Maui Brewing Lemongrass Saison
Can. At first I thought this a beefy pour, with some big body. But it quickly settles into a fairly light think, which I guess would fit the style ... not a negative comment. The aroma is pretty pleasant, rife with fruit and perfume. This drinks very well, quite well balanced. A great blend of traditional saison styles with a unique twist. Very good. (#6582, 4/27/2017)

Maui Brewing Coconut Hiwa Porter
Ar: Coconut, cocoa powder, and lean, herbal hops; some toasted malt and dark caramel notes.Ap: Black and opaque; medium-large light mocha head with good retention, very fluffy in shape and leaving an airy cap of foam and big chunks of lacing along the glass sides. T: Sweet, rich coconut up front; metallic twang breaks through the richness, gives a tannic, semi-sour flavor; medium bitterness, with an astringent, herbal quality; some cocoa and caramel notes, though the metallic flavor dampens the richness of those flavors. P: Medium-full body with high carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: The aroma, appearance, and initial flavors are really solid, but there is a mixture of metallic and tannic flavors that just cuts through and really obscures everything else.

Maui Brewing Mosaic Mo Betta
Slight haze. Amber. Sweeter, amber malts, sugars, slightly plasticy phenols and a hit of alcohol. The hops aren’t that bright and that affects the balance.

Puszka na Warszawskim Festiwalu Piwa. Aromat kakao, trochę kokosa, niezbyt intensywny. Smak dosyć wytrawny, lekka słodyczka i goryczka. Kokos jest, kakao tez. przyjemne.

Maui Brewing Coconut Hiwa Porter
Przyjemny aromat. Jest gorzka czekolada, nuta kakaowca. Kokos przytłumiony czekoladą. Po chwili ze szkła jest dużo wyraźniejszy. Całość pachnie jak świeże wiórki kokosowe wymieszane z czekoladą. Pojawia się nuta ziołowa, trochę ostra, jak zielony pieprz. W smaku lekko kwaskowaty, czekoladowy. Jest wyraźniejszy kokos w posmaku. Nisko wysycony, gładko się pije. Później wychodzi bardzo wyraźnie kokos, jest to świeży kokos, sama kopra. Ale nadal wyraźne kakao i czekolada. Bardzo fajny kokosowy porter.

Maui Brewing Suck ’em Up Session
Draft at SB. Pours a hazy medium amber with a loose and sudsy whitish head. Mild herbal, caramel, and pine resin nose. Creamy medium body with moderate carb. Herbal, caramel, and pine resin mid palate, with a dry finish. No notable flaws here, but the recipe doesn’t make the flavors and aromatics expressive enough to be really interesting.

Maui Brewing Lemongrass Saison
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 5.2% ABV
Hazy to cloudy golden color, small head. In the aroma, light fruit, light yeast spices, and some candy. The mouthfeel is lean, not too dry; delicate malts, delicate fruity esters, and very low bitterness, which makes it feel like sweet beer.
Nice light Ale.

Maui Brewing Lemongrass Saison
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out considerable saison yeast and a touch of lemongrass. Flavour is much more expressive on the lemongrass, with saison yeast and lots of fruity esters. Too yeasty, sweet and estery. Not very pleasing.

Hazy golden color, compact head. The aroma is a bit funky, hoppy; the body is strong, but lean, the malts are pale but with a light biscuity touch; the hops are resiny and a bit grassy, and overall there is a mild spicy character from the yeast.
Nice.

Black, with beige head. Aroma is not that powerful: sweet coconuts, coffee, roastiness. Taste is sweet: coconut, nuts, a bit of vanilla. As it warms, a pleasant chocolate feel hits you in the after taste. Good and easy drinking.

Maui Brewing Mosaic Mo Betta
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out subdued tropical fruits, berries and resinous hops. Flavour is very tropical, with lots of stone fruits, berries and resinous hops. But the hops are harsh and don’t mesh with the malt at all, creating a very messy and abrasive flavour profile. Lacking cohesion or drinkability. Not good.

Maui Brewing Mana Wheat
Pale golden pour with thick, fine white foam. Spicy nose with pineapple notes. The taste balances the wheat sweetness and the tartness of the pineapple. There are some spices too, ginger and some clove and coriander. Medium body, slightly slick with a sharp finish. Very refreshing and a good variation on a wheat beer. Another good flavor combination from Maui.

Can from Beergium.com. Pours almost clear orange. Nose is pineapple, apricot, banana. Palate is banana and apricot first, the pineapple is more in the finish. Just a bit zesty. You can make out the wheat beer pretty well. More wheat beer based fruit beers please!

Maui Brewing Coconut Hiwa Porter
This canned brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a body with no visible carbonation that was semi-opaque and dark brown in color with a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty with a mellow coconut base. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild roasted malt aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of roasted malt and coconut. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
