COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dogfish Head superstar Ė Sam Calagione, will be our fearless collaborator! The result Ė a beer-epiphany never before innovated called Liquid Breadfruit!

To celebrate the cornucopia of a Maui-grown harvest, we will ingeniously combine local breadfruit (or ulu) & toasted papaya seeds into the recipe of an imperial golden ale fermented using Dogfish Headís DNA (Delaware-Native-Ale) yeast. You wonít want to wait until October to try it, but oh it will be worth the wait!

I have to disagree with many of the comments Iíve read before trying this. The name of this beer is pretty spot on with the tasting experience. If one were to agree with that, like I do, then to rate it poorly would be pretty unfair. I feel like this beer does justice to a balance between bread and fruit - especially with an 8. something alcohol content. Tropical fruit on the nose, a blended bread and fruit taste, and slightly dry bread finish with a hint of fruit tartness. Overall, enjoyable and a nice journey into something different.

Curiously odd but interesting beer. Cloudy; thinnish head. Very bready and earthy. Chewy texture with some alcohol burn in the aftertaste. Hot fusel nips. Slightly cloying. Pleasant fruitiness in the background. Mild bitterness.

maley1 (806) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2012
Cloudy apricot colored pour with small white head. Aroma of papaya, bready and citrus. Taste of papaya, citrus dominates. Sweet start gives way quickly to a tart citrus bitterness. Interesting beer but not all that good really. One time try.

12oz can. Pours a cloudy orange-golden color with an off-white head. Plenty of sediment floating around. Aroma has some nice, ripe tropical fruit and citrusy notes along with some earthiness. Taste is sweet, and a bit tart, with a bit of hop bitterness. More juicy fruits coming through. lighter bodied and what seems to be a short finish. The fruits and a bit of spice do keep on going just when you think the beer finishes. I am getting some mild alcohol warmth in the chest, but it drinks easy. Depending on the abv, I might be able to drink several of these in one sesson. Good stuff.

Chuckaduck (669) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Pours a cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is too sweet; sugar, fruit, banana, wheat, melon (?). Flavor is strange; fruity and sweet, melon, banana, also bitter and acidic. Iím so sorry to say this. The aromas and flavors of this beer continually reminded me of vomit. Thatís awful to say but that was my experience. Maybe I got a bad can? I love both of these breweries but something about this beer was stomach turning and awful

Brouwerij (942) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Pours a hazy orange with two fingers of quickly settling rocky white head. Aroma is fruity, pineapple, bread. Flavor is fruity up front, peach, pineapple, papaya, with mildly bitter bread/dough/wheat tones. Alcohol is noticeable in finish. Moderate carbonation and light body. Significantly fruity and noticeably warming, this is a unique beer. Not quite my type of beer, but a high quality brew nonetheless. The bitterness doesnít quite work with the fruit.

bhensonb (11491) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Can from Bine & Vine. Pours kind of golden copper with a transient white head. Aroma is a bit earthy. Then a hint of melon? Full bodied. Flavor is earthy and a little nutty/roasty. Not sure Iím getting fruit, but thereís something that could well be. I have no idea what breadfruit tastes like. Finishes fairly dry and sort of earthy bitter. Itís very nice when I quit worrying about what it is.

XmnwildX12 (2078) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Has some sweet fruit aromas and some earthy funkiness. Cloudy golden color with white chunks in it. Taste is a bit of fruit and earthiness, has a copper tasting finish.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Grainy, fruity nose. Papaya or peach or something, herbal, a little pepper. Strange. Pours golden amber, frothy white head. Flavors of grain, peppery earthy notes, peach, papaya, and more grain. Easy to drink for an imperial golden ale. Interesting to drink.
