3.83/5 rDev +3.5%
Flat yellow and cloudy. Huge fluff white head that subsides with a little spotty lacing.
Light pineapple scent is overshadowed by a yeasty funk. Smells sugary.
The pineapple is faint and I was really hoping for more. It has a light tart vs. sugary dichotomy. Yeasty with phenolic banana.
Medium body, crisp, and juicy. Surprisingly drinkable for 10+.
A pleasant Belgian pale but I was hoping from a lot more juicy pineapple.

3.75/5 rDev +1.4%
Pale canary yellow, juicy look to it with a thin layer of white foam that fades quickly.
Aroma is slightly fruity, not in a specific pineapple way, but it's definitely fruity with a slight amount of yeastiness to it.
Taste is a little yeasty, slightly bready and mildly fruity like citrus or dried pineapple.
Medium bodied with light carbonation that ebbs away slowly over time.
Overall it was easily drinkable, but a little low on the "bling" and pineapple.

750 ml bottle (1 pint 9.4 fl oz.) with no apparent bottled on date present. Handwritten Batch #200 written on the label. I'm not the biggest fan of Belgian ales, but I am a fan of Pipeworks, so we'll see how this goes.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.
A - Pours a pale murky yellow colored body with some orange highlights when held to the light. An aggressive pour conjures about a finger's worth of white bubbles that dies down to a ring quickly. No lacing.
S - Smell is pretty nice. Authentic pineapple juice, some Belgian yeast, maybe some grapefruit / orange hop aroma, and just a hint of alcohol fumes. I can distinctly smell the lime juice as the beer sits also. Awesome. A mouthwatering aroma.
T - Taste is definitely unique, I will give it that. Natural juicy pineapple, Belgian yeast, & sour bread dough. Maybe a tad soapy. On the finish, I could really taste the tart citrus from the lime juice. Bready pilsner malt is in there if you look for it, I guess.
M - Feel is crisp, smooth, sweet, and citric at first, but finishes dry. Sticky pineapple / lime juice lingering on the palate. Light to medium bodied with nice carbonation. High alcohol content is very well masked.
Overall, it's an easy drinking beer especially at 10.50% abv, although I'm sure it is destined to doom me. There is a lot going on here, although not a lot of your typical Belgian style ale characteristics, which might disappoint some people. In my case, it suited me just fine. Definitely glad I got to try this.
