Passion Fruit, Fruity, Tart, Bitter

Cloudy pale yellow with a short-lived, snappy head, Liliko'i Kepolo has a fruity, wheaty, bready and spicy nose. It’s tart and bitter, but not overly acidic. Tropical and juicy with plenty of delicious passion fruit flavors and a tamed sweetness. The bitterness is a bit grassy with a pleasing edge of citrus zest, followed by a dry wheat character, soft spices and some doughiness. The addition of passion fruit is a sublime twist on the Witbier style and it makes for a great tequila back, too.

As reviewed in BeerAdvocate magazine #103 (August 2015).

On tap at Avery. Pours a slightly-hazed yellow-straw color. Light passion fruit. Quite fruity. Subtle, but absolutely there. Delicious. Super drinkable; had to get a second glass of this one.

Look: Cloudy, thick, off yellow color.

Smell: Passion fruit up front hint of sweet smells and wheat.

Taste: Not what I expected. Not so much wheat but you get the spices and passion fruit.

Feel: Felt like a tart saison or even a sour. No where remotely close to a wheat which for me was a good thing.

Overall: Super tasty beer loved it!

12 oz can. Pours extremely hazy dark yellow with a huge frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is lots of sweet tropical fruit (passionfruit I assume) with some wheaty malts.

The flavor is sweet and tart tropical fruits with some wheat malts and a little Belgian yeast. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, tastes like a mild wit with lots of tropical fruit juice. I like it.

Pours cloudy gold with 1/2 inch head. Smell is tropical fruits. Taste is big passion fruit, hay, wheat, orange, and lemon. Very tasty. One of the more interesting takes on a witbier that I have had in a while. I am going to look to get more of this.

On tap at the Avery Tap Takeover at The Common Table.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma is extremely fruity. I get a lot of passion fruit and other tropical fruit notes, as well as some wheat. The flavor is more of the same. The passion fruit, orange and pineapple and mango notes are really fresh tasting. I also get some biscuit and wheat notes, as well as a little bit of white pepper and a light amount of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A great fruit beer that went very well with brunch.

Straw yellow to almost neon yellow in color. A fingernail of eggshell white coats the top. Light lacing. Aroma of passion fruit and a hint of coriander and a bit of pale wheat is present. I taste sweet passion fruit and there's a slight taste of coriander and pale wheat. The mouth is light, crisp, and refreshing. A great twist on this style.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a very hazy yellowish orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid finger of white head which settles into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A very juicy and fairly sweet aroma with a big scent of citrus fruits along with some spice. Huge upfront scent of passion fruit along with other tropical hints of mango, pineapple, orange, lemon, grapefruit, peach, and grapes. Belgian yeast with some hints of pepper. Malt hints of wheat, cracker, grains. A very good fruity aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and sweet taste with notes of citrus fruit and Belgian style spice. Big juicy tropical fruit taste with notes of passion fruit, mango, grapefruit, pineapple, orange, lemon, grapes, and peach. Belgian yeast with some notes of white pepper and slight funk. Malt notes of cracker, wheat, and grains. A really good juicy taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Nicely crisp, juicy, and very smooth.

Overall: A very good twist on a Witbier. The added tropical fruit goes great with the wheat.
