Aroma is wheat, spices and a hint of popcorn. The flavor is wheat, coriander/spices, citrus, slight fruit and a mix of tart an smooth/bready in the finish.

Bright, Citrusy, Nutty, Yeasty

Cloudy, pale straw in color with a gorgeous creamy foam head and clingy lace. Cracked wheat and subtle coriander define the aroma. Super creamy, lush, and crisp on the palate. Bright citrus notes with an underlying orangey juiciness kick things off. Sweet and floral with a dry, crackery malt flavor. Peppery notes emerge along with a slight suggestion of curry and nutty flavor from the coriander. A doughy finish from the yeast. With its high drinkability, La Perouse White is a most impressive Witbier.

As reviewed in BeerAdvocate magazine #116 (September 2016).

Poured from a 12oz can.

Hazy, pale, yellow/orange with very little head.

Smells of banana and lemon.

Taste is lemon, yeast, wheat, cardamom and coriander. Light and floral.

Thin, slightly watery mouthfeel. Would have benefited from richer carbonation to give it a lift. That said, the finish leaves a pleasant, spicey tingle.

Great beer for the beach. Easy drinking, doesn't bloat. Light and sharp. More refreshing than an island lager or an American wheat.

First of all, was surprised to find a Hawaiian beer at my local grocer. In the cooler too! A very pleasant surprise to say the least. Full of flavor and complexity, it makes for a very fine summer beverage. A hearty thumbs up!

Decent beer. Very fruity, light mouthfeel, not very carbonated, a hint of hops, but mostly picking up fruit and breaded malt with a hint of spice at the end. Not a style I drink very often and probably won't buy this one too often.
