4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a delightfully odd beer. The name and the artwork on the can are willfully eccentric. The sparkling appearance is lovely but also has a different yellow shade that is slightly unusual for the style. The hops create a fruity sensation that is pleasant and also a bit strange. The taste is pretty consistent with the Belgian Tripel style. Velvet Rooster is weird wonder.

Pours golden from the can. Fruity aroma. Bitter taste with fruit esters; bitterness is more than I expected for this style.

Can at 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours an opaque blonde with a white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, banana and other tropical fruits. Taste is very malty, lots of honey and barley. Full bodied, moderate carbonation.

From can. Pours a dense copper with a bit of off-white head that dissipates save for a few pockets. Nose is dominated by yeast, giving it a bubblegum aroma. A definite champagne-like crispness. Taste is bubblegum with some spice. Slightly acrid finish. An interesting take on the Tripel, itís better overall than itís individual parts.

Decided to rock the rooster on a Tuesday night, somewhat enamored with the idea of pouring a tripel from a pounder can... It fades. Pale orange color with a fizzy beige head. Lingering swirls. Nose is dry and dusty. Straw, florals, and yeast. Consistent with the flavor profile. Lots of barnyard and esters, not much fruit. Not much spice either. Grainy and malty. Crisp. Different than I expected, but enjoyable.

On tap at Gengis Khan in Kansas City. Pours a hazy golden. Lots of bready spicy yeast on the nose. Nice foamy head. Lots of fruity floral flavors up front. Very sweet. Out of style foe a tripel but enjoyable.

Pint can, poured a straw color with a white head. Yeast right from the get go, long spicy finish. Not as smooth as I expected for a Belgian trippel.

16oz can Thanks Jake65 Hazy golden with a full white dense head. Classic fruity spicy aroma. Some banana and bubblegum in the flavor along with typical peppery Belgian spice. Mild overall and drinkable for a trip.

Sample at Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar. Bright golden pour with a medium thick white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of earthy yeast, ripe fruit and mild floral hops. The finish is bready malt and yeast. Decent overall.
