Had the chance to visit the brewery on the big island a couple years ago and loved their selection of beers! Two good things came of this discovery, one being that the whole island serves it so i was able to indulge with most meals and two being now that I know about Kona Brew Iím able to spot it out in stores, purchase it, and share it with friends who havenít been to hawaii...yet!

I tasted this amazing beer at a food tasting event in Newport CA and I was hooked to the flavor, the taste, the aroma and the tropical finish. I was impressed and no wonder why the stores keep refilling their shelves.

Surprisingly refreshing. This beer has a very clear, bright-gold appearance. The taste has a citrusy flavor.

Iím a huge fan of this beer. It is very drinkable, cleans the palate, goes down easy. Itís not heavy nor is it intrusive and pairs well with spicy food. I especially go for this brew on hot days. The fruity undertone (apricot? I havenít figured it out yet) is sublime, actually. It gives this ale a nice lift, a nice aroma. The personality of this beer is subtle, calm, content - in contrast to, for example, an IPA or a dark amber, which can be very bold and dominate the palate.
I go for this beer when Iíve had enough of everything else. It hits the reset switch, it is always good and I can always go for one more!

Had this on draft in Hawaii at our hotel and at the Kona Brewery(which is a fantastic place by the way with terrific food). I was hoping Iíd be able to find it in Colorado, but no luck. Iím surprised by how low everybody is reviewing this beer.

A great, session ale with loads of tropical fruit flavor. Perfect for a hot summer day.

12oz Bottle. I got a six pack of this while visiting Plano Texas. I hadnít had any beer from our beautiful island state but i will probably be giving the other beers this brewery has to offer. the Big Wave is fruity in aroma and has a pleasant aftertaste. I say give it a shot if you like this style of brew. This is a very refreshing little beverage.

12oz bottle from Total Wine in Cary. Golden hue, sparkling clarity with mostly lasting white fizzy head. Fair lacing. Hoppy citrus and grass on the nose. Bitter crisp hop on the initial taste with a light hop and pine finish. Good beer to drink at the beach, on the water or after cutting the grass.
