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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

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

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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