COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

hopscotch (8534) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Draft… Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. It really does smell like a Pina Colada or Hawaiian Tropic tanning oil – pineapple puree and coconut. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Well-balanced flavor. Clean, like a lager. Suggestions of pineapple, coconut and a little butter. Finishes crisp and tropical. Not overdone. Very nice. A real refresher.

On tap at the Blue Dog (Lansdale). Poured a muddy/hazy yellow color with an averaged sized white head. Pineapple withe some cereal and wheatiness coming out as it warmed. I’m not too crazy about wheat beers or pineapple, but found this one to be nice and drinkable.

GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, 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

jredmond (5025) - 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.

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.

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.
