Yellowish in hue, SanTan Brewing Mr. Pineapple pours to a hazy shade with a good deal of white foam. The nose on this beer is rather subdued, with scents of yeast and sweet fruit. The foam does last the way you like, even if it doesn’t leave much lacing
This SanTan beer offers the taste of wheat, grain, citrus, pineapple, and a touch of yeast. A second sip reveals more flavors such as banana and a touch of clove, similar to the flavor profile of hefeweizen.
Mr. Pineapple is an interesting beer. The greatest surprise is the subtlety of the nose. I poured it expecting a blast of pineapple scent, but the nose doesn’t really smell like pineapples at all. If I didn’t already know, I wouldn’t have guessed, based on scent, that this product contained any pineapple.
On the other hand, the flavor does showcase the pineapple and I like that the brewer didn’t get carried away with the added fruit juice. You can certainly taste pineapple, but it is not overdone in any way. This, combined with the hefeweizen like character and other qualities make Mr. Pineapple a good, refreshing beer for a hot summer day.

Pours a golden color with a slight haze that fell off to reveal perfect clarity by the bottom the glass. The head was scant but creamy white foam that fell with no lace. The nose is crisp wheat, a touch of bread, some grass, and a very light banana and a sweet little bit of pineapple. I think I am s=getting a bit of clove but not too much. Taste is excellent.. A nice sweet pineapple that is not too acidic and not too tart meets a flaked wheat sweetness. That mouthfeel is perfect. A little carbonation to keep it light, creamy, crisp an dry. Juicy middle. The bit of pineapple and banana are just enough to taste and enjoy but nothing that makes the beer too sweet or too much like a hefe. The clove disappeared on the palate for the most part and the hops came up deftly to balance this beer with a graceful bitter that you might not even notice.
Saucy little beer and I really liked it! Thank you Kerry4porters for giving me my first beer from Arizona.

12 oz can pours a barely hazed gold color with a modest cap of white head. Average retention and not much lace.
By the nose, I cant decide if this beer is trying to be an American Wheat or a Hefe. It has just a hint of clove and banana but not as much as most hefeweizens. The pineapple is mild at best, I might have mistook it for more yeast if unaware of what beer it was.
The pineapple is a bit more forward in the flavor, but still blends in with the other yeast flavors...this is definitely more of a hefe than APW I think. There is some definite yeasty phenols going on here - bubblegum and clove more than sweet banana. Wheat is fair enough, could be a little more snappy. Mouthfeel is decent - kind of like the beer overall - does the job but is not really all that memorable. I know pineapple is a tough ingredient to work with in a beer, but I dont see myself buying this again. If asked about pineapple beer, I would steer people to Rivertowne Hala Kahiki first.
