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.

Awesome artwork on this can! Orange color, light whitish head. Spices, banana, clove, coriander, yeast, candy sugar aroma. Flavor is sweet up front with a nice hit of spices, yeast, some herbal notes. Pretty nice stuff!

From can, pours orange yellow with faint white head. Feels thick on the tongue, with flavors of spices and cloves with yeasty bread and bananas. Has lots of mouth feel, I really enjoy this beer. I figured Id try a lower end Trippel before moving on to the top rated ones.

Yellow-gold, white head. Fruit and yeast on the nose. Taste: Very floral and fruity. Green apple, honey, sweet corn, and yeast. Fairly creamy and drinkable. A little too sweet but otherwise pretty good.

16oz can poured into a small Corsendonk goblet. I think this is a damn good tripel... or more like a golden Belgian strong. Sure it may be a little sweet but its well done. Aroma has Belgian airiness with some sweet esters (only mild to moderate) and a slightly herbal aspect (not sure from where) to balance it out. Flavor is same, light banana esters in a thick coating of Belgian malts. Again, a faint herbal character and a moderate bitterness to balance it out. Thicker mouthfeel goes in line with the structure of the beer. I think it is well made, not a tripel but Belgian, not overly sweet, drinkable, and the best damn Tripel in a can.

phaleslu (9922) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Pour from a 16 oz. can at Microfest 2012. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a finger of white head. Sweet and fruity all the way through, with banana, apricot, sweet bready malts, mild spice, grains, straw, and floral notes. Light-bodied, with a bready, fruity mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Decent tripel.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Pint can. Poured a hazy yellow color with a nice two finger head that did retain throughout the beer. Aroma was spices, candies and lots of malts. Flavor was spicy with bubblegum and some mild hops. I found this to be quite enjoyable.

SHIG (4952) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Can: Poured a hazy yellow with a two finger white head. Aroma is citrus fruit. Taste is metallic, fruit, and finish is sweet but very bland with more metal at the back of the palate.

I really want to like this brewery like everyone in the area seems to... but I just have such a hard time doing it. And this one is no exception. Not terrible, by any means, but not something I would seek out.

vyvvy (6309) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 28, 2012
Pours hazy yellow/orange with a white head. The aroma is quite malty, cotton candy, banana esters, light spice and smooth fruit. Medium/full body thats husky for the style with sharp carbonation. The flavor starts drier and more astringent that the aroma. There is toasty malt, sulfur, spice and light banana. The finish shows some alcohol coming through. Decent and while it doesnt stand up to the standards of the style the reasonably priced four pack makes it worth the price.
