3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle huge thanks to Dmac. Pours out a clear, golden color with a two-finger fluffy white head. aroma is of fruity yeast, subtle sweet pineapple, light bitterness, and some artificial lime syrup. Taste is fruity yeast, some light grains, spice, subtle pineapple, artificial citrus sweetener, like you’d find in an over-sugared kid’s drink, some dry, lightly boozy notes on the finish. Lime was more in the forefront here than the pineapple, non the less definitely interesting.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from batch #200 at Kurtkeller 004: Pipeworks-tastic 01 on 01/18/2014. The beer is a hazy straw color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pineapple, malt and yeast. Full-bodied with flavors of tropical fruit, yeast and grainy malt. The finish is fruity with a subtle pineapple and yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle via trade. Poured a nice looking hazy golden body with an average sized to smaller bright white foamy head. Aroma is bready, Belgian yeast, lime, pineapple skins, dough, dry flowers and honey. Palate is big, only a medium body but with tight fizzy body that really fizzises up. Flavor is the same as tie aroma, lime, dry bread, Belgian yeast, touch of pineapple rind, toast and grains. Okay, was hoping for a bit more.

Cloudy gold color with a single finger head. Aroma of pineapple and grain. Light mouth. Pineapple and lime taste with a lingering sweetness. Slightly funky barnyard action in there too. Some farmhouse funk. Alcohol is hidden well.

Picked up a bomber @ binny’s while in chicago visiting my sister. I just loved the label. Turns out the beer is really good too. The pineapple flavor is sort of subdued and more implied. So it wasn’t as overpowering sweet as I thought it might. Pretty fun tasting new stuff in a new town.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle. Pours a hazy, straw color. Nose is a combination of Belgian clovey-banana notes, and that pissy/grassy German hoppy-metallic aroma common in a lot of import lagers. Mouth is medium bodied and creamy, semisweet and chock full of yeast fruitiness, lime and pineapple creeping up midrange towards the top of the palate, then a pleasant bready finish with very mild bitterness. Odd beer overall, but decent. The ABV incidentally is very well hidden.
