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.

Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Light spice aroma. Yeast and malt flavor with light spice and light fruitiness. Medium bodied. Yeast and malt linger with light fruitiness and light floral notes.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A nice sweet candy and floral nose. Pretty smooth flavors, some biscuit, sugar, corn, big rose. Certainly a little rose goes a long way here. This beer works.

Bottle... Poured golden with a thin head that faded quickly. Mostly Belgian yeast esters on this one. Pretty pedestrian. A little herbalness and floral tones with lemongrass, citrus, and some malt sweetness. Belgian yeast 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.

Bottle from Fred Meyer. Light copper in color. Sweet yeasty nose. Very sweet smelling with a whiff of perfume. Sweet fruity yeast flavors up front. Going into a lightly bitter hopped finish. Tastes like a straight up Belgian ale to me.

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.

Gription79 (2892) - 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.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 The old Portland Brewing moniker has been revived! 22oz bottle from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $2.79 Pours a dark golden with a rosy tint especially in the generous head. Estery ,spicy,banana wheat aromas,slight semi-vegetal fruitiness if that makes any sense! Taste is semi dry with definate rose hip tones ( used to eat rose hip skins back in Scotland as a kid),vegetal,slight black peppercorn, then a slight plum taste. Altogether quite complex yet light. Nice palate for the style..its light enough to aid drinkability. I liked this one quite a bit..but the rose hip tastes might be off putting to some.
