(12oz can) Clear, very light gold pour, lasting filmy/coating fine white bubbles. Nose of fresh pineapple, wheat, fresh cracked grain, light stone fruit, and subtle spices. Taste is on the sweet side, but really, it’s a pineapple beer... shouldn’t it be? Taste reminds me of canned pineapple but in a good way, very much tastes like fruit, wheat, lightly spiced but only on the finish, bits of pineapple pulp (in taste, not texture), and perhaps a tiny bit of tartness lingering around too. Much better than I expected it to be, and quite refreshing. Probably wouldn’t down a 6-pack at one sitting, but 2-3 while out doing yard work? Absolutely.

This poured a hazy yellow color, pretty reminiscent of Pineapple juice, with a white ead. Aroma was pineapples, lemon zest, and wheat. Flavor was again lots of pineapple, not artificial at all, with nice grainy malt notes too. Different and impressive for this type of beer.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2013 4 OZ sampler draft. Hazy yellowish white color. Big pineaplle aroma. Taste is medium sweetness. Fresh tasting pineapple flavors. Definitey worth trying; A great attempt on a fruit beer. Rerate 3/20/13: Out of a can this time. Doesn’t taste as fresh this time out of can versus from tap. Taste is more artificial too. Still, it is a pretty good fruit beer.

It’s pineapple beer! Whatever mad genius thought this up deserves a nobel prize. Pours like a Hefeweizen with a thin white head. You definitely get the big pineapple on the nose. You also get tge big pineapple on the tongue. The miracle here, and what separates this stuff from champale, is the fact it isn’t the least bit cloying. Well done!

From growler. Great fruity pineapple aroma, estery and tropical. Sweet with little hop character, but there is a light undertone of something other than pineapple. Cloudy pale golden, like watery pineapple juice, topped with white head. Medium watery body with medium to high carbonation. Starts sweet with fresh pineapple juice and mild fruity bitterness. Light tang and good sugary pineapple flavor, but not overwhelming. Great quencher and nice introduction beer for those who might not have tried something like this. Mild hop and pineapple finish, with mild bitterness. Smooth fruity sweet after.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2011 sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a hazy bright pineapple-golden color with a trace of a white head. The aroma was faint sweet and tangy pineapple. The flavor was strong sweet pineapple with a tangy and tart undertone. The finish was long with tangy pineapple. The mouthfeel was moderately thick. One dimensional but oh what a dimension. Lovely.

If you like pineapple juice then this is your summer brew. Very distinctive citrus and pineapple flavor, plus aroma that’s all pineapple. this could be a morning drink, (heck, it’s noon somewhere in the world). Someone who doesn’t care for beer may love this fruity beer. For me, one glass was satisfying, then on to the real beers.

Pours a very hazy straw pineapple color with a frothy white head. Aroma is all sweet pineapple juice. This beer is remarkably refreshing. The pineapple is sweet and juicy, but the sweetness is not cloying. I get a little grain in the finish as well. It is light and very well balanced. Done very well.

11/13/07 - Sample at Pourhouse. Looks like pineapple juice. Tastes like pineapple juicew/ a hint of ber. Smel like pineapple. not really a "berrie" beer", but it’s pretty dam good. I don’t think I could have more than a couple, but it’d be interesting to know how they made it.
