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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The beer is a very clear golden color with a small white ring of head and no lacing. The beer is well carbonated but absolutely no lacing. The smell is a mild wheat scent with a mild sweetness that lingers on. It doesnt do much for the nose with the smell. The taste is your typical wheat beer with the wheat up front and the mild fruit taste in the background. It is okay but the taste doesnt linger around long enough to tell the flavors. The mouthfeel afterwards is decent with the what flavor hanging around but is very crisp and clean. Overall, this beer is your typical run of the mill wheat beer that doesnt have any pop or stand out from the rest.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light blond colour with small white head. Taste is lightly fruity, bit of bitterness. Easy drinking. Aroma is tropical fruit, bit sweet and syrupy, but alright. Overwhelmingly seems like just a wheat beer with some syrup.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly Hazy Yellow, Small Head, Light Lacing. Probably the nicest thing about this beer is its aroma - Passion Fruit. Sweet, Passion Fruit, Wheat Sour Finish. I think it is Too Sour and Over carbonated. Drinkable, but just OK for me...

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Asahiya. Grainy, very floral aroma. The passionfruit note is like sweat mixed with cologne. Clear medium straw color. Grainy, grassy initial / fruit takes off a bit in mid and melds with the mild hops / finish is dull but clean. Thin body. The fruit adds a somewhat dark note to this light style. Okay.

Honey, pineapple nose. Deep passion fruit flavor, sour sweet finish. Fun drink but a bit too fruity for my liking.

Smells fruity and with some mild grain. Pours pale golden mostly clear, no head at all. Taste is moderatly sweet with a little bit of tartness from the passion fruit. It definetly tastes like passion fruit but not much else. The body is a little too light and watery but could be sessioned at the beach like most of Kona’s core line.
