Just pulled this out of the back of the fridge, thanks to Drew maybe, don't remember. Anyways, best by 7/27, so right on the cusp and figured I better drink it.

Pours a nice frothy almost 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, nice retention, a bit of lacing, very murky hazy lemonade color.

Nose some tropical not a ton, mostly pineapple, grapefruit and citrus, maybe a touch of lemon, maybe guava paste thing, and some passion fruit, I guess more tropical than I initially thought, some decent cracker malt underneath.

Taste brings plenty of tropical fruits, loads of pineapple, almost pineapple juice and fresh pineapple chunks, plenty of citrus zest, a little lemony and grapefruit, touch of passion fruit tartness, some juicy fruit, then cracker creamy malt, flaked wheat, a faint touch of honey but not sweet. Finish is quite dry thanks to the honey probably, a little wheat and malt, plenty of pineapple lingering, fair to lighter bitterness

Mouth is med bod, nice fluffy carb.

Overall not bad, loads of pineapple but tastes fresh fruit and juice, some other tropical notes, decent malt base, fair bitterness, enjoyable.

Aroma is tropical fruit and kind of big sweetness. The flavor is tropical fruit/pineapple, malts, medium sweet in the middle and a tart/bitter finish.
