It is turning into a CANQuest (TM) day at Chez Woody with one CAN of beer after another surfacing for CANsumption. I was relieved to find this in the cooler at Max's Taproom in BAL during a recent visit as I knew that it was limited and a pending trade seemed to have stalled.

From the CAN: "Ale brewed with breadfruit and papaya seeds"; "National Tropical Botanical Garden [-] proceeds to benefit Breadfruit Institute"; "Millions of Delaware natives lusting tropic climes [CAN]not be wrong. We isolated a unique yeast strain on a peach farm near Dogfish Head Brewery. We mapped its DNA, brewed with it, and instantly fell in love with the fruity aromatics the yeast threw down. It immediately reminded me of Hawaii and Hawaii immediately reminds me of my pal Garrett at Maui Brewing Co. A collaborative brew seemed like a fun way to use this tropical yeast. - Sam"; "Breadfruit has been a staple crop for over 3000 years. It's very versatile and EXTREMELY tasty. My buddy Sam and I thought it'd be fun to brew with. Why not push the limits of beer a bit further? After all, beer has been called 'Liquid Bread' for centuries, right? So Liquid Breadfruit's time has come. - Garrett"; "I'm down with the idea of adding Hawaii's native breadfruit into the mix. To amplify the tropic thunderstorm that's brewing in this recipe let's hop this puppy with Calypso hops which throw a lot of pear and apple notes adding bitterness and aroma - Sam"; "Sounds great, let's use some toasted papaya seeds, it's a great spice to balance the breadfruit and compliment the fruitiness of Calypso hops and tropical notes lent by the philandering Delawarians. It was no small task to harvest all these seeds and fruit by hand ... but it sure beats chewing purple corn for weeks on end ... [undersigned] Garrett W. Marrero"; "It certainly does, Garrett. Let's do this! [undersigned] Samuel L. Calagione III"; Maui's truly local beer!"

The Crack revealed yet another brimful CAN and I was anxious to see what an inverted Glug might produce. Two fingers of dense, rocky eggshell-white head was part of the answer. The other part was a very perry-like scent that may cause people to wonder what I am doing in my kitchen today. Two very fruity estrous beers in a row have rendered the place smelling like an orchard of some sort. I do not personally know the smell of breadfruit, but upon leaning in, I definitely got papaya, a scent that always reminds me of female, if you get my drift. Papayas and mangoes ... Mmmm. Basically, this imparted a very tropical fruit scent with an inherent muskiness. Color was a deep, golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity. Mouthfeel was soft, slightly full, with an unfamiliar fruitiness on the tongue. If it was the breadfruit or the Calypso hops, I CANnot tell you, but I CAN say that it was very mellow and quite tasty. The interplay of the fruit and the hops gave it a semi-dry finish with a hoppy bite on the swallow. I have got to read the new book on hops that was just released! Color me curious ...

I was very surprised to see Maui Brewing in Vancouver and to see the Liquid Breadfruit was even more amazing as it was a one off collab. Being that it is over 8% I pulled the trigger as age should not adversely effect the flavours.

The beer is a nice dark gold colour and the nose is hoppy yet fruity. The age seems to have put the breadfruit notes in the backseat but the beer has melded into a hoppy ale with tropical fruit notes on the palate much like many IPAs. The ABV is there but not too noticeable. The hops are still fresh tasting which is a happy thing considering the age. All around a great beer.

Had this on tap at Real. Excellent. Nice golden color. Smelled like overripe fruit, but in a good way. Pleasant breadfruit finish. Well balanced hops, easy drinking for a decent/high abv.
Had it in the can also... Nowhere near as good. Tasted like your average IPA.

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.

From can to nonic pint glass

A: Apricot in color, dank and cloudy, the beer forms a solid 2-inch head that cascades down the glass.

S: Sweet malts and unripe, astringent fruit hits the nose first. Admittedly I hadn't heard of breadfruit until I'd picked this up, but there's definitely a semi-sweet tropical tone I'd assume comes from its addition. Sweet bouquet with pronounced aromas.

T: The tropical note hits first. Surprisingly it's not sweet, sort of a bitter tropical bend if there's such a thing. The brew's not all that hoppy, but the bitter aspects of the fruit (is it a fruit? I'll Google later) nicely cut through the sweet malt-backbone. There are some subtle musty and earthy notes that play at the edge of the profile. A touch of hop astrigency dries the palate toward the end, as it finishes short and balanced.

