Can to snifter. Looks decent; a slightly cloudy light gold with thin white lacing. Smells like pineapple juice and baby shit. Tastes like pineapple juice; no baby shit though. Average on the palate. Not my thing.

12oz can, shared. Mostly hazy pale whitish yellow color. Thin ring of white head. Couple bits of lace. Big canned pineapple juice in the nose. Flavor is kind of like a pineapple soda. I like it. Moderate sweet taste, lightly zesty. Some sugary sweetness. Light to medium body, smooth, kind of crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Good, enjoyable stuff. It is what it is. Pineapple beer. A pretty well-done fruit-forward pineapple beer, not bad...

Draft at hunahpu day 2014. This one really shocked me. Slightly hazy pour, medium yellow in color. Medium sized white head. Nose is straight up pineapple and sugar. Would live a candle like this. Not much else in the nose. Taste is mostly pineapple with some residual sweetness but not at all cloying or offputting. Moderate carbonation helps to break up the mouthfeel and keep this beer thirst quenching. Very nice offering.

12oz can, received as an extra in trade. Thanks Dan! Pours a bright, crystal clear, pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma is fruity, tropical, pineapple. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, hay, some light grass, pineapple, a little nutty, with a very mild pineapple finish. Refreshing. The Aroma is better than the taste.

On draft at Cigar City Brewpub for Fruit in the Room 2014. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Nose is huge pineapple juice and some light malt. Flavor is similar- this one comes off like straight up pineapple juice: light, fruity, and juicy. Interesting beer with lingering pineapple juice in the finish.

I could drink a sixer of this beer any day. It’s a pineapple beer. plain and simple. Good.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Can. Pours a clear pale yellow body with a minimal wispy white head that completely vanished. The nose is really heavy on the pineapple scent. Smells more like a can of fresh pineapple than it does a beer. The flavor is pretty much like the aroma, really heavy on the pineapple, but it’s not overly sweet or clingy, so it’s got that going for it. Some pale malt below the fruit if you use your imagination a little. Light bodied with soft minimal carbonation. It’s actually pretty refreshing and tasty if you aren’t looking for a serious beer.

Can. Very pale yellow. Really nice pineapple aroma. Malty pineapple flavor and that’s about it. Too sweet for me.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Rcvd in trade. Reviewed from notes. The appearanace is a hazy blond/yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head that levels off and dies at a nice pace leaving a clingy sort sporadic lacing. The smell has some pure pineapple notes dominating the entire aroma all the way through, some light malts come through. The taste is the pineapple drastically in front and nothing else; pineapple aftertaste with a dry pineapple finish. On the palate, well, it sits about a light to medium but the pineapple juice does actually create something that does sit just a tad heavier, still somewhat sessionable, carbonation is fairly smooth Overall, I say a pretty good "fruit/vegetable" beer, I think I would have again, but most likely I’d seek again in the summer time as this one just seems to want to provide a refreshing aspect.

12 ounce can received in a trade with jdb288. This beer pours clear and has no head or visible carbonation. Pineapple in the aroma along with just a bit of malts. The flavor is pineapple juice. Those light malts. Just a bit of fizz to the feel. This is very refreshing and light drinking. It would make an ideal lawn mower beer. Better drinking than it scores.
