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.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2003 Ah another Dog for an Old Dawg, Its nice also to have a source for Hair Of The Dog that is local. The beer pours a refulgent orange, and is a tad hazy to boot. Head is modest in size, frothy in texture, and off white in color and as it evanesces quickly, the lace is suspect. Large malt nose, citrus crisp and clean, a respectable sniff with the start a bit sweet, lots of malt and the top middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is strikingly acidic, hops are perky in their spiciness and the aftertaste dry and lingering, a fine drinkable brew tis true.

The bottle says 6% alcohol by weight, which, I guess, is 7.5% abv. Dunno. Drinkable, yet with enough flavor and spice that its clear youre drinking something out-of-the-ordinary. Huge, rocky head that lingers well after the last drop has passed your lips. A slight metallic sharpness is noticeable. Odd.

What am I doing? Ive been performing a classic male behavior - trying to wait out a heat wave w/o resorting to air conditioning, and the past 2 days I drink Kasteel Biere du Chateau, and now this? The label says Belgian Tripel Style Ale. I would call it more of an Abbey Dubbel myself. Earthy, almost dirty aroma w. chocolate in the background. Chunks of sediment came out of the bottle before I saw it - sits on the bottom like turds. Cloudy reddish-brown color. Flavor is good - raisins, chocolate, some maltiness, anise, honey. Finishes sweet-tart though the beer is predominantly sweet, throughout. Batch #29. I drank it too fast, didnt let it warm much from fridge. Quality brew, though I prefer my yeast sediment to be granules not turds - have to avoid gulping them down...oh well.

I really enjoyed this brew. Great head, cloudy, light carbonation and great flavors.

Bottle from batch 28. Dark ruby color and complex and sweet flavor. The aroma fills your nose when you tip the glass back. I grew slighly less interested in the beer as I drank more of it, but the first few sips were fantastic.

Batch #20. Sweet, and robust. Dark color. A fruit, dry finish.

Thats funny, its just plain old Rose on my bottle, not Golden Rose, but its a Belgian Triple and the HoTD web site refers to it as Rose, so thats good enough for me. Gorgeous appearance, the head is huge and sloshes around nicely as you pour. Floral and tart aroma. The taste kind of reminds me of a homebrew that a buddy and I made of a Belgian Triple, except we added more sugar and hopped the shit out of ours, whereas this is better balanced (ours was like 12% alcohol).

More of a cross between a triple and a golden ale. Decent floral hop aroma. Flavors of apricots, light candi and honey. Finish is slightly tart and sweet.

Downgraded following a recent re-sample, this lacked the smooth floweriness I used to find - still decent but no more a classic.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2006 Batch 38. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is murky orange, dense particles of all sizes, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie, bread), lightly hoppy (herbs), moderately yeasty (dough), with a note of alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. One of my consistently least favorite HotD beers...I dont think Ive ever had a Rose I liked, fresh or aged.
