3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasting set at the Shirokita Park Fest. The Piineapple is a lovely cloudy soft gold. The nose is sweet pineapple juice. It’s got a med-light bodied with a zesty mouthfeel. The flavor is a nice tart pineapple and some biscuit maltiness. Decent, definitely in the vein of japanese "pine beer" cocktails.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the Ichinoseki Craft Beer Festival, 2009.
Bright, cloudy, glowing yellow. Looks just like pineapple juice. Aroma pineapple, citrus; very fruity, moderately sweet, also pretty dry. No beer aromas. Sweet pineapple flavor. Very pleasant tasting but not at all beer-like. Maybe just a bit of hops detectable. Very pleasant, fruity, cocktail-like flavor, not too sweet, but tastes nothing like beer!
