From the tap at the Koko Marina brewpub, poured a hazy golden color with a small head. Great fruity refreshing flavor with a quick finish.

bobaidan (495) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 9, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pours murky yellow with a big head. Aroma is wheat, banana and a hint of spice. Mouthfeel is lively with lots of carbonation. Flavor is much like the aroma. This is a very good traditional German Hefe.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 19, 2008
A good German Hef here. I was expecting it to be more in the American style without the bold yeast flavors. I was pleasantly surprised when I found the banana/clove flavors were quite apparent. Good solid refreshing Hef here.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Draft at the brewpub in Honolulu. Cloudy deep yellow in color with a nice thick white head. The aromas were of yeast, citrus and banana with a touch of 5-spice. The palate had nice concentration and depth without coming off heavy. Overall, this was a nice surprise and one that I would definitely order again.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 24, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Slightly hazy golden body, white head with good lacing, banana/clove nose. Finally, a US hefe that actually tastes the way a hefe should taste. Good banana/clove/citrus balance with finishing wheatiness.

Nice little pub Heffe. Had it at the brewery on Kona. Went great with their fabulous pizza. Pretty typical banana flavors and hazy color. Very smooth and easy drinking. Nice beer.

Just had a sampler at the Kona Brewery, but enjoyed it very much. It’s your traditional German Hefeweizen with the banana taste. It’s remarkably similar to Flying Dog In Heat Wheat, and Ram/Big Horn Brewing’s Hefeweizen. You might not be blown away, but if you like a nice hef, you can’t go wrong.
