Left Coast Asylum Triple Belgian

Left Coast logoAsylum Triple Belgian (11.8% ABV): This beer pours a clear copper color with a white/tan foam.  Asylum has a yeasty aroma.  The beer is full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated.  Asylum’s flavors start with a raisins and apples (I was a little surprised by the sweetness) followed with a peppery spice.  The beer has a finish of hoppy bitterness and pepper that then ends with a sweet aftertaste.  I enjoyed Asylum; however, the appearance/flavor profile struck me as resembling some Belgian Quads (like Straffe Hendrik Quad) instead of a Triple.
