3.5/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy medium golden in color,with a moderate, quite dense off-white head, and scattered, thick and patchy lacing.

Aroma: Prominent pineapple notes, but without the cloying sweetness are complimented by classic Hefeweizen aromas. The aroma is in no way overpowering, like some pineapple "malternatives". Clove and banana offer a subtle flourish.

Taste: The taste begins with strong, although not sweet pineapple flavors, like pineapple without the sugar flavors. As the taste progresses, the pineapple continues to dominate, complimented by the wheat malt base, and a little banana and clove. Strange as it seems with the love ABV of five percent, there seems to be a little warming, sensation, which was quite unexpected. Late in the taste, there is some mild bittering. Finishes with a mild, but lingering pineapple and wheat flavor.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and full, with some stinging carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: An interesting and drinkable example for warm weather. Very well-balanced, and drinkable.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Being an Arizona beer I really wanted to like this beer. Unfortunately that wasn't really the case. It is palatable, just not exactly enjoyable.

Looks (minus the voluminous head) and tastes like a traditional Hefeweizen; However, with the pineapple twist, this beer turns from what could be a great recreation of a traditional German style, to a refreshing, flavorful creation that doesn't sacrifice the traditional taste.
