3.38/5 rDev -10.1%
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.

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.

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.
