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).

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2013 This 22-oz. bottle was a joint tasting with Strykzone on Facebook chat. This poured clear deep gold with an off-white head and light lacing. Nose of ripe fruit, yeast, and honey Medium body and a slick mouthreel. Th flavor was sweet, almost cloyingly so. Some unidentifiable spice in the finish .A little too much alcohol and sweetness for me. I tried another bottle here in Idaho. This one needs to be sipped.

22 oz. bottle sent by Hayduke with whom I enjoyed a fun Facebook chat along with Rick, his brother. This beer looked like honey in the glass but with an off white head and some slow moving carbonation. Aroma was big tangerine, yeast, and honey with a hint of spice. Flavor was almost the same. Honey, candi sugar and yeast seemed to dominate which made for a cloyingly sweet beer. That sweetness lasted throughout. Later in the glass the tangerine came out. The spice kept teasing but never came out as hoped. This beer was all about honey, yeast, and tangerine. It was nice but just too sweet and too much alcohol (which thankfully was hidden) for me.

Bomber poured a clear golden amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of candy sugar, carmel, pear and spice. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of candy sugar, carmel, pear and spice with a crisp lingering sweet spiced finish.

bottle pours hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus hops, yeast, some pine notes. Flavor is interesting, starts with sweet grassy malts, citrus notes follow and end with a spruce and grassy finish.

It pours a golden red color with a small amount of head that faded fast. The Aroma is sour malt, sweet cherries, and yeast. The only thing I can think after the first sip is how sweet it is. Its too sweet. The taste is sickly sweet cherry, caramel malts, and a hint of alcohol. No hops whatsoever. This is a heavy, sweet beer that is going to be tough to finish.

A pretty tastey ale with a very sweet beginning. Lots of caramel flavor along with slight butterscotch. Not brimming with Belgian yeast, but quite good.

Sampled in a bomber. Drinks nice and crisp but really doesnt really offer much else. For 11%, you really cant taste the high alcohol percentage but this is just your average brew.

Fred82 (2154) - Qubec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2010
Bottle at a tasting thanks to Marcdesthya.
Appearance : Hazy amber with a small head.
Aroma : Spicy and yeasty.
Taste : Spices with strong notes of star anise. Quite sweet.
Overall : Lots of anise in there. Like drinking a Sambuca. Interesting but not really along the lines of a regular Tripel. Interesting but not so good.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Medium golden color. Very fruity nose, slight spice notes. When it sits longer the warmer temp gives a better aroma, very nice. Soft , sweet and warm initial taste. Very sweet and fruity on the palate, breadlike. Not too mellow, a little astringent. This beer needs to sit for awhile. Then after a few years it should balance nicely.

Ron shared some of his bottle - thanks Ron! Dark cloudy orange, decent retention and lacing pattern. Grainy nose, and Ill admit is smelled nice, a bit spicy, but I had trouble picking out what was there. Nice full body for a tripel. A bit of banana and some butterscotch in there. Syrupy, very tasty, I really enjoyed this one.