M: Medium-bodied given the ABV. Refreshing experience overall

Surprised how much I like this. Maui is getting good at taking the best of craft brewing and bending them to an 'island experience'. I could definitely see myself on a beach knocking this back. Like those teasing Corona commercial but with good brew.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz can that’s been hidden in my fridge for several months. According to the stamp on the bottom of the can, this was canned October 5, 2012.

Poured a hazy gold color, with a big, creamy looking white head. Said head retreated after a few minutes, leaving sheets of lace on the sides of an Eastern Washington University pint glass (Go Eag’s).

Initially, a mild, tropical fruit scent was all that the inquiring nostrils could detect. As things warmed up, there came to be some separate citrusy hop notes as well, along with more pear-like fruity scents, some vanilla and something not unlike the aroma of a white wine.

Very different tasting than I was expecting. Not nearly as fruity as I was expecting, with the vanilla-like flavor stepping up significantly. It reminds me a bit of an oak-aged white wine. That’s not to say the tropical fruit flavor is gone – it’s there, quite a lot actually – but it’s in the background, essentially acting as an outer garment keeping things wrapped together. The finish is surprisingly hot, given the rest of the taste, but it does have a relatively high alcohol percentage.

Medium bodied, with a slightly coating mouthfeel.

I wasn’t sure I would like this beer as a little bit of fruit flavor in beers generally goes a long way with me, but due to it’s restrained fruitiness and generally off-the-wall nature, I rather liked it/ I’m not sure I would want to drink numerous cans’ worth in a single sitting, but I think I made a good call purchasing this, and would not be afraid to do so again should the opportunity present itself.

This pours a honey amber color with tightly laced foam. I can't place the aroma--it's vaguely tropical. But doesn't come across in a conceptual way. If that makes any sense.

The flavor has a pleasing bitterness that's sharp and pointed with a drying finish. I pick up more distinct tropical notes—along with a green banana (specifically platano more than the more common bananas) especially on the finish. This comes together very well. It’s an interesting and enjoyable brew.

12oz can

A - Golden, hazy, thick looking. Lots of head formation, off white in color. Looks quite unfiltered.

S - Strong yeast flavors, bread, with hints of spiciness. Citrus and whatever I guess breadfruit is adds something here.

T - Starts off lightly malty, but then it comes through with some hefty spiciness. Some hopping comes in in the middle, adds a little bitterness and some american hops citrus. A strong bready flavor comes in the finish, really adding a earthy tone to the flavors.

M - Moderate body, moderate to strong carbonation. A little bit bitey. No alcohol warmth detected. The body is consistent with other beers from Maui (big swell forexample), where it has some sort of innate creaminess.

O/D - An interesting beer I would put in the same neighborhood as a saison. Not quite as light and funky however. ABV is up there but you wouldn't know it. A bit filling. I like this one mainly because it reminds of me Belgians rather than a more traditional american style.

A: Hazy orange golden in color. Poured with a thick white head that reduced to a thin sticky ring. Well carbonated to maintain the thin foam ring. Almost a green tinge in the sunlight. A couple of weird sediment pieces at the bottom.

S: Sweet and with passion fruit and wheat. Agave nectar. Like a tropical fruit drink mixed with a wheat beer.

T: Light refreshing and smooth up front. It finishes with a sweet and sour with sweetened lime and grapefruit. Very unique and refreshing.

M: Light and crisp. The slight sour taste finishes the beer very clean with no noticeable aftertaste. The high alcohol is barely even detected.

O: I'm quite impressed. A fascinating mix of sour sweet and wheat. Makes this beer a one of a kind. I've been really into sour beer lately, and this was a nice extension. It's not overly sweet like other fruit beers. If you can get over your fruit beer snobbery, I recommend this beer.

12 oz can served chilled into a goblet.

Liquid Breadfruit is a hazy coppery orange color with thin white head. It leaves a little lace as it settles.

Aroma is fruity and slightly funky like peach saison. I would say tropical fruit but that seems rather obvious.

Flavor is unexpectedly bitter after that nice sweet aroma. I don't know if the fruit lends the bitterness or if its all from the hops but it comes as a surprise. The breadfruit and papaya bring the light fruity flavors but they seem to compete with the bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light in body and nicely carbonated. It's a fairly balanced beer but leans towards the bitter.

Overall a solid beer but I would have liked a sweeter take on this idea.

