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.

12 fl. oz bottle, batch #41, purchased at ØlKonsortiet, Aalborg. A low fine-bubbled beige head, upon a near-clear brownish amber body. Nice and unusual smell of fresh herbs, flowers, perfume and berries. Also a scent of biscuits and sweet roasted nuts. Taste is less complex. But good, indeed. On the sweet side, both fruity and malty. Notes of herbs, pepper and marzipan. Mild, gentle bitterness. Surprisingly light in body. Slick in the mouth. A certain alcohol warmth in the ending. Overall a very nice interpretation of a Belgian Tripel

Bottle. Batch 41. Rusty copper color with a shy head that doesn’t linger for very long. Very good-looking, actually; much like a dark brandy or cognac. Aroma has a nice sweetness to it with a lot of burnt caramel and sugar, while also being very fruity with a fresh, berry-like character. It is quite old, and as such has a slightly oxidized sourness as well. It also has lots of spices, and some leather. Quite complex and difficult to decode. Taste is really smooth with the promised burnt caramel/burnt sugar sweetness, and a slight sourness as well. Very fruity, but not as thick as one might imagine. Thusly, it remains quite fresh and easily drinkable. Some yeasty stuff goes through as well, adding to the subtle sourness. Very nice balance.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - FEB 20, 2011
Batch 41. Pours rusty copper with a head that lasts for 5 secs, and then no head at all. Aroma is really different. Leather, sour berries (can’t tell which), quite some oxidation, melted dark sugar and caramel, a hint of cardboard. Taste is less complex than the aroma. Hay and caramel, peppers, some yeasty notes with robust belgian yeast sweetness and and interesting sourness in the back of the mouth. Definitely one of the better tripels I’ve had.

HenrikSoegaard (12847) - Randers, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2010
Bottle. Frothy fair mostly deminishing head. Nice amber colour. Moderate malty and light hoppy spicey aroma. Moderate bitter very strange flavor. No way its a trippel, perhaps a S/H/V? Average light bitter hibiscus finish. Oily palate. Rubbish.

Hansen (8292) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2010
Brown color with a red note. Hazy. Almost no head. Odd aroma, think its the hibiscus, gives some sharp notes. Perhaps chocolate too. Sweet flavor, some acidic too. Moderate bitter finish. Dry texture.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle from batch 41 in 2005. Pours a amber color with reddish notes, along with a small white head, thats actually more of a lace. Aroma is of berries, an earthiness, caramel, flowers and a woody note, even though it hasn’t been barrel aged. Flavor is of faint berries, a peppery spice, caramel, dusty old wood, earthiness and some flowers. Not much yeast really as in your ussual tripel. Body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall a good tripel, especially considering the age. This is one of the most unique tripels i have ever had, that has some characteristics of the tradtional belgian tripel, but is still quite experimental. Its either a beer you like or dislike, i like it!

Pours like unfiltered peach juice. Nose smells like asparagus laced piss. Tastes like rose hips, cardboard and flowers that have been stomped into the dirt. Painful to drink, but still interesting. Liked the cassis more.
