Hazy pale golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of strong pineapples, toast, and lacto funk. Taste of citrus, vanilla, and sweeter pineapples, with a tart finish.

I had this one as well at Devil’s Den during Philly Beer Week. Unlike the Passion Fruit version, this one was like a nice Berliner Weiss with a great Pineapple flavor, as opposed to straight up Pineapple Juice. Awesome!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft… Berliner Bash on the Bay 2012… This beer rocks!… Pours a hazy off-white with a small, creamy, white head. Loads of pineapple in the aroma with a mere hint of grapefruit. Medium-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor offers huge pineapple, medium to heavy acidity and low to no sweetness. Finishes bristly and dry. World class brew!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Peg’s Berliner Bash. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a nice golden color with a bit of a head. Nose has pineapple and a slight bit of cheesiness in the background. Flavor has tropical pineapple character plus light wheat and a touch of acidity from the base plus a bit of pineapple acidity. Light body. Good, not great.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy straw-yellow body, medium sized white head that stuck around for a few minutes before crashing. Ripe pineapple, it has a freshly chopped bite to it. Flavor is dominated by a nice juicy pineapple character. Acidic, but lacking the refreshing tartness and wheat character that would transform this from alcoholic pineapple juice into a true pineapple berliner. Light bodied, moderate carbonation. Certainly an interesting and enjoyable effort, but it falls far short of what it "could have been."
