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).

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.

22 oz bottle pours out a brownish orange color topped with a sand head. Nose is toast malts candy sweetness a little bit of brown sugar and some spice. Taste is more of the sweet malts spice a little bit of Belgian influence.

Glinting golden amber color with a thin head of offwhite head of soapy foam. Concentrated caramel malt backbone with some sweet plum. A bit oily slick on the mouthfeel. A tad medicinal in its delivery. Overall a surprising good Tripel that hides its ABV well.

Idiosynkrasie (8065) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2017
355ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey, deep golden colour with small, frothy, diminishing, white head. Bready malty, fruity and peppery spicy yeasty aroma, lots of marzipan, hints of honey and apricot. Taste is sweet, bready malty, fruity, alcoholic and minimally peppery spicy yeasty, notes of marzipan, honey, hints of apricot. Oily texture, full body, lasting and warming finish.

Worst beer I’ve had in a long time. Absolutely disgusting. I mean it makes PBR taste good. I just about puked when I tried it and that is no exaggeration. Belgian style tripel, funny joke.

Flaska på Thunder Bay Grille Pewaukee. Orangefärgad med vitt skum. Tung doft med bourbon, torkad frukt och kola. Lite spretig med kola och torkad frukt.

A great tripel is like a flavor/texture starburst; this one is like a stomp through a swamp. First of all, it looks scary: it’s murky, brown, sewage-like, without enough carbonation to at least lend it a transcendent bit of zest. On the palate an initial inviting citrusy element quickly succumbs to outright bitterness. An earthy, vegetal bitterness that overwhelms. I’ve had quite a few bland/dull tripels - - it’s a tough style to excel in. This one is not bland/dull - - it’s an unbalanced murky mess. Maybe it was on the shelf at the Total Wine in Vegas for a couple years - - I can only hope that’s the problem - - because this borders on undrinkable.

beer-yum (1907) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 20, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2016 Restrained funky aroma in a golden amber pour. Huge malt body belies the style - but is eminently drinkable. Way too strong to enjoy as many as one would want though.

jgb9348 (6519) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Rich muddied brown coloured body with an amber glow and a very thick tan head. Aroma of honey, malt, toffee, caramel and a good deal of oak and vanilla and a ton of alcohol still noticeable. Full-bodied; Flavours of cereal, malt, oak, vanilla, honey, toffee, spices, coriander seed and a lot of alcohol to finish. Aftertaste is rich and very full-bodied with a ton of malt, toffee, caramel and especially alcohol warmth around. Overall, a nice beer that has a LOT to it, especially the texture with alcohol and depth, but this is more of a quad than a tripel, still, nice to try here in Hawaii, but this is a bad place to try this one - especially in the summer. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Manama Market in Haleiwa, O’ahu, Hawaii on 21-August-2016 for US$9,49 sampled in my hotel room here in Waikiki a few hours later on 21-August-2016.

Benzai (16783) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2016
Bottle shared by Joes. Hazy orange color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, sweetness, candy sugar, brown sugar. Meh. Body and carbonation weren’t bad though.
