Don’t get me wrong I like Kona but this just isn’t a good offering from them. It doesn’t taste particularly strong any which way and is just sort of a muddled mess of odd stale flavors and the tiny hint of fruit that you taste at the very end. It becomes much better mixed with their Golden Ale and you can actually taste the passion fruit more strongly.

Bottle from ABC Store Waikiki 201214. A little bit flat in the mouth with not a lot going on. Label says passionfruit but I’m not really getting any in the flavour or aroma. Might be okay on a really hot dat but otherwise a bit ordinary.

Bottle rate from 2012 notes. Pours a clear light golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, light citrus, light banana, just not too much to get excited about.

"this is another one that i have mixed feelings about. had it stateside in a bottle and it was a totally uninspired beer. not worth trying again. had it on tap in hawaii last month (not realizing it was the same beer til after i ordered it) and it was quite good. greatly refreshing. very good wheat beer. i actually had two more before the trip was through. go figure. recommended tap only."

Backlogged rating thanks to some kind and generous soul.The look is clear, golden in color, white head. The smell is wheat, chex, grain, and malt. The taste is malts, cereal, and grainy.

Rated from notes taken 21 Dec 2011 -- The girliest beer I was drinking at the time and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I bet if I were to drink it again I would be gravely disappointed. Hooray, evolution of palate!

Conflicting review. When tasted at Lava Lava it was fantastic. At the brewery, lack lister? Pours cloudy straw. Smells of citrus, mint and herbal. Taste is citrus herbal. Light and smooth.

Tap. Hazy yellow orange pour. Fruit punch, wheat, citrus. Light body and smooth. A bit too light bodied for my taste.

Transfer from BA review on 8-24-12 -
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer was served as a light golden color with a one finger white head. The head faded fast to give only a light amount of lacing.
Smell – A very light citrus and peach aroma mixed with some wheat malt smells as well. Overall the aroma is light.
Taste – I did not get a lot of the passion fruit that is supposedly in the brew. Instead the taste begins with some wheat malt and a little bit of light fruit sweetness (peach maybe). As the flavor advances some hop flavors begin populating the taste. They are almost entirely of a lemon and grapefruit nature bringing a bitterness to the brew. At the end a lemon citrus flavor is left on the tongue, leaving a slightly sour bitter taste that lingers on.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side with a carbonation level that is rather average.
Overall – Ah… nothing to hot here, just a sorta run of the mill wheat.