A plain tasting, fairly good beer...hardly worth the hoopla over exotic ingredients. Pours a nice clear dark gold /copper color with a big bubbly white head and good lacing. Head retention is better than average...A good looking beer.

Smell and taste are fairly average. Tastes like a well brewed lager. No corn and rice staleness....just a malty, light feeling beer with a little hoppiness in the finish. The kind of stuff Budweiser should be making.

Mouthfeel is crisp and rich enough to be a good lager....The 8.2% abv is a BIG surprise. This beer hides the alcohol well. If I had a six pack of this on a hot day, I would probably pound a few before reality sunk in.

If you are looking for something unusual, this is not it. All the same, it is a good summertime thirst quencher at a higher than normal octane level.

Just got it 11/17/12 on Kauai.

A - Hazy, orange/amber. Poured 2 finger head...quickly dissapated.

S - Citrus on the nose, lemon, some fleshy notes (though I've lived out here for 5+ years I've never actually had breadfruit to eat). Honey.

T/M - Nice and tart. Actually feel the subtle notes of the 'fruit' coming through. Definitely some body to the beer. Can taste some green/garden notes as the beer warms.. Trying to reach for words but they're escaping...unique.

O - This is a very well balanced beer, especially considering the uniqueness of the ingredients. Expensive but worth the try. 8.2% is very well hidden.

Couldn't resist this unique offering. Tasted 12 June 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours a medium golden color, a little hazy but mostly clear. One finger of off-white head.

Smell is surprisingly clean. There's a bit of fruit in there, but mostly it feels like clean, lightly fruity malts. Fine, but neither interesting nor surprising.

Taste makes up for what's lacking in the smell, with a burst of unique, slightly bitter fruit, complemented by an apparent hop bitterness that I have a hard time distinguishing from the fruit. It tastes like one of those weird tropical fruits that you're not sure if you want to keep eating or spit out, but on balance it's good. Never had breadfruit, but the papaya is clearly present, and it sure hit the mark for recalling exotic fruit flavors. Bitter enough that, without the fruity flavors, it would drink like an IPA.

Feel is fine. Medium-bodied, enough carbonation. Not notable.

An interesting beer, though not one I'm sure I'd drink again, as the novelty of the taste is the main thing commending it. Bitter and fruity in a pleasing way.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a murky gold from the striking electric green can. Forms a very small half inch head that is gone in seconds. Slight bits of lacing fall off the glass on each sip.

Bready with a touch of honey, sourdough comes to mind as there is a mild acidity associated with the fruity esters of the yeast. Fruit aromas hit high on the glass a mild peach, papaya and persimmon aroma comes through. A bit earthy and musty, likely from the toasted papaya seeds and the breadfruit.

Bready (of course) with a drop of honey and lightly toasted malts. Features a vibrant fruit and spice range that includes lemon lime, black tea and ginger ale. Finishes with an earthy bitterness like oolong tea and a flash of acidity.

Crisp carbonation works well with the tart fruitiness that the yeast imparts. Ideal body and the high alcohol is covered well.

Leave it to Dogfish to add in ingredients that are so unique they're impossible to discern individually. My experience with toasted papaya seeds is limited to salad dressing but at least I've had breadfruit before, more of a vegetable than a fruit, mild, earthy flavor much like a potato or taro with a bit more acidity, matches well with malt in beer. Positive outlook on this beer, solid use of ingredients and the yeast really has something going for it. Not really "tropical" but a damn good staple for the fridge.

A- A very nice looking deep gold body with a frothy, off-white head. Good transparency and good head retention.

S- Tropical fruits, honey, pomegranate, bready yeast, white grapes. Has some similarities in the nose to a white wine.

T- The taste is nothing like the nose. I was expecting tropical fruits, and some do come through, but the flavor is huge on the yeast. I guess this is where the "bread" part comes into play. Huge bready yeast flavors take everything over and offer just a hint of the tropical fruit flavors that come through in the nose. The finish is slightly hot too, with some noticeable, almost medicinal alcohol.

M- With it being very yeasty, it is somewhat heavier than it looks. Overall, pretty drinkable with a slight alcohol burn.

