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).

Pours a pale straw with an ephemeral fizzy white head. Smells like bud light and passion fruit. Tastes like bud light and passion fruit. I get a little green tea, lemon, very light grain, wheat, tart finish. Palate is fizzy and watery. Meh.

Pretty weak. Thin and watery. Some fruity aromas and flavours. K notes of light grain add well. Average.

Great beer by Kona Brewing. The only unfavorable I could say about this beer is it is a shame it’s a limited edition.

Klar ljus gul med vitt skum. Doftar svagt i allmänhet, känner av iaf fruktsallad med tropiska omslag, jäst, vete öl, citrus. Smak: Citrus, malt, gräs, "frukt kärnor" - troligtvis från passionsfrukten som krossats.

12 oz. bottle. Pours clear gold/yellow with a soft white head that settles to a wispy film. Aroma has lemon zest a subtle apple scent and malt/yeast. Taste is slightly bitter and tart with more hidden lemon and cider flavors along with malt and yeast. Palate is thin fizzy and dry. What a fruit beer???

fidelis83 (2208) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Clear gold pour with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma is citrus and tart passion fruit, fruity floral notes, floury wheat and sweet malt. Flavor is wheat, lemony citrus, toast, tart passion fruit, dishwater and light spice. Light body with a strong, blanketing carbonation and off dry, chalky feel. Decent stuff.

Bottle. LIght fruity wheat malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Just like the nose, light fruity wheat malt flavor with an odd subtle bitterness in the finish. Light body, moderate carbonation.

Fizzy frothy medium white head; blonde body; Distinct passionfruit aroma, very nice. Also tastes like passionfruit, especially the finish. Very light, very mild hopping, like a PBR if PBR tasted good and was made with passionfruit.
