COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An off-centered autumn honey beer brewed with 55% barley, 45% honey, and gesho root. Gesho is an African plant used for its bittering properties, and is used in the traditional Tej style brews of Africa. We also added 45 pounds of local peaches from Fifer Orchards during fermentation to add complexity. This beer was fermented with champagne yeast and it is mildly sweet, smooth, and complex. It has notes of honey and ripe stone fruits.

Reviewed back in 2010 - The aroma is nice and sweet. The honey and peaches come through nicely here making for an inviting smell. Makes you want to jump right in. Mixed in there is a nice taste of wheat. A review I read says it has some tea like qualities thrown in. I kinda agree. Itís a nice mixture of wheat, sweetness of the peaches and honey, and the tea like qualites. At 7.50% the alcohol is nicely masked. My buddy Jeff enjoyed it so much he ordered an extra snifter. I think this beer would go nicely into their 750ml lineup as maybe a one time offering or heck maybe replace something. Really enjoyed it.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 1, 2010
On tap at brewpub. Pours a cloudy, bright honey color with a dense thin head that had good retention. It has a big wheet aroma with an underlying fruity sweetness. The peach and honey sweetness stand tall in the start, but are mellowed nicely by a moderate floral hoppiness. the flavors blend well and hold on for a long drawn finnish. Mouthfeel is sticky, smooth and long (like a watered down syrup consistancy) . Drinkability is quite easy, though itís hard to imagine drinking a whole lot of this.

From the tap poured a brown color with a good amount of head. An odd sweet bitter flavor with almost a bubblegum flavor finish.

On tap @ the Brewpub, Rehoboth De-Cloudy golden color w/a moderate white head. Aroma of wheat & honey. Sweet flavors of honey, wheat, grass/grain, & light fruit. Long sweet finish. Enjoyable, but you really canít drink too much of this one, a good after dinner sipper.
