3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can 35.5 cl bought @ Bir&Fud Bottega (Rome, Italy). Fresh and pleasant aroma of pineapple juice, wheat, banana, sugar. Golden appearance almost pale. Something wheaty, pineapple again, salt and spice in a light body with a very little bitter (resinous) and so short finish. Boring, confirmation of my so poor enthusiasm for wheat ales.

Brewed with Maui Gold pineapples... Aroma of pineapple, tastes extremely refreshing, very noticeable notes of pineapple and wheat, probably top 10 wheat beers I’ve had... Had it on draft at the brewery... Also had it in a can in Las Vegas, shockingly disappointing in comparison, really doesn’t translate well at all....

GABF 2011. Hazy orangish gold with a small tight white cap. Aroma of mango and pineapple with wheat. Nice light flavor profile, crisp and clean. Taste has perhaps too much fruit on it (pineapple), leaving the wheaty nuances overshadowed. Not a great fruit beer, but not bad or offensive, just a little too sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned at Stockholm Beer Festival. Hazy deep golden, mid sized head. Fruity nose with banana and pineapple. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Flavour of canned pineapples. Simple, but unusually functional wheat based fruit beer. Probably more befitting an Hawaiian beach than a Scandinavian exhibition area in late October...

I’m not a fan of wheats but this beer is exceptional. The pineapple adds a touch of sweetness that balances the beer out really well.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nearly opaque tangerine colour with a frothy white head that fades to a thin film and ring. The aroma is estery and uber tropical with potent pineapple, impressions of apricot, savory wheat, and other stone fruits. The flavour is not as intense as the aroma might suggest, but refreshing, fruity (like fruit roll-up fruity), and slightly boozy, which is concerning considering the 5.5% abv. As a summer slammer, this is top notch. As a savory sipper, it’s a bit thin-bodied and the finish is too short.
