3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 Iím assuming from the papaya seeds, and this wierd tropical sour flavor that Iím 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.

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 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.

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. 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!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
