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!

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.

Breadfruit, peach, pear, papaya. A collaboration between Dogfish Head and Maui Brewing Co. 8.2% alcohol saves it.

Squizzle (134) - Idaho, USA - MAR 20, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 Intriguing name but yucky beer. Expected more from Dogfish head this is usual disappointment from Maui Brewing. Thought it would be better.

Wittales (565) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Appearance was hazy orangish gold with diminishing off white fizzy 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are fruit abound with slight sweetness of malt, ting of alcohol. Taste are pear, grape juice, peach, apple, papaya, woody seeds, mineral bite with slight alcohol. Palate was soft creamy CO2 with meduim body, fruity average length mineralic finish. Fruity different brew, very creative.

harrymel (1450) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Canned: unable to tell, all cans only partially labeled Nearly solid light orange colored ale with some patches of light cream foam. Smells of tropical fruit juice, biscuity malts, some hints of passionfruit and more malts. Tastes sweet, reminds me initially of very ripe papaya, then some grape and apple alongside a faintness of pineapple. Medium bodied with a velvet character and small carb. This is an interesting beer, very fruity, but I canít really relate to the individual flavors - like being asked to describe persimmons or something... Serving type: can 12-14-2012

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting, thanks to Hayduke. It poured a clear copper color with no head. The aroma was tropical pineapple juice with a nice bready note. The taste was noticeable hop bitterness with a slightly sweet and fruity medium body. Nice.

10/24/2012. From can. Dark amber color with a white head. Fruity aromas with light malt and hops. Just tropical fruit with medium carbonation. The high alcohol never really shows, so be a bit careful :)

skoisirius (1473) - Earth, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Had this in a can, once. I remember a very island fruited nose, hints of bread, and papaya. Flavor was almost exactly like the nose with a hint of tropical hop, some grass, and yeast with a tiny alcohol bite. Was pretty good, quite interesting.

This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. I poured from the 12 oz can a copper color with a quick fading white head. Aroma is a earthy and of melon. Medium plus in body . Smooth in the mouth. The flavor is fruity, with melon and what I assume is the breadfruit. Finishes somewhat dry.

Gerbeer (1504) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
12 oz can. Pours a cloudy amber with full foamy head and lots of carbonation. Aromas of toasty creamy malts and melons. Smooth and full. Thick doughy flavors with hint of hops and grass. Interesting. Really creamy and thick.

Reid (1806) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2013
12oz can from "Lifesource" in Salem. $2.49 Pours a hazy orange/gold small persistent creamy white head. Not much aroma to speak off but mainlly malty,toffee with some pitted fruitlike in the back. Taste is very much more fruity..mellow fruitiness balanced by nice caramel type malt..spicy/bitter in the end. Actually nice. Mouth feel is good and thick but also easily drinkable not much sigh of the high alc. Overall a nice enough beer.
