Hello, was introduced to Velvet Rooster within the last month or so, what a pleasant surprise! I see myself keeping a four pack cold and ready for consumption when the time is right. If you are a Belgian Wheat fan, you will love the taste of this beer. I rate this Tallgrass product a must try, underline, exclamation point. You will not be disappointed. If I were asked to make a recommendation to someone new to craft brew products, Velvet Rooster would definitely be in my top three. After I tasted this porduct based upon the recommendation of a friend, his credability was firmly established with me. He knew what he was talking about. I'm confident that once you try this beer, you too will become a fan of the rich, full taste of this superb product.

I love this. On tap at Coopers Tavern Madison. A beautiful hazy peach color in a tulip glass. An inch of white foam that dissipates quickly but leaves ornate lacing stuck permanently to the glass.
The aroma is overly polite, seeming to hold back certain depths of fruit and grass and fresh-baked dinner roll. The flavor in the mouth is plenty up-front showing the way to a wonderland of hop brightness tempered by sweet malt and expanded by a diaphanous barnyard funk.

The CANQuest (TM) seems to be getting back on track, slowly but surely. I have built up a nice stash of CANs in the past month and with a break from school coming up, I am looking to make some Crack & Glug happen.
From the CAN: "Belgian-style Tripel Ale" plus a really psychedelic-looking rooster. Remind me not to drop a tab around this CAN ...
The Crack & Glug proved that I am slightly out of touch as I got some overflow as the big, thick, eggnog-colored head roared up from the bottom of the glass and over the rim of my glass. Its retention was actually becoming a problem as it seemed to refuse to drop, hindering me from pouring what still remained in the CAN. Color was a slightly-hazy deep golden-yellow. Nose had a papery mustiness, undoubtedly yeast-driven, like newspapers out of the attic or basement. Wow! I was really anxious for the first sip once the head got under control. Mouthfeel was quite full, very viscous as I rolled it around on my tongue, taking in the melding of flavors that included tropical fruit (think mango, banana, coconut) and cracked black pepper as well as an underlying mustiness. To say that the finish was dry would be to mark me as uttering the understatement of the year. The zephyr winds of the Sahara Desert blew through the back of my throat on the finish. Dry? Arid! Zounds. The spiciness just lingered in my mouth and I marveled that this had come out of a CAN. A KANsas CAN, no less. I would absolutely have some of this in the cooler on Hula in the Coola Day (01 February, annually) but it might be a bit much for the beach.

Pillowy white head sits atop a regal gold body of nectoar. Lacing is very full. Aroma is bready and lemony. A little spice and hay. Flavor is a little sourdough, some lemongrass, cakey yeastiness, pepper.... Really nice. I expect nothing less from this fine brewery. Highly drinkable and flavorful. Light medium body with a soft feel to it and alcohol presence is barely detectable. A winner.

nice big head out of a cold can small yeast bubbles and smooth whiteness. golden color body. a nice looking tripel indeed.
smell a bit Americanized but still decent and hoppy not overly bitter but spicy flowery
taste semi-sweet malty with hop spice that lingers long time on tongue a bit more exciting than belgiums but not as rich since yeast takes a back seat
very dry and nice carbonation a great beer no sense of alcohol easy to love hard to hate
