COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rose is named for Portland, Oregon, the Rose City. Originally called Golden Rose, this Beer started life as a straight forward Belgian Tripel and evolved into a Beer made with beets, hibiscus flowers and pink peppercorns. She has always been inspired by the Belgian style known as Tripel, which has a low level hops and is deceivingly light in body for its alcohol strength. This is achieved through the use of imported Belgian candi sugar. Not Brewed since 2005.

Picked up from the cellar of Bottleworks. I guess I’m the only one drinking mine, everyone else is trying to trade it lol. Batch 34. Pours a barleywine copper with a minimal head and quite a bit of yeast sediment. Smell is huge caramel and toffee, slight bit of alcohol and creme brule. Taste is creamy and sweet, sugar, caramel, a bit of fruit and Belgium yeast. A bit bready on the finish. Fantastic, I don’t think it’s past prime at all.

355ml bottle @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen

Batch 41 - Pours murky reddish brown with a tiny bubbly head. Aroma of ripe fruits, malts and cellar notes. Taste is malty and yeasty with tart ripe fruits and slight sourness. Next to no carbonation, fruity and berry finish. A bit unbalanced, perhaps has seen its best days.

Pours clear amber color with no head. Aroma of ripe fruits, sour berries, nettle, rose hip and barnyard notes. Flavour of ripe fruits, sour berries, herbs, mild caramel and rose hip. Obviously has seen better days.

laiti (5856) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2012
35,5 cl bottle @ Ølbaren, batch #41
Aroma is slightly sweet with caramel, some rosehip and moldy potato cellar. Flavour is rather weird with moldy cellar aromas, some tart red wine and hints of vinegar. Far from a tripel and definitely past its prime.

lusikka (6425) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2012
355 ml bottle @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen. Batch 41.
Pours an amber colour without a head. Aroma of sweet raspberries, mandarin orange and some yeast. Flavour of sweet raspberries, dough, wood and some malts. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a watery, slightly fruity finish with some alcohol. Has clearly seen it’s best days already.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2012
bottle, batch 2 when it was called golden rose, from 96 I believe... a bit oxidized as you would think but really easy to drink with some great honey notes, alcohol well hidden... I’d track down one of the 2000 batches for sure!

12 ounce bottle batch 41 thanks to Jacob. Pours a murky caramel color with a medium white head that quickly dissipates. An interesting nose of sweet candied beets (I mean, this is something I’d never put a finger on it till it was mentioned but now I can’t help notice it) and some tartness. The flavor is a very odd medicinal/herbal mix alongside both tart flavors and more traditional sweet sugary Tripel flavors. Some oxidation. Interesting.
