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.

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

Slightly hazy yellow with nice head that holds on for a while. Was expecting a pineapple overload but was happy not to get that. Only a small hint of pineapple in the aroma and only a small amount in the taste wich made this one very enjoyable on a hot afternoon. Other than the mild pineapple there is the destinct flavors of wheat and clove that is expected from this style of brew. Good stuff that I plan to purchase again.

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

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.

Pours a nice hazy straw golden color with white head. Pineapple, wheat, and tropical light fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a pineapplely raw wheat note. Nice.

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.

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!

I didn’t like this beer 2 years ago. It wasn’t good at all last year. It is REALLY good this year. Man, that is like a carbonated pineapple juice. Mr. Pineapple makes for the perfect summer beer. Cheers to the team at SanTan Brewing.

Tap at T&P. Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a light head. Aroma is wheat, light fruit and tart notes. Very tingly over the palate. Nice pineapple flavor balances well here. Sweet finish. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
