Poured from a bomber into a tulip- pours a hazy golden yellow/orange color with one finger of bone white head, modest retention and lacing.
Smell is wonderfully tart- some funk, some citrus a bit of hops. Nothing complex, just a plain old good tart smelling golden ale.
Taste is a different story- pineapple juice comes through strong at the beginning and throughout. A slight hop bitterness after the initial pineapple note, which gives way to a slight funky yeast tartness, then back to the pineapple and candi sugar to finish sweet, but by no means sickeningly sweet.
Mouthfeel is very nice and different than usual- I'm ordinarily a big fan of prickly carbonation, especially with belgians, but this one works nicely without the pinpricks. Medium bodied, light carbonation, milky pineapple feel on the tongue. This is a wonderful brew and I felt that way from the first sip. I would recommend buying it if you find it- I plan on obtaining another bottle.
