryness. A bit unbalanced and sweet aroma. The flavour is sweetness, alcohol, malt, spices and hoppy bitterness. Quite typical strong American Belgian brew.

SlimHabib (227) - California, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle pour. Hazy golden with very little head. Bubblegum, cloves, and alcohol. Medium body. Bubblegum and sweet alcohol taste. Not the best tripel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Brew’d Pub. Clear golden amber color, white edge head. Aroma is herbal and floral. Taste is gritty and spiced.

Kevin (2102) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 19, 2014
as soon as i started to pur this i thought "aww, man this fucker is oxidized, how old is it?" paper dust cardboard notes are strong. smells like old wax wrapped around dry honey. pours what can only be described as piss when you haven’t been drinking enough liquids. first sip is all husked up grains and age/ this tastes like someone with alzheimers made oatmeal. just so many things are wrong. and i have 22oz’s to drink. i will look for another sample, but will post this rating in case it is a beer issue and not an age issue.no bottle dates that i can see so i can’t disqualify this from that info.

"A solid if not spectacular triple. Equal parts sweet, fruit, bubble gum and clove like spice, nose and flavor the same. Medium bodied. Shoes some alcohol but not too bad."

ClutchMasterson (60) - Aiea, Hawaii, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Pours a crisp yet hazy golden color. Aroma is of spice and more of a tar rather than resin. Hints of banana and clove with a slight earthy and malty tone. Taste of spice and clove with a hint of honey and hay mixed with dough. Sweetness hits you in the front and light bitterness in the back which fades quickly. Overall this is a good beer in which I could drink again. It’s not bad at all but yes I have had better Belgians
