COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dogfish Head superstar Sam Calagione, will be our fearless collaborator! The result 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 Heads DNA (Delaware-Native-Ale) yeast. You wont want to wait until October to try it, but oh it will be worth the wait!

marcus (6772) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 24, 2013
12oz can from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours amber with a nice beige head and a light toffee and citrus aroma. There is a strange blend of taste including caramel malt, yeast and bitter fruit. Not real tasty.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Can from Total Wine in Sac. Aroma and flavor of slight 90min and breadfruit, maybe some papaya in there. Loses carbonation quickly, but not a bad flavor. Definitely retains the slight hoppiness. Pretty good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of tropical fruit... Deep orange in color... Flavor is sweet and citrusy up front, sucrose on the palate, finishes with hints of citrus hops... Interesting tangy flavor... Definitely worth a try ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can poured into my Dogfish Head signature glass. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of overripe cantaloupe, mango and papaya, and Belgian yeast. Tastes of sour fruit, nuttiness Im assuming from the papaya seeds, and this wierd tropical sour flavor that Im figuring is the breadfruit. It also finishes slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation and a dry finish. Overall this was a really good but odd tasting. Nice to see a Maui Brewing and Dogfish Head do a collaboration. Very Hawaiian influenced but I can taste the dogfish head yeast for sure. Too bad this is a one time thing. Should have forked out the money for a 6 pack while I still could oh well.

Pours a wonderful ruby orange color, with fine lacy head. Interesting aroma of rotting fruit, wet leather, and apricots (rather pleasant, actually). Tastes of pear, apricot, and fig. Not your average tasting beer, but definitely an awesome one to try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

keokani (20) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Aroma: bread, cereal, toast, resin, floral, dough. Appearance: golden, orange, hazy, white foam head. Taste: light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour. Palate: full body, thick feel, soft carbonation, lightly astringent finish. Overall: The breadfruit and papaya seeds give this beer a unique aroma and flavor. The hearty and satisfying quality is imparted by the the starchy breadfruit. The 8.2% alcohol content (by volume) is not noticeable at all. It is easy to drink and has a mild finish. This is a pleasant beer in every aspect, and instantly one of my favorites, especially in the fruit beer category. I could easily consume multiple servings.
