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.

Crisp flavorful belgian pale ale. Some citrus in aroma and flavor. Gold pour with moderate carbonation.

16 oz. can from a trade. (Thanks Tripplebrew) Used my Allagash chalice. Unfiltered gold color with plenty of soapy head from a slow, canted pour. Rings of lace as the glass emptied. Average carbonation. The aroma has Belgian yeast along with spicy kick. Flavor profile is mostly sweet, with a mild fruity flavor I didn’t notice in the smell. The finish shows that peppery, spicy kick I got from the aroma. Body is on the light side of medium. Mouthfeel is effervescent. Real drinkable for 8.5%. Really not excited about this. But not bad in anyway. Maybe better on draft?

Nice honey and barnyard, sweet and dark with some banana and spice. Good beer if un-tripel like.

5/12/12 can. golden yellow. big white head. a+f are peachy, floral, spice, dried apricots and way too much sugar to be an enjoyable tripel. sweet and hard to drink.

16oz can from Shig, thanks man. Hazy golden yellow with a medium white head and some nice lacing. Aroma of spicy yeast esters, sugar and toasty malt. Flavor is sweet malt and sugar with some alcohol heat and a zesty finish. Medium body with a soft mouth feel. Really nice beer, a tad sweet but overall very enjoyable.

Pours a nice golden color just like you would expect from a tripel. Aroma is not very notable and hard to pick up on. Flavor is nice and spicy and the palate is enjoyable.

Very interesting beer. It tasted nothing like a typical tripel but it was engaging and alright.

Total Wine Fairfax: Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma is banana, coriander, spice, and a good amount of hops for a tripel. Taste is pretty strong for a tripel. This is not as easy drinking as some, but it is still pretty easy drinking. It has a dry and slightly bitter finish, moderate sweetness, and a reasonable complexity of flavor. I’m glad I brought this with me to a music festival.

Can. Hazy golden yellow color, thick white head, solid lacing. Arona of tropical fruit and pineapple (or is that redundant?). Taste is bitter pineapple and citrus. Not bad.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 Aroma is yeast, spice, and malt. Pours a hazy golden orange with a nice two finger head. Taste is sweet and bready with yeast and fruit. Very good.
