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

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
Can. Sombrero Banana beer to Canadians (no Hawaiian in my blood). Pours hazy amber with light rubeh tones, off-white head. Nose is nondescript berry, phenol, bread. Flavour is berry, malt, tartness blends well with bitterness. Quite fresh, not syrupy, a good fruit beer, I’m pleased to say.

FoolishMortal (987) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Slightly murky dark red-orange color, voluminous off-white head that dissipates quickly. Light musky and tart fruit aromatics. Acetic fruit flavors up front, with hints of cherry skin and a lingering but muted passionfruit. Ruddy finish with some grassy vegetal components and unripe fruit. Mouthfeel is on the light side, somewhat drying.

Pinball (10605) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2014
can from ølbutikken dkk 28. hazy brown, no head, but a fizz in the beginning. fruity and boozy aroma, almost as if the alc. pct. is a little too high compared to the fruity aroma. Flavor is alclohol and some berries, some licorice like spices, not really very well tasting, kinda fruity bitter. Not my kind of beer at all.

IndianaRed (2184) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 29, 2013
From a can into a pint glass. Huge foamy head. Nearly a gusher. Murky brown orange papery stale malt aroma. Fruity and slightly tart. Cherries I guess and I suppose passion fruit. Muddy and bizzare.

Salmoniform (243) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Poured from can to glass. Hazy amber with fizzy white head. Aroma is sugar, yeasty, cherry, orange, peppercorn. Body is nice with medium light body and good carbonation. Taste is initially sweet with an astringent bitterness following. Overall, this is nice with a bitter cherry essence.

Vanbrewver (9) - - DEC 20, 2013 does not count
6 pack. Nice beer. Tartness of the cherries and passion fruit comes through clearly, however not much else follows. Good for what it is, but lacking in complexity.

17/XI/13 - 12Fl. Oz. can from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - date: 6/8/13 (maybe canned on VI/8/13? Would surprise me as the can was in the shop on VI/17/13, but it’s not impossible) (2013-1085)

Very cloudy dark beige to muddy brown beer, creamy small off-white head, unstable, dissipates immediately. Aroma: lots of caramel malts, bit chocolatey, vanilla, sweet impression, bit piny, some citrus, hint of exotic fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sourish start, lemony, bit funky, bitter hops, spices, some cinnamon, bit of caramel. Aftertaste: piny hops, bit resinous, caramel and malts, some citrus, bitter ending, agrum fruits, some pineapple.
