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.
