Bottle: Poured a light hazy orangey color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aromas of wheat malt with some notes of pineapple are quite singular. Taste is also a mix between some sweet wheat malt notes with some pineapple juice which more or less works well together. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Not sure what to make of this experiment but probably won’t seek again.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle poured into tulip 15/5/13

A hazy bright yellow with enough clarity to see a few bubbles floating up to a thumbs width of foam that quickly falls to a thin film leaving a few random patches of lace. I expect more foam and retention from the style but decent nonetheless

S fresh pineapples strong almost overwhelming the Hefe aspects, there's still some clove, banana, lemon, and some dry cereal but pineapples in charge and I do like pineapple

T a little tart and slightly sour, what I smells still there but its missing just a little something the nose had

M thin and a little foamy, makes me burp a fair bit, lets call it "stomach feel" pineapple and hefe yeast on the finish but its faint

O it's easy enough to drink but there's room for improvement, a little gassy and I just know some old school German brewers rolling over in his grave just at the though of this beer, not so 1516 that's for sure

Makes me think of Mac Tonight from the Mc Donald's commercials when I was a kid, I'm wondering if Tree will get sued over it. I drank a few of these quickly so that says something, give me a hot Summer Sun and a lawnmower and I could knock a few back but I wouldn't go looking for it

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - clear light golden, thumb of white head held respectably, left plenty of lacing
S - hints of sweet pineapple, some grains, its interesting here if a little strange
T - mellow sweet pineapple flavour, light grainy malts, touch of leafy hops and hints of herbs
M - light and smooth, easy drinking
O - the pineapple flavour definitely works with this style, its inviting and easy drinking, a great summer time sipper

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.
