Drank at the Kona's Hawaii Kai restaurant.

The usual Hefe appearance, a cloudy straw colored beer. The smell is slightly herbal with banana tones. Somewhat fruity. Not overpowering.
The taste is malty and sweet. Definite banana and fruity. A slight bitterness at the end. Nothing spectacular for a Hefe.
Mouthfeel was cleansing with light carbonation. Overall, not one of my favorite Hefe's. Not something I would try again.

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.

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.
