Maui Brewing Company (Kihei, Hawaii) has officially announced that Lilikoi Saison will be available in cans for a limited time beginning on Monday, July 16.
With a name derived from the Hawaiian word for the yellow passionfruit, Lilikoi is a tart Saison “brewed with Pilsner, Wheat, Flaked Oats, and Golden Naked Oats malt and local lilikoi.” Clocking in at an easy-drinking 5.5% ABV and 15 IBUs, Lilikoi Saison offers a refreshingly tropical drinking experience that also holds a “pleasant acidity.”
“The Lilikoi Saison is a refreshing and tart beer thanks to the contribution of tropical flavors from ripe lilikoi and a charismatic fermentation. It pours golden with a haze that filters the bright light of a sunny day.”
– Greg Knox, Maui Brewing Company’s QA/QC Manager
Previously only available on draft, Lilikoi Saison will be quenching thirsts during the summer of 2018 in a far more accessible format: 6-packs of 12 oz. cans. Cans of Lilikoi Saison will debut at Maui Brewing’s Kihei location on July 16 and will enter distribution shortly after that date. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer establishments located in Hawaii and “in most markets where Maui Brewing Company craft beer can be found.” Prost!
