3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

This more like a malt beverage than a fruit beer. Pineapple taste is the true dominate flavor. Light tasting that is refreshing

Transfer from BA review on 4-8-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – 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 – 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 – 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

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce can poured into a snifter. Pours a pale, hazy yellow with a white head of foam that dissipates down to a thin layer. The aroma is funky, musty, metallic pineapple. Kind of like what you get from the canned pineapple juice you can buy. The taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, but its a little more of the pineapple rind. Medium carbonation and a somewhat prickly mouthfeel. Not an overly enjoyable beer, but not a drainpour either.

12oz can. Poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Juicy pineapples - pineapple juice. I’m not too crazy about pineapples, but if you are, you would probably like this a bit more than me.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz can. Nose is pineapple juice and sugary Belgian fruit beer mess, Pours lightly hazy but very pale yellow with strong carbonation and a very white, clinging head. Taste very sugary-sweet, OK cloying, with some jolly ranchers and jammy berry alongside the strong pineapple. Not sure about artifice vs nature. Crisp full body, slightly slimy/wheaty, dash of malt here and there, surprisingly isn’t making me wretch! Which is a compliment here.
This one does taste really fresh despite being an old can, and I’d probably have another - definitely enjoyed this one!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is actually pretty good. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head. A big fruity pineapple nose. Bready straw base, massive sweet pineapple juice. Sugary. Fine for what it is.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Hazy to cloudy yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of pineapple. Taste is pineapple soda. More soda than beer.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pale golden color with a finger of gaseous foam. Nose is straight pineapple juice with a hint of cracker malt. Palate follows and is pretty sweet and full of pineapple... it ebbs and flows from decent to not very good. Lots of kolsch qualities with pure pineapple juice up front.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy straw with a small white head. Aroma is dominated by pineapple with some hints of caramel. Taste is sweet, medium bodied with sticky finish. Interesting and I can see why it has such polarizing ratings...if you don’t like lots of pineapple you certainly won’t like this.
