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!

Clear orange-amber with a small white head. Light lacing. Mild aroma; some tropical fruit and bread. Taste is semi-sweet and very slightly bitter. Medium bodied and smooth. Very easy drinking and surprisingly strong. Good, but for a collaboration brew involving two quality brewers, this is surprisingly nondescript.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Shocked to find that its 8.2%abv. I would have guessed 6 or 7 most. Super easy drinker. Smooth. Balanced on the palate with an initial sharpness and soft finish. Where this offering fails big time is on the nose. Way too tight. Not much to speak of.

Can. Appearance: clear golden with white head. Aroma: Iíve had breadfruit and it does come thru as well as the toasted papaya seeds (I know itís power of suggestion but really does fit)... floral hoppiness. Taste: dough, hay, cereal, grass, ends with a little caramel and citrus. Mouthfeel: thin with medium to high carbonation. Overall: itís not that good. Tastes very close to an adjunct macro style ale.

obguthr (3782) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Can: Unusual aroma of bread, pencil shavings, sawdust, and triple sec. Clear amber, thin head. Lemongrass and thyme flavor with a pencil shaving flavor. Not excessively fruity. Medium body. Unusual, but not gimmicky as I expected. I would enjoy drinking this again.

JPDurden24 (1578) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - FEB 7, 2013
From the can, hazy orange pour. White head. Bready malts with some tangy citrus. Itís ok, not something I would drink too often.

19Ei8hty (1171) - Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Hazy amber hued straw body. Doughy malt character that is chewy and moderately hearty. Big yeasty notes with some sweet belgian candy character. Light ester and some grass. Heavy bitterness at the end.

dfinney23 (1651) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2013
This not too surprisingly has an unusual fruitiness to it. If you would ever garnish a beer with a tiny paper umbrella, this would be that beer. Really quite tasty and points for originality.

Fratto (2616) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Can from pikapp327. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma is bready and tangy. Taste about the same. Good finish.

Cavie (3793) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Beer courtesy pikapp327. Pours a clear yellow orange color with white bubbly head. Aroma is sweet notes with fruit and sugar. Sweet finish.

SDalkoholic (2145) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Aluminum can from South Bay Liquor: Aroma is mild with scent of fruit true to how a papaya smoothie smells with not much else other than that for me to pick up on. Appeared as a glowing burnt orange hue with tint of yellow but had a ton of sediment floating around while head was thick at first but then quickly retreated. The flavor has a bit of sweetness in the initial sipping of the beer but then leaves behind a bitter taste that does have a resemblance to papaya, but I have never had breadfruit and not sure how that exactly tastes so I canít be a judge on authenticity for that type of fruit.
