COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We made this braggot with our own marionberries, hops, barley, and honey. Situated across from 40 acres of Rogue hops, 119 Colonies of bees were carefully kept, fed, and smoked and the honey was uncapped, extracted, filtered and finally infused into a refreshing Marionberry Braggot.

Dogbrick (11311) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2016
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

degbert (1660) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2016
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.

Muggus69 (2035) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2016
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.

Pours a light reddish color. Aroma of sweet fruit. The flavor was mostly berry but there is the slight hint of tannin.

nearbeer (4825) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2016
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.
