Tis is a great beer. They hit the mark for a hot day I would drink this beer. The Wheat in the beer helped the fruity flavor and the nice soft colors where great. They did not go for the high alcohol which was pleasant to me. Great job and I want more beer please.

Sweet malt aroma. Couldn’t smell any wheat though. Cloudy, dark yellow. Busy carbonation. Decent lace. Distinct mango flavor, though done tastefully. A little sour and thin. But, the mango makes this a very Hawaiian beer. I can’t believe I am the 1st Ratebeerian to rate this brew in 16 months. I realize there are virtually only two places on earth where you can get this brew (KBC’s brewpubs on Oahu and the Big Island) but is it that rare for a Ratebeerian to visit the islands?

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2013 Golden, clear maize beer. Stark lemonade-like aroma followed likewise with a sweet limey-lemon flavor. Tart and sharp. Sounds weird, but I liked this unique beer. Good light fruity beer.

of the beers sampled this was a favorite. All beers made by this brewery are drinkable. Nice grainy nose and a decent bite, quite fresh and clean.
