Draft at Bainbridge. Pours a murky light yellow with tiny white head and minimal lace. Notes of vanilla cake batter, mild pineapple. Cloyingly sweet.

Draft at the source. Cloudy gold color with lasting head. Aroma is off the chain crazy. Pineapple cake indeed!! Wow... The flavor is sweet sugar upfront turning into a pineapple and sweet malt that gives a blonde cake batter. It’s pretty wild that it does taste like pineapple cake, tasty and I could pound this at 5%. Just crushable if you enjoy pineapple.

Sample draft at Hunahpu day 2015. Incredible aroma of fresh juicy pineapple and cake batter. Some cinnamon is added in the taste. Very odd but, good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one poured a oretty clear pineapple yellow color with a white head. Aroma was just wat I was hopeng for, pineapple, light coconut, caramel and toast. Flavor was rum soaked cake, pineappled and coconut. Not sure how they managed this one, but it was awesome.

Had this as part of a flight at the brewery. Clear light golden pour with a small creamy white head. Pineapple, vanilla, sugar, pie crust. Flavor is big pie crust, some pineapple I guess, light malts, sweet whipped cream. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Easy drinking. Neat. Gets very sweet as you get into this one. 3 or 4 oz is enough and could be had for dessert. I do wonder though whether these guys just squirt some flavoring into their Helles.

Would have been nice as a sour or IPA or something. It's good, sweet, but very thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at CCB. Love the smell of pineapples and it actually has the cake smell to it. Pour yellow haze with a white head. Taste citrus, pineapples, very little malt which gives it the bread/cake favor. Nice beer to enjoy anytime.

Damico (2952) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Pours golden with light haziness and a huge frothy creamy white head. Aroma brings sweet vanilla and the cake is moreso noticeable than pineapple, but it is there for sure. Flavor has big vanilla and sweet cake and pinepple notes, quite delightful. Body is not too crispy, but full for sure.

Tap with Tom at Bainbridge. Pours hazy yellow with ok head and lacing. Notes are heavy butter, vanilla, cake, and a touch of pineapple. Light, sweet, and disappointing for me. Might have been better as a wheat ale or something. Was looking forward to this one...oh well.
