12oz Bottle – Gravity Beer Market - Olympia, WA
Golden in color, hazy with a thin head. Nice fruity aroma with a light hint of hops. Wheat malt flavor gives off the spices and malt characters. Light hints of pineapple this is a wonderful summer beer.

Hazy gold pour, whitish head. Aroma starts nice and sweet with some honey, pineapple, stone fruit, wheat and maybe a faint dose of hops. Flavor has a great mixture of fruity sweetness, wheat, light hops, yeastiness. I really enjoyed this and HOT DAMN! Maui is coming to AZ!

Can from kegs and barrels. Pours a lousy dull yellow with a medium white head. The aromas are pineapple, clove and banana. The mouthfeel is slightly sticky, set and has a medium body. I really liked this one. Cheers!

On tap at Urge in RB/Poway on April 28, 2011. They had 8 different brews from Maui that day. Bright amber with brilliant white head. Awesome fruity taste with lots of spice to back it up. Totally digging the pineapple in this one. Didn’t know it was there ahead of time.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy gold pour with some fluffy white head. Lots of acidic pineapple juice aroma with some wheat bite. Very easy to drink and refreshing - I could see myself picking up a sixer of this for the pool or lake. Not usually a fan of wheat beers but this is pretty good for what it is.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can served in a flare pilsner. 7/8 head on an average pour. A very hazy glowing yellow-orange body grows slowly from the bottom of the glass finishing at the half-full-half-empty debate point after about a minute. Sticky foam webs handily across the now barren top half. Quite impressive. The aroma is nice as well. Big-sweet bubble gum, wheat, and pineapple essence show on the nose. More of the same on the palate, though maybe in a less intense and complex form. Medium-light body, light carbonation, a thin-sticky texture, and a citra-cidic finish that quickly drys your mouth.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of pear syrup, lime/lemon juice, gum, nutmeg, metal.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, metallic.
Ok if a bit odd in the nose, but fizzy, watery, and metallic in the mouth. Very clunky. Drain pour.

Can from pikapp327’s graduation!! It seems like only 2008 when he was a new member on RB. Aroma is straight bubble gum and pumpkin spice. This is interesting. Flavor is also bubble gum. Interesting but very off style

Can for pikapp327’s graduation! Super murky brown pour with a giant white head. Aroma is sweet, bubblegum, and banana. Taste is spice, banana, really twangy, and sharp wheat.

Can: Hazy wheat note with a nice white head. The nose is fresh and wheaty with some nice fruit and clean spicy notes. Orange and hops, big fruit and nice musky wheat to balance. Clean finish, fresh wheat, nice orange. Good tail.
