fairwater (139) - Reading, Berkshire, - NOV 1, 2013
Cask @ Monks Retreat. Another hipster asshole who likes this beer... Very floral taste, donít think Iíve ever tasted a jasmine so wouldnít know thatís what it was, but it makes a decent beer, with the sweetness and perfume balanced with a light but lingering bitterness. Would have another if I didnít have a bus to catch.

Bomber. Pours hazy amber. Aroma is heavy jasmine and floral, toasted and caramel malts, and light pineapple. Flavor is sweet and tasty with floral notes prevalent along with soft sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium body.

willisread (946) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle from Hatos Bar. Clear gold copper with a medium-sized soapy eggshell-colored head. Some honey and jasmine tea all over the nose. Taste is fairly well-balanced until the jasmine kicks in on the finish and lingers. Very weird tea-like beer. Not my thing.

Appearance: has a very minimal off white head, the beer is a hazy bronze color Aroma: very floral, tangerine, Taste: orange syrup sweetness, minimal bitterness for an ipa, Palate: soft carbonation, heavier mouthfeel, minimal aftertaste Overall: kind of let down, too sweet for me and too fruity also, smells really good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lagerboy (1579) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2015
Bomber. Clear orange, thin off-white foam. Fragrant flowery aroma. Odd perfumed fruity taste, herbal, floral, lean backseat malts, citrus hint. Softer carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Pass the palate cleanser. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

commonmac (698) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Pint glass. Copper in color with a slight haze. Mild head. Aroma is mostly floral with mild citrus. Taste brings the jasmine to the table which is actually pretty appreciated. Floral notes with a thin mouthfeel. Relatively tame flavor profile overall with the floral remaining present. Bitterness at the end. Decent effort but I want a fuller taste and more satisfying mouthfeel.

stantheman (816) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
On tap at St Augustineís in Vancouver. A medium Amber beer with white head. Faint floral nose. On the palate the floral note is evident and not to my taste, frankly. Reminds me of tea, which is not something I normally associate with beer. vaguely pleasant, but a 4 oz taster is more than enough, thanks. 3.

Draft pour pint at the fields location. Pours a light clear copper color with a short foam head. Wonderful white grape aroma. Smells like a sour beer. Flavor is very floral as expected with a ton of grape and berry flavor. Sweet, and super drinkable. Very tasty

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2015
Finger white head, golden color, light cloudy, good lacing. Aroma: jasmine, wheat, floral hops, light caramel. Palate: light body, average carbonation, bitter finish, dry finish. Taste: sweet caramel, with jasmine overwhelming the palate for a brief second, on into floral and piney hops that overwhelm and finish out the taste. Overall, very refreshing, interesting, liked this more out of a bottle than on tap, the jasmine is less overwhelming.
