Crisp and refreshing, The pineapple is very apparent in the nose, but not too overwhelming on the palate, great on a hot day!

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.

On tap at Tommy Bahamas in Scottsdale. This is a great hot summer day beer clean crisp and refreshing finish. No need to add any additional fruit it has it all built in. Some he as can be bitter but this one is not. Great compliment to seafood.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 fl oz / 355mL can into a Sam Adams glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Delicious crisp pineapple! Mildly sweet aroma. Subtle spice package backing it up.
Appearance: Slightly hazy dark yellow with a sudsy white head that lingers quite a bit.
Taste: BAM PINEAPPLE! Goes really, really well with that spice package. Delicious delicious delicious.
Palate: Crisp, refreshing. Pretty short finish. Light, but not watery. Definite character.
Overall: The perfect beer for hot summers here in AZ. Cans make it pool-lake friendly, so that’s a definite plus. Try it with a slice of pineapple! Fantastic!

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 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.

Tap at the brewery. Rating #29. Hazy golden pour with a nice white head. Nice aroma, plenty of pineapple and wheat. Flavor is similar, more pineapple and a light aftertaste. Good stuff. (2757)

On draught at SanTan. Pours a cloudy and murky yellow similar to widmer’s hefeweizen. Aroma banana, pineapple, wheat. Taste is sweet with some pineapple and a touch of bitterness. Not getting a ton of pineapple, but it is there. Medium bodied and a bit dry. Not bad, but was hoping for a bigger pineapple presence.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 Re-rated out of the can, Hazy orange pour with some good pineapple and clove on the nose. Definitely more pineapple in the flavor than in prior years. It is still subtle, but tasty. A nice refreshing summer wheat beer.
