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.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a hazy bright yellow color with a nice, fluffy white head. The nose brings forward fairly-strong notes of pineapple along with some underlying coconut. Fairly intense and well integrated. The flavor takes it up another step, as in addition to the fruit, there’s an underlying wheat character that actually tastes like beer. With the nose, I was afraid that this was just going to taste no different than an actual pina colada. Body is light and very refreshing. I could drink this all day. By far my favorite of the event.

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

PhillyCraft (5902) - 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.
