SanTan Brewing Company Mr. Pineapple Wheat Beer
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is SanTan Brewing Company Mr. Pineapple Wheat Beer. I picked this beer up on a recent visit to Arizona.
From the SanTan Brewing Company website: “Winner of a silver medal at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival competition, Mr. Pineapple was originally conceived for SanTan Brewing Company’s annual Luau Day. Hazy straw gold in color, we add natural pineapple juice to a traditional wheat beer creating a refreshing tropical flavor. The pineapple is balanced with a firm malt character and a slight hint of clove. Mr. Pineapple is the perfect way to beat the heat on a warm summer day!”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark golden yellow with a nice white head and great lacing.
Aroma: Sweet wheat, banana, clove, pineapple, yeast and malt.
Taste: Sweet wheat and malt, pineapple, clove, citrus and a touch of banana and yeast.
Overall: A solid Hefeweizen, SanTan Brewing Company Mr. Pineapple Wheat Beer is tasty. This 5% ABV offering is something I’d enjoy having on hand to go along with the Hawaiian food I enjoy making. The pineapple flavor isn’t over the top, but balanced nicely. Very refreshing, smooth and easy drinking. Really enjoyed this one!
