Pours a golden amber with one finger thin off white head. Smells fruity like bananas, clove, bready yeast. Tastes of fruity bananas, dough a little bitterness and some citrusy notes. Palate thin but smooth feeling. its alright

Deep gold, clear, off-white head. Aroma is floral, fruity, with slight spice. Flavor of pilsner malt, moderate spicy phenols, and more floral/perfumy notes with a little citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle. Fairly weak and bland on first taste. Opened up nicely, though, with banana, light floral notes, and slight yeasty finish.

Pleasant beer. Bright-gold hue; quickly fading head. Soft and fluffy texture. Cakey and doughy malt flavors; faint earthiness. Gentle aromas of herbs, perfumes and flowers. Banana and bubblegum in the back. Light, peppery bitterness.

Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy amber gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is pretty floral. Med minus body. Flavor is hard to describe. It’s floral. I get some rose. It’s also Belgian yeast/spice. Wasn’t getting banana ester, but now I do. I’m beginning to think one could find anything in this. I’m beginning to think the rose wasn’t. Not so flavorful as an earthy Belgian, but very tasty in a rather light way. Finishing sort of citrously bitter. Good ale.

Banana-like and floral aroma. Nice yeast character in flavor; spicy, fruity. Light caramel and biscuit--enough to give it some balance. Finishes sweeter... A little too much, probably.

Gription79 (2885) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden amber. Restricted Belgian yeast character is the first thing I notice. Sweet malts, grainy, spicy. This whole beer is subtle. There is some astringency/tannins possibly from the rose hops. This is a standard Pyramid brewed beer. Meh.

Bottle. Golden colour with thick lasting white head. Aroma is caramel and fruit. Flavour has a little spice, a little citrus and some malt. Rather weak and bland finish

Brand new Belgian Style Ale with Rose Hips added in the batch. I think Rose Hips are a sleep aid. Hmmm, maybe I should not be drinking this one so early on.

This stuff’s pretty good. Purchased at the Red Apple in Eugene Oregon in a 22oz bottle for $1.99. For the price this is a steal because it’s comparable to some of the other American Belgian style ales and in some aspects exceeds many of them in taste. The rose hip flavor might throw a few people off but it’s actually quite pleasant. Tastes of banana bread and sour apple. Great price to value ratio.
