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.

Light, slightly sour. Slight funky aroma, a bit much for me but not too bad. Pear, champagne accents, decent

Looks really watered down, tastes really watered down, at 5.2% it might actually be watered down. Not a good representation of mead.

Weak and looks like urine. Tasted at rogue house. Wouldn't get again. The lavender shines thru to help at the end.

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

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

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.

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 (7404) - 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.
