On-tap at 2nd Hunahpu's Release.

A - Pours a hazy golden yellow, white head, larger bubbles mixed in here and there which eventually dissipate down to a thin ring a some white-colored whisps here and there. 4

S - Fresh pineapple (holy crap, it's amazing), sweet malts, some yeast notes. The pineapples just stick out and make this an amazing nose. 4.5

T - Pineapples + Kolsch = awesome. Fresh pineapples, sweet malt notes, yeast. Truthfully though, it's the pineapple that makes this beer what it is. I've had some beers that have pineapple in the title, but not one that's really killed it like this. 4.5

M - Light, refreshing, soft carbonation. 4

D - My fiancé kept going back for this one several times and I ganked her pours a few times before she made me get my own. Pineapples in this are awesome and you'll have to try to find out what I'm talking 'bout. I would chug this all summer long! JW, one helluva beer, brutha. 5

On-tap at the Hunaphu release... The body is a dark gold with a light white head. A little watery on the head but looks good... The aroma is sweet but subtle pineapple throughout, with a touch of grain notes... The pineapple disappears on the front and you are left with a crisp easy to drink kolsh, a little yeast and sweet grains. What's amazing about this beer is the finish. The pineapple is back and is so smooth and true to a pineapple, its like drinking some pineapple juice. AMAZING finish.

In the 70 degree sun this is a perfect crushable beer. High recommendation here, especially if you like pineapples.
