Pours a light golden colour with nice frothy head that sinks slowly. White thick curtain of lace. Mild haze. Looks like a decent wheat.

Smells fruity. Distinct pineapple note with a slight glacé edge. Touch of cinnamon-laced pastry and strudel on the malt, very mild sweet spice. Bit desserty and could use more edge. Pleasant, though.

Taste is a bit tart and noticeably oxidised. Some caramel malt notes but quickly turns damp, raisiny but gets some lightness from pineapple late-mid. Finishes short but some nice light spice notes on the back. Would be interesting as a hefe with stronger wheat notes. Feel the pineapple dominates esp round the mid and some more yeasty spice or fruit esters might provide some interesting contrast.

A little thin, bit of pleasant tingly carbonation midway. Feels fine.

Some more beery edge underlying could really make this pop. Pleasant summery Mauiesque drop, but feel it could really be an intriguing beer if consumed fresh, as it's well crafted.

A: Cloudy pale yellow in color. Forms a fluffy white head. Decent retention. Minimal lacing.

S: Aroma is a bit funky...like fermented pineapple juice. Not necessarily bad, just, well...fermented pineapple juice.

T: Taste starts off with a slightly tart sweetness. Wheat. and pineapple. A slight earthy quality on the back end.

M: On the lighter side of medium. Slight acidic tartness, presumably from the pineapple juice. Low bitterness.

O: A refreshing summer beer. Nothing too serious - a fun beer. I like the pineapple here.
