Taste is Belgian spice, wheat, banana, and light pineapple juice that comes out on the end. The pineapple flavor actually works pretty well with the beer as it does not overwhelm the taste. It adds a nice, sweet, and citrusy end. I prefer more traditional hefes, but applaud the creativity. I would get this again.

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.

- Pineapple Hefeweizen.

A: Fizzy, sudsy diary cream white head is slight in size and weakly holding, dissipating over a pale orange colored body with a slight lemon tint upon backlighting. Good clarity shows a equally good rush of micro-effervesce.

S: Aroma was laid back tart pineapple, with only a average sense of excitablity, and virtually no sense of hefe-yeast.

T: Flavor was freshly sliced pineapple with some mango-orange fruitiness and a hint of banana yeastiness. Lighty dry pineapple finish.

M: Decent carbonation factor and body fullness, syrupy texture, bite of minearlity upon the swallow.

O: Overall, when cold the pineapple influence is more dominant, as it warms the hefeweizen yeastiness tends to show itself a bit more. It really didn't deliver on my expectations per the pineapple factor, nor the hefeweizen factor (full disclosure i am a fan of pineapple, so whether this caused me to rate this harder (or possibly more lenient, could be a factor) and i do like hefeweizens per style, this tended to trend in the swallow waters of complexity, and wasn't as bold or daring as it could of been. Doesn't really stand out as a try, tick, or refreshing choice per style or by itself. A C rated effort beer at best, expected a bit more from a brewery called Evil Genius. boring.
