Served from the can in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I like pineapple. ... Yup. Anyhoo, this stuff pours a partly cloudy brass topped by a finger or so of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises pineapple juice, light dry wheat, and a splash of apple juice. The taste generally brings in more of the same, but the pineapple is more bitter than sweet, and the wheat goes all wet and broken. It's not a pleasant flavor, lemme tell ya. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a liquid feel. Overall, though constructed of solid pieces, the combination just doesn't quite work.

Nice refreshing wheat beer from the solid Maui Brewing Company. 1/22/20 date printed on can. Pours a medium golden color with a little fluffy white head and some spotty lingering lacing. Smells faintly of pineapple, wheat, grain, corn, malt and a little faint fruity hops. Taste follows the nose, decently balanced and quite flavorful. Smooth, crisp, pleasant mouthfeel with good carbonation. A great beer to drink on a hot summer’s day.

It was OK, not bad, a little bit too bland and too much pineapple, but refreshing

Look: semi-clear light yellow with a big fluffy white head

Aroma: wheat, yeast, pineapple

Taste: The flavor is mild wheat, some yeast, pineapple, fairly bland but thirst quenching. It is nice enough.

Body/Overall: it is light easy drinking

This is basically a bland wheat beer with very little pineapple aroma or flavor. There is nothing objectionable about it other than the lack of pineapple which is kind of the point in a beer with pineapple in the name.

Appearance: Pours a light and lemony, bright urine color that is cloudy and yeasty.
Aroma: Lemon and grass aromas. Some fruit citrusy fruit. Not a specific fruit stands out. Very much smells like a German Pilsner or kolsch, but slightly more fruity.
Flavor: Citrus upfront- Lemon, pineapple, some tart green grape. A pale grainy and yeasty malt presence. Subtle honey. Finishes dry and slightly tart.
Feel: Lighter bodied and smooth. Tartness and yeast dries the palate. Some astringency left on the palate. Alcohol is well-hidden.

Overall: Much less pineapple than I expected, which I actually prefer. I wasn't wanting a pina colada. Still, lots of citrus fruits. Pleasant grassy hop aromas. Yeasty and tart to finish nice and dry. Flavors and tartness make it drink a like a Kolsch, but focuses on the citrus fruit and yeast rather than the grassy hops. Pineapple is not overbearing and honestly sort of hidden making it fit the American Wheat style quite well. Overall, a very easy-drinking beer that beat my expectations.

Pours a slightly hazy gold colour with a small creamy white head.
Nice cream of wheat mixed with pineapple chunk aroma!
Taste is the same creamy wheat and nice understated fresh pineapple..simple yet nice.
Mouth feel is fine and thickish for style.
Nice simple tasty beer

In the tap room this and the coconut porter were just about the perfect beer, unfortunately it is maybe a 3.5 out of the can here on the east coast. More reason to go back to Maui.
