BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Kona Brewing Co.
Hawaii, United States
konabrewingco.com

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
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 Ale. This golden, sun colored ale has a bright, citrus flavor that comes from the tropical passion fruit we brew into each batch. Sit back, relax and enjoy paradise anytime.

Very light in color. Crisp and easy to drink. Lovely overtones of tropical fruit. This the perfect summer brew in. my opinion.

12 oz bottle. LIght fruity wheat malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Just like the nose, light fruity wheat malt flavor with an odd subtle bitterness in the finish. Light body, moderate carbonation.

Hazy yellow with a thin head. The aroma is yeasty with fruit. Bread and malt are present in the aroma. Balanced and medium in body. The beer is not nearly as enjoyable as the others from this brewery.

Bought 6 pack from Don Quiojte $7.77
Clear golden color
High carbonation
Light mouthfeel
Subtle fruit taste
A refreshing beer to drink, but it has too light of a taste. I'll drink it if given to me, but I won't buy it.
