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).

keanex (1379) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Bottled May 12, 2012.
Appearance: This is a crystal clear beer with a golden hue with lazy sparse carbonation and a thin white head.
Aroma: Light sweet malts intertwine with a slightly citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Iím guessing the aroma is passion fruit, but Iíve never had it so Iím not sure.
Taste: Much like the aroma this is fruity, reminds me more of concord grapes on the finish, but not much else.
Palate: Medium body with very light carbonation.
Overall: This is pretty bland, maybe it got oxidized, but this just isnít very good. Iíll pass from now on.

The body has good clarity and a nice golden color. It builds up a tall white head full of big loosely packed bubbles that quickly fade out. This only makes for a very little spotty lacing. The aroma is pleasant and has a little bit of sweet fruity mango and papaya like notes with a light grainy base. Its flavor is very close to what you would expect from its aroma. It is sweet overall and has a pleasant hint of tropical fruitiness. The finish is sweet as well and there is no balance from hops. Itís not overly sweet in my opinion but there is very little hop flavor at all.

Iíve had this during itís Lilokoi Wheat days, and during itís Wailua Wheat days, and now during itís Wailua Ale days. It has a common undertone of lilokoi or passion fruit on the nose and palate. Pouring a nice clear golden color. Easy drinking summer beer.

Not much to remember. It was a very good lager wheat beer and easy to drink and enjoy.

ciaranc (782) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 11, 2014
12oz bottle from SuperValu. Pours a pale, clear gold, lots of bubbles, thin, minimal, frothy white head which doesnt stick around. Toasted malt and citrus on the nose. Flavour is sweet malt, mild grainy notes, followed by fruity sweetness toward the finish. Its light, quite fizzy and fairly uncomplex. Short fruity, malty finish. Not a bad lawnmower beer.

Aroma - there is a dehydrated strawberry, wheat, citrus like quality about the aroma. Also pleasant. Appearance - golden yellow; liquid is clear, with some nucleation; the white head is about 1/2", but it ends up with no head quickly. Taste - the taste is enjoyable - there is a fruity note has a fruit element presumably passion fruit, now I havenít had passion fruit, but what I get is a dehydrated strawberry like taste; there is a wheat flavor as well, but is mild Palate - body is light; texture is thin; carbonation is average; the finish is slightly dry and has a little dehydrated fruit quality about it.

It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of wheat, touches of honey and some fruit. The taste was of sweet fruit from start to finish. The body was light and slick with soft carbonation. Nice.

Grumbo (525) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle brought back from Hawaii by Paul. Hazy yellow colour with a good sized white head. Passion Fruit and grass aroma. Fairly sweet but not overpowering. Fairly high in carbonation. Not really something Iíd normally drink but it was OK.

bottle rated 8/30/13 - Pours dark gold with a small head. It smells of caramel malt and a hint of fruit. The flavor is of lightly toasted caramel malt with a hint of fruit. It could use more of the latter. Itís bubbly and light bodied. Itís rather mediocre.
