COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a Belgian Tripel that lives up to its name. Smooth and carefully crafted like a fine velvet painting, but with an 8.5% ABV this bird has some spurs! The beer pours a golden straw color with brilliant clarity. Topped with a lofty pure white head the beer has a wonderful floral nose, with subtle fruit notes. The taste is clean and crisp, with subtle fruit notes and a touch of candy like sweetness. The beer has a Champagne-like effervescent that provides a crisp offset to its sweet finish. While a pint glass is always nice, Velvet Rooster would also be at home in a tulip glass or Champagne flute. Something to crow about.

phaleslu (7419) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Pour from a 16 oz. can at Microfest 2012. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a finger of white head. Sweet and fruity all the way through, with banana, apricot, sweet bready malts, mild spice, grains, straw, and floral notes. Light-bodied, with a bready, fruity mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Decent tripel.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Pint can. Poured a hazy yellow color with a nice two finger head that did retain throughout the beer. Aroma was spices, candies and lots of malts. Flavor was spicy with bubblegum and some mild hops. I found this to be quite enjoyable.

SHIG (3923) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Can: Poured a hazy yellow with a two finger white head. Aroma is citrus fruit. Taste is metallic, fruit, and finish is sweet but very bland with more metal at the back of the palate.

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2012
I really want to like this brewery like everyone in the area seems to... but I just have such a hard time doing it. And this one is no exception. Not terrible, by any means, but not something I would seek out.

vyvvy (4625) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 28, 2012
Pours hazy yellow/orange with a white head. The aroma is quite malty, cotton candy, banana esters, light spice and smooth fruit. Medium/full body thatís husky for the style with sharp carbonation. The flavor starts drier and more astringent that the aroma. There is toasty malt, sulfur, spice and light banana. The finish shows some alcohol coming through. Decent and while it doesnít stand up to the standards of the style the reasonably priced four pack makes it worth the price.

CanIHave4Beers (3557) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 27, 2012
Certain styles are just "not at home" in a can. Itís no big deal or anything, just sort of makes them more awesome when they are served from one.

What a handsome looking beer, a perfect hazy deep yellow with a perfectly big, fluffy, tight, white colored head and great lacing on the glass.

The aroma is grainy with a bit of wet malt, some honey and whole grain toast

The flavor is spicy and whole-grain-bready with some honey sweetness. There is something specific about the flavor of this beer that I canít put my finger on, maybe like Quaker Oats whereby the idea is lots of whole grain with a touch of frosting sweetness for balance. Thatís what this is like.... with some straight up hay....

Man is this interesting beer, itís wild when you taste a beer that fits within a particular style, however tastes basically like nothing youíve ever drank within that style. Hatís off for originality.

deyholla (8028) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2012
On tap at Sugar Maple. Pours a clear orangish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains with underlying light sweet fruit and caramel. Flavor is similar with sweetness from sweet bread, cookie and sweet grains with a bit of backing light fruit.

Tap. Straw yellow with a fizzy white head. Sweet slightly fruity hay and light barnyard aroma and taste with an earthy finish.

hayduke (3697) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 9, 2012
This was courtesy of Strykzone via a trade. Pours a cloudy orange that raised a good size white head and hung in there a while leaving rich lacing. Nose of fruits including raisins cherries, and plums. Medium in body. Good mouthfeel. The taste if very flavorful with bubble gum and floral hops. Some bitterness moves to a light sweet finish, Vert tasty and enjoyable beer.
