12oz can. Pours a slightly hazed honey golden with average slightly off white head. Bit of juicy tropical fruit, light honey, peppery spice, boozey white grape tannins, maybe a touch soapy. Tight prickly carbonation. Light maltiness hits first, some peppery floral perfume sweetness, finishes with dried papaya and apricot sweetness.

This one is growing on me. Had it on draft a few places and now in a can at home. Fruity nose, never had breadfruit before, not sure if you can taste it. Surprised to see it at 8.2 abv.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can from Total Wine - Pours a hazy amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is esters and spice. Finish is lingering esters. Flavor is the same. Medium body. An uneventful and disappointing beer. Do people really like these goofy beers?

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of rothy slightly off-white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit and orange hops, caramel and bready malts, and some tropical fruits.
T - Starts off with some grapefruit, orange, and citrus hops with some sweet caramel malts and some tropical fruits. Though the middle some bready flavors come through with tart fruits. The finish is a mix of citrus hops, caramel malts, bready flavors, and tropical fruits.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and fruity finish.
D - Very drinkable. Good different flavors that come together in a well balanced beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours cloudy golden with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of grain with lightly fruity and lightly spicy elements. Flavor is very fruity, like overripe tropical fruit, bready, yeast, a hint of bubblegum, and an unpleasantly bitter and boozy finish. Brings to mind a tropical pulque, minus the thick texture. There is a flavor in the mix that reminds me of a couple of higher ABV Dogfish beers that I am not especially fond of. Interesting, probably worth a try, but not all that enjoyable.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2012 Nice! Crazy tropic fruit smell - reminiscent of an odd gum as a child. Big flavors of tropical fruit, grain and nice mouthtfeel from the wheat. Was a tad astringent on the back end - but overall I enjoyed it’s slightly tart drink... also, is this 8.2%? even more surprising

Pours a hazed golden orange color with a white head. Very interesting tropical fruit aroma. A fair amount of breadfruit, some perfume, a light breadiness, and a lot of yeast. Strong bready malt character, some tropical fruits, a bit of banana, and some yeast. Light citrus sweetness and flavor, mild spice, and a strong perfume character.

Tastes like a solid pilsener. Some bready and grassy notes. Not exactly sure what the papaya seeds or breadfruit contribute, but decent session beer.

In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a blonde colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, pineapple and alcohol with a lovely fruity character. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely.
