Mellow Moon Pineapple Hefeweizen
Tree Brewing Company
Kelowna, British Columbia
Deep Yellow (cloudy)
I've had Hefeweizens before. A lot of them taste the same. When a brewery actually adds flavor to it, it changes everything. In my opinion, flavor adds to the refreshment of the hefe. It gives it that extra kick to a bland style of beer. Mellow Moon Pineapple Hefeweizen from Tree Brewing is the answer to that summer beer everyone is looking for. Mind you, however, you can't drink this beer (and any other Hefe) too much without getting an upset stomach so drinking this beer casually is the way to go. Relax, sit in the sun, and enjoy this beer.
First of all the smell gives off more of a citrus aroma than pineapple and I do detect a slight bit of spice as well. The taste is really refreshing and that's where you can taste the pineapple. However it's not quite predominant as I thought but still great none the less. The taste also has a bit of tartness witch adds a dryness to the taste. The finish is smooth and slightly crispy with a fruity mellow aftertaste. I would honestly recommend you trying this beer on a hot and sunny day. You will thank me for it. Cheers!
