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.

On tap at Ant ’n Bee, August 2013.
Clear golden with a small white head. This was a light one with light hops, pineapple and some citrus. Also some notes of malt. Drinkable and nicely refreshing despite the light body.

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.

Bottle. Hazy, very light yellow colour. Aroma is very strong with pineapple and some yeast in the background. Soft mouthfeel, very light carbonation. Taste has pineapple as expected and some hops. Seems like an alright summer beer.

Bottle. Golden along with a white fluffy head and good lacing. Fresh pineapple on the nose. Raw grain on the palate along with a pineapple candy flavour that’s not for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light yellow color, very bubbly. Aroma of pineapple, malts, and caramel. Relatively light bodied, with rich malts and decent hopping to go with the fruit. Not very sweet at all, and the light fruiting does not overtake the beer-like quality. Very well done, a great summer drink.

Tasted @ GJBF Yokohama: Gold, light head and lacing. Nose of fresh malt and a blended pineapple note. Some clean fruit and malt flavors blend like sweet and sour. Good!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
CANDY! Aroma of caramel, pineapple, honey, fruits, and sugar sweetness. Flavor was an inprovement. Pineapple, caramel malts, sugar, some more candied fruits. Finished with a suprisingly hoppy bitterness compared to the rest of the beer. If the rest of the beer had been like the finish this would be a lot better. Syrupy body. I didn’t think it was as bad as TimE did, but it still needs a bunch of work. Interesting.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep golden color. Pineapple and caramel candy in the nose. Caramel and pineapple mouth, which as you might guess doesn’t really work. A little sweet and syrupy, but overall flavors just don’t mesh.
