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 #20 bottle, opened 6/29/07. Poured in a tulip glass, I got no head at all (glass may be dirty). Sweet sugar and honey smell, I’ll even suggest a bit of rose. Pinprick bubbles on the side of the glass, so it’s not totally flat. Deep amber to brown color. Warming alcohol over more honey sweetness. Bit of caramel, too, Wish there was something to balance this sweetness, though. I do get a slight hop bitterness, but not enough to keep me from wondering if this wasn’t a mis-packaged mead. Feel of cooked carrots in the back of my throat. I kind of expected more, too. Guess I need to try another batch. Single-bottle purchase from early 2006.

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

Tap at the brewpub. A: Cloudy purple-red. Thin white head. N: Hibiscus, strawberry, pink peppercorn, cracker, vinous grape, candi sugar, coriander, some pine, esters, and clove. T: Goodly sweet, touch tart, a trace bitter. M: Medium body, no alcohol, tickling carbonation. O: Thrilled they brought this one back. It is one of my new favorites - easy to drink with a snappy fruitiness.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a deep, hazy, maroon color with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, strawberry. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, spicy, pink peppercorn, some yeast, some grass, floral notes, with a spicy, herbal finish. Very interesting take on a tripel. Glad I got to try it.

Tap @ Hair of the Dog... Poured hazy, cranberry red with a thin off-white head. Vibrant mouthfeel, nice level of carbonation. Earthy, mineral-like notes with hibiscus and berry flavored. Mild sweetness and that doesn’t stick around too much. Easy going finish with some esters popping in.

Tried batch 009 on 3.29.14 with Adam and Chris. Thanks guys. Smell is just candy and some herbs. Flavor is caramel, old cardboard, and some fruit. Not bad, overall. Extra points for being so good at so old.
