(Bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of a flower garden and some orange. Flavor of floral hops and caramel malt with a soft, creamy mouthfeel. I find these beers brewed with flowers kind of intriguing.

BeerandBlues2 (11472) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear orange with an average, frothy ivory head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (caramel, toasted, cereal), heavy hops (floral, herbal, grassy), and average esters (apple/pear) with heavy notes of jasmine. Flavor is average malt (caramel, toasted, cereal), heavy hops (floral, herbal, grassy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of perfumed jasmine. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation, low creaminess with a dry finish. The jasmine is way overdone in this beer, leaving it a perfume bomb that I could not finish.

mcberko (11200) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
Sampled at GCBF ’10, pours orangey yellow with a white head. Aroma and flavour is pretty much identical, with jasmine and citrusy hops mixing effectively. Interesting combination.

Gold pour. Light head. Floral hops lead the way with some citrus backing as well. The jasmine flowers are an odd addition. I would have never guessed what I was tasting, but I don’t think i really liked it. It just didn’t seem to meld with the hops right. Some caramel malt balanced this one a little.
