On tap at the brewery. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Clear orange. A little hazy. Small white head that doesn't last.

Smell - Weird. A little vinegar. Oak. Fruity. Sweet caramel. Smells sour.

Taste - Sweet pineapple. Funk and oaky. A little sour, but mostly sweet.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation and heavy. Sweet and tangy.

Overall - Something went wrong here.

On tap at Cigar City in Tampa, FL.

This one pours a slightly hazy yellowish orange, with a small head and a good level of lacing.

Smells like coconut rum, toasted coconut, wheat, and sweet juicy pineapple. Is this beer?

This tastes like the beer version of a boozy pina colada. It's got all of the things you expect - spiced rum, lots of sweet coconut, and juicy juicy pineapple. It's simple but it's there. The wheat base gives a nice bitter balance.

This is medium bodied, super juicy, with a normal level of carbonation.

Another perfect replica of a non beer thing on beer form.

Pours a hazy yellow with thin white head. Smells just like a piña colada. Tastes like a pina colada with a nice rum finish. Has an interesting feel to it, possibly because it tastes so similar to a pina colada but is not frozen. Overall a good beer, but I don't know if I could drink a full glass due to the robust flavor and smell.

8oz pour in a snifter at the Funky Buddha Tap Room. Pineapple color with no head and moderate lacing. Smells like rum and pineapples. Taste like rum and pineapples. Would be enjoyable on the beach or by the pool. Very sweet dessert type beer.
