The beer is has a yellow haze to it with a thin head that dissipated rather quickly. The aroma if first go was that of pineapple juice followed by the faint smell of wheat. The beer has a good pineapple taste without it being overwhelming. It really just tastes like a wheat beer with some pineapple juice. It is well balanced and not overly sweet. The beer is medium bodied.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) can into a conical pint glass; canned on 08/24/17.
A: Pours a very slightly, hazy orange gold with very robust head formation, leading to a greater than one inch, fluffy white head, good retention, and solid lacing.
S: Slightly tart. Aroma of pineapple predominates with honeysuckle, caramel, and spice (?cinnamon).
T: Dry and slightly tart. Pineapple definitely out front and very consistent with real, unsweetened pineapple juice. A little caramel and pepper. Bitterness in exceptionally good balance with other flavor elements.
M: Light to medium bodied with very good persistence of effervescence. A bit creamy.
O: Do not really perceive much in the way of the wheat beer elements, could as easily have been a light ale or lager, but very light, drinkable, and enjoyable. Definitely for someone look beer with subtle fruitiness.

Pineapple Mana pours a darker copper color, with a little haze, and a big long lasting and lacing head. Smells of pineapple juice. Flavor is creamy, lots of pineapple juice flavors. Good body and feel. Overall, big on the pineapple flavors, and very pretty beer.

This tasted like a blend of hefe, lager and a wheat beer, all which looked like an NE IPA. Wasn't the biggest fan.

The taste smell and feel of this brew are very different and are slightl at odds with each other. The feel is frothy and thick, but the taste is light and crisp. Both are good alone but the combination is unexpected. The taste is also good but not akin to the smell. Probs wouldn’t buy again but still some yummy stuff brah

Pours hazy orange-gold with a fluffy white head.

Smell- pineapple dominates with some wheat and spices

Taste follows the nose. Big hit of pineapple with hints of spices and wheat. Like Blue Moon and Pineapple. I actually quite enjoyed it, but it is very sweet.

Mouthfeel- medium body and dry

Overall- Would be a lot more refreshing in the summer, but I was curious when I saw it. Might be a good beer for someone who says they don;t like beer.

Pours a yellow beer with some haze to it, I guess that is from the pineapple juice because there isn't anything yeast or hop wise that would lead me to conclude that is the particulate in which my eyes gaze upon. Aroma is of pineapple and grain.

Taste, more pineapple, slightly sweet. Covers up nearly all other flavors. Do you like beer, because this kind of tastes like it. . . light body, sweet pineapple, wheat must give it that lightness. High carbonation provides even more levity to the beer but also prevents more smoothness to it.

The only reason to get this beer is if you or someone you like is down with drinking some pineapple. Other than that, nothing to it.
