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.

I loveee this beer. I’m a moderate beer drinker so I’m no expert. Pours Amber and the aroma is so yummy. Didn’t get bitter at the end. Surprisingly big rose flavor.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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
