Cask at local ?Spoons. A bit hazy with no head, although the staff did tell me that! Fantastic floral/ malty nose, quite full bodied, subtle hop flavours that linger well. Lovely! Hey! I’m a hipster asshole!! Yay!

The aroma is wonderful and floral. Almost perfumey. The taste just doesn’t work for me. Almost like bath soap. Nice try just not for me.

Philym (692) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Appearance: Clear amber with tight finger thick very head. Aroma: Bread, floral, slight citrus, earthy, resinous, musky, leaves, yeast. Taste: Medium sweet and low sourness with an initial low/medium bitterness but the bitterness develops more in the finish. Palate: Thick grainy texture, light/medium body, average carbonation, lingering dry initially fairly sweet, malty, citrus, fruity finish followed by a more bitter and herby/green leaf finish. Comments: Very tasty and glass lace.

jonnyguns (793) - AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with quite a lot of floating bits. Nose shows floral, citrus and light grassy note. Taste is much the same, floral taste from the jasmine flowers, citrus and a slight hoppy bitterness. Solid beer but nothing great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b3shine (4419) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bomber to taster. Looks good; a slightly hazy golden orange with eggshell head. Smells floral and hoppy. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright, but more floral than I’d prefer (likely from the juniper).

BLADT (198) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2014
From bottle. Pours orange, yellow. Buttery nose. Smells of wort. Holy shit. That is some jasmine. Some funk. Cork notes. Decent hop profile. The jasmine does diminish as it warms. Fairly drinkable.

bwa5879 (537) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Slightly cloudy pale orange/tan pour with foggy sheer layer of head. Very subtle flavors, pine and citrus are faint, jasmine flower potpourri is definitely detectable, sprucey finish flavor. Nose is berries and flowers with a hop background, maybe pine.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle @tasting. Pours amber, ever so slight haze, nice lacing. Big floral nose almost too much. Dry like a white wine on the palate, hoppy huge floral notes up front and on the finish.

allmyvinyl (2168) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours hazy golden yellow, thin white head. Jasmine is there on the aromas, alongside floral hops and caramel. Tastes as the aroma. Nice clean finish. Pretty good.

gmellison (368) - Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle from wilburs. Pours a hazy golden color. Aroma is piney, mild citrus, mild sweet floweryness. Flavor is citrus, some sweet tea like mellowness. Must be the jasmine. Pretty good.

McNeillR (976) - SCOTLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Pale enough, light haze and light ringed white head. Light Jazmine. Corky, cardboardy maybee too much floral nose. Soft and steely initial taste. Tight enough bitterness. Lightly oily. Soft mettalic. Finish is trickles of elderflower afore the Jazzzmine. Soft light bittered.

Bottle, February Tasting
