Friends of mine who recently visited France brought home some Tahitian beer which had nice polynesian artwork on the can. It didn't only look cool it also tasted surprisingly good!

Good taste, Klas. This one and Negra Modelo are probably my top favorite ones.

Hefe Weizen (sp?) Dunkel . No lemon please!

(I was just talking to the owner of the distributer (gk skeggs) that carries Hinano for the u.s. last week. They might be getting a (bamboo ben) tiki bar for a trade show in Vegas coming up. Hmmm. Hinano will be coming out my ears!!!)

Jag tücker om Hinano ocksa... det är gutt.

Good job finding our best imported beer...in Tahiti, this beer is a religion, with tee-shirts and hats of it everywhere, and there's even tahitian songs about that beer.

I thought I had tasted a very rare exotic beer that no one here had heard of, but obviously I was wrong

That's very good swedish, only a couple of small errors (Jag tycker också om Hinano... det är gott - I also like Hinano... it taste nice)

If anyone in Socal is interested in trying this (and many other) beer, it can be found at Galco's old world grocery store in Highland Park.

I make beer too, and have been trying to decide what a Tiki beer should contain... I like fruity beers sometimes, and I make a good cherry flavored beer, but my attempt at a pineapple beer and an Orgeat beer both failed miserably.

Oh well... back to the hard stuff...

Greetings all,
Whilst enjoying myself at the Great Canadian Beer Festival here in Victoria I had this fantastic beer made by the Howe Sound Brewery. It had a nice banana smell to it. Somthing like that would be great as with a Tiki name. Here's a little about this particular one:

Hangdog Hefeweizen 5% alc./vol. A German-style wheat beer brewed with 60% malted wheat and 40% pale barley. The slight banana and clove aroma comes from the special top-fermenting yeast that is characteristic of many weizen beers. In German, "hefe" means yeast; "weizen" means wheat.

I tried many raspberry and cherry beers as well, all soooo good. I'm brewing a beer at home right now that's a Mexican Cerveza, not quite right for a tiki name. I wonder if I can find a good recipe for a hefeweizen?

Aloha, eh
-Tikiwahine

I've seen Hinano at The Wine Country on Redondo Ave in Long Beach.

TikiBars,
My friends & i successfully made a peach hefe, but i think a tiki beer would have to have some kind of tropical fruit in it. I am attempting to find a mango or passionfruit extract for a pale ale or hefe recipe.

Lambic fruit beers from Belgium are the best out there. They would be a great template for your tiki beer experiments.

For folks in the South Bay: Bristol Farms (Redondo, Manhattan, Palos Verdes) carries Hinano as well as an excellent selection of rums and liqueurs. (Of course, I always keep the Castaway Lounge well stocked with it also...)


Hefe weizen without lemon? EEeeewww...
