Beer Review: MAUI SOBREHUMANO PALENA’OLE

Maui Brewing Co.’s Sobrehumano Palena’ole – 12 oz. can poured into a goblet. ABV: 6%.

Appearance

The pour reveals an amber-brown hue with a delicate microfilm of bubbles, presenting a rather unassuming visual appeal.

Aroma

Wafting from the glass is a blend of bread crust and sour cherry notes, accompanied by a subtle yeasty funk and hints of passion fruit. While it doesn’t mimic the artificial cherry pie or air freshener scents, these elements are discernibly present.

Taste

The flavor profile unfolds with notes of bread crust and toasted malt, culminating in a tart cherry twang that adds a refreshing twist to the experience.

Mouthfeel

With a medium-bodied texture and restrained carbonation, the beer offers a moderate mouthfeel, contributing to its overall drinkability.

Overall

In the realm of amber ales, Maui Sobrehumano Palena’ole stands out as a truly unique and refreshing option. The incorporation of fruit elements enhances the enjoyment without tipping the balance into an overly “fruity” territory. The anticipation for the sour version adds an extra layer of intrigue to this well-crafted brew.
