Sampled on tap at the Ale House in SF. A fine mead, however the flavor is not sweet or refreshing. There is a combination of flavors however not something that sits nicely on the tounge.

Wish I checked the ratings first. This is not meant to be a good mead. Instead is meant to be a bad cider. They just want to make a chugable gluten free alcoholic beverage instead of a mead.

Pale yellow-gold in colour. Slightly hazy. Small, frothy white head. Aroma of jasmine, flowers, honey. Tastes of pear, honey, and jasmine. Light body, with a slick, oily texture. Very soft carbonation. Finishes lingering, with a slight dryness. An interesting experiment, if nothing else.

My first mead so I can’t compare, but I like this stuff. Hazy yellow with fizzy white head; floral aroma of honey. Taste is mainly honey and jasmine tea. Pleasant carbonation, easy to drink, very refreshing.

So this is my very first experience with Mead. Yeah, I’m sure I could have selected a sexier mead to have for my first, but I’ve known Rogue for a really long time now, and I’d say we are comfortable with each other, and it felt right. 22 ounce bottle purchased at the Rogue Issaquah brew house. Very inexpensive, which sold me, because when it comes to mead, that makes this unique right from the start. Pours a cloudy peach color with a sweet herbal tea aroma. Flavor is rich honey, and big floral. Very interesting drink here, and not really what I expected, even though I’m not sure what I was expecting in the first place. Very easy drinking, floral, fruit juice. Not bad.
