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.

fiery_1 (1363) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2017
Draught @ the brewery. Pours a hazy copper brown colour with a thin white head. Nose is an interesting mix... I certainly get flowery pepper, but it blends almost like another herb towards a rosemary nature. Flavour is imparting that herbal character with a sweet malty backbone with a Belgian-esque sweet influence.

Draft - Light fruity and caramel notes, cloudy copper with a decent white head, herbal and Berry sweetness with a long fruity herbal finish.

From old tasting notes. Labeled as "Hair of the Dog Golden Rose Belgian Triple Style Ale". Cloudy amber liquid topped by a bubbly beige head. Interesting buttery fruit malt nose. Big intense sour malt flavor has hints of yeast, grapefruit and quinine. Certain different.

Matts_Property (837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Aroma of fresh cherry skin. Flavour is as you would expect - peppercorn and cherry. However, I found it a bit sweet and reminiscent of an American tripel at its core. Decent though.

3.3
mcberko (18068) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2016
On tap at Hair of the Dog, pours a cloudy reddish amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of saison yeast upfront, with subdued peppercorns and a touch of hibiscus. Flavour is very sweet, with lots of hibiscus upfront, followed by light spiciness, and followed by heaps of saison yeast that leave considerable fruity, floral esters. Inauthentic but certainly intriguing and drinkable. Nice one.

Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2016
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.

4.1
Lore (2773) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 21, 2016
Hazy orange colour, minimal off-white head; aroma of unripe peach, maybe pear, too, bready-wheaty notes and some acidic notes; taste is surprisingly sweet with although sourish notes and mild roastedness; very fruity, very biscuity, very strange...and very good

2.9
ansalon (3909) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2016
Pours hazy rosehip with a very low white head. Aromas of thyme, floral notes, spices. Taste is very weird with wheat and spice notes and some floral notes. Mouthfeel is fairly light bodied with medium carbonation.

3.2
kryon (3595) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2016
Pours hazy raspberry rose hip with minimal head Aromas of beets, spices, bread, phenols Taste has notes of beets, spicy herbal bread, honey, phenols
