Surprisingly better than the reviews. I'm enjoying this and I Dont particularly like fruit beers or Fruit-Wheat.

Appearance: Pours a hazed honey color with a small head for wheat beer; leaves ample lacing.

Smell: Wheat bread toast with pineapple marmalade

Taste: Toasted wheat bread with a jammy pineapple spread; not as sweet or tropical as I feared. I like it more as it goes.

Mouthfeel: Light body with mid carbonation.

Excellent. (Hate to ship x ocean tho)

On-tap 4/19/2016 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a tapered pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a large foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, wheat, some spices and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with strong citrus flavors of grapefruit and tangerine up front. Then some breadiness comes in from wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is very mild and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a decent beer to drink for a while.

I had this in Hawaii, while on a family vacation. From a twelve ounce can, this is a hazy yellow beer...the aroma is a mix of pineapple and wheat twang. I couldn't get into this beer...the fruit is a little overwhelming and jumbled. Tropical, for sure, but not right In the beer. Strange, distracting, and worth avoiding.

Random pineapple beer. Mild drinking. Mel's choice, but had a bit of freezer burnt cold glass flavour.

Pours half a finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is pineapple and lemon. Nice.
The taste is mildly sweet, the pineapple plays nicely. Refreshing.
The texture is crisp.
It's enjoyable.

Not a big wheat guy, but I was in Hawaii and this was an excellent beer for the setting. Nice tropical flavors and very refreshing. Definitely worth having again, but only in the right setting.
