I'm reviewing this weeks after I drank it, so I can't be very specific.

What I will say, is that I REALLY disliked the taste. Something (some crappy pineapple flavor?) was really clashing with some other flavor(s) (wheat flavor, maybe?) in the beer, and made it feel very poor quality or flavor match to me. I was hopeful and excited to try pineapple flavor, as I've had some other really nice brewed pineapple beverages and I like the taste of pineapples as well, but this just felt like a failed experiment to me.

I think the mouthfeel wasn't anything particularly great either, but at this point I don't really remember that much.

Wasn't foul, but unless I got a bad (too old, maybe? it was on clearance) bottle, it seems over-rated here.

Bottle: Poured a light hazy orangey color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aromas of wheat malt with some notes of pineapple are quite singular. Taste is also a mix between some sweet wheat malt notes with some pineapple juice which more or less works well together. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Not sure what to make of this experiment but probably won’t seek again.

Hazy golden yellow colour. Two inches of white head that forms a mountain in the middle of the glass. Strong carbonation with bubbles of different sizes. Great lacing and retention.

Lots of aroma ... seet pineapple, strong yeasty wehat hefe smell. The two aroma are well matched together.

The taste starts with a mild wheat taste then there is lots of pineapple but very sweet. The pineapple really dominates even in the mild aftertaste.

Medium feel but the carbonation is not strong in the mouth.

Theis is nice but it is just a novelty. It is too sweet. I was hoping for the tangy spicy hefe taste to be in with the pineapple but it was MIA.

Purchased at the LCBO for around $5.00 for a 650ml bottle. Enjoyed at 4deg C in a tulip

A- Ok. Unfiltered. Not much head at all.

S- Lots o pineapple. Very overpowering but that is what this beer is about

T- Pretty hard pineapple and sourness.

M- Ok at best.

O- Heartburn is on the way for sure

Food Pairing

This not so good beer was not food rated. If I did eat something it would have real pineapple on it for sure

Enjoy

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle poured into tulip 15/5/13

A hazy bright yellow with enough clarity to see a few bubbles floating up to a thumbs width of foam that quickly falls to a thin film leaving a few random patches of lace. I expect more foam and retention from the style but decent nonetheless

S fresh pineapples strong almost overwhelming the Hefe aspects, there's still some clove, banana, lemon, and some dry cereal but pineapples in charge and I do like pineapple

T a little tart and slightly sour, what I smells still there but its missing just a little something the nose had

M thin and a little foamy, makes me burp a fair bit, lets call it "stomach feel" pineapple and hefe yeast on the finish but its faint

O it's easy enough to drink but there's room for improvement, a little gassy and I just know some old school German brewers rolling over in his grave just at the though of this beer, not so 1516 that's for sure

Makes me think of Mac Tonight from the Mc Donald's commercials when I was a kid, I'm wondering if Tree will get sued over it. I drank a few of these quickly so that says something, give me a hot Summer Sun and a lawnmower and I could knock a few back but I wouldn't go looking for it

A - clear light golden, thumb of white head held respectably, left plenty of lacing
S - hints of sweet pineapple, some grains, its interesting here if a little strange
T - mellow sweet pineapple flavour, light grainy malts, touch of leafy hops and hints of herbs
M - light and smooth, easy drinking
O - the pineapple flavour definitely works with this style, its inviting and easy drinking, a great summer time sipper
