4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet and grassy aromas from a medium orange/yellow body with a soapy white head. Sweet tropical fruit flavors of guava, pineapple and banana (is that breadfruit?) which is balanced by a nice dry bitterness that I’m not sure is hops or alcohol (but it’s good). There’s a bit of lemon sourness and orange around the edges and it finishes with a sweet, creaminess. Tasty, interesting beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 fl oz / 355mL can into a Blue Moon glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Sour fruit. I’ve never had a breadfruit before, so I can’t say if this smells like one or not. It does smell good though.
Appearance: Hazy burnt yellow. Foamy white head that lingers a little bit.
Taste: Tart fruit. Sourish yeast. Pears! Pretty tart beer, if you’re into that.
Palate: Medium body, longish finish. The 8.2% is hidden quite well, so watch out.
Overall: Made me really want to go to Hawaii and try a breadfruit!!

I picked it up for about 600 yen from Antenna America. 8.2% it pours a great gold color and has a tropical fruit aroma which is normal as it is made with breadfruit & papaya seeds. Golden ale, then papaya, a hint of nuttiness before finishing with a crisp bitterness. This beer would rock at the beach! A nice mildly fruity golden ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a slightly hazy golden with big white head. Aroma is DFH IPA, slight tropical fruit. Fresh papaya is there but then the rancid garbage papaya sneaks in and takes the cake as the beer warms. This is an example of what BMC tries to do. This beer at first was awesome, cold out of the fridge. As it warms.....eeeek. The taste is tropical fruit forward at first, when cold and some mild bread. As it warms the DFH malt bill comes out and is very pronounced from their IPA line. I guess that is the yeast.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Canned 12/31/12] Hazy orange color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, toast, tropical fruits, some oxidation. Taste of citrus, toast, orange, tropical fruits, and a semi-sweet finish. Oxidation was surprising given the age.
