Tap at BJís, Plano, TX location.
Pours a weak, thin, and uninspired yellow with an aroma of freshly made plastic and floral skunk. Flavor is undiluted passion fruit juice and plastic. Nice mouthfeel. Different, but kind of refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
