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.

kraddel (4989) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle . Pours clear blonde, no head . Smell is filthy, sweet, candy-fruityness . Almost unrecognizable to be pineapple . Taste is like a rotten lemonade . The funky aspect of the lambic still shines trough ( in a bad way, believe it or not ) and totally collides with the areficial aspects that are in this beer . The aftertaste is OK , like a sweet lambic with a fruity touch . Low carbo . The first taste when sipping is just plain discusting .

Bottle @ another tasting. Aroma is glue, solvent and artificial exotic fruity something notes. Flavour is lemonade, artificial, hint of vomit.

Bottle at Another Tasting, hosted by MrHangover. Clear golden pour, no head. Aroma of chemical pineapple. Flavor is very sweet and cloying fruits. Bad.

MrHangover (3605) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle @ Another Tasting, courtesy of kermis. Pours a clear golden beer without any head on top. Aroma of tropical fruit, but then regurgitated and spat on the floor... Flavor starts off thirst quenching, but then it’s decieving you and kicking you in the face like mule in Moscow. Fuck this shit..

kermis (8085) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours clear golden witha small off white head. Aroma of rotten fruit, rubber, bandaid. Flavor is heavy sweet with a little acidity. Terrible.

czar (6217) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
pours unclear pale yellow, gold tint, with a disappearing white cap, no lacing. mint, coconut, pina colada, cheap artificial pineapple candies, faint old grassy hops, light woodsy notes, über-cloying - honey, malt sweetness and over-sweetened fruit juice. light carbonation, - lacking, medium body - oily and sticky, coconuty and buttery finish. more than muted lambic character. dis-gus-ting. but not all chapeau’s are - not overly bashing here, this simply is just not drinkable - highly improbable that one could drink a 37.5cl by him(her)self.

mathieuc (2485) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle shared by czar, thanks! Pours a clear golden with a small rim that leaves no lacing. Nose is of pineapple and coconut, heavily sweetened. Taste is of sweet canned pineapple and coconut, like a swilly pina colada. Mouthfeel is just like drinking fruit syrup, too sweet and sticky. Almost no lambic character. Blah.
