COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jasmine Ale. This mysterious ale calls upon centuries of brewing and human intrigue with natural herbs. In days gone by, these beers were conjured up for many reasons and occasions. Folks consumed various natural herbs in many forms, and beer was one. It was thought that these herbs had qualities that complement everyday life. Today's connoisseur is finding that a swing back to the way it used to be is a natural cycle of life. Some of our modern ways could use a little tweaking and taking a step back into the world of Herbs is a great way to start. Enjoy this amber ale with a nice malt sweetness and just a hint of Jasmine and hops.

22 ounce bottle from City Market in Burlington, VT (March 2008), sampled a little below cellar temperature from a Unibroue glass. A moderate to largish creamy off-white head forms above the pale translucent-near opaque amber body, fading quickly and leaving a touch of faint lacing....floral notes in the aroma are obvious but not particularly powerful, not dominating but instead mixing interestingly with some cedary woods and light citric hints....the body is a touch woody as well, moderately sweet with hints of burnt sugars, lightly bitter and tart throught and growing somewhat hard and mineralic, and more strongly tart to finish....hops are muted, the woody hardness perhaps more the product of the flowers....interesting and drinkable, but not entirely successful.

Pours a hazy orange/copper, little head, next to no retention. Smells of an herb garden, peach iced tea. Jasmine present on flavor has a slightly tea aftertaste. Ok.

Rcvd as a gift. Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a clear yet light amber body with a half finger of white head that fades fairly quickly to a film, carbonation is seen rising, and what appears to be jasmine is floating around in the glass The smell had jasmine, light herbal/tea-likeness, subdued caramel/malts. The taste was sweet and bready through previously mentioned flavors. On the palate, it sat about a light, but carbonation is initially felt but becomes better felt as the beer warms. Overall, well, I think Rock Art did what they wanted to so I’ll commend them for that, and since jasmine is good for relaxation purposes, I’d say not bad in a beer maybe as a night cap even if its a low ABV.

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is copper amber with a moderate head but this has some wild carbonation flowing up the glass. The aroma is of jasmine and herb with a clean hop note. The body is light to medium. The taste takes a little getting used t o because of the herbs and jasmine. It works well for what it is.

Cherry orange color. Smell like sweet jasmine tea and honey. Tastes like malty Jasmin tea with minimal bitterness. After taste is light and dry. Nice unusual beer. Fun to drink.

22oz bottle shared by dudeabide. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Lots of fine particles in the body. Little off-white head. Not sure that the jasmine works with the pale ale citrus hops. Light to moderate bitter, light sweet. Alright pale ale.

phaleslu (6843) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by jmborggren, I think. Pours a slightly hazed rose-gold with an off-white ring for a head. Aroma of jasmine, pale malts, perfume, and fainter herbs and floral notes. Flavor is the same. Light-bodied, with a super dry mouthfeel that leans floral and has medium carbonation. Underrated. Good summer sipper.

Bomber to snifter (shared by dudeabide). Looks solid; a cloudy deep orange with white lacing. Smells of herbs. Tastes like it smells, only blander. Average on the palate. Meh.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2013
Dégustée en fût au Farmhouse Tap & Grill à Burlington, VT. De couleur ambrée-orangée et voilée. Nez floral et herbeux (herbes fraîches) avec des notes épicées, de grains de malt pâle et de houblon herbeux. Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement aqueuse. Goût floral et légèrement herbeux (herbes aromatiques) avec des traces fruitées (bleuets?) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt pâle avec des traces de pain et de miel puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen-court et aux notes sèches, composé d’un léger goût d’herbes et floral avec des notes de grains et de pain. (12 mai 2013)

Herbs, but not much hops. Blah bitterness, oxidized yet a very fresh May brewed bottle. Orange coloured body and lacey. Dry finish.
