Can. So this was a major surprise. The amount of pineapple in the flavor is darn impressive. Tastes like pineapple juice that is a little thin but impressive.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is sweet, fruity and you pickup the pineapple.
Appearance is cloudy yellow like a wit or lemon shandy.
Taste is sweet like malty fruit juice. You can detect the malt and the very slightest hint of a hop.
Palate is light-medium and a little sticky because of the pineapple juice. Starts and ends sweet.
Overall this is a pineapple shandy. Honestly it is kind of unique and could be refreshing by a pool on a summer day. You have to really like pineapple. If it were any other fruit I would rate the beer lower but pineapple beer is something you don’t get to try in a can or even bottle everyday. I hate to like this beer but I really find it pleasing.

12 ounce can
Thanks to whomever gave me a can of this. It was an interesting experiment that went wrong somewhere along the way. More like a fruit cooler than a beer it does not inspire me to grab many more Rivertowne beers except for the Pennsylvania ticks.
Aroma / Appearance - A transparent golden base shimmers and fails to capture much light. A light head falls very quickly to nothing until all the bubbly carbonation is exposed directly to the air. Strong pineapple and citrus stick in the air with hardly any depth. In fact it is almost as bland as a pint of pineapple juice.
Flavor / Palate - Light hops show signs of life that are soon dashed by a heavy hit of pineapple. More fruit juice than beer it lacks any depth. The result is drinkable yet somehow not interesting. If you do have a can share it with three or four people so you have less to drink yourself.

12oz can, a pineapple beer, in my quest for odd fruit flavored beers, I must try this too.. nose is weird pils type with slight hints of pineapple, but definitely not pungent. taste is more of the same, slight hints of pineapple like you would smell if you walked within 10ft of someone eating some.. mostly pils taste, light and bubby with the coloration of pineapple juice but a lot more lively.

Pours pale yellow and cloudy with a fluffy white head. Kind of looks like a wit. Pineapple juice on the nose and tongue. Reminds me of a hard cider.

Very milky yellow colored pour. Big white head that sticks around for a good while. Some lacing left behind. Smells like pineapple juice. Taste is pineapple, fresh cut pineapple. Very nice, but strange.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a very pale yellow with a white head. The aroma is all pineapple, the best part of the beer for me. The flavor is like pineapple juice. A little too much for me. Very thin finish. Not for me.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a pale yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma predominantly pine apple. Taste is a bit like a wine cooler. Strong sweet and then tart notes but not enough of a malt bill to make it taste like craft beer.

From the can. The aroma is sweet pineapple juice. The taste is overly sweet pineapple juice. Is this beer?
