2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at craft beer market jimbocho summer 2014. Served in a half pint glass. Clear golden pineapple yellow color with a small off-white head. Strong pineapple aroma with a hint of clover honey and mint. The aroma is much more pleasing than the taste. Slightly malty and earthy hops present with a rough bitter dry finish. Was expecting something different...pineapple didn’t really shine through much.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Asahiya. 5% served in a tulip. A clear gold with a thick foamy head, a nice aroma of honey, pineapple & grains. Medium to light bodied with a scratchy rough mouthfeel, I want my fruit beers to be softer. The taste is earthy, a bit rough with some pineapple. It is ok but I want it sweeter & smoother closerbyobthe common pineapple beer cocktail in Japan. As it warmed up it gave me a bit more of what I was looking for, more pineapple flavor.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pineapple juice, citrus hop aromas. Tropical fruit flavor, floral hops, bitter dry finish. Promising nose, but then fruitiness is pretty mild versus the overwhelming dry bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at ibrew Ginza. Pale amber/gold colour, small white head. Aroma is pineapple sweets, bit of malt too. Taste pineapple, increasing further down. Quite malty. Bit of yeast. Slight hoppiness. Not bad and quite good on a hot day but not a mind blower.
