Notes/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.

This has got to be the first beer from tallgrass that I genuinely don't enjoy.

From the can into an IPA glass. Big head, takes two minutes or so to fade leaving a bit of lacing, not much.

A- Beautiful light orange color...looks inviting.

S- Wet, musty aroma...kinda like it.

T- Get a little clove and funky barnyard mustiness...similar to the nose.

M- Very soft and pleasant.

O- Probably not a great Triple but I like it. Easy drinking and pleasant....nothing offensive at all. Like the Brewery description says...I'd like to do it next time from a Champagne flute.
