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 Ė 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.

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

Aurelius (4127) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Sweet Hurricane aroma with some off wheat musk, especially as you first open the bottle. Lightly hazy pear gold, nice label and cap. Lightly briny, fruity, underbittered, very desperately in need of a lemon or lime. Not sweet. Medium to medium light body. No glaring flaws, except for blandness, but if youíre looking for a better wheat at a similar pricepoint, then go with Sam Adams Spring, Leinenkugelís Sunshine or just plain old Blue Moon.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 25, 2008
from bottle. Pours a pale, slightly opaque color with a small head. Smells of passion fruit. Flavor is weak, except for a weak passion fruit. This is no doubt a fun beer, but it is altogether weak, and the flavors not well blended.13. Magic Hat #9 (sampled multiple times. Flavor is indescript, but not in a good way. Muddy, maybe apricot, light malts, nothing too complex.

robinvboyer (3086) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2008
clear golden color. aroma of sour apple cider, and cheap white wine. Flavour is slightly sour, and odd. I dont taste passionfruit, its a sour wheat flavour, wow, this is odd. Its a quenching summer beer, but an odd one.

Guinness4Duff (515) - Tallahassee (and Poconos, PA), Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is reminiscent of grapefruit. Taste has a nice wheat base thats accented by a bitter fruit presence. Not bad.

12 oz bottle. So I had to mow my friends lawn, the grass being about 1.5 ft tall. Even though the moving started at 8am, it was already 75 degrees quickly working itís way up into the 90ís. Iím done, still with grass on my legs terribly in need of some liquid refreshment. Hmmm...stuck the hand into the beer fridge, grabbed a porter...no. Grabbed a wee heavy....no. Grabbed a Wailua wheat, ding ding ding...itís hot, Iím sweaty and the beer is cold and golden. Pours a golden with a weak head, Smells a lot like a white sangria I had once, fruity, citrus and a bit tart. Tastes, pretty good, not great, but not bad. It hit the spot for chilling me down a bit. Easily sliding down my throat and leaves a sweet aftertaste. Interesting beer, itís worth a try for the fruity alone.

Courtesy of Quake1028. Pours gold to straw with weak white head. It has a big fruity aroma with lots of juiciness. So this is what passion fruit smells like. Doesnít smell much different than a fruit drink. The taste is the same with tropical fruit sweetness and some tart fruitiness. I get almost no base beer in there. This was supposed to be a wheat beer or something?

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Draft at the brewpub in Honolulu. Light yellow in color with a thin white head of medium sized bubbles. The nose showed off passion fruit, citrus and wheat. The aromas were quite nice, especially with the passion fruit twist but I wish they were more powerful. The palate was also a bit weak but really nice on a warm Hawaian day.

Ummm. If you know what a passion fruit tastes like, and like it, you have a shot at enjoying this beer. I had to smell it 5 or 6 times before I realized it was SUPPOSED to smell like that. 12 oz. bottle: pours a deep golden color, sort of a sweet tart assault on your nose. Starts of citrusy and sweet, then fades to a bittersweet dry finish characteristic of passion fruit.

alraicercsu (166) - Ft.Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Bottle. Golden in color with a thin white head. Intial scent seemed off and then sweetened up with lots of passion fruit and wheat. Tastes intially like pinapple juice then like a wheat beer.

trade with daknole Plain clear golden yellow, small splotchy white head. Definatlly lots of passion fruit in the aroma at least, nice underlieing wheatiness.. Good aroma. Taste is not quite as nice as the aroma, its quite bland up until just before it goes down the throat, then there is a burst of passion fruit and lemon. Some wheat too. Its Ok on the palate, average.
