Sparkling clear straw hue with a bubbly head. Nose reminds me of sunscreen and tropical fruit notes like pineapple and mango/melon. But that sunscreen note is distracting. The taste has a little lemony notes about it with a small sweetness, no honey notes, and a bit of passion fruit or mango. That sunscreen tone comes back JUST a little on the finish.

Yorker (1309) - Herning, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear yellow with a white head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma and flavour are honey, herbs, and flowers - with a slightly dry finish.

patrick767 (3586) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 19, 2014
tap at Dash In - Pale yellow pour, light honey aroma... it tastes lightly sweet with honey, obviously, and not much else. It’s watery, bland, and left me wondering why. What’s the point?

mcberko (6886) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
On tap at Rogue San Francisco, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out a decent amount of honey, followed by jasmine, and floral notes. Flavour is very watery, bringing out light notes of honey and subtle jasmine. Such a weak mead - no body or depth to the flavour at all. Pretty piss poor mead.

delnoche (454) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - DEC 25, 2013
650ml bottle poured into a glass. Sparkling yellow. A large fizzy head initially and then immediately flat. Aroma is lightly honey and something artificially sweet. Flavor is way too sweet. No sign of honey. Tastes like a flat ginger ale. No good. Very disappointing offering from the normally fantastic Rogue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz Bomber poured into a pint glass. Very light straw color with almost no head. Aroma is definitely honey, flavor is very light honey with an aftertaste of jasmine green tea. I like it. Could quaff, on a hot day. Maybe heat up for a pre-bed treat?

TBone (12966) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle 650ml (Bierkompass)
Yellow color, small white head, Whitewineous honey and tea aroma. Light-bodied. Very carbonated. Champagne like palate. White wine, green apple, yeast, tea and honey in the flavor. Interesting Champagne beer, flavorwise not so.
