A beer so enticing you may think itís 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!

Sample @ Beers of the Burgh Fest. Pours a clear straw yellow with a large white head of foam. Tart tart sweet aroma of pineapple. Starts out sweet like watered down pineapple juice then ends with a slightly flowery and metallic aftertaste like the acidity from a can. Not as good as I had expected.

This tastes like you took a blond ale and dumped some fresh pineapple juice in it, which is much better than I expected this beer to taste. You get a lot of things and it just tastes like a Jolly Rancher. Itís cloudy and yellow w/ a short lived head of fine bubbles. It has a Capín Crunch malt character in the nose and a bit of pineapple. The pineapple comes out much more once you taste it and itís got a pretty nice, juicy quality to it. I gotta say I wasnít expecting to like this at all but itís actually pretty good.

12 ounce can thanks to Chris. Golden yellow color. Nose is a bit of pineapple, but body is big pineapple juice. Lots of juice. Too much pineapple juice! Hard to finish the can.

Canned. Pours hazy yellow color, white head. Aroma is pure pineapple and some bready malt. Flavor is pineapple soda. They say thereís alcohol here but I just taste pineapple soda. Kinda cool. A bit gimmicky but cool.

An interesting drinking experience. Strong pineapple juice aroma. Pineapple is present in the finish without being overly sweet. Overall not very beer like though. Flat, light body, not as crisp as i expected, slightly oily feel. Left me feeling refreshed but unsatisfied and still wanting a real beer. A very drinkable and confusingly interesting beverage.
