First had this beer in a can last year at the AmeriCan Beer Fest in Chandler AZ. Found out they were doing it as a seasonal, and was really excited about it. Had it on tap at the brewery on Sunday, and it wasn't as good as I remembered, but then shared the growler 3 days later, and what a difference 3 days made!
Pours a dark yellow color with a fantastic head that looks like whipped cream. Lots of bubbles rising to the top.
Smells mostly like wheat, with just touch of pineapple.
Taste like freshly baked bread with pineapple instantly following. What sets this apart to me is that it takes the sweet side of the pineapple that nicely compliments the sour of the beer.
Mouthfeel is just about perfect. Nice carbonation, not too sharp. Creamy with a dry finish.
Overall, This is a must try if you like the style. Highly drinkable and really tasty.

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.
