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).

This beer was pretty good. It was nice and refreshing, medium to light-bodied with a mild maltiness in the body and citrus, kiwi, and passion fruit (especially noticeable at the finish). Good and refreshing when the classics are not available.

Sampled at the Northern Virginia Summer BrewFest (2008). Maybe I have a soft spot for fruity beers. I thought this one was pretty fantastic. A decent wheat beer with a touch of citrus in the form of tropical passion fruit.

Enjoyed this summer brew on draught at Taco Mac in Suwanee GA. Citrusy, smooth, tasted very good on this hot day. Would have again.

Cybercat (4636) - Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Pours a cloudy honey-yellow with a fairly thick, fine-bubbled white head. Aroma is strong and wheaty with a decided citrus component - but some of this may have come from the orange slice served with it. Flavor is wheaty and well-rounded with a citrus overtone. Lively, refreshing, smooth, an excellent summer brew.

sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - JUN 20, 2008
looks nice, hazy frosted yellow almost amber head looks nice and dies fast leaving a lot of lace. aroma is slightly metalic with some citrius notes light grain and perhaps some far of touch of hops. smooth wheat beer, and much less fruit than expected. yes its light, perhaps its a chick beer, but no doubt well done. a touch of passion fruit is apparent but not much more

This is beer? On tap at the brewery in Kona. This is carbonated passion fruit juice. I like passion fruit a lot so this is a good thing. But I really wouldn’t call this a beer. Good nonetheless.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2008
12oz bottle from Willow Bend Liquors. Pours a semi-clear, lemon-yellow with a one finger white head that diminishes quite rapidly with minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma is strongly of fresh, ripe fruit with more subtle notes of bread, yeast, banana, and faint spice. Taste is also strongly of ripe tropical fruit with a somewhat watery mouthfeel. Notes of sour ripe fruit come through as the beer warms. Finish is quick and watery. A drinkable beer that would be good for the beach.

DialSquare (3975) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2008
12oz bottle. hazy pale yellow pour with medium quick to dissipate head. mild aroma of citrus, wheat and yeast. taste of tropical fruit and wheat. then lemon on the finish. kinda thin palate. a little bland for my tastes.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 16, 2008
2008 Bottle - Decent colour, aroma could go one of two ways, either a faint tropical fruit, or a scrotum that hasn’t been washed recently, flavour follows pretty closely, slight grain, no bitterness to speak of, light malts, not a good wheat or fruit beer, yet another "meh" from the folks at Kona...

A pretty nice wheat beer that is nicely touched with passion fruit. A very drinkable beer with a nice nose. Well worth a try.
