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).

If you like wine coolers(which I don’t), then you’ll love this beer. It’s got some taste to it, but maybe a little too much. The first sip you have will leave you with an interesting feeling. Too much passion fruit taste. It doesn’t feel like a beer.

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.

Sweet malts, artificial fruitiness, fairly sweet. Not horrible, just kind of generic fruity wheat beer.

scoth (683) - 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 (1629) - 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.

jinroh (1525) - ESTONIA - APR 5, 2017
Nice golden pour, white foam. Aroma is quite grainy, classical malt domination and not that much fruitiness - although I was expecting to find some because of added passion fruit (and I bought it because of that). OK, maybe some berries there if you look hard enough. Taste is bready, carbonated and only very mildly hopped. Fruit character is somewhere there, some slight sourness, but overall quite subdued. OK beer but well, not really special, regardless of the alleged passionfruit.

superspak (5511) - Michigan, USA - MAR 27, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2017 12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 11/16/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, passion fruit, melon, berry, pineapple, pear, wheat, cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, and floral/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, tropical fruit, and light fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, passion fruit, melon, berry, pineapple, pear, wheat, cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, and floral/yeast earthiness. Light floral bitterness and slight tart/tangy wheat on the finish; lingering notes of lemon, passion fruit, melon, berry, pineapple, pear, wheat, cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, and floral/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, tropical fruit, and light fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Light-medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.4%. Overall this is a nice fruited pale wheat ale. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, tropical fruit, and light fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful, well balanced, and not watery feeling for the ABV. A pleasant and nicely enjoyable offering.

Westkyoto77 (635) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 9, 2017
Bottle from ABC Stores. Slightly turbid gold, fine lacing. Subtle fruit aromas, medium to light body. Lost its zing pretty quick but showed some appetising flavours of honey, citrus and passionfruit. Nice.

3.5
gschrade (1084) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2017
I had this at Horseshoe. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, citrus, fruity. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
