Formerly Chatoe Rogue 19 Original Colonies Mead.
Situated just across from 40 acres of Rogue hops, 19 colonies of bees were carefully kept and fed. Their honey was extracted, filtered and brewed as a jasmin-infused Mead. Brewed with 5 ingredients: Rogue Hopyard Honey, Wild Flower Honey, Jasmin Silver Tip Green Tea Leaves, Champagne Yeast, & Free Range Coastal Water.

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

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 (2626) - 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 (1117) - 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.

650ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden body, small white head, residual foam with good retention. Intense carbonation. Aroma of jasmine, pears, honey, acacia, green tea. Taste of jasmine and green tea, bosc pears, honey, grains. Very refreshing.

Bottle. Golden with a honey like sweetness. Smooth and quite easy to drink but not really my thing. Would not drink again.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2014 Just started a replay of Skyrim & it feels obligatory to drink some mead in that virtual land of ice & snow. I’m far from an expert on the style, but this turns out better than expected. The pour causes a roar of carbonated applause, so loud I thought it’d wake up my baby. Taste is somewhere between subtle honey & tart ginger ale. Worth trying. And the rating score here is way too low.

The mead pours a hazed golden yellow with a minimal white head and plenty of effervescence. The aroma is honey, light fruit, grains, and spices. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is very honey strong, with some herbs, grains, and light fruit rounding it out. I like the strong honey presence.

Boutip (5215) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color mead with a nice pure white bubbly head with some retention. Aroma of light floral honey notes with some jasmine notes is quite delicate. Taste is also dominated by light floral honey notes with some subtle jasmine notes. Body is light with great carbonation. I enjoyed the balance of this mead and the fact that there was not too much residual sugar notes.

650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a murky honeyish orange/yellow with thin white head. Aroma is sweet honey, fruit and some flowers. Flavour has sweet honey comb, some fruity yeastiness and a little floral character. Pleasant enough.
