Smells like flowers. Taste is off dry and lightly bitter. Flavors of flowers, light citrus. Finish is thin and boring. Not great.

ARH (400) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The initial notes on the nose are grape juice and baked pears. There?s also a mild, cheese funk. These aromas subside and give way to bread, pie crust, floral notes, citrus, and light touches of caramel candy and spice. It pours a pale, effervescent yellow with a slight hint of haze. There?s an abundant, bubbly - soapy white head that retains a thick fluffy ring and leaves an abundant, thin layer of webby lace. The taste is a medium light bitter and medium light sweet; they?re bright tastes though, even though they?re not strong. It has a slick, waxy texture with light zippy carbonation. The body is light and dry, with a spice finish containing some floral notes, bead crust, resin, and even some honey. A touch of bread and clove appears in the aftertaste, but it light, short, and mostly clean. Rather refreshing

Dragonfly1 (494) - Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Nice beer. Soft, rounded flavors, delicate. Aroma is ripe tropical fruit, yeast, lemon peel. Getting bread, yeast, pear, almonds, and some pine needle bitterness at the finish. -1 for thinning out a bit too quickly. Overall unique, well made.

CanIHave4Beers (3253) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a light golden color with a small quickly diminishing head.

The aroma is doughy, grainy, husky, and soapy. Itís sort of floral & has some bright malt, but man... itís pretty soapy.

The flavor is better, still soapy but with a far more defined malt character that gives us some nice brightness and a touch of honey. The bitterness is both hoppy and floral... but man, this thing does have a good bit of jasmine flavor.

4 Hands is a way cool brewery, but jasmine has never been something Iíve cared for in a beer.

On tap @ 4 Hands. Clear golden pour with a white head. Sweet grain, grape juice, and some apple on the nose. A lot of grassy hops and a hint of soap. Kind of sweet and grainy flavor. Lots of cereal, some bread, and apple. A touch of soap, floral hops, and light grassy bitterness.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at the brewery (St. Louis, MO). RBSG 2014 Friday Bus Tour. Pours a pale straw yellow hue, faint haze with a frothy whitish ring atop. Mellow lacing, touch of stick around. Aromas are clean with gentle grainy malt, a touch of earth, faint herbal quality and mellow floral hit. Initial is dry, smaller with some soap, mellow apple and earth. Gentle yeastiness, bready malts. The apple and fruity feel is present, gentle white raisin and touches of sugar taper out. Bread, a bit of straw, mellow yeast elements. Finish is a bit dry, some gentle spice and jasmine. Touches of grass, florals. Nice stuff.
