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

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
