The Mana Wheat Ale from Maui Brewing Company in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii pours out a cloudy orange in color and is topped with a two finger, frothy, white head that slowly reduces down to a film. On the nose, aromas of biscuit, pineapple, wheat, clove and a little banana. In the mouth, the tropical fruit really shine with pineapple and banana showing with a touch of spice. Light bodied. Moderate carbonation. Beautiful lacing on the glass. Slightly dry on an elongated finish with the pineapple really coming through at the end.
Take a good wheat ale and add Maui Gold Pineapple to it and you have Mana Wheat Ale. A great Summer beer whether you're at the beach, swimming in the pool or mowing the lawn. Very refreshing. Recommended.
