Our Pina Colada Wheat Ale is a tropical infusion that will make you feel like you’re poolside. We infuse this light wheat ale base with 100% real coconut and juicy pineapple. The result is a beer reminiscent of the classic beverage. Just one rule: no Rupert Holmes songs allowed at the bar.

Draft at Churchkey for the Bluejacket/Funky Buddha/Cigar City event during SAVOR week. Poured a hazy yellow color, with a small white head. aroma was full-on tropical fruits (a la pineapple), pina colada. Sweet fruits, pina colada pretty much. Interesting experiment here.

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Tap at CK. Full haze straw. Webby lace. Rich piña colada nose. Taste is straight up piña colada. But it's malty and sweeter. Not sour like some people were expecting. Refreshing. Bright. Essentially piña colada in beer form straight up. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Hulmeville Inn. Cloudy yellow orange with a white head. Nose is mostly pineapple, less coconut, and sour lemon. Medium light with soft carb. Taste is sweet pineapple and wheat finishing with milky coconut. Subtle, refreshing and sessionable.

On draft at the HI. Pours a cloudy yellow orange gold with a medium sized white head. Aroma of pina colada mix, pineapple, wheat and hints of Juicy Fruit gum. Taste is much the same. Excellent.

PhillyCraft (3431) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2012
On tap at Woody’s. Pours a cloudy yellow gold, medium white head and lacing. Aromas are pineapples, coconut water, and wheat. Taste is straight pina colada juice, with a pleasent wheat session ale feel. Insanely drinkable, would love some ice cold growlers of this next to the beach or pool. Another example of why these dudes deserve the hype.

jredmond (5610) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Draft at woodys with vin. Pours a deep hazy orange with lots of white lacIng. Aroma is light, standard wheat beer. Mouthfeel is smooth, and the master of cloking when it changes to straight piña colada. Insane notes of pinepple, wheat and coconut.

Tap. Strong bready, doughy aromas overshadow the coconut essence and the pineapple is almost undetectable. I’m thinking this may have been sitting around too long. This is a fair rating for now since I don’t think it should’ve been served. If I try it again, I’ll re-rate it if it’s any better.

Draft @ Treasure Coast beer fest. Smells and tastes like a pina colada. Pretty impressive for what it is. Medium body with average carbonation.
