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).

Pours clear and golden with a small, white, fizzy head which disappates quickly. Nose is strange; grains, a light fruity note and an offputting body odor note (maybe thatís how passion fruit smells?) Flavor is much of the same; grainy, lightly fruity, and the same offputting note. Palate is light, very lively, watery, and crisp. Finishes short with light fruit and a skunk note. Boring and a bit offputting. Not the best offering from this brewery.

12oz bottle. Pale straw colored with a thin film of white head. Faint wheaty spice underneath a musky earthen passion fruit character in the aroma. Delicate wheat flavors barely peer through a dominant earthen citrus component. Somewhat grainy in the finish with acetic tones. Mouthfeel is very light, somewhat watery.

Another local beer I sampled on my trip to Hawaii. It was a somewhat cloudy gold with a very small, short-lived white head. The aroma was very wheaty, with some yeast, grainy hops, and malt; also light passion fruit tones. The taste was very sweet and wheaty, with some underlying sourness and really noticeable and good passion fruit flavoring. It was a wet and full beer with very low carbonation and fizzyness. Unique and interesting with the passion fruit touch, but still, a mostly unexciting beer.

12 oz bottle. Aroma is stale wheat and some fruit. Hazy gold body with white disipating head. Has a refreshing sweet and sour citrus flavor that isnít bad. Leaves friuty aftertaste like sour lemon on the palate. Not bad but have had lot worse.

Well, I took a chance on this one. It was a hot day, and I wanted a nice summer beer to drink whilst grilling my burgers. This beer pours a really light golden color. Aroma is really strong on the passion fruit. Body is really weak, and the wheat flavor is really light. Im actually surprised this is 5.4%. It tastes like itís a 4% beer. Too watery, too light, and ultimately, too boring. Not terrible, but nothing really stands out.

Tasted from bottle. Aroma is a blend of sweet and sour malt forward, with a slight malt aroma and some citrusy tones that may be either unfermentables or hop flavors. Beer is a straw gold with a white, low-retained head. Flavor has a very grainy complexity, with a slightly sour, dry taste, similar to some dry ciders Iíve had, more so than other american wheats. Finish is clean, with no residual sweetness or bittering. Body is medium, with a low carb texture. Overall, the beer is easy drinking, but just not exciting enough for my tastes. Itís complex, as I expected, but the flavors in that complexity just donít stand out with any deliciousness.

Smells like passion fruit. No head, a little cloudy. Taste is quite wheaty and has plenty of fruit characters. Not for me, but my wife loves this fruit and liked the beer.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 13, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2007 Has this out of the bottle. It has a strange aroma to it. I get some regular wheat and a light white wine smell, which I assume is the passion fruit. Being that I dont think I have had a passion fruit before, that could be it. The beer pours a golden color, it is obviously a filtered wheat beer, with a head that you can hear disappear as soon as it is poured. The flavor is nice. A tart fruity flavor comes initially followed by a mild wheat the a nice sweet fruity finish. Very drinkable. Not alot of substance really. No lingering sweetness or hops. A thirst quencher. I actually like this beer quite a bit and this is not a style that I am too fond of. Check that... had one last night and it did look unfiltered. It was a hazy yellow/gold. My bad!

12 oz bottle: Pours a light gold with a fleeting thin white head. Aroma is dominated by peach and mango. The taste is less clear with some tropical fruit while this is sharp on the palate and almost too carbonated.
