Pineapple mmmm...Fruit in the Room 2011. I was glad this was on the list. Smelled like acidic pineapples and sour apples with a touch of malt in the background. The pineapple was very prominent and was incredibly fresh smelling. Poured a hazy dark yellow with a light white head. Tasted of fresh pineapples and some slight sourness with a hint of malt. Pretty good and refreshing, just a touch too sour for me but only by a little bit.

Holy Poppin Pineapples, Batman! Probably one of the most creative and well executed kolsches I’ve ever tried. This is one of my favorite styles of beer and it tends to be done quite traditionally . . . I’m 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 I’ve 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. Hat’s off to this on!

Pours with a nice thick white head, with a wonderful hit of boat loads of pineapple in the nose with a touch of earthy hops in the background. Ah the pineapple comes through in waves this time around, followed by the bitterness of the hops and a bit of malt in the back end. This thing is a super lawn mower beer for sure.

Very fitting for a hot summer day. A nice golden yellowish pour. Thin white head with nice lacing. Pineapple really shines and comes through in a big way. A hint of bitterness comes through, but not in a off manor. JW has reopened my eyes to a style that I had pretty much written off. Another great job.

Yaaaaaaa Buddie! Summer is here and this is the Beer of Choice!!
The nose was amazing pineapple all day! The Balance on the beer couldn’t 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.
