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 Heads DNA (Delaware-Native-Ale) yeast. You wont want to wait until October to try it, but oh it will be worth the wait!

Golden in color with a slight haze. Lightly sweet aroma with alcohol hints and light maltiness. Moderate fruit sweetness, like a tirple and a bit of earthy character in the finish.

Sampled on 3/18/2013. This fruit beer pours a very hazy pineapple orange gold color from a 12oz can. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, earthy and floral. A medium bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, tropical and bready. The hops are floral and citrusy. Good carbonation. Interesting combination of flavors, some fruity, some earthy and a hint of tartness. Certainly not your typical fruit beer, of course they arent using the typical fruits either Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart.

For the price i paid for this four pack, over $15, i was very disappointed. The texture was watery which is not always bad but with the flavor of this beer it was. The smell on the other hand was nice, like a fruit salad. The taste was similar to papya, which i hate haha. Again way overpriced.

Appearance: Peach-gold with a frothy white head. Aroma: Malt, corn, alcohol - very mild. Flavor: Much like the aroma. Has more of a grain adjunct character and less of a fruit character. Bread fruit indeed. Other: Kind of an odd viscosity as if someone way over did the cara pils malt.

streve (105) - Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2013
12oz can. Pour is a clear copper with no head. Aroma is tropical pineapple juice with a bread note. I get a little bit of yeast as well. Mouth has a noticeable hop bitterness. Slightly sweet and fruity. Medium body. For being 8.2%, the alcohol is hidden fairly well. Not too shabby.

Pours a copper orange color with a finger of stocky tight bubbled foam. On teh nose its got some sweet tropical fruit punch, sourdough bread and a little creamsicle. On the palate its a bit heavier on the caramel malt than I expected and has a big hop bitterness that really draws out and get a touch of phenol in the lingering finish. But the juicy fruit punch add to the flavor complexity and balances the bitterness a bit. Thanks adnielsen !

Golden amber color with white head. No lacing, very "clean" looking brew. Aroma slightly bready but seems sanitized. Taste is neutral to me not bad drinking however. Clean finish. I feel the aroma could be improved.

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.

jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Location/Date:Can on February 20th, 2013.

Appearance: Pours a clear orange.
Aroma: Aroma of papaya, breadfruit.
Taste: Breadfruit, faint toasted papaya, not super sweet. Interesting.
Palate:Medium light, quick aftertaste.

Summary: Apparently its DFH collaboration night for me, as I had the Italy made My Antonia earlier. This is an interesting fruit beer, unlike any Ive ever had. Kind of nice, as its not super sweet.

ACHops (1548) - 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 havent 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.
