On draft at Cigar City Brewpub for Fruit in the Room 2014. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Nose is huge pineapple juice and some light malt. Flavor is similar- this one comes off like straight up pineapple juice: light, fruity, and juicy. Interesting beer with lingering pineapple juice in the finish.

Drank from a sampler glass at the Electric City Craft Brew Fest! Strong aromas of pineapple, but the flavor tastes unnatural (thatís a shame!) Pours a hazy, light yellow. I expected more.

Know going in that this is a fruit beer. They arenít trying to fool you into thinking it is a flavored beer. Itís fruit beer. The pineapple is great and true, not a fake syrup or flavor. Itís smooth and great for poolside or the beach. Tap.

Appearance is light hazy yellow. Aroma is of pineapples. Taste is just like pineapple juice. Overall Iím not a big fan of pineapple, so it isnít my favorite.

Twelve ounce can from Rivertowne Paradise sampler 12 pack purchased at Jeffís Marathon, tasted on December 31, 2014. Cloudy yellow hue, sweet and sour smell, mostly pineapple flavor. OK but too sweet for me. May be more to othersí taste. I may be wrong but this drinks like a radler--not the type of beer I would put in a sampler pack but Rivertowne knows what theyíre doing (I guess).

Guest tap @ Point Ybel Brewery. Woah, wow, woah, woah. - Alicia Golden yellow with a very light head and a solid lace. Aroma is almost straight oats with a lot of citrus fruit. Tastes like straight capitain crunch. flat oily body. This is juice not beer.

This more like a malt beverage than a fruit beer. Pineapple taste is the true dominate flavor. Light tasting that is refreshing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Transfer from BA review on 4-8-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance Ė The beer is served a straw yellow color with a tiny white head. The head fades quite fast leaving a small amount of lace on the sides of the glass Smell- The aroma is heaviest of a pineapple which largely dominates the smell. Mixed with it however are some detectable notes of some tangerine and banana. Taste Ė The taste begins very sweet upfront and remains that why throughout. The sweet is largely of pineapple juice with some lighter amounts of a tangerine, orange, and tropical fruit flavors of papaya and banana. Toward the end the pineapple flavor grows even stronger in intensity giving a very pineapple juice like flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer is very thin and watery giving the brew a rather refreshing taste when mixed with the sweeter flavors of pineapple and other tropical fruits. The higher level of carbonation that is present is very nice for the sweet and crisp taste of the brew with the combination of carbonation and thickness making for a rather refreshing feel overall. Overall - The brew has a nice pineapple juice flavor, but is almost too much like pineapple juice for me. It is sweet and refreshing, but not really what I am looking for in a beer. It tastes very much like a sweet hard pineapple juice
