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 – 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.

Editor’s Note: Lilikoi Wheat was renamed to Wailua Wheat (both on draft and in bottle).

Bottle. Clear deep gold color with 1-finger white head. Aroma of hops and citrus, slight honey, slight passion fruit. Tastes of pale malt at first, with mid-palate honey, hop, citrus and some mild finishing fruit. Medium palate heft. The fruit is integrated well into this beer.

Very natural passionfruit aroma and flavour with a light wheaty malt base. Very refreshing, very well balanced in my opinion. We ate a lot of fresh passionfruit when we lived in Australia, and this brought back some terrific memories (extra points for stirring nostalgia).

WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2008
12oz a special sample bottle from the World Beer Cup, a gift from Bill. Pours yellow wiht lots of carbonation and a bright white head. Nose has a low fruitiness. Taste is dead. Craptastic.

Oakes (17668) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2008
Hazy straw-amber. Very subtle passion fruit aroma underneath a somewhat crackery, metallic maltiness. Heavy passion fruit taste, balanced by crackery malt but there is no semblance of integration, just two components clashing. Fairly dry finish for a fruit beer. Not much wheat.

hopscotch (11088) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Bottle... Hazy straw-colored beer with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is of pale cereal grains, passions fruit and white pepper. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Restrained grain, fruit and spice. Balanced, but boring. Crisp, thin, dry finish.

kyzr (1546) - Montana, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Gold pour with bright white head. Nose of citrus fruit and wheat. Flavor is very sweet with tropical fruit and hints of wheat and lemon. Very smooth texture and clean finish.

TheBeerGod (6221) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Bottle. PKGD ON MAY0808 on bottle neck. Hazy golden pour. Small fading white head. Nose is very fruity with soft sweet maltiness, strong wheat/grains and a touch of yeast. The tropical fruit notes become a tad stronger as does the wheat. The yeast is also present but subdued. Sweet malts round this out. The body is rather light but fizzy rather than creamy. Finishes with more tropical fruit notes and big wheat. Lighter yeast, hint of lemon and sweet malts. Not bad!

20080628 12oz bottle Pretty standard appearance for an American wheat beer, hazed/cloudy golden with small-medium white head of creamy but diminishing white foam. Not sure why so many are put of by the appearance of this beer. Aroma is of tropical fruits, produce aisle, orange, and background of wheat. The mouthfeel is fair enough with mild carbonation, light sweet quenching, little to no bitterness, and very mild fruity sweetness to finish. Not cloying. Flavor has a nice subtle dose of the fruit, obviously passion fruit, with an overall tropical fruit vibe. Some notes of old or overripe fruit towards the end, but then overcome by the wheat and previously described finish. In general, I find nothing objectionable about the beer and in fact have enjoyed more than a few bottles in the last week or so.

2.6
dmac (6262) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2008
12 oz bottle from Ocean Wine and Spirits. Well why bother with a whole rating on a beer under a 3?? It’s ugly, smells not so good and tastes like something I don;t want again. To refresh my memory down the road if I have to...........Hazy golden orange, small to no head, slight fruity but lots of cheap wheat aroma, flavor has a little kick of fruitiness then wheat and hops, palate is thin and overcarbonated, way overrated even at 2.87 when I rated this gem. Nuff said??
