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!

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.

hfmejias (952) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAY 24, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Can. Pours clear amber nice white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is quite fruity, some malts and yeast, kind of earthy. Taste is also quite sweet and fruity some yeast there too and grain. Overall a good beer very balanced the 8.2 ABV is very well hidden making it a very drinkable brew. Nice...

J_man (782) - Tustin, California, USA - MAY 22, 2013
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 Iím not sure is hops or alcohol (but itís good). Thereís a bit of lemon sourness and orange around the edges and it finishes with a sweet, creaminess. Tasty, interesting beer.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL can into a Blue Moon glass. Served cold. Aroma: Sour fruit. Iíve never had a breadfruit before, so I canít 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 youíre 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!!

KansaiBeerLvrs (2887) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 14, 2013
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.

LtDan (1805) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Appearance: Pours a hazy amber tinted yellow gold. A white head quickly subsides to a thin film.

Aroma: Fruity Belgian nose. White grapes, ripe cantelope, banana.

Taste: Sweet toasty malt, spicy belgian like yeast. Peonounced Spicy euro hops. Citrus and ripe melon fruitiness between the malt and hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Dry prickly bubbles.

Overall: Very tasty, very drinkable for 8.2%, and the fruit pops out as it warms up.

thome50 (1198) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - APR 23, 2013
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.

egajdzis (5525) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2013
[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.
