From notes. On tap in Hawaii.

Poured into a pint glass, it shows the cloudy yellow appearance you would expect, minus the voluminous head. The head is small to medium, fading a bit too fast, with some lacing.
Citric notes, some faint bubblegum, clove on the aroma, with some (also faint) bubblegum, citric fruits and clove on the palate.
Reasonable.

Serving type: on-tap

Kona Hula Hefeweizen, ontap @ Kona brewpub restaraunt

Pours a cloudy hazed straw, good sized head and lace. Aroma of citrus, clove, bubble gum, banana. In the flavor, more bubblegum, soft banana and distant clove. A light citrus hop character is there. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequate carbonation and fairly smooth. Overall, a good standard hefeweizen good for the warm weather.

I had one of these with lunch/dinner last night. It went well with grilled mahi mahi. I've gotten used to the one Kona ale, so I thought this would be nice (there weren't a lot of choices).

It tasted a little on the light side. In offensive and creamy, like the other Konas. Somewhat disappointing as I wished for a more powerful come-and-get-ya flavor.

It was drinkable enough, but I will seek other local beers to try and avoid this any further.

Gently roused. Pours a thin layer of light caramel head over a super cloudy light puke brown liquid. Smells strong of banana accompanied by a lesser intensity clove. Some malt sweet. Berry esters, cherryish sour and a touch of vanilla.

Tastes malty sweet with banana and very little clove. Wet throughout with a refreshing ester jump in the end and a drying of woody hops, gentle clove, and mild carbonation acrid. Underlying caramel ties it all together. Md-light body and modest carbonation.

A fairly dark amber beer - darker than most hefes, nice banana/clove nose. A little on the burnt side.

First taste is of banana, rather full mouthfeel. Citric bite..but not overpowering, a bit sublime. Burnt malt flavors which compare with many of the great hefeweizens. Banana and clove throughout, just in the same smokey, roasted malt way. The flavors just lean a little too close to smoke than I prefer.

Okay..a much better hefewieizen than you would expect in the islands, not the best here - but a well built beer. Smooth yet rich beer.
