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!

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Can:   Amberish, pale haze, thin off-white head, sparce lacing.   Fruity nose, sweet, somewhat of a sweet melon nose.   Very dull, non-descript otherwise.   Similar tongue.   Has a shrubby aspect to it, but not in the berry sense, mountain berry, but in the SHRUB sense.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Pale breadiness, melon like sweetness, and very shrubby like earthiness on the finish.   This fits the definition of an odd one, 100%.   Not amused.

[Canned 12/31/12] Hazy orange color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, toast, tropical fruits, some oxidation. Taste of citrus, toast, orange, tropical fruits, and a semi-sweet finish. Oxidation was surprising given the age.

obguthr (6432) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2013
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.

Suttree (6415) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Murky yellow, lively carbonation. Not much head. Smells fruity, like mango and other tropical fruits. I suppose that’s Breadfruit? Taste is fruity and lightly sour. Pretty refreshing. I liked it..

jgb9348 (6323) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Hazy ornage and golden coloured body with a bit of a light copper glow, all with a half centimetre tall ugly off-white head. Aroma of light fruit, a touch of malt and just about nothing else, perhaps some honey. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong malt with a bit of yeast and a increasing bitter flavour that just persists and gets worse. Aftertaste shows a very bland flavour with some bitterness, a good dose of body (not sure where it comes from), a touch of yeast and perhaps the slightest bit of fruit. Overall, a pretty bad offering, perhaps one of the worst from Maui (but not DFH - there are way worse ones) yet. This isn’t really ready for public consumption, unless you want to alienate folks who love either/both breweries. I wish I didn’t take up room in my suitcase across the whole of the pacific and america for this. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Liquor Collection in Honolulu, Maui, Hawaii for US$3.50 on 10-December-2012 sampled at home in Washington (on the other end of this great land) on 20-September-2013.

riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Grainy, fruity nose. Papaya or peach or something, herbal, a little pepper. Strange. Pours golden amber, frothy white head. Flavors of grain, peppery earthy notes, peach, papaya, and more grain. Easy to drink for an imperial golden ale. Interesting to drink.

3.2
TheBeerGod (6233) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Can. Soft amber with a tall, foamy tan head. Aroma is soft fruit notes, toasted malt, light grains and hints of caramel. Taste is sweet malt, toasted grains, soft fruit notes, soft booze and mild spiciness. Body is medium but soft with a moderate bubbly carbonation, light warmth and moderate stickiness. Ends with more spiciness, booze, sweet malt, caramel, fruit notes, toasted grains and light tartness.

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.

JK (6200) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2012
GABF, 2012. This one sounds more interesting that it is. I was expecting exotic flavors that I might not recognize, but what is there is sweetness with crackers. Gold color. Clean finish.
