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.

RBSG 2016 Bus share. Can. Cloudy yellow, big juicy pineapple broth, maybe with some malt thrown in there somewhere. Pineapple radler I guess.

Hazy pale yellow color out of the can with a thin white head. Sweet pineapple juice nose. This drinks like pineapple candy. Sweet, fruity,and lively on the tongue. A novelty at best.

appearance: clear gold, short soapy white head. aroma: pineapple, apple juice. taste: pineapple, pineapple syrup. finish: lingering sweetness. notes: Sample draught, glad I didnt get the whole pint. Way too sweet, pineapple felt a little artificial. Nice and unique, but not for me. Cant see how this would be refreshing in summer. Draught at Fins, Cape May vacation 2016.

Sample @ Beers of the Burgh Fest. Pours a clear straw yellow with a large white head of foam. Tart tart sweet aroma of pineapple. Starts out sweet like watered down pineapple juice then ends with a slightly flowery and metallic aftertaste like the acidity from a can. Not as good as I had expected.

This tastes like you took a blond ale and dumped some fresh pineapple juice in it, which is much better than I expected this beer to taste. You get a lot of things and it just tastes like a Jolly Rancher. Its cloudy and yellow w/ a short lived head of fine bubbles. It has a Capn Crunch malt character in the nose and a bit of pineapple. The pineapple comes out much more once you taste it and its got a pretty nice, juicy quality to it. I gotta say I wasnt expecting to like this at all but its actually pretty good.

Clear golden with foamy Lacy white head with streams of bubbles rising through the glass; aroma is rich sweet fruit pineapple reminiscent of Southern Comfort; flava is tangy sweet and tart pineapple with slight hints of grainy wheatiness; feels light with nice fizzy liveliness; finishes sweet tangy pineappley