O- Looks great, smells great, there are good things here, but the overpowering yeast and somewhat boozy body leaves me looking for more. Not sure if this would be a good one to age, but slightly less yeast and alcohol would benefit this one.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a cloudy orange amber with a finger of off white head with good retention and slippery lacing. Aroma of bready and caramel malt, unidentifiable fruit and a hint of vegetables. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, earthy fruit (the breadfruit?), a hint of stone fruits, finish has an odd astringent bitterness that lingers. Nice lightly creamy medium body. The initial flavors are pleasant and unusual, similar to a sweet Belgian golden but without Belgian yeast or spicing. The initial flavor drops off quickly, leaving the finish out of balance, overwhelming the other lingering flavors, which is unfortunate, because this was otherwise quite unusual and intriguing.

Pours with a nice creamy head, thick but briefly so. Body is apricot golden, slightly hazy.
Smells ok, but very light. Tropical, citrus, cidery, some alcohol.
Tastes sweet and bready, with a dry acidic finish. There is an earth-like, spicy quality I do enjoy here.
Overall, not bad for what i was expecting. Tangy, juicy then dry with a crisp lingering feeling. Ive never heard of breadfruit until i grabbed this single can off the shelf at Total Wine. It does taste "bready" and also "fruity", but with the fruit it's like tasting earthy fermented orchard-picked fruit. As i pick out this breadfruit, it's unlike anything I've tasted, quite different, but it is used well and stands out in this brew. Not my go-to style, but this is drinkable considering not only the 8+ % abv., but also considering the atypical ingredients. Carbonation is mild.

dogfish collaboration. clever idea, well executed, just strange ingredients. the pour is cloudy and pale yellow with a lovely white lacey head a few fingers high. very unassuming. the nose is tropical for sure, more like passion fruits from what i can gather, and plenty of wheat malt. yeast seems weird, juicy and fruity again. the taste is like no other beer ever. so much going on over a wheat malt base. passion fruit seems familiar, but it isnt that, its almost like holiday fruitcakey, strong alcohol and sweetness. the toasted seeds are hard to pick out, not sure what they taste like on their own, so its hard to tell. tart finish, hard to place the yeast, its definitely unique. peach flavors in the finish. good carbonation, sudsy feel, and enough carbonation, but there is a slightly soapy slickness in the finish that isnt quite right. i applaud this effort, and always like what maui is up to. cool choice of ingredients, worth a try if you feel adventurous.

A: Pours a cloudy dark orange color. 2 finger, white, fizzy head that disappears pretty quickly but leaves a nice thin ring around the top. Light lacing, but falls right off the glass.

S: Some yeast esters. Definitely some sweet maltiness. Also sweet sugars. I'm not getting a whole lot here.

T: Packs a better punch than the smell would lead you to believe. Here I actually get a little of the breadfruit and definitely taste papaya. A little malt sweetness and virtually no bitterness. Better than I anticipated.

M: Light to medium body, good carbonation level. A little creamier than I thought it would be from the looks of things.

Pours a lovely hazy amber in the Stella glass. Lots of white foam to start, and very carbonated in the mouth. A very funky note in the smell.

Like a fruity champagne. Breadfruit is virtually flavorless, so it's hard to account for the pineapple and pear flavors. Brewed with Calypso hops, according to the label, which are not very bitter or it's a low dosage.Some tartness is quite welcome after all the fruit. The sudsy mouthfeel is quite pleasant. The aftertaste gets more bitter, and more dry, so maybe their alleged orchard yeast is a stray Belgian. It's more like a Saison.

From the 12 oz can bought at Bine and Vine in San Diego. I had an infected can previously, from Total Wine in Tuscon.

Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy golden orange color with a small white head, rather foamy that reduces to a nice cap on top with some pretty nice lacing all around the glass.

S: Some light tropical fruit on the aroma, mostly passion fruit with a bit of lemon/lime citrus and some bready malt.

T: Not as fruity as the aroma, definitely a bit breadier. There is again a bit of passion fruit/papaya, but the citrus isn't really there. A heavy dose of fresh bread comes through in the middle.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty clean.

O: Pretty good beer, a little fruitier on the flavor profile would have done it for me.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Small particles of sediment are seen floating around in the glass after the pour. Smell is of malt, alcohol, and earthy tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with an alcohol kick and a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is quite strong and earthy for a fruit beer.

S: Slight cardboard coming on. Then it's tropical fruits: papaya, mango, some of that pear they describe. Sweetness.

T: Still a touch of hop presence up front, 4 months since canning. Then you get those fruity yeasty esters. Papaya is a strong player here. Juiciness is there too. I guess the slight spice, bready flavor towards back of the palate that cuts in is the toasted seeds. Finish is dry. Some lingering esters.
