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.

On tap at Churchkey the other night. It was a cloudy, golden yellow color with a sticky, thin lacing to it.

The aroma shows a lot of juicy pineapple to it along with a touch of coconut. I get a little tartness to it with some citrus rind qualities. Pretty nice aroma overall.

The taste shows even more of the juicy pineapple flavors. I get a little bitter citrus in the finish as well. Again, there is a touch of coconut, but it's not over done. The juicy, fruity flavors were very good.

The mouthfeel is on the thinner side with moderate carbonation. Overall it was a pretty good and interesting beer. They did a good job with the Piña Colada inspired flavors as well as balancing them with each other. The juicy, pineapple flavors really stood out for me as well.
