3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle provided by Kona for review. Pours a big fizzy head over a slightly darker than normal gold body. Plenty of bubbles, beer is pretty clear. Not much for me to smell, just a touch of tang (I donít want to call it sourness, itís not that strong) that hints at a bit of fruit in the mix, and 14.5 IBUs arenít leaving a lot of hop to be noticed. Taste goes along with most American wheat styles. Just a light thread of the spicy syrup note that comes from a tropical fruit, so Iím not knocked over by too much fruit extract. Very decent on a hit summer day like this one.

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 Ė 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 Ė A very light citrus and peach aroma mixed with some wheat malt smells as well. Overall the aroma is light.
Taste Ė 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 Ė The body of the beer is on the lighter side with a carbonation level that is rather average.
Overall Ė AhÖ nothing to hot here, just a sorta run of the mill wheat.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.
