The Green Collar Mead comes from the good folks at Blue Dog Mead Company out of Eugene, Oregon. The great thing about this sparkling mead is that it is the first of its kind to come in a can. Finally, a mead I can easily take on my many outdoor excursions. It’s much easier to hike the Adirondack or Green Mountains with a bunch of cans in the pack than glass bottles!
Unleash and enjoy Green Collar, a sparkling mead with a honey aroma, hint of apple and vanilla finish.
I poured from the can for evaluation purposes, but you won’t miss much when drinking directly from the can. The aroma and appearance aren’t why you drink this mead. The Green Collar Mead is a clear, pale straw color with a very subtle aroma of honey and vanilla. Mild honey sweetness with light vanilla, white grape and apple flavors give way to a dry, somewhat tart finish. It is a light bodied, drinkable session mead with medium carbonation that is reminiscent of a lightly carbonated champagne.
Blue Dog Green Collar Mead is a great refreshing beverage for a hot summer day that goes down smoothly after (or during) outdoor activity, especially since it comes in a can!
