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!

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL can into a Blue Moon glass. Served cold. Aroma: Sour fruit. I’ve never had a breadfruit before, so I can’t say if this smells like one or not. It does smell good though. Appearance: Hazy burnt yellow. Foamy white head that lingers a little bit. Taste: Tart fruit. Sourish yeast. Pears! Pretty tart beer, if you’re into that. Palate: Medium body, longish finish. The 8.2% is hidden quite well, so watch out. Overall: Made me really want to go to Hawaii and try a breadfruit!!

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.

brenn79 (1498) - Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2012
12 oz. can- Pours semi hazy with a one finger head that reduces to a ring. Aroma is hops, piney hops, fruity, but hard to pinpoint. The taste is very tasty, not sure what breadfruit is, but it seems to taste awesome, creamy, fruity, hoppy, and tasty, it does start to become a bit syrupy! Body is a bit thin, but I don’t mind that personally, beers like this I prefer on the thinner side, carbonation is moderately high. Overall I was somewhat impressed, I couldn’t drink this all night, but it is refreshing for a change of pace, I do wish the taste would have lived up to the hoppy aroma!

Strykzone (4901) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2013
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.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - 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.

Mora2000 (5650) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2013
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma has some yeast and fruit notes, as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor is similar. There is a nice biscuit and toasted malt character, as well as some nice citrus fruit. There is a bit of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

poisoneddwarf (1701) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JAN 5, 2013
12 oz can. Pours hazy orange with a medium off-white collapsing head. Aroma is fruity--not sure what breadfruit smells like--maybe a little worty. Taste is sweet and fruity; a little tart; finishes dry. Kind of boozy. A little underwhelming, but not bad.

benpickens (403) - Camarillo, California, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Clear gold with a foamy white head that holds well; stone fruits on the nose; fruity palate with a oily and moderateky bitter finish reminescent of grapefruit.

dark golden color. Tropical fruit, hoppy and estry nose. Thick, almost syrupy mouth, full body, lots of tropical fruit. Rounded. Pleasant Belgian strong golden ale.

jonno (2287) - JAPAN - APR 8, 2013
Drinks at about 6%. Fruity, tropical fruity - passionfruit, guava, pineapple and bread dough - indeed liquid breadfruit. A bit too sweet and cloying, but otherwise a nice aside.
