Light golden in color with a half inch head of tightly knit head of off white foam. Brussels lacing. Aroma of light grains and a bit of jasmine. The flavor is light grains in the front of the palate and then a more powerful finish with judicious use of jasmine in the finish. The body is light and crisp.
Serving type: on-tap

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip. Worth noting this was a short 12oz bottle, not a 22oz bomber.
A - Pours a very nice crystal clear light golden hue with a nice thick one finger of white head that fades to leave a thin creamy blanket. Quite nice.
S - Aromas of crackery grains, faint sweet malts, light floral notes (not perfumey, more field like). Not much in the way of hops. Light and inviting.
T - Taste is well, definitely jasmine. More of the crackery grains, sweet pale malts are in the background. Absolutely no hops here, just soft floral jasmine notes. As someone else said, the slight bitter finish comes from the jasmine flowers instead of the hops. Quite interesting and unique.
M - Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, nicely carbonated. Super crisp and clean, incredibly drinkable.
O - Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. If there was more hops in here, then the jasmine would have to be more heavy handed which can lead to a potpourri/soap like aroma and taste. The way this beer was done though the jasmine is allowed to shine through in a gentle floral quality. Very, very nicely done and definitely delivers what 4 Hands set forth to accomplish.
