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.

Draft at Honolulu airport. Golden / bronze body, mostly clear, with a small ringlet of head. Aromas of sweet malt. Thin body with a hint of pineapple-like sweetness. Needs more body and carbonation. Meh. Davros (3208) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2017
Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows doughy wheat notes, soft floral hops and lemon rind.

Bottle at home, all alone. A light, fruity wheatty ale with a bit of tart passionfruit. Tropical,fresh, and bright. A great beer for a hot sunny day. DWestrick (765) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2017
bottle. very simple, light and crisp beer. Not my style, but not awful by any means dlihcsnatas (755) - Temple, Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2017
For a wheat brew it is surprisingly very clear golden color with small head. A strong fruity smell and taste that is different for me since I have never eaten passion fruit before. While unique in that aspect it as interesting as it is good. To top it all off it was a tad bit cheaper than most other beers of comparable nature. Might have to get some more of this one.

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).

Sweet malts, artificial fruitiness, fairly sweet. Not horrible, just kind of generic fruity wheat beer. Niko100 (2930) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Hazy golden color; Medium body; Aroma of yeast/wheat, some fruit, & spice; Flavor of slight sweet malt, tropical fruit, light grain, and citrus; Finish is slightly sour/tart; Refreshing - decent. scoth (685) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2017
Pours clear golden with a medium white head, excellent retention. Strong passion fruit aroma with notes of biscuit, caramel. Light refreshing body, smooth, good carbonation. Lightly sweet, gentle bitter finish. The passion fruit is predominant but not overwhelming. A really enjoyable American wheat with a tropical twist. chucklemation (1714) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2017
Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is wheat and bread malts and some fruit, a little skunk. Flavor zippy tropical fruits, passion fruit, and citrus with wheat malts. It does lose some of its flavor pretty quickly. Has a crisp, highly carbonated body. Nice and refreshing.
