2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours with a mostly clear pale yellow body with a large white head of foam with somewhat pour retention. Flavors are grassy, grainy, citric acid, pineapple, apple esters. Aroma is very similar to cheap champagne (or sparkling wine to be honest). Flavors of canned and somewhat waxy pineapple, grainy, with lots of esters (mainly apple). Lively bubbles and thin. Dry. Not much here.

Bottle at Minneapolis Beer Fest. Light yellow pour, small white head. Aroma and taste was mostly wheat with hints of pineapple. Was hoping this would be better than it was.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine, Roseville. Pours cloudy yellow with a nice white head and a fruity aroma. There is a slightly tart wheat flavor with a noticeable pineapple taste. Not bad for a fruit beer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at Corti Brothers in Sacramento. The aroma is mostly bready and cereal-like with maltiness. A little lemon zest is also appreciated. Scantly metallic. Minimal pineapple. Transparent golden body with a smallish white head present. Starts immediately tart ans astringent. The pineapple flavors come through, which actually gives this a nice little sour kick to it. Finishes with a balancing cereal maltiness that is a bit sweet. Refreshing, and good. The aroma is pretty faint, unfortunately.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Corti Bros. in Sacramento, CA. Pours lightish gold with a transient fizzy white head. Aroma is wheat with a little hard to distinguish fruit. A bit acidic. Med body with foamy carb. The flavor is wheat, with a little pineapple, then it finishes with a huge burst of that acidic pineapple finish - which lingers on. Oddly the flavor is in the finish rather than the beginning. Interesting stuff. Hop seems lost in the surf. Finishes pretty dry, acidic and astringent. The effect is not unlike having eaten fresh, not quite ripe pineapple. Pool drink!
