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.

[Batch #35] A very enjoyable Belgian styled triple that pours with an very rich golden hue and a thick frothy white head. Head rises to about 1" before giving way to a mellow surface coat with reasonable lacing on the glass. Brew carries a moderate amount of sediment A little sharp on the taste and aroma but has a very enjoyable and very long aftertaste that carries its hoppy emphasis. The hints of honey malts come through, but don’t get flattened like so many brews that try to blend out the offering with sugary malts. For once, this honey malt helps keep the harshness of the hops off their peak, but blend incredibly well under the bottle conditioned environment making for quite an enjoyable ale.

On tap at the brewery. Murky red/brown. Looks and drinks like a V8. Textured like tomato juice. I’m not a fan of this. At all. Muddy and muddled.

neepsntatties (1763) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2016
On tap at HOTD. Colour...hazy gold with a thin head. Nose...very fruit and lithe with notes of peach, pear and apricot. Palate,..keen and bright with gobs of fruity goodness that give a big nod to the stone fruit industry. The whole of the palate is dry and tight with peach skin and pits and the finish is long and grippingz
