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).

light golden pour with medium white head - aromas of grass and hay with some malt and mild fruity hops - barnyard belgian style flavor (of which I’m not a huge fan) - with lingering fizzy malt

Bottle. Pours a more amber color than expected, bordering on copper. There’s little head and but rabid activity below. The aroma is sweet, sugary and almost caramel. Similarly, this drinks with an unexpectedly thick and syrupy character ... rich with a definite malt backdrop. The alcohol is clearly evident. And while this is an enjoyable drink, I wouldn’t put it in the "Tripel" vein. To thick and syrupy for the style IMHO. (#5453, 3/5/2014)

Poured from a 22 oz bottle. Poured a copper color with a decent head. Big Belgian aroma which is very pleasant. Taste is citrusy, hints of bananas. Thick and heavy to me.

RedSox2004 (1137) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Clear copper gold with a dense one-finger head and very nice lace. Rich Belgian yeast aroma with graham cracker, banana, pepper, lemon and bandaids. Taste is mostly sweetness and alcohol, with citrus, nuts, and a touch of oatmeal. Medium body, lively carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a lingering sense of alcohol in the finish.

DenverLogan (750) - 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 (849) - 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.

Taste is fruity with more bananas foster, chewy caramel, toasted malt, booze, soft citrus and faint spice. Body is medium and slightly chewy with warming boozy notes and a soft, creamy carbonation. Ends with more boozy notes, strong fruit, yeast, caramel, sweet malt, french toast and soft spices.

Very nice ale. Pours a dark golden. Murky. Aromas are booze, banana, bubblegum and Belgian candy. Sweet candy and banana flavors. A bit flat but still a very nice trippel.

Buttery aroma. Orange body. Sweet taste with a touch if butter and booze heat. Not bad but not a great tripel. Thanks cards04 for the taste
