Food Pairing

This not so good beer was not food rated. If I did eat something it would have real pineapple on it for sure

Enjoy

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.

Hefeweizens are naturally, characteristically cloudy and, last time I checked, pineapple juice wasn't exactly brilliant and sparkling neither; if anything, it's actually a bit surprising Mellow Moon is as clear - relatively speaking - as it is. Of course, transparency has no bearing on tone and, the minor haze notwithstanding, this bubbly, golden-yellow beer has a blindingly bright shine to it.

Adding pineapple juice to a Hefeweizen may infuriate a few purists in Bavaria but it's sure to greatly please pretty much everyone else in the world (assuming the prerequisite of liking pineapple, of course). This beer brims with juicy, sugary pineapple and citrus notes while still retaining the savory clove and spicy white pepper notes of the yeast.

There are mid-palate flavours of cereal grain, bubblegum, lemony citrus, and pineapple juice, while the finish shows a sudden turn to spicy and savory notes, a smack of vanilla, as well as a trace of the style's characteristic banana taste. There's a strongly acidic spine (something typical of the style, though I'd assume enhanced by the addition of pineapple juice).

You wouldn't necessarily think of weissbier as having far-reaching potential at the dinner table - the high-octane refreshment means it's ticketed most often as a patio drink - but the style's hallmark notes (tropical, orchard and citrus fruit, clove, pepper, bubblegum, grain, vanilla) are as diverse as they are powerful and offer plenty of pairing potential. Add pineapple to that list...

Hey, there's surprisingly a lot going on here (though you'd be forgiven for chugging it back without noticing). Indeed, Hefeweizens are beloved across the world for their easy, citrusy refreshment, splendid effervescence, and fruity undertones - adding pineapple only plays to the style's strengths and appeal. Kitschy though it may seem, it's kind of a genius move. And it sure as hell beats 'lager and lime' as a summertime quencher.

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.

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.
