corkyrory66 (707) - BELGIUM - APR 24, 2014
Bière extrêmement vive à l’ouverture malgré toutes les précautions de manutention... La mousse déborde de partout... Niveau abv de 8,7 % et IBU de 35, avec la levure Morpheus. Couleur tendance abricot. Apparence avec un gros voile de levure, et pour cause … Mousse très épaisse, à gros flocons en bas et cratères magnifiques en haut. Arômes : amertume de type Orval, fruits blancs, aubépine, babeurre. 1ère bouche très souple sur une très belle amertume, et un fond de malt clair. Arrière-bouche longue et très belle. 2ème sur le style Orval en plein, avec des fruits blancs, abricot confit. Anorrière-bouche toujours longue et très bien formée, complexe. La longueur attaque sur ce côté Orval, poursuit dans un champ de fleurs blanches, et accompagne le tout d’une coupe de fruits. L’alcool développe magnifiquement toutes ces saveurs. Nous sommes à 8,7 % abv, et cela se constate... La levure est très spécifique et pour cause, elle a reçu un nom de baptême du brasseur. (Entre nous soit dit, ceci devrait inspirer certains brasseurs pour le faire aussi, et créer ainsi des lignes nominatives de levure. Ce serait pas mal sympa, ou du moins personnalisé). La finale est ample et complexe. CONCLUSION : l’Orval est à 6,2 % et la Morpheus triple à 8,7 % . On a gagné 2,5 points, non pas sur son permis, mais au compteur gustatif... Superbe bière qui me permet enfin d’ attribuer une grande cote à cette brasserie qui fait tous les efforts pour cela. Mais comme toujours, il faut touver « chaussure à son pied ». Donc avis à tous les grands amateurs d’Orval : lancez-vous sur la Morpheus triple...

Travlr (13428) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 15, 2010
330 ml bottle at the Molenhof in Oostvleteren. Golden color, large fluffy white head, great lacing. Aroma of black pepper, straw, grass, caramel. Taste is very malty, but also has plenty of hoppy bitterness, peppery flavors, and a very slightly sweet edge. One of the best tripels I have had, certainly a textbook example of the style.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - JUN 24, 2012
From the bottle. Purchased at Pivni Rozmanitost by by wife. Very hazy, deep orange colour (resembles a very cloudy apple juice - but in a good way!). White head disappears very quickly, leaving a very gentle carbonation bringing pleasant little bubbles to the top. Smells of apple and apple skin, spices and a touch of caramel. Taste has lots of apples, fruitiness from the yeast and some spice I can’t put my finger on. It’s a complex and very interesting (and rather untypical) tripel. Very good.

shoulderbroken (2202) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle at Fiere Margriet. Gusher I reckon. Looks lively when it arrived. Orange colour, and massive off white thick rocky head. Aroma is really herbal, sweet, pineapple, bit creamy. Taste is full on, fruity and lots of herbs again. Sweet but without the usual tripel kick. Delicate even. Head stays all the way down. Extra palate points for hiding the booze.

Swaroga (1469) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours a dark orange/amber with small dirty head. The liquid is hazy and has lots of tiny bits in it. Nose : striking aroma of banana and caramel. Brow sugar. Cheese notes. Sip : Decent carbonation and low to medium density. Sweet beer with ester punch. The alcohol is warming. The bitterness is covered but present and fine. Nice thing about this beer is that on it’s label they say what ingredients they used : 4 types of malt, Magnum and E.K Goldings, home cultivated yeast and some crystal sugar. They also add the numbers : 19ebc and it has 35ebu. Interesting.

Gerbeer (2003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours gold with huge head. Aromas of yeast and fresh bananas. Fruity creamy flavours of oranges and mango with expected yeast and bananas/toasted malts. Nice though pricey.

thewolf (11259) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Alvinne Beershop.
Pours a bit hazy golden with a big, frothy, white head. Aroma has lovely sweetness, malty, some green apples, grassy and peachy hops, estery, fresh. Light coriander and peppery spiciness. High, prickly carbonation, dry and light oily palate. Flavour is dry, fairly bitter, lots of esters, pineapple, green apple zest. Vinious and fairly complex spicy finish with a slight piney and peachy hops bite. Long, lingering dryness and fairly bitter. Lovely tripel.

Trappist1 (575) - Diest, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2014
Wow, what a gusher. Lost up to two third of a 330ml bottle. Color orange marmalade golden with a orange head. Nose: yeast, Malts, aromatic, bit of a fruity touch. Something stale in the back. Taste:funky wild yeast, fruity, hops, overall very complex. Alcohol gives you a little deserved kick. Definitely not the one to fall asleep with. good carbonation, bitter and very long lasting finish. Very nice beer.
