3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ripe pineapple nose, some soft wheat. Deep gold color, slightly hazy, thick fluffy head. Slight wheat biscuit, huge pineapple flavor, mild bitterness, no hop flavor or aroma, balance is to the pineapple, but it works. Big carbonation, lightish body, mouth feel is a little slick with a coating of pineapple juice type of feel, finish is crisp, with pineapple flavor lingering. Fruity beers are probably my least favorite, but this one is executed nicely, the pineapple presence is unbelievable, this would pair so well with Thai food or Polynesian cuisine, definitely worth trying.
Poured from can.
AROMA - canned pineapple (a plus).
APPEARANCE - golden amber, hardly any head
FLAVOR - dry wheat, pineapple, apple juice, hint of spice.
PALATE - not too tart, but wish it had more of a creamy texture.
OVERALL - I would not buy again

Pineapple. Dough. Clove. Some other tropical fruit. Cloudy honey gold with a bright white head. Fades to a thin film on the surface. Clove. Grass. Medium bodied. A little bitter on the finish which seems out of place. There's just a little hint of sweetness.

Pours a hazy golden with a white foam head. Aroma is sweet pineapple and wheat. Flavor leans more towards the wheat, but the pineapple is still prominent. Sweet. Well-carbonated and crisp. Overall nice and refreshing, especially on this unusually warm September day. Obfuscate (593) - Minneapolis, - SEP 4, 2017
I really like this. Should be under wheat category though. A very solid wheat with some clean pineapple goodness. Not quite Hunny Do and that's local but this is good. Great summe r brew.

Pineapple Mana - hazy gold color; mild fruity aroma with hints of pineapple; a light wheat beer with pineapple notes; light and refreshing; probably good at the beach, but not really a beer I'd go out of my way for superspak (5891) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2017
12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 7/3/2017. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy medium golden/yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of pineapple, peach, pear, red apple, light banana/clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, pineapples, bready malt, and moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of pineapple, peach, pear, red apple, light banana/clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness; and slight tart/tangy wheat/fruit on the finish. Lingering notes of pineapple, peach, pear, red apple, light banana/clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pineapples, bready malt, and moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitter/spiciness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a nice fruited pale wheat ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pineapples, bready malt, and moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/spicy finish. Very well balanced between all flavors. Pineapple wasn't huge, but adequate. Nice hop presence for the style. Nice levels of American wheat yeast character, and balanced malts with no residual sweetness. A nicely enjoyable offering. rumproasts (5592) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2017
Can. Lightly hazy golden with one finger head. Maybe a hint of pineapple in the aroma, but that's where it ends. Dull wheat beer with some mild indistinct fruitiness. I love pineapple, but this didn't deliver. bulldogops (2726) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2017
Rating #2573 - 2016.05.13 - @yegbeerschool event. Pours a clear golden yellow with a little haziness. Bubbly white head dissipates quickly. Aroma is full-on pineapple. Not going to Dole out too many superlatives here (i think i use this with every pineapple beer, fuck I’m predictable) as this is fairly two-dimensional, but this is fairly easy drinking and delivers enough hefeweizen haze to keep my interest. bosslej (1) - - AUG 2, 2017 does not count
Nice flavor, hint of pineapple but not overly fruity. Would recommend for someone who likes a standard pilsner or light beer.
