12 oz. can:

Pours golden with a creamy white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of chunks of pineapple with a wheat tang.

The taste is of wheat tang with a shot of pineapple juice. Semi-sweet finish.

It has a refreshingly smooth body. with the carbonation a bit on the aggressive side initially.

An American Pale Wheat with a strong pineapple character is what it is.

12 oz can. Pours clear light orange with a medium beige head, moderate retention. Aromas of biscuit, pineapple, caramel, with some grass and floral notes. Light body, velvety, moderate carbonation. Medium sweet, a hint of tartness with just enough of a slight bitter finish.

12 oz can. Pours hazy golden orange with a big rocky white head that retains fairly well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet candied pineapple and some soapy malts.

The flavor is wheaty cracker malt with some sweet pineapple and a little peppery grassiness. The mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery.

Overall, ok fruity wheat.

Golden honey colored with a small white head.

Aroma: pineapple, surprise surprise. It hits you up front. Easily the strongest pineapple aroma in a beer Ive had. Its hard to notice anything else, but this is very good.

Taste: pineapple and wheat, simple but harmonious and great.

Poured into a pint glass from the source. A hazy medium golden color with a frothy white head. Nice retention and lacing. Bright fresh pineapple aroma, best I've experienced. Taste followed with a solid wheat backbone and amazingly fresh pineapple. Not overstated.

Was really surprised this one is so clear local brewery has a similar one with a lot of haze. Clear dark yellow with a 1/2 inch of foam. Smell is bonkers straight up pineapple juice but not over sweet more like the run off you get from canned stuff. Taste is very disappointing more husk pineapple rather than sweet juice with a dry wheat body.

Pretty much a wheat beer with a shot of pineapple juice in it I guess I will stick with Rivertowne's Pineapple ale it is 400x better.

L: On draught into a tall glass. Clear gold with high carbonation but minimal head.

S: Not much going on. Some spicy notes but difficult to pin down. Nothing unpleasant. Did not get the pineapple other reviews refer to. Maybe the draught version loses this aspect.

T: Cardamom and lemon. Gentle spice. Hops and malt pretty much missing.

F: Thin body with high carbonation. Sharp finish.

O: Not offended by this beer but nothing about it stands out either. Another underwhelming American Wheat. Maybe it's a style I'll never get the hang of?

Sweet, juicy pineapple, grassy wheat, slight phenolic yeast, tart dry finish. Highly drinkable and thirst quenching
