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).

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.

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 (6862) - 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.

Bottle. Nice crisp golden color. Smells very doughy and metallic. Interesting flavor, hints of orange and passion fruit. A little tart on the palate. Drinkable, but it tastes like it is going bad. Almost feels heavy on the palate too. Creamy for such a golden beer.

American wheats are some of my favorite beers, while passionfruit is easily one of my favorite fruits. Even so, this was a slight bit disappointing, but not terrible. Poured a light gold with a nice head in a weizen glass. Smell of passionfruit was light, but noticeable, along with a touch of wheat after a while. Very unique taste, with hints of passionfruit throughout, and definitely in the aftertaste. My bottleís body was almost creamy, and less carbonated than I prefer, keeping it from being as crisp and refreshing as I like in the style. The passionfruit flavor gives the beer a slightly odd musty, tartness that I didnít think meshed really well together also. Overall, Iím glad I got to try it, but wonít be rushing to get a 6 pack before itís not available anymore.

My friend Chaz just came back from Maui and he brought back a few bottles of beer. I went over tonight for a tasting. This brew did not form much of a head, but the aroma was big on the passion fruit. This wheat was filled with the passion fruit flavor. It was not overpowering, but light and refreshing. I recomend this for warm weather drinking. Almost felt like I was in Hawaii.

I had this on draft at the brewpub. This is more of a fruit beer than a wheat beer, IMO, the flavor of passion fruit stnads out as the key characteristic. I enjoyed it.
