COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This red ale, brewed with Liliko’l and Michigan cherries is ruby red in color, tart and refershing in flavor. Working with Ron is something I’ve wanted to do since I had my first Jolly Pumpkin Beer. Years later its 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. Aloha, John Walsh.
Yes, Michigan and Hawai’i are connected. It should be obvious to you know, 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 & Lilko’i. Starting to see the connection? I feel it. So does John. 4391 miles may separate our breweries, but not our thirst for the exquisite. Hipa! - Ron Jeffries

Pours a hazy purple red brown color. Aroma is fruit, cherries and funky yeast. The taste is carbonated bitter water and a fruit like substance. It’s got the strangest flavor I can’t even really explain it. What I can say is that I don’t like it and I don’t want another. I love a couple of the beers from Maui Brewing but unfortunately this one is a failure for me.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2012
On tap. Pours an opaque amber with an off-white head. Sweet caramel in the nose with a spicy edge and a vague phenollic whiff. Medium-bodied, a lightly tart fruity or berryish edge - not too sure what that is, but it’s quite exotic. Dry and lightly tart finish. A nice and different take on a cherry beer - as it turns out. 180912

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured dark reddish/maroon with a thin, light tan head. Sort of meh. Easy drinking but overall non-descript. I didn’t get a whole lot of fruitiness in this, instead dark caramel malts, mild bitterness with twigs and mild berry-like tones. And a vegetable-like quality. I’m thinking maybe tainted lines? But with what I have heard about this beer it doesn’t surprise me how lackluster it was.

Draft. A murky dark amber beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma has notes of fruits and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of cherries, malt, hay, and fruits, leading to a dry finish. The body is light.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Can from Total Wine & More in Henderson, NV. Murky amber orange pour with a small head. Faint tart cherry and some bready malts. Not really digging this one.

arminjewell (6293) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pour on tap at Freshcraft, dark orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought trash, some passion fruit, hints of medicinal cherry, pineapple, hints of caramel and toffee. Taste is a mix of dark caramel and toffee, trashy spice notes, touch of earthy cherry with some medicine, slight tart fruit, finishing fairly sweet, watery, something seemed off for sure.
