From my tasting notes: This was a great Tripel that kicked everything off with the signature Belgian yeast aroma and substantial off-white head. The Asylum was a big impressive Tripel with hints of sweet candi sugar, malt, and even a bit of vanilla. It was a bit on the sweet side, but I was really enjoying this one and it went down fast and smooth.

A: cloudy orange-amber, no appreciable head in a snifter, glass is too small to really show lacing but in a larger glass it would probably be a fine lattice
S: sweet, candy, bread
T: candy, sugar, herbs, malt, the 11% alcohol pokes through with some astringency
M: light, syrupy
O: one really has to be looking for an astringent spiced candy. I found it too sweet, bordering on cloying, and heavy-handed.

This was simply a great beer. The flavor was smooth, and sort of sweet. The sweetness was not over powering. There was a light malt flavor.

The pour left a small head, that did not hold very long. Surprisingly this brew did not allow the strong alcohol level overpower the flavor.

I am new to Triples, and this was a good entry in my book.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a St. Bernardus goblet.

Appearance: Pours a hazy copper golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of off white head that quickly fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: A yeasty, sweet, and bready Belgian style aroma with hints of fruit and sugar. Upfront Belgian yeast with hints of funk, pepper, and clove. Sweet hints of candied sugars. Bready malt with hints of biscuit, grains, wheat, caramel, straw, and cracker. Fruit hints of orange peel, banana, apple, white grape, pineapple, and peach. Some honey like sweet hints as well. Subtle hops. Scent of alcohol comes through. A decent aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a sweet and yeasty Belgian style taste with notes of bread, fruits, and sugar. Belgian style yeast along with notes of funk, peppers, and clove. Big sweet taste of candied sugar and a little note of honey. Bready malt profile with notes of grains, biscuit, caramel, wheat, cracker, and straw. Fruity notes of banana, orange, apple, grapes, pineapple, and peach. Some alcohol taste comes through. Hops are very subtle. A decent Belgian inspired taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Somewhat chewy, slick, and syrupy. Alcohol is felt but things are still fairly smooth overall.

Overall: A decent take on the Tripel style. Sweeter and more bready than typical for the style but it tastes nice.
