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).

A light spicy aroma with lots of zest and some orange. Really smells good. First sip I found to be excellent. Didnít seem like it was all that strong (til the morning) and found quite drinkable. Would definitely have again.

a simply marvelous Tripel. beautiful morphing taste that includes perfume of melon and is flowery without being a pain in the ass. complex body it is slick ,juicy sweet with honey and finishes refreshing and dry. what else does one want?! nice aroma of fresh wheat and hardly any hint of alcohol in the flavor. the spice is there but fits in and doesnít dominate. I could go on about this one. I will not tell where I got it.

Look, if you people donít like strong beers, then donít drink this. If a double dubble is a quadruple, then this is the worldís first sextuple - a double triple. This beer is incredibly smooth and well integrated for its size. Lemon and yeast on the nose, huge apricots, honey and a hint of belgian funkiness pulling up the rear. At a good price, too. Nice silk-screened label.

Clear caramel color. Sweet yeasty aroma. Starts off sweet and yeasty but mellows during the sip into nice and smooth. Rinses away silky leaving the palate enticed and stimulated.

great sweet taste in a 22 oz. bottle... the 11% volume gets the job done pretty fucking quick!

I see complaints about this beer. I donít know. I really like it. Itís easy drinking. Iíve had every type of belgian style tripel around, my favs are the Trappistes Rochefort 6,8 and 10. The problem is those are overly expensive for 11.2 ounce beers. Hell, those beers (like the 10) are around 7$ a bottle. This one is 6.50$ usd in my area (southern california) and itís really enjoyable. People say the alcohol is present, I donít really sense that. What I get is a smooth drinking beer that gets nice as it warms up a bit. Itís got a tad of sweetness, but itís not overwhelming. Itís got some tiny smoke to it, maybe some currant and vanilla and I donít know. Itís just damn good. Not sure what people complain about.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 I love this beer. I donít think of it as a trippel though. Itís so unique, I cannot really classify it. It has flavors of late harvest white wines - incredibly ripe, juicy flavors. Then there is a caramel, brown sugar and even maple like creamy sweetness underneath it all. Absolutely no bitterness whatsoever. It coats your mouth and throat with these flavors and warms. I really, really think this is a wonderful beer. Very underrated. Maybe because it claims to be a Trippel and itís really just Asylum.

Happy Darwin Day! A beautiful, slightly hazy, orange colored beer with no head, just a bit of a beige ring around the edge of the glass. Bubblegum scent as typical of Belgians, mild pine. Sweet with loads of malt, lightly flavored of tropical fruit & breakfast cereal. Nice feel, slick, coats the mouth, alcohol warms on the way down. Easy drinking for nearly 12% ABV.

Straw colored pouring with 4 inches of foamy goodness. Strong aroma of yeast and vanilla. Heavy flavor of dense barley malt that tasted like its still fermenting. The feel is well architected with only a slight warming sensation. The finish is flavorful and bitter. This could be your dinner and your drink.
