Pours a clear orange yellow with a medium-thin white head. Head retention is poor with a few drops of lacing left behind. Aroma is watermelon, biscuit malts, and wheat. Very weak and thin aroma. The flavor profile isn't too strong either, with notes of watermelon, wheat, and biscuit malt. The watermelon comes in a little stronger a few seconds after a sip, but nothing crazy. Mouth feel is thin and watery with some harshness in the carbonation. Overall, it's a decent beer. The watermelon is good in the flavor profile, but doesn't show up much in the aroma.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

12 oz can. Slightly hazy golden yellow pour with a small pure white head. Aroma is cooked vegetables and mild watermelon. Thinner palate. Taste is like biting into the rind of the watermelon. Not good.

Poured out of a 12oz can into a pint. Had a great white head and excellent watermelon flavors. I only have one other watermelon wheat beer to compare this to and that's Hell or High and it's delicious. I like having this beer on a summer day.

DATE TASTED: August 14, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. Weizmann... OCCASION: watching The Hobbit as preparation for the school year... APPEARANCE: bright, misty, densely obscure orange body; head is off-white and thick at first, but settles to a few random slivers of uneven strands... AROMA: odd, funky notes that stray from the banana and clove promised... Instead, a sharp, cloying aroma that is musky and somewhat unpleasant... PALATE: fizzy, oily and smooth to the tongue; leaves the aftertaste that holds its dank citric warmth in the end... TASTE: the pineapple is bolstered by pear and apple, with mango and banana also lending service... the overall effect is flavorful, but the pineapple juice is almost crushing and obtrusive in its presence... OVERALL: the Laka Laka delivers it’s pineapple promise, and refreshes with a reasonable levity... Fruit beers are not my thing, and this leaves some rather blunt edges, but poolside, this beer might be in its element....

Bought this out of curiosity. Nice look and carbonation. Big thick fluffy head very little lacing. Smells great if you are into fruity beers. The taste was a lot better than I expected but it's still more of a novelty. Worth trying but I wouldn't go for a six pack.
