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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Lore (2671) - 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

ansalon (3802) - 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.

neepsntatties (1975) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2016
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
