Enjoyed this beer fresh on tap at the Brewery in Dec 2015. You can’t get it in the bottle (which fyi are brewed and produced in the Portland branch not the small Hawaiian brewery. So if you are in Hawaii make sure to get your Kona Beer fresh on tap!) We love our Germany and Belgium wheats and we find that it’s hard to find comparable ones in N. America, but this was pretty darn good! Sadly, you can only get it when you’re in Hawaii... mkel07 (5993) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2014
On tap at Hula Grill Waikiki 251214. Great aroma of banana with a deep yellow colour and very hazy in the glass. Breakfast beer. George999 (457) - Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Cloudy golden appearance, light head, aromas are banana, flavor is wheat, great balance of spice but very subtle flavors. Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Really muddy, looks like crap. It looked at least this bad at the brewery and I’s been avoiding it, but avoiding Kona beer in the islands is impossible so here we go. Aroma is very yeasty with some banana and light phenols. Tart, lightly phenolic and way too yeasty...the best examples don’t taste like old socks. Barely drinkable.

pretty good for a hefe...it’s got a good dose of the banana/clove things going on, but not too much. light and refreshing with a minimal hop presence. not bad." Alanthebeerguy (213) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
At the brewery. Pours cloudy pale yellow. Smells of wheat, yeast and banana candy. Belgium like qualities. Taste is banana, herbal with some spice. Smooth and easy drinking. Average Hef.

On draught at Kona Brewing Co. Cloudy golden color. Aroma is banana bread and wheat. Taste is banana, clove, lemon, and wheat. Substantial wheat body with lingering banana aftertaste. Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Hazy straw hue with white head that held a ring. Aroma is clove forward, melon, banana, straw, honey. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with CO2 sharpness in the finish. Overall this is an interesting Hefe. It is reminiscent of Belgian style esters mixed in. Not bad but not great either.
