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!

Very clean light honey fruit smell. Great hazy orange color. Its a thick full mouth feel. The yeast does a great job of keeping the sweetness in check. Pleasantly aware of the fruit backbone to this beer. Refreshing with a tart aftertaste.

I have to disagree with many of the comments I’ve read before trying this. The name of this beer is pretty spot on with the tasting experience. If one were to agree with that, like I do, then to rate it poorly would be pretty unfair. I feel like this beer does justice to a balance between bread and fruit - especially with an 8. something alcohol content. Tropical fruit on the nose, a blended bread and fruit taste, and slightly dry bread finish with a hint of fruit tartness. Overall, enjoyable and a nice journey into something different.

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Maui Brewpub. Golden amber color with nice foamy head. Taste is actually light. Sweet taste with mild hop flavor. This beer is so easy to drink, tastes more like 3% rather than 8.2%. I love this beer, maybe it’s the atmosphere but this beer kills.

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of rothy slightly off-white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit and orange hops, caramel and bready malts, and some tropical fruits. T - Starts off with some grapefruit, orange, and citrus hops with some sweet caramel malts and some tropical fruits. Though the middle some bready flavors come through with tart fruits. The finish is a mix of citrus hops, caramel malts, bready flavors, and tropical fruits. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and fruity finish. D - Very drinkable. Good different flavors that come together in a well balanced beer.

A truly..weird beer that is really good. You may think this is going to be sweet, almost barley-wine esque but it really is a style unto itself. Not sticky sweet but remarkably well balanced, fruity but dry. The high alcohol content of this brew makes 3 cans a decent evenings worth of drinking, or a nice day at the beach. Maui makes some of my favorite beers, they know what they are doing.

Some tartness to the aroma. This is a strange beer. It’s frutiy but hard to identify any papaya at all. I’ve never had breadfruit so maybe that’s what I’m getting. There’s some hops at time but also a fair amount of tartness. Strange but good. Really hard to rate, even after the whole 12 ounces.

Gerbeer (1691) - 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.

Can from World beers. Hazy orange-gold pour with a brief, short white head leaving little lace. Nose is fruity with citrus hops and a pilsener-like yeast and malt aroma. Medium body with light carbonation. Peaches, oranges, Hawai’ian sweet bread, pears and citrus hops. Finish is medium, pleasantly sweet and lightly bitter. I tend to like specialty grain ales as a nice change of pace, but perhaps not everyday beers. This one fits that pattern. Well worth a try.
