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.

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.

BOSSbrewer (1493) - Arkansas, USA - NOV 9, 2013
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.

IndianaRed (2330) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 3, 2013
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.

Dogbrick (7659) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2013
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.

Golden yellow color, like straw. Malty and yeasty aroma, and a nice head. Smooth and creamy, with a very slight bitterness on the finish

Can. Pours a golden yellow color with a beautiful white cloudy foamy head. Nose is yeasty and spicy. Taste is yeasty, and spicy as well, with strong banana and cloves. Very tasty and delicious. Finish is dry, and ends with some fruity sweetness. Quaff Score 8 / 10

Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head and aroma of yeast and spices. Taste is of strong spice up front, with yeast, dried fruits, bananna, and cloves leading to a spicy, long finish. Nice Belgain, very drinkable
