Bomber from Hayduke. We enjoyed it together via facebook chat. This was filtered and no sediment or yeast to be found and the beer was clear golden. A big white head fell at a decent pace. Both the nose and flavor was wheat and pineapple. Hops were definitely light and added a bit of brightness and a tinge of bitterness. Just a hint of wheat. Wheat and pineapple are the story here. The pineapple was a different take on the wheat fruit theme and it is nice. It works pretty well. It is nice. An uncomplicated lawn mowing beer.

22oz bottle. Rating #11. Clear, medium golden pour with a white head. Light fruity aroma, citrusy more than pineapple. Picking up a little pineapple in the flavor, but just ever so slightly, acidic with a wheat finish. Decent. (2136)

Bottle at Minneapolis Beer Fest. Light yellow pour, small white head. Aroma and taste was mostly wheat with hints of pineapple. Was hoping this would be better than it was.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a mostly clear pale yellow body with a large white head of foam with somewhat pour retention. Flavors are grassy, grainy, citric acid, pineapple, apple esters. Aroma is very similar to cheap champagne (or sparkling wine to be honest). Flavors of canned and somewhat waxy pineapple, grainy, with lots of esters (mainly apple). Lively bubbles and thin. Dry. Not much here.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 This is not Jeremys best effort, not sure where he was going with this beer. It reminds me more of a sauv blanc. Gets an a for effort. But maybe needs to rethink the recipe on this one.
