3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted at the brewery in Kona. Strong tropical fruity flavors in a wheat beer. Sweet and even. Easy to drink in small doses. Good and appropriate for drinking in Hawaii.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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.
