On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Sweet honey and a hint of lemon on the nose, a touch of musk. Medium bodied, soft fruit, a bit of musk, not overly sweet, but has a thick sot of mouthfeel that makes me think of something a bit sweeter. Slow gentle bitterness into the finish.

Bottle. Thought I was buying the DuPont beer. Ugh... Hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma is honey, floral, cardboard. Flavor is sweet, honey, grain, some floral. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Ok... tightslice (1532) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is sweet flowers, mild honey, bread, some Belgian yeastiness. Taste is light honey and a very mild Belgian. Gets better as it warms. Like a Kolsch meets a Belgian blonde. CaptDuda (1) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 7, 2015 does not count
My go to beer when visiting the Tasting Room. They will serve it in the correct glass for you, if you ask. It is a ’Braggot’ so there is honey in it. toml219 (284) - California, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Sweet and cidery. Taste of fruite. Nice once and awhile but not all the time. Poured into a pint glass

On tap @ Rabbits Foot. Clear golden straw pour with a white head. Mostly bready malt and a little bit of biscuit, dough, and cereal. There’s a bit of a paper/cardboard thing to it. A lot of bread, sweetened cereal, and some grass. A light bitterness to it and some hints of orange. Pretty light. slowrunner77 (13368) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2014
"not sure if this is technically a mead or a kolsch...Rabbit’s Foot is a meadery, but it smells and tastes like a Kolsch sweetened with honey, even though I know the honey was fermented. Basically, this was waaaay weaker (4.2%) than Chaucer’s Mead, but it totally works as a summer session beer. Usually when I go to breweries, their "honey" ale is a crappy blonde or golden with some honey thrown in, but this is actually a very well crafted kolsch underneath, and a near perfect amount of honey...I thought the honey was lacking at first, but not as it opened up. Pours just a touch darker than a standard kolsch. Fairly high carbonation, thin hrad and light-medium bodied. Aroma is more kolsch than honey, but nice. Flavor is very refreshing...some citrus, grain, and honey finish. Although not my favorite style, well done!"

Sample at the Rabbit’s Foot Meadery. Clear golden color with a medium fluffy white head that diminishes gradually to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of fruit, doughy malt and hops. The finish is fruity with a biscuit malt aftertaste. Slightly below average Kölsch overall. Meilby (11826) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2013

Pours clear pale yellow with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, honey and floral and fruity. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with a light floral and slightly dry finish. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.
On tap at the brewpub. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a white head. The aroma is lightly fruity, feeling dry, with a honey twist. Fruity, lightly honey-ish flavor with a decent bitterness. Medium to thin on the palate, dry, and with a short finish. Not a bad one, but rather boring and uninteresting. 130808
