look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours opaque dirty yellow verging on gold. Thin white head, rapidly dissipating with no lacing left behind.
On the nose it has lots of pineapple, some clove and assorted citrus.
Tastes of pineapple, banana, some cloves and hints of wheat.
Overall, super-quaffable tasty summer beer, and above the average of what you'll find on most patios. Glad I bought 2.

Hazy pale golden orange colour, 2.5 fingers of white head, good lace. Smell is citrusy, banana and pineapple, wheat, mildly yeasty points with a bit of clove and spice. Taste is milder than the nose, banana with subtle citrus, clove and yeasty flavours mid palate, pineapple and banana aftertaste. Medium carbonation, medium body. Pretty good, would make a great warm weather beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

650ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $5.50 or so

Appearance - Gold colour with a large size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Banana, pineapple, breads/grains

Taste & Mouth - There is a average amount of carbonation and I can taste banana, breads/grains, and some floral notes. There is also pineapple, some yeasty notes, and a bit of a peppery spice mix.

Overall - The pineapple/fruity flavours are borderline cloying at times, but it is definitely an interesting beer. Not an every day beer but something that is worth trying for sure. It doesn't taste all that artificial as some fruit beers do.

I'd say this is more of a fruit beer than a true hefe... though it certainly has more malt character than a Radler.

I though the first batch had a little too much pineapple acidity, but now I'd say it's a wonder summer session brew.

Hazy straw, nice white head, leaves some good lace. Pineapple is certainly apparant in the aroma & flavour; some vanilla; hint of banana, not much clove to mess with the fruit. I like it.

Moderate body has a refreshing acidity.

Pineapple, eh? Interesting choice of fruit. Makes sense with the style of beer though, so let's dive in.

Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a couple fingers of very dense looking head. For some reason I was expecting this beer to be much brighter looking than this. Oh well.

The scent is just "holy pineapple, batman" with some subtle citrus undertones and some banana aromas as well. It is unfair to expect the beer to smell like fresh pineapple and still taste like.. beer, although I think the brewers did a fine job here - the pineapple smell is fruity and inviting. The taste is very good - powerful pineapple taste, which is what I was expecting, was delivered. The best thing about this beer for me is that it isn't sweet. This is a problem with some other fruit beers like say, Aprikat, which is still a fine beer, but is also very sweet which isn't my cup of tea. There is some strong carbonation on the tongue, although I think that is needed to somewhat balance out the fruit flavour in the beer. It drinks extremely easily - you can take a big gulp of it with no unpleasant facial expressions to be had. Overall, this is a really good fruit beer which delivers on its marketed fruit taste, and yet has very little sweetness to it, which makes it taste like a good beer. Nicely done.

Poured from a 355ml bottle. Pours a cloudy bright yellow colour. There are some really nice aromas of fruity bubblegum and pineapple on the nose, so you get a nice combination of the hefe and pineapple juice. Taste is even more complex with notes of stone fruit, clove, banana and pineapple. The carbonation is effervescent and refreshing and it has a nice dry finish. This is a great summer brew.

330ml bottle. Nothing further that might be revelatory on the neck-only label, other than the suggestion of a stoned-out waning moon.

This beer pours a cloudy pale golden yellow hue, with three fingers of puffy silken foamy off-white head, which leaves at least a half-turn of honeycombed lace around the glass as it steadily recedes.

It smells quite forwardly of a freshly sliced pineapple fruitiness, which more or less overwhelms the barely perceptible yeast, banana, and coriander essences, all except for the semi-sweet pale wheat graininess, which comes through unscathed. The taste is more barely adulterated pineapple, a heftier grainy wheat malt, and burgeoning yeast, clove, and banana chip esters.

The bubbles are fairly sublimated, the body a decent fruit-abetted medium weight, and adequately smooth, with a hint of creaminess in and about. It finishes on the dry side, weirdly, as the pineapple flips to its rather tame acidic side, and the endemic spices take minor advantage of such.

A pleasant enough fruited up version of a venerable old-world style, respect being duly paid, even if the guest star is just a little too adulated and adored. Summery as all get out, and balanced enough to engender at least another round or two, patio conditions pending.
