COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Limited release. Swimming in a fresh water pool at the base of a cascading waterfall is what we all imagine we would find in paradise. On Maui, follow the old Hana Highway and you will find such a place – Wailua Falls. This plunging cascade of clear water is the inspiration for our Limited Release Wailua Wheat. This golden, sun colored ale has a bright, citrusy flavor that comes from the tropical passion fruit we brew into each batch. Sit back, relax and enjoy paradise anytime.

Editor’s Note: Lilikoi Wheat was renamed to Wailua Wheat (both on draft and in bottle).

Drjohnrock (428) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Red Hook/Kona/Widmer summer variety 12 pack purchased at Western Hills Kroger,tasted on September 15, 2013. Slightly hazy yellow color, sweet fruity nose with some underlying skunkiness, thin body, interesting passion fruit flavor that needs to be a bit bigger. I wouldn’t expect a brew of this style to remind me of an imperial stout but the taste needs to be stronger. Not bad but could certainly be better.

Tac (112) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Pours golden body with almost no head, no lacing. Aromas of some citrus, apple and passion fruit. Taste is very pale, sour with a bit of sweet, bitter finish.

kramer (4857) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded pretty quickly. The nose is light, your basic American Wheat with just a light hint of tropical fruit. The flavor is very light on the fruit as well, just a hint of the passion fruit on the finish, which I suppose is a good thing all considered. Rather light and airy with just some bready malt and wheat. Light bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation, short finish. Meh, would be better if I were drinking this on a beach in Hawaii instead of on a couch in my Pennsylvania basement.

Beergeek23322 (2129) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2013
4/20/2010. From bottle. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Aromas of light malt, tropical fruit and bread. Refreshing and lot that complex. Easy to drink on the beach on a warm day.

sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - NOV 11, 2013
pours a hazy yellow/gold with no head. This wheat beer is lightly sweet and fruity, the passion fruit adds a good flavor to this wheat beer. There is a light graininess here and this beer is very dry and a bit over carbonated.

SilentJo (68) - Chocowinity, North Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Poured a hazy yellow with little to no head. Didn’t get much from the aroma, and the taste is rather bland with moderate carbonation. Doesn’t really stand out like the other Kona beers I’ve tried have.

penguinfinity (103) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle. Smells mildly fruity. Pours clean with no head and almost no bubbling, looks like apple juice. Nice sweet flavor, very drinkable but nothing special.

Wolfderek (7) - - OCT 22, 2013 does not count
Aroma - slight wheat malt upfront with a tart passion fruit that overwhelms the nose. Almost sour Color - golden straw with slight haze from wheat. Thin white head that vanishes quickly. No lacing on glass at all. Flavor - clean crisp wheat malt upfront with a tartness from the passion fruit. Flavor disperses very quickly and has very little lingering flavor. Mouthfeel - highly carbonated and light. Very thin wheat body Overall impression - a very decent wheat ale with hints of passion fruit. A very good beer on a hot summer day after mowing the lawn. Brings me back to Hawaii. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 16, 2013
from Bier-Bienne - clear pale golden beer with no foam left; perfumy with notes of pear and passion fruit; pretty sweet and medium-bodied, quite dry and long fruity finish - soft and quite drinkable
