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

Murky brown colour, white head. Fruity aroma, light sweet, apricot, gooseberry, pineapple. Light sweet flavour, light sour touch, light cherry, bit astringent. Bit thin. Fruity finish, gooseberry, berries, grape peels. Feels like it could’ve benefited from a bit more body.
