look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a hazy hazy pale pineapple juice hue with a quarter inch head that faded quickly to leave a light light halo.

S - Aromas of really sweet pineapple chunks, from a can, pineapple candy. It delivers what it promises.

T - Really wish the taste lived up. The start is in your face pineapple, sweet crushed pineapple before giving way to a wheat/cereal like finish. The aftertaste is a bit underwhelming too, perhaps even slightly unpleasant. Just lots of that grain on the end with a lighter pineapple, the lingering aftertaste of sweet cereal.

M - Mouthfeel is on the thinner/watery side though is brightly carbonated.

O - Overall, this was a super neat beer. The nose was really, really good and so was the taste until the cereal grains came out. Still, it was a tasty beer and if this was ice cold I could see this going down incredibly easy in the summer time. Clearly not for everyone this beer does deliver exactly what it promises though.

It is pale yellow in color similar to the color of the fruit of a pineapple. There was a white head that disappeared before I really noticed it.

The smell definitely had a pineapple smell. It also had a sweet, sugar coated cereal smell.

The taste has pineapple, but it combines with a flavor like the marshmallows in a box of Lucky Charms.

It has a thin and watery mouthfeel.

I tried this beer on tap and thought it would be good after mowing the lawn on a warm, summer day. The sugary sweet cereal taste and smell throws me off. I love pineapple, but the sweetness is too much.
