The Brü Revü – Left Coast Asylum Belgian-Style Tripel Ale
Left Coast Beers are now available in Texas, at least in Austin. I was lucky enough to go to Oggi’s Pizza while in San Diego and sample a few of their beers, The Black Magic Stout and an IPA, both of which were fantastic. When I saw the Left Coast beers at the store I had to pick one up, and of course I landed on the Asylum Tripel. 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. It’s great to see another great craft brewery available in Texas!
