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!

Pours a pale golden color with a finger of gaseous foam. Nose is straight pineapple juice with a hint of cracker malt. Palate follows and is pretty sweet and full of pineapple... it ebbs and flows from decent to not very good. Lots of kolsch qualities with pure pineapple juice up front.

Pours hazy straw with a small white head. Aroma is dominated by pineapple with some hints of caramel. Taste is sweet, medium bodied with sticky finish. Interesting and I can see why it has such polarizing ratings...if you don’t like lots of pineapple you certainly won’t like this.

banana, pale, hazy, white foam, light sweetness, light body, lively, starts at pineapple, finishes as cat treats, an almost fishy taste

I don't know if I got a bad batch or something, but this is easily the worst commercial beer I've ever had. Disgusting vegetable aroma, nasty taste. Reading the other reviews, there is no way those people are tasting the same beer I am.

The aroma is of canned cat food and vegetables. The appearance is pale gold with a thin head. The taste is unimaginably bad and beyond description and I can’t have another sip to figure it out. The palate is watery thin. Overall horrible! This is the worse beer I have had in quite some time.

Can... Pours murky and straw-colored with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma supplies loads of pineapple fruitiness, breadiness and a hint of funkiness. Medium-bodied and creamy with feather-soft carbonation. Sweet, fruity, pineapple and pale malt flavor. Finishes sweet, fruity and yeasty

Poured from a 12 ounce can, thanks Santa. The aroma pineapple, sweaty sock, wheat. The flavor is dominated by pineapple, wheaty, sweaty sock. The pineapple gives this beer a sweaty sock character that I do not care for.

superspak (6492) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2014
12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a small foamy white head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of lightly tart juicy pineapple, pear, light banana, wheat, bread, light honey, and light grass. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pineapple fruit and pale malt sweetness; with decent strength. Taste of slightly tart juicy pineapple, pear, light banana, wheat, bread, light honey, and light grass. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, pear, light banana, wheat, bread, light honey, and light grass on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of pineapple fruit and pale malt sweetness; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; wit ha very smooth and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a nice session fruit beer. Good balance and solid robustness of pineapple fruit and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. Nice amount of authentic fruit flavor without feeling watery; a nicely enjoyable offering.

Can thanks to Dmac! Pours a cloudy yellow with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong pineapple and wheat. Thin mouthfeel with nice strong pineapple juice and sweet finish. Very good.

ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Thought this was the Cincy brewery. Dang. Aroma: Pineapple juice with a slight bready undercurrent. Appearance: Rich gold with a bubbly white head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Pretty much matches the nose; simple overall with pineapple dominant, but a little bread underneath to stop things from getting too cloying. Palate: Light body, slick texture, very soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Pretty original as far as I know, but really well done I thought, in terms of what I expected to the actual execution. I’d buy it again, even if it’s from PA.
