COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sour, barrel-aged version of the beer by the same name. Brewed in collaboration with Maui brewing.

Yes, Michigan and Hawaii are connected. It should be obvious to you now, as you hold this beer, and read this label. John and I designed this beer with two noble fruits from two noble states, Michigan & Hawaii. Cherries and liliko’i. Starting to see the connection? I feel it. So does John. 4391 miles may separate our breweries, but no our thirst for the exquisite. Hipa! -Ron

Working with Ron is something I’ve always want to do since I had my first Jolly Pumpkin beer. Years later, it’s a reality. Being involved on this project was an honor and a privilege. Mahalo to my MBC crew and to you, fans of craft beer! -John

I wanted to like this more but it tasted to me very watered down. Aroma was nice tropical fruits with passion fruit, cherry, guava, and some wheat. Taste however was like watered down fruit punch. No complexity or tartness that I expect out of JP. A real dissapointment here.

MrBunn (2560) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2012
750 ml bottle. Body is a murky brown with a decently sized sudsy head. Aromas are weak, but fully Jolly Pumpkin. Funk and sour with a little spice. Flavor is a little washed out, but decent. A punch of lemon peel sour with some barnyard funkiness and a little bit of weak fruit that is almost cherry like. This beer is a little thin, but very yummy!

As most Jolly Pumpkins I’ve tasted, extreme brews, nicely done. Aroma of spices, almonds, cherries and tropical fruits.

Bottle shared by my good bud Randy, thanks brotha! Didn’t know anything about this sour but I was intrigued because the art work is just too damn cool! Good sour tartness. Well balanced between the fruit flavors and sour funk. Hopefully I’ll get to try this one again.

20/10/12 Bouteille 650ml de half time: Belle couleur rose foncée, avec bonne carbonisation et mousse abondante et percistante. On trouve les arômes traditionnels de Jolly pumkin, donc odeur amer et boisé, mais avec de belles notes de fruits. Bien balancée entre sucrée, fruitée et amer en bouche, avec une amertume et une saveur aigrelette en finale. Corps plutôt léger avec une mince et une finale légèrement astringente et amer. Asser facile à boire.

750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Nice blood orange colored pour, with a medium carbonation that dies down fairly quickly. Really intriguing nose of bright kiwi and blood orange, with mild oak and some yeast. Prickly mouthfeel, only moderately acetic, and this really lets the big, buoyant tropical fruit flavors come through well. Certainly it’s satisfyingly sour but this is a bright and tart innovation, consistent with JP but a modest new direction too. Really enjoyed it.
