This rating is for a six-pack cans, the first I did not like at all. One week later, I thought about pairing it with sushi and a salad. Jasmine goes with Asian cuisine, I imagined. It wasn’t bad in this context. But the taste isn’t great, and there’s something about the aroma some call "barnyard" that doesn’t suit me well. I’m predisposed to want to love a local, and wish I could, but probably won’t buy again.

jgb9348 (6281) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Cloudy golden coloured body with a thinnish, fast-dying white head, about a centimetre tall. Aroma of pale malt, yeast, bread, grass and a touch of coriander seed and canned corn. Light-bodied; Strong yeast and wheatie flavours dominate the taste with a very nice sweetness of corn and caster sugar that also shows some fresh grain and citrus note as well. Aftertaste has a little bit of spicey character, but the yeast and coriander seed are the strongest, along with some subdued nutty flavours. Overall, a nice and very light beer that still has a lot of character and complexities, while remaining very light. Nice to sample and a good beer throughout that is a good one to have in inventory or just to sample! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from The Perfect Pour in Elk Ridge, Maryland on 28-November-2016 for US$2,89 sampled at home in Washington on 23-January-2017.

Smell is sweet, juicy fruit with funky bubblegum notes. Mostly a Belgian golden ale with some floral/garden flavor and aroma.

Pours a bright gold with a thin white head. Aroma is floral and jasmine, light bread malts. Flavor is jasmine, nectar, and some floral notes, with sweet bread taking up more character. Has a light, crisp mouthfeel. Not bad.

That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2016
On tap. Hazy yellow pour with a minimal head. Very sulfury. Can’t even identify this as a Belgian. So much sulfur and DMS. Drinkable.

2.8
alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Can. Golden yellow color with an average white head. Breast aroma with hint of spice and flowers. The latter elements a bit more pronounced in the finish. Crisp and mostly dry. Ok
