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

Ambrée et voilée où sa mousse se résorbe en un mince voile. Des arômes très intéressants de fruits tropicaux avec leurs acidités propres. En bouche, c’est acidulé d’une belle façon, par le citron, ou encore le fruit de la passion, entremêlés de levures sauvages. De belles qualités olfactives et gustatives, qui ne cherchent pas à remplir une page complète, donc elle est assez distincte. Malgré tout, elle ne semble être qu’un souvenir sitôt dégustée. Pas de traces majeures ne restent en arrière-goût. N’empêche que le plaisir est renouvelé à chaque gorgée.(Blend 2. Embouteillée le 05-02-2012) (799-030913)

1 pint, 9.4 fl. oz bottle from Bieropholie, cold, shared with Blair. Very cloudy red court with a faint white head. Quite tart caramel, woodsy, a bit funky, tight. Medium body, gentle effervescence. Quite a bit of yeast fruit, light funk, lots of wood, bitter herbs, nice; lightly tart with nice sour fruits and a funky finish.

myxologyst66 (10) - lahaina, Hawaii, USA - AUG 23, 2013
A barrel aged blended sour ale with Maui lilikoi and bing cherries from Michigan. Fruity floral aroma, rich ruby red color with a complex sour fruit taste and tart dry finish. Perfectly balanced with a lingering sourness that leaves u wanting more. Ron had told me this beer gets even better after a year and after tasting a batch of the blend 8-2012 I agree 100%.

75 cl. Blend 2. Embouteillée le 05-02-2012. Une bière ambrée et une mince mais solide couverture mousseuse. Au nez, les arômes d’un gros bol de punch aux fruits tropicaux dans lequel nagent des choses pumpkiniennes. Au goût, un amalgame savoureux et justement aigre de fruits exotiques, de cerises et de fruits du verger. Une bouche qui propose un corps bien rempli avec un pétillement posé et une texture crémeuse. Une finale juteuse, sèche, sauvage et adorablement grimaçante. Fantastiquement bonne.

Une bouteille de blend 2 embouteillée le 05-02-2012. Liquide cuivrée avec une mousse beige. Un nez bien fruité avec des bretts et une bonne couche de bois. La touche Jolly est perceptible. La bouche est solide, «tart» avec des fruits et du bois. C’est simple mais combien efficace. Facile, agréable. Ron J. est un maitre dans la maîtrise des fûts et des bibites qui contaminent la bière et la rend si agréable à boire.

BelgianBeerGal (3103) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Batch 2, Bottled 05-02-2012 from Belmont. Pours an amber brown with a nice white head that dissipates quickly. Big aroma of sweet, meaty fruit and also some sour cherries; really cool smell like passion fruit too. Strong passion fruit flavor with a good tweak of sourness. Very well balanced. Great brew and one of the tops I’ve had in awhile.
