Fort George XVIth Chapel Roses on Roses

CIMG6339

Here’s an interesting one. This is a Belgian IPA brewed with Galena, Centennial, and Amarillo hops. What makes this brew especially unique is that it’s aged in Four Roses Bourbon barrels with rose hips. I’m not entirely sure what rose hips taste like, but maybe it will come through in the beer.

Stats:
Belgian India Pale Ale. 9.2% ABV. Oregon. Limited Release.

Burnt orange color. Ridiculous head.

Belgian yeast with a lot of fruity-ness and a bit of a tart thing going on. It’s also got some oak and brown sugar on the nose.

Mouthfeel is on the full bodied side with a medium carbonation.

The palate is more American than the nose. Slight Belgian yeast up front, but gets quite hoppy on the mid with some alcohol and medium-high bitterness on the finish. Just a hint of sweetness.

Very interesting beer. I don’t know about the rose hips, but you definitely get some Belgian, American, and oak flavors. 89 points.
