BeerdedDave (117) - - FEB 14, 2014
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 (460) - 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 (271) - 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.

HuskerTan (342) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - DEC 29, 2013
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.

RamyG4 (320) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2013
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.

rosenbergh (6077) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2013
250 ml bottle. BB 06/08/15. From saveur-biere.com.
Cloudy brownish golden colour with a small white head. The aroma is like pineapple juice gone bad. Sweetness, pineapple and mild sourness. The flavour is... quite unbelievably bad. A ton of sugar, fruity sweetness, pineapple and some bad flavours. There’s nothing good in this one... it looks bad, smells bad and tastes bad. Oh hey... the bottle is only 250 ml. That’s good.

maekchu (1756) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle. Gentle peach nose, with almonds and airplane glue. Clear light apple juice color, no head. Buttery pastry initial / little touch of funk in mid, and the sweet pineapple is there / slight bittering intrudes in final. Thin body. Not that this is a really good lambic, but I like it better than the other fruit ones I’ve had from this brewery. Unusual.
