Tonight, I’m going dancing. My husband is in a band, actually a really good bad. And I’m not just saying that. So when his band plays at a fun venue and my friends are there, I’m definitely going to be dancing. Therefore, when choosing a beer, I needed to make sure that I wasn’t drinking something that was heavy and would sit in my stomach like a rock. I also didn’t want a high ABV beer. When I opened my fridge, the perfect beer revealed itself to me.
Maui Brewing Mana Wheat
Wheat beers are generally a bit lighter and they always seem to be a bit more sugary or sweet than other beers. Mana Wheat is an unfiltered wheat beer with pineapples added. I really have to close my eyes and try to find the pineapple, but it is there. I would say it appears about 10 seconds after swallowing and a bit quicker as it warms. The sugary sweetness was a perfect choice for tonight’s event. A sunny patio listening to great music would be the perfect place to drink this beer, even though I’m drinking it on my couch. As with most wheat beers, it isn’t going to blow you out of the water with flavor, but sometimes you just need something sweet and simple. This is a great beer when that is what you need. Thanks to Brad and Michaelene for bringing us back this yummy treat from their honeymoon in Maui!
