Mr Pineapple by SanTan Brewing is a 5% ABV is an American Pale Wheat Ale brewed with Natural Pineapple Juice.

Label:
Mr Pineapple was conceived for SanTan Brewing Company’s annual Luau day. Fresh pineapple juice is added to a traditional Wheat beer during fermentation to add a refreshing tropical flavor this fruity ale! The pineapple is balanced with a firm malt character and a slightly spiced hint of clove. Mr. Pineapple is the perfect way way to beat the heat on a warm summer day!

A special thanks for the hook up to the lord of beermetaldude.com, Aaron Mendiola. This beer comes from Arizona and is brewed by SanTan. Being so close to California, I have yet to try an Arizona brew. This is my first and this awesome. I was able to get a second can to do a review later one but just the honor of bringing a SanTan beer to the reviews is awesome. This one is a pineapple wheat beer. I have tried a Watermelon wheat beer before which really was not that great unfortunately. You be the judge on that one though. I really hope this one does better but I will only be able to tell once we do the review. So let’s go and cheers!

Aromas:
Banana, clove spice, peppercorns, biscuit bread, citrus, pineapple hints, vanilla, caramel, floral notes, honey, honey dew melon, herbal spices and old mango.

Flavors:
Bananas, clove spice, Pineapple hints, tangerine, citrus, honey, passion fruit, old mango, honey dew melon, Orange, peppercorns, biscuit bread, ,mango, vanilla, caramel, floral notes, lemon peel and honeycomb.

Aftertaste:
Pineapple, banana, citrus, biscuit bread, clove spice and lemon peel linger. No alcohol in the taste, easy to drink refreshing and crisp. Light to medium mouth feel, and clear body.

Overall:
This is very good. It is like the Belgian wit meets German heff but on the tropical fruitier side. I can easily see my self buy several of these for a nice summer day as it is pretty refreshing. The addition of the pineapple gives it some nice tropical character without taking too much from the Belgian wit goodness. In fact it does compliment it a bit. A very nice beer if you can find it.

Anime Corner:
Original character by artist Happoubi Jin was chosen for this pairing to show case some of the label art work as well as the beer flavors. While the pineapple up in the corner is represents the pineapple flavor of the beer, the lady in the picture is representative of Mr./Miss Pineapple. Her colors are those that compliment the label well. The green of the stem and the blonde hair of the skin of pineapple. Her eyes give way to the Belgian aspect as in their use of special yeast gives nice fruity flavors and in some Belgians, the dark fruits.
