On-tap at Bernie's in Waukesha, WI pours a mostly clear amber color with a fluffy beige head. The aroma is mild with yeasty banana. The taste is light and smooth, no big bold yeast and carbonation here. Smooth and delicious like everything from Tall Grass.

A: Shining golden-orange, barely-off white silky foam head that can get quite sizeable, leaving little lacing. Pretty cloudy, no carbonation visible. Artwork is vibrant, original, and inspired- the best looking rooster I've ever seen. I want this as a t-shirt.
S: A lot of yeast and even dusty wheat, but underneath it is that wonderful tropical fruit aroma I was looking for. It's a subtle, even deceiving, nose, but really enjoyable once you realize what it holds.
T: A little chalkiness subdues the flavors I came here for, but they are there: exotic fruits, plentiful yeastiness, and a touch of spice. It is a little dirty, but is still really enjoyable, and unique. Good, lasting finish.
M: Dry, but perfect drinkability- medium bodied, refreshing, stout and prickly carbonation- lotta burps, which I like.
O: Great base materials are somewhat hidden by missteps, but it is still appreciable as a great Belgian-style tripel from Kansas, of all places. Highly refreshing, original, and wonderfully hides the high ABV. The prominent yeastiness is good in the nose but murks the palate somewhat, but not enough to dissuade me from buying a tall fourpack of this handsome rooster again.

First of all, Tallgrass sure has a way of making the graphics on their cans look amazing, this one is about as good as it can get!
As for the beer part of this review, it definitely does fill the description you see on their website, it's champagne-like, and you can taste a little bit of alcohol in this one, but not overpowering. Has some Saison features, which I personally like, but not everyone else may feel the same, almost as if this is a part french beer, instead of just Belgian Tripel. Some citrus, sweet candy notes, along with the overall champagne, quite unique... not amazing, but very good! This beer's alcohol content makes you feel really good and relaxed, unlike a Maiboch which gives you a headache.
