Blue Collar Mead has a very distinct taste, very sweet and raw. I would definitely have it again. It’s good to have a (meadery?) right here in town. Blue Collar Mead has since been upped to 13% alcohol.

It is interesting that Mead is found on a beer site. If I think about this as a wine, it is much dryer and less sweet than I thought. I agree though, this is not a very good beer. Descent mead when compared with Redstone, which is much sweeter and personally more difficult to drink. Blue Dog seems to go much better with Mexican and spicy foods.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2005
I’ve got way to many brews in this style sitting around the house half full,but oh well.Nice golden/amber color,no head to speak of and the aroma was honey sweet with maybe some hints at fruit in there.The flavor was medium sweet with a mild hint of some kind of fruit which is hard to say and a bit of a woody side that is fairly noticeable.It goes down fairly nicely and the alcohol never really makes a strong appearance.Over all not bad and decent enough to set on the table for Christmas.

Lots of body, but not very sweet at all. Band-aid flavor. Rather sourish and pretty thick. Ugh.

fiulijn (14342) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Corked bottle from Elizabeth Station, Bellingham, WA, 13% ABV
It pours a bright yellow color. Aroma of mead, with some honey, orchid flowers, and light scent of fig tree sap and of straws.
It has a good mouthfeel, with a moderate sweetness level; flavor of ordinary mead, with some honey notes and a white wine character, including a very light final bitterness and minimal tannins in the end.
The most evident association would be with a sweetish Riesling.
Quite nice.

mcberko (6029) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle, shared by fiulijn (thanks Alex), pours a clear yellow with no head / no bubbles. Aroma brings out loads of honey, a flower meadow, and some green apple-like light fruits. Flavour of green apples, honey, loads of flowers (like a fresh spring meadow) and a moderate sweetness. Not the most complex, with a finish leaving notes of white wine, honey and moderate sweetness. Good stuff.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - SEP 30, 2005
Bottle. Pours a still, light amber to blond color. Aroma is woody, tannic, bits of honey. Medium bodied for a mead. Flavor is light honey, dry, lots of white wine characteristics, slight saltiness?? Perhaps they are using new oak?? Very dry and winelike compared to other meads I have tried. Interesting.
