COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Brewed with 5 ingredients: Rogue Hopyard Honey, Wild Flower Honey, Jasmin Silver Tip Green Tea Leaves, Champagne Yeast, & Free Range Coastal Water.

fiulijn (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Draught at REAL A Gastropub, Honolulu, HI
as Chatoe Rogue 19 Colonies Mead With Jasmine

Blond color with compact and persistent head. Some aroma of honey. Light mouthfeel, dry, with some ordinary honey flavor, and a mild flowery touch from the jasmine; it also has a moderate bitterness.
As pleasant as a wheat beer, in other words not interesting as mead.

yngwie (13845) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2013
On tap at Rogue, San Francisco. A lightly unclear one, with some white bubbles on top. Lots of flowers in the aroma, citrusy notes too. Not much else, but what’s there is pleasant. Thin on the palate, dry and still. Flowers dominates the flavor too. Nice, but maybe a bit too much. Anyway, I like it. 130805

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.

bhensonb (11273) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours like a cider - lightly gold and a very transient white head. Aroma is sort of honey flower. Light body. Flavor is fairly thin - not your typical syrupy mead. It’s mildly honey with touches of jasmin. For me it’s not sweet - bitter in a way rather different from most beers. Maybe it’s the tea. Quite different.

brokensail (11102) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 15, 2013
A bottle of mead that gushes? Okay... Hazy golden pour with a pronounced fizz. Smells of white grape, sugar, alcohol, and grape Otter Pops. Quite medicinal, too. The flavor is terribly medicinal and syrupy. Sugar, white grape juice, and alcohol. Some tea, straw, and cardboard. Fizzy, watery, and tart.

adnielsen (9286) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a bit hazy yellow appearance with a thin off-white head. Big green apple, sweet honey, floral, nectar aroma. Bubbly, soda-like mouth feel. Strangely a little bitter, fizzy, sweet honey, green apple flavor. Carbonation is pretty high and makes this one pretty hard to drink.
