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).

A light spicy aroma with lots of zest and some orange. Really smells good. First sip I found to be excellent. Didn’t seem like it was all that strong (til the morning) and found quite drinkable. Would definitely have again.

Look, if you people don’t like strong beers, then don’t drink this. If a double dubble is a quadruple, then this is the world’s 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!

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 I love this beer. I don’t think of it as a trippel though. It’s 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 it’s really just Asylum.

Una triple bona i contundent. Potser es nota un punt alcohòlic. Però a mi m’encanta. Molt bona compra.

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.

Crystal clear amber with a white head. Nice malty sweet aromas of bubblegum, cotton candi, with apple sauce and cinnamon. Smooth medium body. Very good earthy mango and light pit fruit flavors with spicy yeasts. A most tasty tripel, one of the best from the West.

One of the better Tripels I’ve tried. Poors smoothly, continues to fizz and the head doesn’t deplete after the first 10 seconds like most tripels. Has a significant unique after taste that leaves your belly warm.

22 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Fairly dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light creaming carbonation. Aromas of big apple, pear, grape, lemon, candi sugar, honey, bread, clove, light pepper, floral, herbal earthiness, and yeast esters. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and spicy notes; without feeling too malty. Taste of pear, apple, grape, lemon, honey, candi sugar, bready grain, floral, clove, light pepper, and herbal earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, honey, candi sugar, bready grain, clove, light pepper, floral, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity and spicy flavors; with zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and full bodied; with a moderately slick and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice tripel. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters with malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for 11.8%. Really enjoyed this one.
