Default Tropical, or Pineapple Fruity beer?!?

Anyone got any ideas or recipes for a fruity beer that would make oyu think of the tropics, or even a pineapple flavored beer?

I am looking to make one for a possible "luau" I know I misspelled it, in the future, and I know the SWMBO loves the fruity beers, Ill be honest there's a few times I like them too, loving the blueberry ones

I did a coconut pale ale once with real coconut and shredded coconut. It came out really good in a strange way, but it wasn't all that tropical in the sense that I think you are going for.

I don't have a recipe, but Kona Brewing has a wheat ale that uses passion fruit.

Your best bet is to make a neutral, low-hopped base beer like a Cream Ale or basic Wheat Ale and infuse them with a high-quality tea as you serve them in the glass. Juices would also work.

Found this a "Toasted Coconut Porter" that won the NHC over 10 years ago, dont know if thats eough information for me to make a recipe from
Toasted Coconut Porter
Volume = 2.6 gallons
OG = 1.058; FG = 1.021
Boiling time = 60 min
Primary = 20 days at 65F
Secondary = 14 days at 65F

4.4 lb pale malt
0.8 lb chocolate malt
0.3 lb crystal malt (80L)

0.64 oz Northern Brewer whole hops (8.0% alpha) for 60 min
0.32 oz East Kent Golding whole hops (5.4%) for 10 min

Wyeast 1318 London Ale III
7.2 oz shredded coconut, toasted (in secondary)
2.18 oz dry malt extract (for priming)

Mash grains at 153F for 90 min. Add toasted coconut to secondary.

Whats everyone's thoughts, there is also a Pineapple Recipe referred to me by Brewmando

Pineapple Pale Ale
- 5 #s extra-pale malt extract
- 1 # crystal malt
- 2 oz cascade hops (bittering) 60 min
- 1 oz hallertauer hops (aroma) 15 min
- 1 oz hallertauer hops (dry hop)
- 1 tsp gypsum
- 1 package belgian ale yeast
- 4 #s fresh hawaiian pineapple - secondary
- 3/4 cup corn sugar (priming)

OG: 1.035


Not sure on it though, could I do something else besides pale ale, I have a long time to test and try different recipes, so im going to stay open to ideas. perhaps make up some 1 gal batches

Well keep the ideas flowing people!

Other Ideas coming up now.. Brewing a light bodied beer as mentioned here, now im thinking I would just want to trow some pineapple down in the keg, as I have no keggging equipment at this point (this idea is about a year away so i got research time, so I am thinking of droppign a pineapple wedge into bottles, making 1 gallon batches to test it out

My favorite tropical fruit (also the worlds most popular fruit) is mango. It works very well in a wheat beer. I love it in my http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f72/drunk-owl-mango-55227/, although it won't be ready for any summer party this year

I just kegged a 3 gallon version of this beer. Used nottingham instead of belgian ale yeast. Used Crystal Malt 10L. It sounds good but I haven't gotten a chance to taste it yet.
