Dogfish Head superstar – Sam Calagione, will be our fearless collaborator! The result – 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 Head’s DNA (Delaware-Native-Ale) yeast. You won’t want to wait until October to try it, but oh it will be worth the wait!

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.

Curiously odd but interesting beer. Cloudy; thinnish head. Very bready and earthy. Chewy texture with some alcohol burn in the aftertaste. Hot fusel nips. Slightly cloying. Pleasant fruitiness in the background. Mild bitterness.

alexanderj (3441) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Can; poured an orange-amber color with a big frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, fruit, a touch of sourness, alcohol and herbs. Flavor was more muted than I expected, which was good because I don’t think I love the flavor profile. Some tartness, too aggressive yeast and fruit notes, with a rather short finish.

probstblueribbon (3401) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2013
12 oz can via Lubiere, cool, tulip. Clear deep golden with a fair off-white head. Sorta vaguely fruity with boiled cereals, faintly citrusy with light tropical notes, a bit dusty, a touch resinous, pleasant if a bit unfocused. Medium+ body with moderate, fine effervescence. Fairly fruity, alcoholic, reminds me of a Belgian ale, sorta bready and yeasty with a touch of spiciness, a touch tropical and citrusy, not bad; dry with some bitterness and a boozy, vaguely fruity finish. Lower abv would have been nicer. The beer isn’t bad, it just is somewhat unfocused.

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.

Shared by the Rhino! The beer is very light orange and completely transparent with a half inch of white head. The aroma offers tropical fruit, alcohol, sweet malt, oddness. Weird flavor as well. Like a cloying mixed drink. Light spice. Lots of boozy sweetness. Not my thing.

shoulderbroken (3061) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 3, 2013
Can at Antenna America. Orange gold colour, creamy gold head. Aroma is tropical fruit, bit citrus, bready malty. Bit weird. Taste is interestingly fruity, get the bread. Pretty nice but maybe one was enough.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 10, 2012
In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a blonde colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, pineapple and alcohol with a lovely fruity character. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely.

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Beautiful golden tangerine pour with a tightly packed ivory head that left incredible webbing inside the glass. Nose is subtle, subdued with yeast, biscuit, tart fruit, and some floral notes. Flavor is semi sweet with a unique sour finish. Honey, freshly baked bread, tropical fruit, and alcohol. This surprised me with the warming qualities. Different. Enjoyable. Give it a go.

maekchu (2905) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 11, 2013
Can from Asahiya. Thick pear juice, tropical fruits, hops, and rust in the nose. Golden straw color, fine white head, some lace. Malty, and somewhat harsh initial / sort of balances out with hops in mid / light bitter finish emerges from solid trop fruit. Medium body. Another push the limits beer? Tastes like a really well-made malt liquor. I have no idea what toasted papaya seeds should add to the mix.
