look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: poured into a pint glass to a slightly hazed light gold with a small dense white head that fades to a small pool and collar around the glass
S: smells sweet and fruity with a hint of bitterness and base malt
T: tastes of a sweet fruitiness which I'm guessing is the breadfruit, a slight toastyness, a bit of caramel sweetness and more fruitiness, and slight bitterness. swallow is more tropical fruitiness, a slight toastyness and a slight earthy bitterness that lingers on the finish
M: heavy side of medium with soft and slightly prickly carbonation slightly drying finish
O: Interesting beer. good flavors and decent complexity but the mouthfeel is a bit too heavy in my opinion. It's pretty pricey as well. I got a single can instead of paying 16 for a six pack and I'm glad I did. Worth a try but not worth getting in bulk.
