Yaaaaaaa Buddie! Summer is here and this is the Beer of Choice!! The nose was amazing pineapple all day! The Balance on the beer couldnít of been more spot on just a subtle hop presence and a well balanced body and the smooth sweetness of pineapple at the finish to make this a grand slam. Once again fine work Jdub. --Cesar

Holy Poppin Pineapples, Batman! Probably one of the most creative and well executed kolsches Iíve ever tried. This is one of my favorite styles of beer and it tends to be done quite traditionally . . . Iím very glad to see a brewer add some of their personality to it. The appearance is a to-style, light, hazy gold. Completely clear and translucent, which may have taken some patience and work to accomplish. The nose is as enticing as anything Iíve ever tried. Sweet pineapple right up at the front, followed by the spicy fruitiness of the ale yeast. The taste is refreshing and phenomenally balanced! I know pineapple can be exceptionally difficult to work with due to all that sugar, but it does not overpower this beer and very much remains as a kolsch should be. Clean finish demonstrates a well lagered brew. Hatís off to this on!

on tap at CCB. Wait.....is that smell, pineapple? The flavor doesnít even have a trace of acidity in it. This beer is one that absolutely will stun you when you first take a whiff of it. Everything about the pineapple in this beer was done right.

Who the hell would have figured a kolsch to get a 4.3? I wouldnít have. This one does. On draft at Hunahpu Day. Pours a yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is big on pineapple, hints of sweetness, and grains. Flavor is similar. Usually Kolsch beers wear their hearts on their sleeves, but this one has secrets, depth, and several dimensions. Please make this again!

POurs a brilliant hazy orange with no head. Nose is HUGE fresh pineapple, hints of sulphur and sweet grains. Flavor is super crisp grain, hints of yeast and loads of fresh pineapple. No pine apple acidity, just pure pineapple sugar. So damn refreshing. Could drink this forever.

Golden pour with a nice white head. This beer had everyone talking. The owner of CCB and his crew were blown away by this one! Aroma is crisp and lightly malty with a perfect amount of pineapple. Flavor is stunning. A pineapple beer done well? Hell no, done to perfection. Crisp, fruity, pineapple goodness. Wow and wow. By far the best Kolsch and pineapple beer Iíve had!
