3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
