25cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden with a slight oily haze and a head that disappears quite quickly. Nose - overripe pineapple and a wood tannin edge but not huge. Taste - pineapple with dessicated coconut from the oak barrel. Palate - light to medium bodied with sweet texture and a sweet and uninteresting finish. Overall - so coconuty! Not very inspiring.

Bottle. Clear pale gold pour with a few bubbles of white foam. Aroma of solvent, fake pineapple (the fake aroma you would get from pineapple toilet deodorant, not that that actually exists), chalk, rancid butter. Taste is pretty frickin bad, solventy, horrible crap, vomit, chalk, paint, uggghhhh. Take it away now! Banana’s arch rival.

tom10101 (2661) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle (250 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Slightly hazy yellow/golden with a light ring of white foam and little lacing. Aroma is buttery with arfiticial pineapple, solvent and rotten notes. Taste is also buttery and sugary/sweet with sticky solvent and an artificial something that doesn’t taste like fruit at all. Light body. Low carbonation/flat. Sirupy mouthfeel. The only positive thing I have to say about this one is that it might be as good if not a little better than Chapeau Banana.

gold color; pineapple and oak aroma; very sweet with lots of sugary, artificial pineapple flavor; the oak is more in the aroma; I had been hoping for something more sour; too sweet for me

Blade86 (545) - Wrocław, POLAND - FEB 14, 2014
pineapple in aroma? yes, and sugar, a lot of sugar; pale yellow, almost no foam; a lot of sweetness and not much else; light body but not watery, more like syrup, thick and sticky, long sweet finish; Overall: way too sweet

capali1234 (272) - HUNGARY - DEC 31, 2013
Pours clear golden with nearly no head at all. Synthetic odour of some sweet, cheap detergent, sparsely interpersed with vinous notes.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. A- Pineapple, citrus. A- Orange color, hazy liquid, minimal head. T- Pineapple, citrus, skunky. P- Light body, average texture, high carbonation, skunky finish. O- I have a hard time believing this beer could taste so bad. I think I may have had a bottle with a bad cork. I still tried to look around this. Another bottle may be in order.

Bottle provided by James. Pours orange with a small white head, lots of sediment. Aroma is sweet, malty, loads of pineapple and tropical fruit. Taste is very sweet, lightly sour, lots of tropical fruit. Medium body, soft carbonation. I actually like this stuff.
