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 it’s way up into the 90’s.
I’m 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...it’s hot, I’m 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, it’s worth a try for the fruity alone.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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. Doesn’t 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.

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.

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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
