Review: UFO Pineapple
UFO is an offshoot of Boston’s Harpoon Brewery with a specific focus on unfiltered wheat beers. Kinda-sorta spun off as its own thing, UFO (for UnFiltered Offering) has been steadily increasing its output, with a particular focus on canning.
UFO Pineapple is the latest edition, a hefeweizen (of course) infused with its namesake fruit. From its wheat-heavy beginnings, it doesn’t take long for a bold pineapple note to take hold: Think sugary, candied pineapple, not fresh fruit, or perhaps digging into a big Dole Whip — a bit too overblown for my taste, at least up front. The grainy, slightly malty wheat notes don’t stay in the background for long, though, emerging in time for a finish that melds fruit with field.
