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 Ė 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.

Editorís Note: Lilikoi Wheat was renamed to Wailua Wheat (both on draft and in bottle).

12 oz. bottle poured to a 1/2 pint fest glass displaying a hazed, straw tone, with a fair amount of bubbly white head foam that reduced rather expeditiously to a ring & film, and left a band of light, ribbony lacing on the glass. The aroma was mildly sweet, with some tartness, and mainly presented tropical fruitiness that reminded me of berries, sweetened rhubarb, and orange peel. The flavor offered low bitterness, less estery expression than the nose, a bit of light grain, and some cidery nature. Light bodied, with lively, seltzery effervescence. Finished a little dry, but basically refreshing.

PhillyCraft (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2013
On tap at Pour House, slightly hazy golden color with lots of carbonation. Thin clearish head. Aromas and flavor are floral and fruitty wheat, passionfruit, lemon, grain, and hay. Light and refreshing, almost lager like. Not as bad as its rating imo.

Bottle provided by Kona for review. Pours a big fizzy head over a slightly darker than normal gold body. Plenty of bubbles, beer is pretty clear. Not much for me to smell, just a touch of tang (I donít want to call it sourness, itís not that strong) that hints at a bit of fruit in the mix, and 14.5 IBUs arenít leaving a lot of hop to be noticed. Taste goes along with most American wheat styles. Just a light thread of the spicy syrup note that comes from a tropical fruit, so Iím not knocked over by too much fruit extract. Very decent on a hit summer day like this one.

12oz bottle pours clear yellow. Taste like slight fruit and wheat flavor but pretty bland.

DMLINAZ (290) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2013
From a 6-pack my wifeís aunt brought over for a party. Not my kind of beer, but not altogether unpleasant. A lot like a lager with some fruit, spice, citrus. Aroma is straw and lager. Slightly crisp mouthfeel and flavor is lager-like with a slight sweetness that is enjoyable. I wouldnít actually know a passion fruit if itís in there. Refreshing on a hot day, but not something Iíd seek out.

Bottle. Decent wheat flavor with a little fruitiness. Tasted almost nutty to me, which wasnít good.

EtTuCthulhu (1049) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 12, 2013
The appearance of this beer is a pale yellow color with a large white head, and the aroma blends the scents of passion fruit, wheat, and citrus hops. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly sour; also, the palate fused a medium body, slick texture, long finish, and an average carbonation. Overall, this beer isnít great due to how it doesnít quite deliver on the balance of fruit with the rest of the beer, but it isnít that bad of a beer to drink during the summer heat.

Bottle. Yellow pour with very little head. Smells of fruit. Hard to distinguish must past the fruit in the taste. Fine for a summer night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Much orange and other citrus with a bit of eathiness underneath. A bit tart, lingering finish.
