A beer so enticing you may think it’s nectar from the gods. The name "Hala Kahiki" (Hah-lah-kah-hee-kee), originates from the Hawaiian words for pineapple. Feel the way it rolls off your tongue? Our sweet and refreshing beer will take you away...have a sip...grab a lei!

On draft at PNC Park. Poured orange with off white fizzy head. Pineapple nose. Pineapple flavor but a bit too medicinal. Extract all the way. Good summer beer regardless.

This brew pours a hazy bright yellow color with a thin white head that burns away quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit and malt. Light-bodied with a strong pineapple flavor, with some toasted malt and mild spice in the background. The finish is fruity with a lingering pineapple flavor. I would almost peg this as a cider based on the flavor alone. Decent overall.

Can shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured hazy yellow color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy tart citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate tart sweet flavor with a moderate sweet finish of medium duration. Good fruit brew.

At first glance you’d swear this was a cheap mass produced beer as it looks weak and flavorless and didn’t really have much of a head (although that may be a result of the bartender filling it right to the top). The smell is a little fruity but generally OK. But the flavor and palette are great for a fruit beer. This tastes a bit like a pineapple life-saver candy. It was really refreshing after a day of working in the sun and may just be one of my new favorite summer beers.

Can sample at the Rivertowne tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 4/10/14. Clear yellow in color with a thick white head. Aroma of pineapple and malt. Pineapple juice flavor with some malt before a sweet finish.

Drank ice cold from the can. Aroma is all pineapple juice with subtle hints of pale malts. This is a novelty beer all the way. Could dethrone hell or high watermelon for this years beach beer. But in the end it’s gimmicky stuff - all pineapple and nothing else. Nice carbonation reminding you it’s actually beer you’re drinking. Clean mouthfeel. I can dig it.

Can to snifter. Looks decent; a slightly cloudy light gold with thin white lacing. Smells like pineapple juice and baby shit. Tastes like pineapple juice; no baby shit though. Average on the palate. Not my thing.

12oz can, shared. Mostly hazy pale whitish yellow color. Thin ring of white head. Couple bits of lace. Big canned pineapple juice in the nose. Flavor is kind of like a pineapple soda. I like it. Moderate sweet taste, lightly zesty. Some sugary sweetness. Light to medium body, smooth, kind of crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Good, enjoyable stuff. It is what it is. Pineapple beer. A pretty well-done fruit-forward pineapple beer, not bad...

Draft at hunahpu day 2014. This one really shocked me. Slightly hazy pour, medium yellow in color. Medium sized white head. Nose is straight up pineapple and sugar. Would live a candle like this. Not much else in the nose. Taste is mostly pineapple with some residual sweetness but not at all cloying or offputting. Moderate carbonation helps to break up the mouthfeel and keep this beer thirst quenching. Very nice offering.

12oz can, received as an extra in trade. Thanks Dan! Pours a bright, crystal clear, pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma is fruity, tropical, pineapple. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, hay, some light grass, pineapple, a little nutty, with a very mild pineapple finish. Refreshing. The Aroma is better than the taste.

On draft at Cigar City Brewpub for Fruit in the Room 2014. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Nose is huge pineapple juice and some light malt. Flavor is similar- this one comes off like straight up pineapple juice: light, fruity, and juicy. Interesting beer with lingering pineapple juice in the finish.
