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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Light golden hued with great clarity. A quarter inch of off white foam rests on top and there is light Brussels lacing. I smell faint light malt and Belgian candy sugar. There's a sweetness of light malt and Belgian candy sugar in the flavor. The mouth is moderately carbonated and dry. The sweetness in the flavor is slightly cloying.

Serving type: can

3.64/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Slightly hazy golden color with a decent white head that doesn't stay around long but does leave a bit of lacing.

The aroma is light malt, biscuits, yeast, hints of apple and cloves.

The taste is similar, yeast, biscuits, slight fruitiness with a spicy , somewhat floral finish. A little different than a Belgian tripel, but that's not necessarily bad.

Medium bodied, very smooth and easily drinkable, alcohol content is barely noticeable.

Altogether it is enjoyable and worth a try, probably the best tripel from Kansas, at least.

I have to give this one a few points for can graphics.
