Pours a light yellow with lots of quickly dispersing white foam. Smells sweet with an herbal hint. Tastes very sweet with hints of mint and grass.

Really nice mead. Not really strong but very good and sweet taste. Not filling so a pint is enough for a good time 😊

TheCaptMatey (179) - Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2015
Poured a golden straw colour with a thin white head. Aroma of honey, floral tea leaves, and lavender. Flavor is an earthy/ herbal honey with a tart flavor. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Dry finish

arminjewell (8474) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2015
Pour on tap, slightly hazy golden pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of some tea, floral, herbal notes with a hint of honey, slight vanilla into a bit of watery yeast. Taste was a mix of honey, vanilla and slight fruit into some floral, earthy notes with a touch of herbs, finishing slightly tart, slightly sweet.

smith4498 (3222) - Miami, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2015
Pours slightly hazy pale straw color with white head. Aromas of fruit, honey, and some alcohol. Tart apple and honey flavors with some floral notes. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation.

chucklemation (696) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Pours a honey yellow color with a thin white foam head. Aroma is honey and lots of jasmine tea and floral notes. Flavor is lightly sweet honey, and a little bit of jasmine. Drinks more like a crisp, refreshing blonde than a mead, and maybe that’s why it has such a low score. I enjoyed it.

PorterPounder (6043) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl. - Whole Foods Market - 22 oz bomber. Hazy, light golden initial bubbly white head. Aroma is not very apparent but when picked up is not unpleasant - light hints of green tea and honey, some floral hints. Flavor is rather bland, light hints of honey, some glue-like oddness, a bit of green tea, but overall kind of dusty and bland. Mouthfeel is dry and uneventful. Disappointed, usually a Rogue fan.

This is not a typical rouge product. Cloudy, sour this is not mead also alcohol content is extremely low for mead at around 5 percent. Pass on this one

czar (5358) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
pours unclear very pale yellow without a head, slightly carbonated - some low sized bubbles surfacing. strong perfumey honey - buckwheat-like, very flowery - jasmine i guess, sweet green apples - gala type and pears too, linear sweetness, yeast, tree gum, lightly grassy and astringent, peppery, metal traces. light carbonation, light body, linear sweet finish. blah.

Metalchopz (2559) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2015
Pours a hazy light yellow colour with a small white cap, stays just a bit and gives out a little lacing. Not a fan of the aromas, as reminds me of earwax. In the back is the sweet honey and apples relaxing this. Thankfully, in the taste, this not there (not sure if the Jasmine is responsible, but I no like). Not really sweet, which was expected. The honey is mild and apples are the strongest thing here. Mild perfume in the finish. Quite refreshing for mead. Too bad for the smell.

cargo150 (948) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Couleur dorée avec presque aucun col mousseux. Aromes floral, jasmin, pommes, céréales, agrumes. Assez complexes. Manque un peu de balance. Interessant. Très sous-évalué selon moi.
