Bad. Bad. Bad. Is this really even a beer? I don’t think so. Looks bad and taste bad.

Appearance is light hazy yellow. Aroma is of pineapples. Taste is just like pineapple juice. Overall I’m not a big fan of pineapple, so it isn’t my favorite.

Twelve ounce can from Rivertowne Paradise sampler 12 pack purchased at Jeff’s 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 others’ 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 they’re doing (I guess).

Can poured a clear yellow wioth a small lingering white head. Aromas of bread, pineapple and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, pineapple and light earthiness with a crisp lingering pineapple finish.

can. Golden with two finger head. Sweet pineapple with prickly carbonation. Doesn’t seem particularly beer-like, but it’s plenty pleasant.

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.

Can. Pretty much pineapple juice start to finish with a really unpleasant funk in the taste. Not good.

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 – 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

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.
