4.17/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

10 oz pour on tap into a snifter.

A-Pours a nice Golden orange/brown color, fairly clear, nice lacing, no apparent head.
S- Coconut is a lot more hidden than the previous infusion and the base beer, nice fruity aroma lingers out, some pineapple slight citrus, as it warms up the coconut comes out a little, sweet almost marsh mellow like aroma.
T- Wow, delicious, just like pina colada, but with a nice creamy smooth finish, really refreshing, fresh pineapple, nice coconut taste, marsh mellow, slight chocolate taste as well.
M- Well carbonated, medium/light mouth feel, smooth, clean finish.
O- Delicious infusion, not as good as the blueberry but still amazing, sad they only did one keg of this tasty brew.

Drove down to try this beer. Love Town Hall’s coconut beers so something with pineapple has to be great! Drank from a generic tulip.

Appearance- Pours a light orange with a yellow tint and zero head. Somehow a bit of lacing is left but no cap or collar remains.
Smell- Definitely has a lightly fruity scent but you'd never guess pineapple from the smell alone. Lightly nutty from the coconut as the beer does have a bit of a beach smell (or tanning salon). The coconut is actually the dominant smell by far.
Taste- Starts with a super light sweetness and a big punch of raw mellow coconut. Almost vanilla like at times. The pineapple is perceptible but it’s not all that pineapple-y. There is a light touch of caramel that sneaks in but the coconut is definitely the star of the show.
Mouthfeel- Very light and spritzy with a soft almost creamy feel.
Drinkability- Solid beer. It pretty much tastes just like the regular Macaroon with an extra touch of fruity sweetness. The pineapple probably could be more pineapple like as it just sort of tastes like an amalgamation of fruit. Very good, very unique.

Served to brim with no head. Color is a clear golden orange.

Aroma: Coconut, marshmallows, fresh pineapple, apple juice/cider, pears, and caramel malts. Fruity and sweet.

Taste: Much like the nose. I would almost expect this to be an apple infused version. Maracroon + pineapples and apple juice.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy. Sweet. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends clean.

Overall, a really nice version of the original beer. The pineapple showed a nice amount and it also had a nice apple flavor. Decent drinkability.

Draft. Poured into a short goblet glass a clear golden color with no head. Sweet, apple juice like smell with a slight pineapple aroma. Slight Lina colada like notes. Medium aroma. Very sweet start that transitions to a pineapple apple flavor. Pretty sweet. One goblet is enough. An interesting fruit beer.
