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 – 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.

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

12 oz bottle in Hawaii. Very fruity aromas. The Yeasty wheaty aromas that I expected were not there. More fruit on the flavor. Some Wheat twang, but mostly fruity. Not bad.

blueduk (118) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Very pale yellow with an orange tint. Disappointingly non-existant fizzy head. Nose opens with the standard tang of an american style wheat beer before opening into a significant amount of citrus. If you’ve ever sipped passion fruit juice, that flavor will be unmistakable, but I believe there’s a helping of some citrus hops backing this as well. If I were a bee, I’d be attracted to the perfumes of this one. The beer is on the light side of medium-bodied and is a little thin on the palate. It’s malty, dry, and crisp with a short, clean finish. The passion fruit reappears at the end. As flavored wheat beers go, you can do worse. This might be a good one for your anti-beer friends.

Ratman197 (9806) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Bottle poured a clear golden yellow with a small quickly disapating white head. Aromas of skunk bud, passion fruit and straw. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, straw, light fruitiness and a hint of citrus with a crisp slightly dry finish. Overall a boring wheat beer other than the nose.

bottle. golden pour with great clarity. rising bubbles to foamy white head. big passion fruit, wheat aroma. slightly sour. nice grain and wheat. passion fruit is very nice. present but not in your face. very nice summer sipper. I think they accomplished what they set out with this one.

Reid (1898) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 14, 2007
12 oz single purchase;( packaged on May 02/07) Plain clear golden yellow, small splotchy white head. Definatlly lots of passion fruit in the aroma at least, nice underlieing wheatiness.. Good aroma. Taste is not quite as nice as the aroma, its quite bland up until just before it goes down the throat, then there is a burst of passion fruit and lemon. Some wheat too. Its Ok on the palate, average. Ok drinker, though I am happy I only bough a single.

jake65 (2615) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Bottle: Pours a transparent yellow with a small white head that is gone quickly. Nose of tropical fruit and wheat, fairly mild in intensity. Taste is a bland wheaty, watery, citrus flow. Not to thrilled about this one.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle poured a clear gold color with small white head. Aroma was a stange fruit with some hops and wheat. The taste was one of a kind with a funky pasion fruit flavor mixed with tart wheat malt.

IndianaRed (2436) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle pours a clear very pale yellow witha thin quick fizzy white head. After a moment it is gone and ther is no real lacing. Stale cereal and fruity apricot aroma. Pale light malts, a slight wheat and apricots and faint wheat notes. Dry somewhat chalky palate and a touch citrusy, leamon on the trailer. Pass.

Bottle from Henry’s. Pours medium golden in color. Aroma is slightly sweet with wheat and a bit of fruitiness. Flavor is fairly grainy with a little bit of a fruity flavor. Some bitterness as well. Fairly refreshing.

alexanderj (3317) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 7, 2007
Bottle; Pours a wheaty yellow; with medium to small white head. Aroma was of wheat and alot of fruit (guessing passion fruit). To me this beer was pretty bland; normal american wheat style, with a passion fruit twist. Easy drinking, and a hint of malt. For the style, it was probably above average.
