WaddlingPlatypus (42) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2016
250ml bottle. Carbonated pale yellow wit virtually no head. Strong aroma of candied fruits, with hints of brandy and cinnamon. The flavour is predominantly tart and cutting pineapple, with an acidic mouthfeel on the swallow and a sticky residue left behind. Unusual and jam-like.

At Maakun’s, bottle eagerly shared by Maakun. Pale golden with thin white ring head. Smells as if you’re opening your last can of 20 years past best before date pineapple in an apocalyptic world. Super sweet sugar pineapple candy, canned pineapple and some light cheesy funk. Light carbonation and a dusty moldy finish.

Maakun (2867) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle shared at home. Clear light golden with white head. Canned pineapple from the 60ies, very sugary, light puke, cheese, pee, light dried leaves and hay. Quite sweet and light sour. Under medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Seems a bit sweeter than other Chapeaus, and maybe slightly less puke-like. Still don’t understand how anyone could ever like this though.

vtafro (6057) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle, old, not sure what year. Golden pour with no head. Terrible vegetal, green beans, off aromas. Flavors are still off, pineapple maybe, sweet and terrible tones.

jukkar (100) - FINLAND - FEB 24, 2016
Aroma has a hint of pineapple in it. Appearance looks like cider but without any bubbles. Color is golden and beer is clear, not very beer like. Taste is medium sweet. This drink is very flat, no carbonation at all. Finish is too long. I did not like this "beer" at all, very disappointing.

djd07 (8213) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours a pale gold with small frothy white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong pineapple and cream. Thin mouth, pineapple cream, light tart finish, ok.

VsXsV (3814) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle shared at hotel lobby fart share @ RBWG 2016. Clear golden liquid with minimal white head. Aroma of pineapple, grain, cardboard and wood. Taste is medium sweet sweet and light sour with notes of sugar, pineapple and cardboard. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Ugh. Awful.

gripweed57 (1284) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2015
375 ml corked and capped bottle. Clear golden color. Small white head dissapates quickly. Sweet candy-like aroma redolent of pineapple and lemon furniture polish. Flavor mirrors aroma with more sweet pineapple juice. Lightly carbonated. Overly sweet and cloying.

joergen (25286) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle in a train in Belgium. Clear golden coloured with a small white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel and pine apples. Sweet and fruity flavour of pine apples and blue cheese. Fruity finish.

29/XII/14 - 25cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ holiday - BB: 1/IX/16 (2014-1556)

Clear pale orange beer, small white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of sweet pineapple, bit sugary, pineapple juice. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: sweet, pineapple juice, bit sugary, soft sourness. Aftertaste: pineapple juice, sugary, sweet, well, it does deliver it’s promise, namely being a pineapple beer... and it that way it is pretty original and actually not too repulsing.
