This beer smells like you opened a can of pineapple and shoved your face in it. It isn't just there when you're coaxing the smell out of the beer. It pours out of the glass and into your nose while you're drinking the beer. It was quite an experience. I had to get two pours of this one. The golden body with hazy off white foam had a really smooth and well rounded mouthfeel as well. The sourness was not overpowering, and this was the first beer I've had that truly highlighted pineapple. This really was probably the best fruited american wild that I've had. It was exactly that. It wasn't a sour bomb, it wasn't overtly funky, and it wasn't fruity sweet. It was so well balanced and effortlessly drinkable.
