Tasting notes: Unique. Rich smoky unripe pineapple with a touch of sour (yet subtle and well-integrated), a dry wheat spice (with the barest echo of cinnamon), lemony candy-like nose, fairly thick body for the style. Semi-dry finish. Fizzy. Pineapple is subtle and the wheat flavor comes through. Pleasantly tangy and refreshing. Slightly grainy. Hints of popcorn, chewed gum, and grass. Less juicy than expected.

Light, sweet, and summer-y. Drank out of the can, so not sure about the look.

My parents brought these back from Hawaii with them for me. Solid beer. Have to visit the brewery someday.

Clean, with a body similar to a hefe. Tastes are dominantly wheat with pineapple juice. Wish I would have picked up a full pack of this. An interesting take on this style and one that makes me more curious about this brewery.
