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.

A-Pours a hazy pale golden, yellow color with a thick, 2 finger white head that retains very well. Leaves a nice latticework of foam as I sip

S-Dank cheese, wheat, yeast hit the nose. Faint notes of oranges come through in the background

T-Spices come through at the front of the palate. Spiced orange, coriander, and cinnamon. Finishes the same. Very simple taste. Semi-dry finish

MF-Smooth, very smooth. As the name would suggest. Drinkable, but very sticky and smooth. Love the way it feels on the palate

O-A great tripel. And it comes in a can. It's a simple brew, but sometimes simple is just what you need.

served in a pint glass at a bar.

first quality beer I have ever had the privilege of drinking out of a can.

the feel is clean and refreshing. just as the name says, it is velvety smooth, but with a kick. smell some florals, but the taste is what really got me. light fruits that give it a nice candied sweetness, delicious belgian yeast, and some warm spice. this was delicious and will soon become a 4 pack purchase.
