bottle poured into a snifter. pours a clear golden color with a soapy rim that lasts minutes and leaves no lacings.
aroma is rich, sweet pineapples and a very light funk note right under the fruit. the pineapple is reminiscent of candy-like pineapple flavoring, or overripened pineapples.
taste is more of the same with an overly sweetened profile. the pineapple carries a bit of uniqueness since it is rarely used in brewing, but this could easily be placed next to any number of overly sweetened lambics and it would blend right in.
mouthfeel is medium bodied with a sweet and sticky texture and a semi dry finish of residual fruit.
drinkability is good, but it ends up too sweet. many fruit lambics fit into the overly-sweet category, but this one has a bit of novelty on its side. still, it does fit into that category.
