Looked like a hefe, smelled like a hefe, tasted like a hefe. . . although I found it very hard to find any reference to pineapple.

Still, not a bad beer. Just didn't come through with the pineapple.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass

L: Clear golden pour... 1.5 fingers of white head. Reasonable lacing.

S: Pineapple/citrus dominates... some grain in the background.

T/F: The hefe base is lacking... more of a wheat with some grass and citrus. Pineapple is not as dominant as expected from the smell but still overpowers a bit. There's an unpleasant flavor in the background... something almost chemical/solvent that comes in mid-swig that really takes away. Makes it taste almost fake. Body is fairly light... well carbonated. Finish is mild pineapple and that same off flavor.

O: This one didn't really work for me. The idea of mixing pineapple with a hefe isn't a bad one... and this smells reasonably okay but the flavor was just not that appealing.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on August 23, 2016.

The pour is yellow with no head to speak of. Moderate clarity.

They promise pineapple and they deliver. That is the main sensation in the aroma. But it is not the hoppy pineapple you might prefer. It is more like pineapple fruit juice. Toasted malts underneath.

Light body.

Like the aroma the taste highlights the pineapple juice flavor and the ending is fruity with a very mild almost inconsequential bitterness.

Undated bottle into pint glass. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Initial impression is Summer Shandy with a little more character. Yes, it tastes like pineapple. Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium. Carbonation, too. Finish is quite smooth with a hint of pineapple. Not too bad but not a hefe.
