3.81/5  rDev +7.3%

12 oz can courtesy of mgbickel pours an opaque yellow color with a modest cap of white head. Not much for retention and lacing.

Not as sweet as I was expecting and the pineapple aromas are somewhat subtle. Malts are blonde ale-esque. Nice.

Taste shows some more sweetness than the aroma, but still not overly sugary...I was expecting something similar to the Chapeau Pineapple, but this one is definitely more 'beer-ey'. The mouthfeel is nice and bubbly, light maltiness. I think the pineapple is extremely well integrated here, I would love to have this one in sixers available for summertime chillin' in south tejas! My only complaint is the pineapple flavors taste more like 'canned' pineapple as opposed to fresh.

A big shout out to woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy golden/white color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of pineapple juice. Taste is also very much pineapples, some malts are present, easy drinking and refreshing. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall would be a great refreshing beer on a hot summer day.

12 FL. OZ. can
Served in a Kulmbacher pokal glass

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.
