I CANnot CANtain myself after having returned to The CANQuest (TM) in earnest! I spent most of the Summer of 2014 involved in a Bottle Divestment, which has now been accomplished to my satisfaction.

From the CAN: "Carefully Crafted. Famously Fun."; "A German style wheat beer with strong banana and clove notes from the yeast, and a soft mouthfeel from the high wheat content in the malt bill, with pineapple juice added post-fermentation for a refreshing and unique take on this traditional beer."

How interesting that this is a Pineapple Hefeweizen! Rivertowne Pour House in Da Burgh has been making one for a while and Evil Genius just came out with I Love Lamp.

I Cracked! it open and initiated an inverted Glug, producing a finger of fluffy, bone-white head that quickly fell to wisps. Color was a very cloudy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5). Nose was strong with the pineapple juice and I will take that over the banana esters every day of the week. Mouthfeel was kind of thin and prickly, not at all what I was expecting, based on their verbiage. Taste was definitely banana-ester forward! Man, I wish that they had added more pineapple juice to offset this. Finish was fruity, but really sweet, and I just CAN't get behind it. It would be good in the Summertime or if you have guests who really dig fruit beers, but I am underwhelmed for my part.

Thanks to the incredible woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy, light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of spices, cloves, some banana. Taste is the same, spices, banana, a touch of pineapple, highly refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a tasty and very sessionable beer.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a standard pint glass.
Cloudy lemon color, with a big frothy head of white foam.
Aroma-Wheat, faint fruit note
Taste-Faint banana, clove, wheat, some pineapple essence. Light and refreshing, but kind of middle-of-the-road.

This pours a cloudy, golden yellow color with a thick, foamy head. The aroma is mild with sweet pineapple and wheat. The taste is light, sweet, and full of pineapple flavor. The texture is creamy and very similar to other Wisconsin summer seasonal fruit/wheat beers. Very easy drinking with decent flavor.
