Beautiful straw color and Chrystal clear. Nose has fruit, slight vinegar twang. Taste changes as it warms. The pineapple and citrus notes bloom to challenge the larger sour notes. This is a slippery beer on the palette - very effervescent with a nice dry finish.

Light golden yellow and somewhat cloudy. Lots of heads and lacing.

Tropical fruit, vinegar, funk, and mild sweetness on the nose.

Sour citrus and pineapple, funk, with a tart finish.

Light and crisp with high carbonation. Finish is dry and lingering.

Very enjoyable and refreshing. Easy to drink. Would recommended this to anyone new to the style who doesn't want to go overboard just yet.

750ml bottle split between a pair of large snifters. Bottle 8/2015.

Some of the sediment made it into my glass due to my pouring. Otherwise, poured crystal clear golden/straw yellow with a big head initially that fades quickly to leave almost no head. Moderate amount of fine, fast carbonation. Smell is tart, fruity (pineapple, mostly), maybe a bit of yeastiness.

Taste is moderate tartness, moderate pineapple with a hint of citrus, some lemoniness, moderate yeastiness.

Mouthfeel is effervescent and light. Overall, mild but tasty beer.

750 ml bottle - poured into glass chalice:

Pours lemon-drop yellow with a white head that builds then slowly fades to nothing.

The smell is tart - bread, pineapple, vinegar and a touch of another citric fruit, which I will take as the kumquat. Pineapple enhances without overpowering.

The taste is tart/sour - vinegar and bread. Pineapple (and a little kumquat) in the sweettart finish. Pineapple grows as it progresses.

It is appropriately light-bodied. Carbonation is aggressive.

A pleasantly tart brew with a unique pineapple character. Pineapple enhances it.

This one was bad. My first experience with a Pineapple Berliner Weisse was in Barcelona and it was Tropic Sneeze from Brewski (Sweden). Tropic Sneeze tasted like the name, it was awesome. This on the other hand had very little fruit coming through, it was too dry, and gushed a bit when I opened it.
L: straw yellow, very light, looks unfiltered which is nice.
S: Not much. A little bit of spices, tiny bit of pineapple
T: Not exciting whatsoever. Very boring. I want more fruit!
F: Nice, a little overcarbonated. Light.
O: WIll not buy again and would recommend other beers over this one.

Light and frothy head with zero density, crests at two fingers and is gone in two seconds, bleached white, could not be brighter, no stickiness at all to the lacing. Bright metallic yellow hued liquid, gossamer haze to it, the amount of hyperactive bubbles is impressive. Piercing nose of sour tropical fruit, a bit too mixed to identify pineapple or kumquat, sour oranges, lots of yeast but not in a creamy, leesy fashion, iron flecks and mineral water, beeswax, really too laser-like to get a broader array of scents going, even as it approaches room temperature. Light-bodied, the heavy carbonation though gives it palate volume. Puckeringly sour and dry enough that overall it recalls a non-dosage Champagne. Here there is definitely more clarity to the kumquat and to a lesser extent pineapple fruit, minor green apple or passion fruit too. Minerally and chalky, the dryness may negatively impact the ability of the yeastiness to adhere to the palate. The citrus less overt, at moments evokes a lemon sponge cake. If you are up for its level of aggressiveness it is pretty well balanced and crisply refreshing, can say how the sourness might turn some off.

It is slightly cloudy, and very pale straw yellow. Tons of carbonation. It looks and sounds like a 7UP with the fizzing.

Smells very champagney. Sour fruits and yeast, and mineral water. A hint of "beer" there.

The flavor is nice. Pretty tart, fermented pineapple juice, some earthy/well water flavor sour funky yeast. The tartness dissipates toward the end and the sweet yeast is checked by some pale, cracker malts that really sit on your tongue for awhile.

Very crisp, lively, prickley carbonation. Light bodied, not filling at all.

Not a style I am a big fan of, or have a lot of experience with, but I think this one was very enjoyable overall and seems to be a fairly accurate representation.
