Bready aroma that hints at pineapple (with probably become more apparent in the nose after a swig). Alcohol is also present. Impressive hazy golden color with a white minimal head that lingers around. Light sweet taste with major wheatiness. Yep... I was right. Iím a taste prophet... the pineapple does become apparent... somewhat in the finish and nose, but also in the taste. Medium-bodied brew coupled with a creamy texture that screams YES, IíM A LOVELY BEER! Soft carbonation is present that coasts into a long, pleasant finish that reverberates and reiterates the aforementioned attributes of the pivo. Maui Brewing Co. has made me happy thus far....... Highly recommended.

Alooooooooooooooooha! Now this is a lot of aloha from the Maui Brewing ohana!! A wheat brew with pineapple! Now THATís refreshing!!! It may be hard to tell from that opener but I REALLY love this brew! It poured up a cloudy, light-amber in color with a massive head with moderate retention and minimal lacing. Aromas of wheat and pineapple (but more like grilled pineapple), and lemons. Flavors of the same but oh so smooth and well-balanced. Medium-bodied, smooth and easy to drink. Truly smooth liquid bliss! It has a light hoppy bite on the end to make for a clean, refreshing finish.

Pours super hazy with a large, fluffy white head. Smells like wheat and pineapple; very straightforward. Tastes like wheat, hints of coriander, and pineapple; not very pronounced flavors though. Medium-bodied with a fluid texture and present mouth-carbonation, Maui Brewing Mana Wheat finishes with a pleasing pineapple tang.

Can. Light golden color with a dense white head. Nose is pineapple and Christmas spices. The taste is amazing and totally unexpected. Thereís the clove and banana flavor that is familiar in a lot of wheat beers. Then thereís cinnamon, cardamom, and candied ginger. The slickness lingers on the tongue. There is a subtle hop bitterness that follows the spice. We tasted this side by side with the Kona Wailua Wheat and it wasnít even close. The Maui was the unanimous favorite.

Tap at poolside bar in Maui. Nose is sweet wheat and color is a bit more amber than a true wheat. Pineapple sweetness shines thru. Best served with a pineapple spear. Great start to maui

355ml Can (a works leaving gift):
Pineapple, a strong wheat aroma & some tropical fruits. Citrus & a touch of clove in there too.
Cloudy yellow with a foamy, white lacing for a head.
Pineapple upfront along with some tropical flavours. Again there is some citrus backed up with some light spices and a sweet, fruity taste.
Light medium & fairly refreshing with moderate carbonation and a good, sweet and summery mouthfeel.
As expected this one is pretty tropical and fruit with a good, refreshing taste to it and one that made for easy drinking. A great tasting beer that mixes a traditional hefeweizen with tonnes of tropical flavours and somehow it works.

Pours lightish yellow orange with short lives head. Smell is wheat and faint pineapple sweetness. Goes down very easily with a light wheat flavor and a hint of pineapple and just enough bitterness to balance. Very refreshing and easy to drink. I really enjoyed it.

Poured from a can at home. This is an extremely refreshing summer brew. I was suprised at the pineapple flavor. Light, hazy yellow color with a thin head. Lasting pineapple flavor. Very tasty.

Maybe some light pineapple in the aroma and some honey notes. Looks nice. The flavor is pretty nice. Not anywhere near as sweet as youíd expect from having pineapple, and not too wheaty. This is pretty nice. Very smooth finish.

20110820 12oz can from Honeygo. Cloudy dark gold looks more hefe than American wheat, beneath a tall, lasting beige head. Aroma is chock full of pineapple, plus some peach, hefe yeast, and hay. Very nicely attenuated with moderate fruity sweetness, tart pineapple, celery, coriander, and mild yeasty pepper. Overall, this was very enjoyable and extremely refreshing. Nice twist on a wheat beer, and if it wasnít over 13 bucks a sixer Iíd drink a ton of it. As it is, Iíll probably buy another six.
