COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mr Pineapple was conceived for SanTan Brewing Company’s annual Luau day here in Downtown Chandler. Fresh pineapple is added to our Wheat beer during fermentation to add a refreshing tropical flavor to an already sweet and fruity ale! The pineapple is balanced with a firm malt character and a slightly spiced hint of clove. Mr. Pineapple is highly carbonated to make it a quenching and refreshing ale for our warm Arizona climate.

For what it is and aspires to, a good beer. Surprisingly clear pour, with some tropical fruit smells wafting up. Good wheat-style taste, with fruity tropical flavors (presumably pineapple). Sweet lingering malt. Had this on tap last year, and this strikes me as the same as that. A good, lower ABV fun summer beer, with solid taste that is not as light as I was fearing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Yard House and Ground Control. It seems to me that everyone who rates this from draft really likes it and the canned ratings are lower. Moral of the story: drink it on tap if you can find it. A nice base wheat ale that has buckets of pineapple in it. Real pineapple flavor and not like they just dumped a bunch of chemical flavoring into it. Very refreshing.

Can. Bright orange pour with a large white head. Smells like a saison. More bland on the taste. Good for the style.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 Sample from a can at Total Wine beer tasting class on canned beers. Surprisingly good; I?d like to try more of this. I expected pineapple to overwhelm but I think it mixed well with the wheat style. Pineapple is present, of course, but seemed natural. Update: had a can of this (poured into a glass); enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I have mixed feelings about fruit beers but this is refreshing. A friend had a can and said he could barely finish it but I rather liked it. Probably Wouldn?t want more than one in a sitting, however. Update: I had a can poured into a glass. I’m a fan. San Tan is becoming my favorite AZ brewery.

Drank from pilsner glass poured from can. Aroma - dead on with wheat and pineapple aroma. Appearance - murky golden orange with thick froth. Taste - sweet pineapple and wheat flavors. Fairly smooth. Palate - very bitter/sweet mouthfeel. Overall - pretty good. Probably will not buy again

alexanderj (3343) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle; poured a dull, fairly dark gold. Aroma of pineapple, wheat, and flowers. Flavor had a nice bubblegum component, but it was all too subdued. Not sure the pineapple was a great addition, but it was not a bad beer overall.

On tap at SanTan Brewery in Chandler, AZ. Hazy orange color with a citrus aroma. The pineapple definitely shone through, which was exactly what I was expecting. The pineapple slice was a nice touch. Not usually my type of beer but can see enjoying one of these on a hot summer day.

joet (2228) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Cloudy golden with large pollowy white head. Dusty hop aromas, maybe Czech, Belgian yeast, fruit esters, apple, phenols, a touch of clove, pineapple, creamy and spritzy texture. A bit high in alcohol for session but thirst quenching. With high acidity for rapid absorption. Pretty and nice on a hot day.

Draft at mellow mushroom Tempe. Pours golden and clear with a massive white head. Slight yeast and pineapple notes on the nose. There’s some pineapple on the tongue as well which powers out some of the other flavors. Finishes clean.
