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 effervescence 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.
Since 2007, Tallgrass Brewing Co. has been crafting award-winning ales at the edge of the Flint Hills in Manhattan, Kansas. In addition to the quality of their beer, they’re known for their packaging, sense of humor, and an adventurous, experimental spirit that’s true to their homebrewing roots. Tallgrass chose Northern Brewer to help bring their recipes to homebrewers everywhere through our Pro Series line of beer kits - cheers!
A note on yeast: Tallgrass uses White Labs WLP530 Abbey Ale; with Tallgrass' blessing, we suggest Wyeast 3787 as the default option so customers (especially mail order customers) can more easily evaluate viability before brewing.
We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts, but it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.
Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.
