1.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Wow, this is horrible! Hazy golden with a small fading head. Aroma is mostly wheaty/minty with a vague tropical fruitiness. A touch of spiciness. Goes downhill fast once you drink it however, with a sharp acidic twang, like bad crotch. Empty finish but with a lingering grossness. Wow, and I got 5 more of these. I hope my neighbor likes it.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale straw yellow. Foam dissapears to absolutely nothing and no carbonation makes this beer resemble apple juice. Bready smell but also a soapy aroma with bannana as well. A sweet tasting beer with a wheat feel and a pleasant hop bite. Palate is even and pleasant. Not a total package but taste of this beer make up for its crummy appearance.

On tap. Pours hazy light gold with a slender white head. Sweet aroma of toffee and some tropical fruit. Sweet flavor, dominated by passion fruit, with the toffee going along for the ride. Quite possibly the quintessential girlfriend beer.

I seem to be reviewing a lot of wheat beers lately. ’Tis the season I guess. The passion fruit smells awesome and gives the beer a great aroma, melding well with the slight hop aroma. The fruity taste is good at first, but sort of becomes sour, perhaps too much passion fruit. But hey, one can never have too much passion.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Normally will not drink beer with fruit in it. I didn’t realize it had passion fruit added until I got home. But for a fruity beer this was o.k. Maybe the fact it was a cloudy wheat beer made a difference. Nice P.F. aroma, big white head, fair lacings. Interesting taste. The fruit adds a certain tang to the normal wheat beer flavors and is quite nice. Might be the choice for beer to take to a Luau . Would enjoy it in Hawaii for sure. Refreshing. Packaged on May 8, 2008.
Nice to have that date, thanks Kona Brewing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This pours with a finger of head and looks cloudy. The smell is really punchy, it must be the passion fruit. Taste is very citrus with a the passion fruit on top. THe aftertaste isn’t to pleasant. I don’t think i’ll get this one again

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with one finger white head with some spotty lacing. Nose is funky passion fruit gone bad. Palate is light malts, wheat and a sweet and sour passion fruit finish. Lighter mouth feel. Interesting beer. Not something I’d try again, but interesting…

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bready and unpleasant american wheat beer with a hint of passion fruit in the nose. The fruit becomes more apparent with every sip any my enjoyment decreases at the same time.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours clear, golden yellow. Thin, pure white, foamy head. Aroma is of strong smelling, rich & sweet, tropical passion fruit. The flavor has a light malt character blended with a taste of tropical fruit flavor extracts. Citrus and guava burps. Light bodied. Lots of tasty summer time flavors to make you the King of the Pool! I really like this beer.
