3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased from One Stop Market yesterday afternoon. $5.00 ($4.95 + $0.05 container deposit) for the 650 mL bottle. I should mention that because the dust was so thick on the bottom-half of the bottle, signing my name with my pointer finger was embarrassingly effortless. Thankfully the bottle behind the one I decided on picking was covered in a dried dust that was as hard as rock. Glad I chose thoughtfully, but I have no idea how long this has sat on that shelf, but I had to put it out of its misery and acquire the bloody thing.
To long-stemmed snifter, it pours a sediment-heavy ruddy amber with which a thin off-white head 1 finger in length stood.
Aromas of candied mint leaves, damp newspaper, molded apricot, mulched hay, green tea (brief), white pepper, spent grain.
Tastes the same with the addition of earth-forward hops, basil, sweat, LME, and American yeast. Standard, but drinkable. Had an odd bubblegum flavor by swallow that must have come from the yeast. I would like to try this fresh(er) again. Good news: wasn’t half bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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)
