Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. This wheat/fruit beer pours a very clear light orange color with a big white head and almost no lacing. The nose is wheat with some pineapple and just a hint of floral hops. Medium plus in body it has that sticky wheat character in the mouth. The flavor is mostly wheat with a reasonable amount of pineapple. The pineapple is even more pronounced in the finish which also shows a dry tartness. This a better than average fruit beer and really easy drinking. A perfect summer beer.

Bomber from Hayduke. We enjoyed it together via facebook chat. This was filtered and no sediment or yeast to be found and the beer was clear golden. A big white head fell at a decent pace. Both the nose and flavor was wheat and pineapple. Hops were definitely light and added a bit of brightness and a tinge of bitterness. Just a hint of wheat. Wheat and pineapple are the story here. The pineapple was a different take on the wheat fruit theme and it is nice. It works pretty well. It is nice. An uncomplicated lawn mowing beer.

22 oz bottle. It pours a very nice clear golden yellow with a decent white head. The aroma has a nice balance of fresh wheat, pineapple and honeydew. The flavor is refreshingly tart with some mouthwatering pineapple and a good bready wheat base. Almost a tad spicy with really nice wheat malt and mild hop in the finish. There’s some mild fruity tartness and almost a pinot grigio like character to this beer. I was skeptical with this concept especially since I haven’t had much luck with bottles from this brewer, but this was a resounding success. One of the best fruit/wheat beers I’ve had.

Bottle from Total Wine for $1.99. This was a pretty damn good little beer. Aroma was wheat, an flavor was a fizzy tropical wheat beer with unique but effective palate. Not a big beer, but I would definitely buy more at this price. It's cheaper than a liter bottle of soda at 7-11. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled on 2/28/2012. This fruit beer pours a light orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, sweet, pineapple and spicy. A medium to light bodied fruit beer. The malts are cereal, wheaty and sweet. With a very semi-sweet, semi-tart pineapple flavor. The hops are herbal and spicy. Decent carbonation. Interesting beer. The pineapple flavors bring a tartness and sweetness to the wheat beer. The pineapple flavor is much more evident in the finish. Gives the beer a nice dry, slightly tart finish. Its more saison or wheat like than wheat like. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly tart.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JAN 26, 2012
22oz bottle. Rating #11. Clear, medium golden pour with a white head. Light fruity aroma, citrusy more than pineapple. Picking up a little pineapple in the flavor, but just ever so slightly, acidic with a wheat finish. Decent. (2136)

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 This is not Jeremys best effort, not sure where he was going with this beer. It reminds me more of a sauv blanc. Gets an a for effort. But maybe needs to rethink the recipe on this one.
