Really muddy, looks like crap. It looked at least this bad at the brewery and I’s been avoiding it, but avoiding Kona beer in the islands is impossible so here we go. Aroma is very yeasty with some banana and light phenols. Tart, lightly phenolic and way too yeasty...the best examples don’t taste like old socks. Barely drinkable.

hopdog (11579) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2007
On tap at the Kona Brew Pub on Oahu. Poured a deeper and cloudy golden yellow color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of bananas, cloves, and pepper. Tastes of the same but on the weaker and somewhat watery side. Light citrus in there as well.

rosenbergh (10625) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2015
Draught at the Kona Brewing Co, Hawaii Kai, HI. Hazy orange color with a small to mid-size white head. Yeast, some fruity sweetness, banana and some wheat in the aroma. The flavor is yeast, mild bitterness, wheat and malt. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pretty good for a hefe...it’s got a good dose of the banana/clove things going on, but not too much. light and refreshing with a minimal hop presence. not bad."

DuffMan (9592) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
On tap @ the brewery in Kona. Cloudy golden topped by a dense white meringue. Beautiful banana and bubblegum aroma, classic. Zesty fresh wheaty with lovely banana flavour. Authentically executed.

On tap at Kona, Koko Marina, August 2013. Hazy yellow/orange with a small white head. Aroma and taste of yeast, some banana and spices. Easy to drink with a soft mouthfeel.

Had on tap after a tour of the place while vacationing in Hawaii. This was one of their better beers for sure.

Ernest (7344) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2006
Draught, Kona Brewpub, HI. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is murky dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (bread), with notes of banana and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. One of the better offerings from Kona (and yeah, that includes the Da Grind, which I’m not fond of), an accurate representation of a German Hefe (who the heck put this in the db as an American Wheat???).
