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).

malrubius (1711) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 7, 2008
12 ounce bottle in Hoegaarden tumbler. Pale hazy urine color with quickly dissipating white head. Aroma like a rug that a dog has been pissing on its whole life. Flavor slightly worse than the aroma. Sweet and bitter funky thin flavor that sticks to the back of my throat. Gross.

morrdt (685) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2008
12 oz bottle from Total Wine in Jacksonville. Pours a nice gold color with a thin head. Aroma is distinct fruit nose with a touch of grain. You can immediately taste the passion fruit. A bit weird, but a nice beer.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Pours with a rocky, white head with a slightly yellow body. Aroma is of wheat and passionfruit. Taste is pretty bittere. There is not nearly enough passionfruit in the taste.

dyetube (1182) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2008
this beer pours a golden yellow with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a little lacing down the sides. The initial aromas are definitely passionfruit! It was a little odd. Almost smelled bad. The flavors are exactly the same as the smell, wheat and passionfruit. Not quite sure why, but this beer does not work. The flavors do not go well together at all... I was really expecting something exciting but this one missed the boat... Maybe there was too much pssionfruit? not sure but I won’t get this one again. Cheers!

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAR 2, 2008
Purchased 12 oz bottle in ABC store in Honolulu Harbor (about 100 steps from the Aloha tower). Golden-green hazy body with a small white head. Smells sweet, fresh sugar, white wine, fresh fruit. Not much carbonation. Tate is fruity sweet, soft and tangy with mango, peach/passion fruit sweetness on top of wheat. The fruit component doesn’t seem artificial or contrived. Good drinking beer with a soft palate. Underneath cap is a Hawaiian lesson = "lolo" = crazy.

If you like wine coolers(which I don’t), then you’ll love this beer. It’s got some taste to it, but maybe a little too much. The first sip you have will leave you with an interesting feeling. Too much passion fruit taste. It doesn’t feel like a beer.

jb (2192) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2010 This reminded me of a can of Hawaiian punch. Clear, bubbly, fruity, unremarkable. Had on tap in a re-rate at the brewery. Passion fruit/hallertauer hops. Hazy, yellow, nice, big passion fruit nose. Tropical refreshing fruity palate, but not overwhelming. One of the better fruit beers I have had. Summary - wow those are 2 disconnected and divergent ratings on two tries!

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 1, 2008
12 oz. bottle, six-pack from Keils Grocery. Clear light orange color with a small white head. Fairly light, wheaty and fruity nose, tropical flowers and light herby notes. Sweet and tart summer fruits, apricot, clover honey, floral hops, wheat and of course passionfruit. Light to medium body, gently prickly carbonation. Summer refresher.
