From Maui Brewing – La Perouse White is a fresh handcrafted Belgian inspired witbier brewed with wheat and European Pilsner malts, spiced with coriander and fresh local Mandarin oranges. This beer was named by Kim Lutz, Lead Brewer at the Maui Brewing Co. Kahana brewpub, after La Perouse Bay which is one of the best and most popular snorkeling, diving and surfing spots on Maui. The bay is located south of the town of Wailea and is the site of one of Maui’s most recently active volcanos.
