On tap at the brewery. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Bright orange. Very hazy. Small white head that vanishes quickly. Nothing after a bit.

Smell - Coconut and pineapple. Pretty straightforward.

Taste - Pineapple and coconut again. Some sweetness and grain. A fruity estery kick that reminds it's a beer.

Mouthfeel - Slick bodied. Thick for a wheat ale.

Overall - I get it. I get why people like it too. It just doesn't do much for me.

I had this on-tap at Churchkey in DC. Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden color with two fingers of white head and beautiful lacing.

Smell: Reminds me of a pina colada. Coconut, pineapple, and other tropical fruit. Very light and refreshing.

Taste: Light and crisp with lots of coconut and pineapple. This one is easy to drink and just a bit sweet.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This would be a wonderful warm weather beer. So light and refreshing. I'd love to have more.

On tap at Funkh Buddha's 1 yr anniversary. Pours a straw color with a thin line of foam around the edge of the glass

Smells of faint pineapple and wheat, close to what suntan lotion smells like

Taste is quite good, coconut and pineapple are well represented with the thin flavor or wheat/straw

Mouth feel is light with an adequate amount of carbonation.

Overall another solid beer.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a hazy bright yellow color with a nice, fluffy white head. The nose brings forward fairly-strong notes of pineapple along with some underlying coconut. Fairly intense and well integrated. The flavor takes it up another step, as in addition to the fruit, there’s an underlying wheat character that actually tastes like beer. With the nose, I was afraid that this was just going to taste no different than an actual pina colada. Body is light and very refreshing. I could drink this all day. By far my favorite of the event.

Growler thanks to joshtahan (Reddit), shared with rudzud and threelions.

Nice big creamy head, fades at a med pace with nice lacing that just layers on the sides, super murky hazy plain wheat golden orange colored.

Nose brings nice pineapple fruit, fresh pineapple, with mild coconut background, little creamy wheat, fresh citrus fruit and just lots of pineapple.

Taste is loaded with pineapple, pineapple juice all over, fresh citrus and pineapple, with mild coconut, little creamy wheat, touch of toasted wheat and cake batter and little caramelized sugar, the wheat creamy flavor leads to vanilla like and then all together pineapple upside down cake. Finish is a little sweet still, more pineapple and touch of coconut.

Mouth is med bod, light creamy, nice carb.

Overall very good if you like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain... and you have half a brain!

First had: on tap at Woody's, Philly, PA

Bright yellow pour, cloudy, with a small cap of bubbly white head. Aroma was, well, of a pina colada, kinda sweet like what you'd get from a water ice. Taste followed the nose, with what was essentially a pina colada mixed drink in beer form, pineapple blended with coconut, sugar sweetness. Cool and refreshing, fruity and extremely easy to drink. You could put ice in this and garnish it with a little umbrella and it would be nearly indistinguishable from the actual mixer. I guess that could be either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how you look at it, in that this hardly resembled a beer in any way. The more conservative drinker might say, "If I wanted a pina colada, I'd just get one." However, I gotta give credit to the brewer for making this beer. I don't know how he could possibly get a beer to taste like this, and I don't want to know. All I know is I want more.
