Maui Brewing Mana Wheat
Maui Brewing Mana Wheat is an American Pale Wheat Ale brewed with Maui Gold Pineapples. I got this can of beer from Service Brewing assistant brewer Jeffery Hyatt, which he brought back from his summer vacation to Maui. Thanks! Canned on 6/14/14 and opened on 10/17/14, so it does have just a little bit of age on it.
The pineapple aroma on this is pretty strong and is mixing well with the wheat and yeast on the nose. The taste is a bit more typical of your everyday wheat ale. The pineapple is there, just not as big or sweet as on the nose. The back half of the taste carries that mild pineapple flavor and a bit of citrus/acidic tartness.
I’m not a big wheat beer guy, but I found this enjoyable much in the same way that 21st Amendment Hell Or High Watermelon is. It is easy to drink and flavorful for the summertime.
