Foamy head, disintegrated and left a soapy residue which was appealing. I liked the allspicey, clovey banana flavor of the rooster; the alcohol presence was sharp and strong. Much much much better on tap than out of the can. It was stiflingly sweet and syrupy in can.

Can. Hazy golden color. Creamy body. Nose is nice spice and coriander. Some clove and citrus in the flavor. Nice Tripel.

c/o UncleMike. Thanks again!
Aroma - combination of a pleasant cereal, barnyard Belgian yeast quality, and floral notes.
Appearance - golden body color; clear liquid, with nice nucleation; 3/4" white head that dissipates into a layer of foam.
Taste - sweet, with a nice champagne like quality; subtle fruit notes and nice classic Belgian yeast quality
Palate - body is light to medium; texture is velvety; the carbonation is fizzy; the finish is crisp and has a nice dryness about it.

Sweet and sugar with orange peel. Provably some corriander. Dry with a short .mouth feel.

Poured out a hazy, golden color with a two-finger, off-white head of bubbly foam. It left sticky patches of lace on the glass.
It smelled estery fruitiness and yeast. Nice aroma of grains and light caramel, too.
Nice blend of spicy with a tasty fruitiness of apple and pear. Good grain flavor with a yeasty bite. Spicy with floral bitterness. The beer was good right out of the fridge, but after warming a bit, it really started to shine. Key: let it breathe a little before enjoying.
It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.
This is a very good tripel. The floral finish sets it apart in the style.

Can. Really bold, unique flavor. I’m not that familiar with tripels, but I really enjoyed this beer. Although it’s a can, the experience is quite good.

This beer is surprisingly smooth and easy drinking considering that it is 8.5%. The only criticism I have is that it should come in a 6 pack of tall boys instead of 4. Cans is a plus!

I had this at Flying Saucer. Pours clear gold with a white head. Taste crisp, light fruit, lightly sweet. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

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.
