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.

Cloudy golden orange. Medium to large fluffy white head, mostly dissipating. Aroma is sweet, yeast, lots of spices, fruity, citrus, tropical. Medium body. Syrupy. Sweet, moderate bitterness, some boozeyness. Somewhat earthy bitter in the long finish. A good enough beer but the standard its up against is very high. Provided a nice ’kick’ on a warm summer day at the beach.

Another amazing beer from Tallgrass. I want to meet the guy who mastered this chemistry of taste and intoxication. When to to the liquor store and see the tallgrass mix pack has the rooster as its featured beer, I will always pick it up. I am usually a bitter fan but the citrus. assault combined with the unapologetic high alcohol yeast in the Rooster is just enough to leave you in a wonderful state of waiting for the next Velvet Rooster.

A great shot at a Belgian triple in a can. I might have had an old can, it didn’t taste quite right, had a little bit of the bubble gum flavor on the palate. I have liked other samplings from Tallgrass, if you like there other beers you should give this one a shot, more than likely I got a bad can. CHEERS!

HonkeyBra (3249) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2013
16 oz. can. Pours a bright golden color with a big, fluffy white head. Aroma of belgain candy, floral notes, apricot and peaches. Flavor is sweet, balanced by some citrus and floral bitters. Nice, belgian esters. Effervescent mouthfeel, crisp finish. Pretty good for a tripel.

tmoreau (2288) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Shared 16 oz. can poured to snifters with a cloudy, light orangy amber color, a modest layer of soft white head foam that diminished quickly to a ring & film, and spotty lacing. The aroma was yeasty funk with a hint of meaty scent to it, floral and fruity notes. The flavor was sweet, effervescent, with some alcohol warmth, and hop character that was earthy, herbal, and hempy. Tough to finish! A somewhat heavy handed brew, and not a typical bright, spicy, warm, but refreshing Tripel.
