3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can from Specs in Round Rock. A big off white head slowly settled leaving spider web lacing. Kind of a copper hue and pretty much clear. Fruit galore in the aroma. That is tasted first and it is complex passion fruit. Rich malts wete tasted after that and then spices. Even later mildly bitter hops showed up. Each of those dominated the flavor at their peak. Much more intetesting than any other fruit beer I have had.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the April 2013 3R6P beer tasting. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a bright golden color with a large foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was odd tropical fruits, bread, honey, perfume and rock candy. The flavor was tartish bread, honey, vague tropical fruits, perfume, rock candy and a bit of sulfur. Medium length finish. Medium body. Odd.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hazy ornage and golden coloured body with a bit of a light copper glow, all with a half centimetre tall ugly off-white head. Aroma of light fruit, a touch of malt and just about nothing else, perhaps some honey. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong malt with a bit of yeast and a increasing bitter flavour that just persists and gets worse. Aftertaste shows a very bland flavour with some bitterness, a good dose of body (not sure where it comes from), a touch of yeast and perhaps the slightest bit of fruit. Overall, a pretty bad offering, perhaps one of the worst from Maui (but not DFH - there are way worse ones) yet. This isnít really ready for public consumption, unless you want to alienate folks who love either/both breweries. I wish I didnít take up room in my suitcase across the whole of the pacific and america for this. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Liquor Collection in Honolulu, Maui, Hawaii for US$3.50 on 10-December-2012 sampled at home in Washington (on the other end of this great land) on 20-September-2013.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Some tartness to the aroma. This is a strange beer. Itís frutiy but hard to identify any papaya at all. Iíve never had breadfruit so maybe thatís what Iím getting. Thereís some hops at time but also a fair amount of tartness. Strange but good. Really hard to rate, even after the whole 12 ounces.

GABF, 2012. This one sounds more interesting that it is. I was expecting exotic flavors that I might not recognize, but what is there is sweetness with crackers. Gold color. Clean finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can... Poured hazy amber/orange with a thin, slightly off-white head. Earthy tones, bready malts. A yeast character similar to DFH beers for sure. Some citrus, bitterness, and astringent rind tones too. Fizzy, foamy, full mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Pours a very hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is definitely fruity, with some slight bread as well as an almost citrus-berry note. Taste is actually a little sour, and with a lot more bite to it than I expected. Not bad, but Iím not a fruit beer fan, really.
