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

"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."

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

Botella de 65 cl en el lúpulo en marzo de 2012. Estilo belga con sabores dulces y una buena sensación alcohólica proporcionada por sus 11 vol. Ligero amargor. Buena.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique January 2014. Great beer and great label. Fruity notes fill the nose and the beer fills the mouth with wonderful flavours - melon, peach, nectarine.

OK, we have quite a sweet alcohol bomb here. Seems like these guys aren’t familiar with brewing Belgian ales. Pours clear dark gold with a very slight white head that is gone instantly, but does leave slight lacing. Aroma is hard candy, caramel, grain, and booze. This is overwhelmingly sweet, almost like a cordial. There is some spiciness, maybe coriander, but the sweetness mostly covers it. Medium to full body, syrup-like texture, soft carbonation, and long, sweet finish. It was a good price at $6.99 for a 22 oz. bottle, but I don’t think I will be repeating this experiment. The 11.8% abv packs a punch if that’s what you’re after.

Quite a stretch at calling this a tripel. Karmeliet will always be the benchmark. Lots of candy, caramel sweetness, darkish amber, minimal head. Aroma is also sugary sweet, tending towards Southern Comfort. Lots left lacking here....

rbrazell (1646) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Clear orange pour pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma is toasted malts, baked bread, peppery yeast, and lingering banana esters. Flavor is sweet clove and banana throughout with baked bread and caramel malts. Goddamnit, I wish someone could brew this style without making it insanely sweet because I really like the style when it’s not done like shit. FART.

solidfunk (3997) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Light notes of coriander, light orange peel and good floral yeast integration. Hazy copper pour with ok head and lacing. Light sweet and sour finish. Very understated for style and alcohol content. Tap at Brew’d.
