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.

From Oct 2005 Bottle listed as Batch 32 Poured into glass with very little foam that disappeared completely after about a minute. The colour is really nice gold-copper and the smell, well, it kind of reminds me of the Sam Adams Triple Bock I had years ago. The taste is a bit of a quagmire...a few things going on but not in a harmonious way. There's a tartness present that I don't find that appealing and the alcohol taste is definitely there. Is this really in the trippel style?? Well....I can say that I've tried it.

More of a belgian ale, but clearly american-made take on the style. Pretty good, but not their best beer by any means. Hair of the dog portland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
