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 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
