Reid (2364) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 The old Portland Brewing moniker has been revived! 22oz bottle from Roths 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.

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.

An above average Belgian style. Pours a clear Orange with a white head. Smells of citrus, herbs and rose. A bit like a saison. Taste is a bit thin and watery to start, but with a nice citrus rose petal taste in the finish. Had on tap at Pyramid Brewery for SF Beer Week.

Pours a bright golden color with a thin cap of head. The nose is of roses and cereal The taste starts with dry with spicy esters and a touch of citrus. An earthy/bready base comes next with the florals and grass rounding out the end.Kinda saison-esque.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 21, 2013
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.

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.
