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).

Bottle. Clear deep gold color with 1-finger white head. Aroma of hopcitrus, slight honey, slight passion fruit. Tastes of pale malt at first, with mid-palate honey, hopcitrus and some mild finishing fruit. Medium palate heft. The fruit is integrated well into this beer.

Wailua Wheat is a clear golden ale with a white head that quickly fades to a faint blotch. Itís quite sparkling and it leaves good lacing. There is a lot of passion fruit in the nose. The malt comes through as carroty. It smells like a mixed drink-- a bit perfumy. It has a medium light body that is prickly on the tongue and leaves the mouth a little chalky. The hops blend seamlessly into the fruit flavor. There are elements of champagne (not brut) and maybe dry mead. The hops finally deliver at the end and rattle the palate. Who woulda thunk it? Itís a nice surprise-- a tropical session bitter. Any reason why this isnít in the fruit beer category?

Rated while drinking: Pours a pale piss color with a chunky white head. This mostly dissipates with OK lacing. Reeks of the passion fruit, but smells exotic and very appealing. I bet I would never associate the aroma with a beer in other circumstances. Tastes almost identical to the aroma. Lots of passion fruit in the mouth. Doesnít taste like an extract though; very natural and fresh tasting. Crisp and clean on the palate; a little watery but expected in a wheat beer. If this beer were readily available, Iíd definitely buy this over the Long Trail Blackbeary for my refreshing summer beer. Iím sure lots of ladies would dig this beer too.

12 oz bottle from bottletrek.com. Pours a golden light yellow with a head that quickly disappears. Aroma is grainy and can barely smell some fruitiness. Wheat flavor and you can faintly taste the passion fruit. Light mouthfeel, high carbonation and no finish. Interesting beer, but not that bad. Good on a hot summer day.

Oh My God. I go to this brewary every time at christmas, and have always been impressed with thier beers. This is definetly my favorite. Great passion fruit flavor, but not too sweet. Very refreshing wheat beer, goes down easy. I hope this one stays around for a while.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 6, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 This draft brew from the Oregon Brewers festival poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was floral malty and dirty sock. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a hoppy aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of malt hops breads and wheat. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

Bottle. Pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma is interesting, definitely tropical fruit smelling. Iím not too familiar with passion fruit, so I donít know if that is it or not. Taste is more of that same fruit, some graininess. Not much of an aftertaste, light body. Very interesting brew.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is sweet grain and a fruityness. Flavor is a bit fruity and some wheat but not much else. Like most have said, not terrible but othing great either. Also kinda pricy at $7.50 a six pack.

Tap. A mild to light wheat beer with a foggy yellow body and a very clean finish. A white bubbly head was there as well.

From a bottle our of a $6.90 six pack purchased in Ashland, Oregon this poured a clear golden yellow with a nice white head and minimal lacing. Nose of grainy and rich with citrus. Mouthfeel light but refreshing. Flavor somewhat sweet and not much finish. Refreshing to drink, however, and a decent wheat.
