3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Rogue Farms/Chatoe Rogue. The beer is a dark ruddy amber color with a thin white head that dissipates steadily to a dense film. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of berry, malt and a touch of spice. Full-bodied with a sweet marionberry character and notes of malt, spice and earth. The finish is fruity with a berry aftertaste. Decent overall.

Pretty red pour, likely fruity and berry notes, some honey flavors but hop notes kind of over power

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a deep, deep crimson, almost shading to brown, with a shallow, fine-grained, cream-colored head that rapidly dissipates. Nose is berries, geranium, lavender, talc, honey, and pears. Drier on the tongue than the nose portends; it has a strong menthol or camphor kick up front, then comes back at you with honey and marionberries. It’s a little boozy; I think the alcohol could have been dialed back a bit. But the finish is lovely, equal parts floral, fruity, and warm honey. If you can handle that initial burst of herbs and ABV, there’s a lot to like here.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL ceramic bottle from Warners at the Bay
Pours a rusty red coloured liquid, hazy, slight ring of foam persists.
Vinous aroma - cranberry juice, vinous red fruits, fragrant honey with hints of vanilla & fresh cut flowers.
Rich body, subtle carbonation, appreciable acidity & tannin - reminiscent of cranberry once again.
Body continues with lovely sweet honey upfront combining with vinous red fruit notes of cherry, plum & cranberry, subtle undertones of vanilla and sherry. Finish bittersweet, acidity lingers, vinous overall impression.
Unlike anything I’ve ever come across - never tried a marionberry; seems to add a red wine-like character to the mead.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml. pours deep chestnut with ruby highlights and a lasting thin film of foam. Nose is marionberry, prune, and lightly spiced bread pudding. Front flavors of prune and dark whole grain bread take a slow turn to lightly tart marionberry and dark toffee. The finish is at first a little off-putting with bitter wood and bitter, dark grain. But later sips show a smoother transition to the finishing bitterness and seem to incorporate some chocolate notes. Medium-plus body has a low-medium carbonation and a fairly drinkable balance. Shows just a hint of the abv.
