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.
