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.

Poured from 16 oz can into tulip glass. Dated to enjoy by 11/04/2014.

A: Pours a light straw yellow with 2-3 finger fluffy off white head that seemed to last forever. Heavy sticky lacing,

S: Belgian yeast esters and a slight grassy funk. Banana and bubblegum. Rose petals and a bit of clove and pepper.

T: Ripe banana and biscuits. Belgian candy sugar. Some familiar flavors of a typical tripel, but not a strictly traditional one. Tends almost a little sweet.

M: Full bodied but with a champagne like carbonation. Fairly crisp finish that helps to offset the sweetness a bit.

O: Very drinkable and enjoyable brew. Maybe not a classic Belgian trippel, but a very good American version. Will have to grab a few more of these next time I'm through the midwest.
