2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer has a distinctive appearance, a lager golden color with a faint haziness. Smell is refreshing, but smells like fruit and not like beer at all. Likewise the taste is weak on beer flavor (some wheat, maybe a little hoppy bitterness) and mostly fruit juice. Taste is not especially strong, but an aftertaste sticks around. Interesting, but not the best from Kona.

"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.

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. It’s not overly sweet in my opinion but there is very little hop flavor at all.
