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).

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.

Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Pours a straw yellow with a quickly dissipating head. Bitter, nutty, fruity aroma. Same in the taste... bitter fruit. Thick and syrupy texture. I might be glad I tried this one first out of my three Konas to get it out of the way.

not too much to say about this, its got a harsh smell of wheat and fruit that is really intense. taste feels very weak in feel with flavor and a slight unpleasant taste.

nick76 (4144) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2009 The aroma has a strange chemical yeast strain with passion fruit, corn, yeast, and band aid. The appearance is gold with a small head. The Flavor is like the aroma with a soapy finish. The palate is watery. Overall I am not a big fan.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2008
On tap at BJ’s Brewhouse, Plano, TX.. Poured a hazy light gold color with thin white head. Aroma was pretty nice, very fruity, bannana, citris notes. Flavor was different, have not come across this combination before....Similar to a Heff but with a somewhat very slight "fruit punch" notes.....obvious from the passion fruit. medium-high carbonation...Soft, light mouthfeel that could be percieved as watery.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2008
Biscuity nose, with some deep passion fruit undertones clearly present. Slightly hazy, and deep gold color. Not a lot of malt, a bit tart, fruit is not terribly present. Thin, not much substance to it. By any measure, just not a very good beer unfortunately.
