Pours a clear light straw color with an 1/8th inch head, kinda looks like a coors light. It does leave a few lines of lace on the glass though. The aroma is moderate with smells of pineapple and other tropical fruits present. The taste follows suit, the flavor is like a canned pineapple drink with the slightlest hint of a hop bite buried deep at the end. The mouthfeel is light moderately caronbated and crisp. Overall it isn't awful, but it is a one trick pony. It is pineapple straight forward and that is about it. It is worth a try on a hot day, but a try would probably do it.

Well this could have been worse. Fruit beers, though usually refreshing and often interesting, are always precariously to much like a soda pop. This one walks that fine line and just barely stays on the fair side of that.
It looks like a pale ginger ale. The color is light yellow and it has more of a champagne fix than a beer head, bit odd that bad? The aroma is extremely weak, but at least it isn't bad. It increases with warmth.
The taste is sweet and refreshing but still of beer. There is a little yeast taste, like a what, but just barely. It is not annually to your taste. The aftertaste is sweet as well.
Overall, this is an interesting, refreshing drink.

Rivertowne Pourhouse "Hala Kahiki"
12 oz. can
One of the most charming beers I've had in a while. It's a pineapple-flavored beer and nothing else, nor does it intend to be. It's sweetish but not too sweet, and very subtly tart - think of it as a kind of sweet and extra fruity witbier. It tastes like pineapple, apples, and delicate sugar. It's not bitter, but neither is it cloying. Overall, it's a unique, refreshing, and enjoyable fruity ale. Worth trying, and maybe even worth seeking out.
