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!

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.

Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2013
Can from Wine Warehouse Charlottesville. Pours a clear golden amber color with fine and sparse floating particles. Medium sized creamy tan head. Breadfruit is indeed an apt name. Aroma of bready,nutty notes with tropical and mild sugared fruits. Faint hoppy finish. The taste is earth notes, caramel, bread, stone fruits and a nearly salty note. Medium bodied. I quite like this.

12oz can poured into my Dogfish Head signature glass. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of overripe cantaloupe, mango and papaya, and Belgian yeast. Tastes of sour fruit, nuttiness I’m assuming from the papaya seeds, and this wierd tropical sour flavor that I’m figuring is the breadfruit. It also finishes slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation and a dry finish. Overall this was a really good but odd tasting. Nice to see a Maui Brewing and Dogfish Head do a collaboration. Very Hawaiian influenced but I can taste the dogfish head yeast for sure. Too bad this is a one time thing. Should have forked out the money for a 6 pack while I still could oh well.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2012 Nice! Crazy tropic fruit smell - reminiscent of an odd gum as a child. Big flavors of tropical fruit, grain and nice mouthtfeel from the wheat. Was a tad astringent on the back end - but overall I enjoyed it’s slightly tart drink... also, is this 8.2%? even more surprising

This one is growing on me. Had it on draft a few places and now in a can at home. Fruity nose, never had breadfruit before, not sure if you can taste it. Surprised to see it at 8.2 abv.

bhensonb (14079) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Can from Bine & Vine. Pours kind of golden copper with a transient white head. Aroma is a bit earthy. Then a hint of melon? Full bodied. Flavor is earthy and a little nutty/roasty. Not sure I’m getting fruit, but there’s something that could well be. I have no idea what breadfruit tastes like. Finishes fairly dry and sort of earthy bitter. It’s very nice when I quit worrying about what it is.

junon (430) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - FEB 15, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Shocked to find that its 8.2%abv. I would have guessed 6 or 7 most. Super easy drinker. Smooth. Balanced on the palate with an initial sharpness and soft finish. Where this offering fails big time is on the nose. Way too tight. Not much to speak of.

ACHops (1360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2013
12 oz can into a shaker pint. Pours murky golden orange with a thin creamy head that lasts well. Aroma is mildly sweet citrus and toffee malt. Taste is nutty slightly sweet caramel malt with juicy grapefruit notes. Finishes quite bitter. I haven’t had breadfruit before, so that exact flavor is a bit of a mystery. I do get the toasted papaya seeds (the toasted part anyway...) and the Dogfish yeast flavor is familiar. Very unique. Refreshing and somewhat light given the abv here.

12oz can: pours a transparent deep golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a unique floral fruity esters and a touch of clove. Starts with good fullness and light effervescence and sweet bready malt with some honey and floral spice before a drier bittersweet toasty finish. Well-balanced and enjoyable.

shoulderbroken (3755) - 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.
