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).

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.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale golden with a smal white head. Aroma of citrus and spicy yeast. Taste is the same as aroma with a touch of soft wheat. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and a slightly tart finish. Good.

BernardusFife (3) - USA - APR 25, 2008 does not count
Good carbonation, scent and looks, but it tastes like light fruity gingerale. I will give it another try; maybe my tastebuds are out of whack.

Draft at the brewpub. Lightly hazy straw body, passion fruit nose. Strong passion fruit flavors with some finishing wheatiness. Very refreshing.

jjuf1853 (1227) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2008
Bottle pours a slightly hazy, pale yellow color with a medium white head. Pungent aroma of tropical fruit, herbs, and grasses, but also hints of ammonia. Flavor is mostly dominated by the sweet passion fruit with subtle wheat. Crisp and refreshing, but I wouldn’t want to enjoy this on a regular basis. However, I think this would be a good beer to offer at a cookout for the casual beer drinker looking for something a little different.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2008
Thanks Daknole! Unfiltered honey gold body with a small short lasting white head. Nice carbonation. Hard to find aroma. Some fruit flavor is evident along with wheat and honey. Slightly acidic. A tart Lifesaver aftertaste. An interesting beer but not particularly a good one. My first from Hawaii.

JorisPPattyn (7771) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2008
Draught Wheat-golden, clear beer with small white rim. Aromatic, simple esters and an aroma as from bamboo shoots. Citric, light fruity, like passion fruit. Sweet-ish. Refreshing, light body, some wheatslickness. Nice interpretation. This beer is probably perfect under the Hawaian sun, watching the surfers at the beach...
