COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A new spring seasonal that is a Belgian-style ale with notes of fruit and spice and a little citrusy bite from a generous addition of rose hips in the kettle.

Pleasant beer. Bright-gold hue; quickly fading head. Soft and fluffy texture. Cakey and doughy malt flavors; faint earthiness. Gentle aromas of herbs, perfumes and flowers. Banana and bubblegum in the back. Light, peppery bitterness.

Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy amber gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is pretty floral. Med minus body. Flavor is hard to describe. Itís floral. I get some rose. Itís also Belgian yeast/spice. Wasnít getting banana ester, but now I do. Iím beginning to think one could find anything in this. Iím beginning to think the rose wasnít. Not so flavorful as an earthy Belgian, but very tasty in a rather light way. Finishing sort of citrously bitter. Good ale.

Banana-like and floral aroma. Nice yeast character in flavor; spicy, fruity. Light caramel and biscuit--enough to give it some balance. Finishes sweeter... A little too much, probably.

Gription79 (2157) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden amber. Restricted Belgian yeast character is the first thing I notice. Sweet malts, grainy, spicy. This whole beer is subtle. There is some astringency/tannins possibly from the rose hops. This is a standard Pyramid brewed beer. Meh.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle. Golden colour with thick lasting white head. Aroma is caramel and fruit. Flavour has a little spice, a little citrus and some malt. Rather weak and bland finish

Brand new Belgian Style Ale with Rose Hips added in the batch. I think Rose Hips are a sleep aid. Hmmm, maybe I should not be drinking this one so early on.

This stuffís pretty good. Purchased at the Red Apple in Eugene Oregon in a 22oz bottle for $1.99. For the price this is a steal because itís comparable to some of the other American Belgian style ales and in some aspects exceeds many of them in taste. The rose hip flavor might throw a few people off but itís actually quite pleasant. Tastes of banana bread and sour apple. Great price to value ratio.

Reid (1804) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 The old Portland Brewing moniker has been revived! 22oz bottle from Rothís Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $2.79 Pours a dark golden with a rosy tint especially in the generous head. Estery ,spicy,banana wheat aromas,slight semi-vegetal fruitiness if that makes any sense! Taste is semi dry with definate rose hip tones ( used to eat rose hip skins back in Scotland as a kid),vegetal,slight black peppercorn, then a slight plum taste. Altogether quite complex yet light. Nice palate for the style..its light enough to aid drinkability. I liked this one quite a bit..but the rose hip tastes might be off putting to some.
