Brewers Description of this Summer Hawaii Beer:
“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.”
The presentation of Kona’s Wailua Wheat is as beautiful and fresh as it’s label suggests. The Hawaii beer is a clean clear tangerine color with aromatic floral bouquet of orange, wheat, and passion fruit. The sweet draw reveals minimal carbonation with a start much like a light wheat beer. The back has a fuller bready finish combining with the emergence of the passion fruit and a contrasting tart kick.
Wailua Wheat is wonderfully crafted and delicious on a hot summer day, even if you are not resting on a sandy Hawaiian beach.
