Name – Wailua Wheat
Country – United States
Type – American Pale Wheat Ale
Appearance – Pours a pretty clear golden, almost orange, color with a very thin bubbly white head that was gone pretty quickly.
Smell – Really tough to pick up the scents. There is a slight floral presence and very faint sweet fruit smell but didn’t remind me of passion fruit.
Taste – Slight bit of a fruit taste up front. I can pick up some passion fruit in there and almost a slight raspberry taste as well as it was a little tart. Tastes of yeast and wheat in there as expected and a slight spice to it.
My friend Ben asked that I review this as he has become a big fan of it. I can definitely see that this is a good summer beer. It is refreshing and light in body. It reminds me a little bit of Sam Adams Blackberry Witbier. Not the best wheat I’ve had but definitely not a bad choice for these hot, humid nights.
Overall Grade – C+
