Maui Brewing/Dogfish Head 'Liquid Breadfruit' @ 8.2% , served from a 6pack of 355 ml cans purchased for $15.50

A-pour is a pale gold from the can to a slight hazy gold in the glass with a medium size white head leaving a spotty lace along the pint

S-papaya stands out , other tropical fruit

T-sweet boozey start , real bitter swallow

MF-low mild carbonation , full bodied , slight metallic/acid mouthfeel , too much booze

Ov-well I've got a 4pack that can be used in my first trade someday , not a pleasant beer

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.

12oz can from "Lifesource" in Salem. $2.49 Pours a hazy orange/gold small persistent creamy white head. Not much aroma to speak off but mainly malty,toffee with some pitted fruit like in the back. Taste is very much more fruity..mellow fruitiness balanced by nice caramel type malt..spicy/bitter in the end. Actually nice. Mouth feel is good and thick but also easily drinkable not much sigh of the high alc. Overall a nice enough beer.

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.

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.
