When thinking of a fruit beer, most people expect a strong, dominant fruit character that can sometimes make you forget you are actually drinking a beer. This fruit beer greets you with a well-balanced fresh pineapple aroma that is supported by a light, bready maltiness. The bready malt character continues into the flavor with fresh pineapple and a light clean tartness. The residual malt sweetness lingers into a medium sweet finish.  A moderate level of hop bitterness helps to dry it out, but the beer would benefit from a slightly drier finish. There is no hop aroma or flavor to compete with the pineapple, in keeping with most fruit beers. This is a well-balanced pint overall and a recommended Fruit Beer.
