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

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Blend 4, bottled 5/8/12. Pours a hazy red-amber with a thick, light tan head. Aroma of upfront sour cherry, along with a more biting sour barrel funk. Flavor is at first tart citrus, a little mellow/not aggressively sour. Very little sweetness. Tart cherries, sour, a bit of oak, earthy and dry. Comes together very nicely, making a highly drinkable sour ale.

Rating #1800. 750ml brown bottle. Blend 1, bottled 04-26-2012. Glowing orangey pour with reddish hints. Hazy. Small off white head, creamy and tight bubbled. Long lasting large patchy lace patterns in the glass. Cherry nose with citrus, and decent sourness. Taste has tart cherries, sharp lemon, tropical fruits and wild yeast notes. Finish is quite dry with lots of wood and some lingering funk. Light to medium bodied, lots of carbonation. The intensity of the sourness isn’t extreme and works well with the cherries and fruit notes. Great drinkability, don’t think I’ve gone through a sour 750 as easily as I did with this one.

Thanks to the kind soul that shared this at the Tampa Crew Tasting. Pours a hazy brown with copper highlights and an off-white head. Nose is oak, tart fruit, tropical fruit, barnyard, and vinegar with small hints of that JP yeast. Flavor is equally intense- oak, tart fruit, tropical fruit, vinegar, and yeast. Medium in body for a sour and a nice beer overall.

reebtogi (4437) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 20, 2012
750ml capped bottle pours a hazy amber color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some decent lacing rings on the glass. Aroma is cherries with some hints of wood and grains. Taste is sour cherries with some light malty sweetness and an earthy dry finish with more cherry in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with loads of carbonation leaving a bubbly sensation on the tongue. There are also notes of lemon coming through as well. Tasty and recommended.
