COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

12 Fl. Oz. Can. Pours clear amber nice white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is quite fruity, some malts and yeast, kind of earthy. Taste is also quite sweet and fruity some yeast there too and grain. Overall a good beer very balanced the 8.2 ABV is very well hidden making it a very drinkable brew. Nice...

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 22, 2014
THOUGHTS: An odd but likeable beer. At first sip it just sort of tasted like beer. Maybe a blonde, maybe an imperial pils or golden ale, maybe. And then the flavors start to develop and the best way I can describe they flavor is some odd tropical jelly spread on white toast. There were other little things but they all came together to make jelly on toast. It grew on me each time I had one. TECHNICAL: Drank 5/10/2013. Can. Poured a hazy, dark, golden yellow with an average, off-white head that mostly diminished but left good lacing. The aroma had moderate white bread, nutty and toasted malts, and golden cake; light to moderate earthy yeast; apple; pear; pineapple; tropical fruit and toasted nuts. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and moderately acidic; while the finish was lightly acidic and moderately sweet and bitter. There was pineapple, other tropical fruit in a jelly, bread, toasted bread, nutty malts, toasted sunflower seeds, apple, and apple skin. The medium body was a little syrupy and somewhat oily and then a little dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

"Collaboration with Dogfish Head. Tasted and smells more like the typical yeast and spiciness of a dogfish brew. Light bread, Papaya like fruitiness. Good, but not a standout."

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 I’m not a fruit beer fan, really.

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

Squizzle (157) - Idaho, USA - MAR 20, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2014 Intriguing name but yucky beer. Expected more from Dogfish Head but its the usual disappointment from Maui Brewing. Thought it would be better and wish it was.

Wittales (649) - 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 (1503) - 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 can’t 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 :)

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.
