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).

Bought a 6-pack of 12 oz Wow......waaayyyy too much passion fruit in this one. If your looking for a wine-cooler in beer form, this is for you. Iíll pass.

thin and watery. very little aroma but what little there is being passion fruit. dominating passion fruit flavor with a little grain. easy drinking and not too sweet to turn me away but very simple.

Bottle from my bro who brought it from Hawaii. Cloudy golden color. Smell of wheat, malt, citrus and wine. Taste of malt, wheat, citrus, tart and dry. At sometimes, theres to much wheat, and other times, there is to much sweetness.

Well I know good wheat beers and this isnít one. Pours a somewhat hazy yellow like it doesnít know whether itís filtered or unfiltered. Good carbonation but it comes with a stale wheat malt flavor and something I canít pick up - so it must be the passion fruit. Finish is dry for a wheat and uneven. Good for Kona itís just a seasonal so they donít subject their customers to this year round.

sloth (2661) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Small white head that fades quickly to a thin ring, sparse spotty lace. Hazy, pale gold color. Nose is lightly spicey, yeasty with faint citrus notes, minerally. Body is light, low carbonation, almost watery. Light toasted malts, lemony notes, faint grassiness, lightly metallic with some yeasty notes as well. Dry, light, crisp quick finish. Bottle procured in a trade with SDbruboy, thanks Cliff!

Pours a clear gold with small white head. Aroma of sweet passion fruit and grain. Flavors are pretty much the same. A bit artificial, but still refreshing.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2007
12oz Bottle, 9/16/07. Pours a deep gold with foamy short lived foam that leaves very subtle lacing. Aroma is Ringwood yeast at itís best, slightly tart and fruity, with underlying artificial passion fruit notes. Flavor is surprisingly balanced, figured this one to be a sugar bomb, but that fake fruitiness is just too damn annoying.

PorterPounder (6390) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 Rerate After working on the six pack over the weekend - it began to grow on me. Up a notch or two. Original 2.3 Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium golden, slightly murky, with a light, quickly fading white head. Faint, berry notes - some passion fruit comes through in the finish but overall is a bit muddled. Boring, lifeless mouthfeel. Overall, needs work.

bottle. hazed yellow with a thin white head that leaves a film on the surface. aroma- not very inviting, i just finished a 5 hour XXX trek across denver & this is not starting well. cooked green beans & something i guess is the passion fruit coming through? sharp dead flower scent. the taste made me die a little bit. this is horrible, probably the worst beer iíve had this year. tangy chemicla fruit yeah, now i know not to buy a beer with passion fruit again at least. tastes like old ladies smell. thatís all i can take. iíve got to go brush my teeth now. 2 3 1 1 3

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle: Vibrant straw, slight golden hue, minor haze, moderate foamy white head, decent lacing but nowhere like most Wheats, very light carbonation.   Fairly strong Passion Fruit nose, otherwise a bit of cereal and plant roots.   Minor Passion Fruit sweetness on the tongue, a little dry, a little mealy (cereals), and with a good bit of Cactus too.   Perhaps its a bit wheaty, but everything else dominates this beer.   Finishes fairly clean, lingering Passion Fruit, Cactus, and cereal.   Certainly interesting, and one of a kind, but I wished it would be more Wheat like and less fruity.
