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.

ShivanDragon (1264) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2014
landjetik bij de Bierkoning in Amsterdam, schenkt amber/caramelbruin, wazig met een ietwat bruinige kraag die al snel totaal verdwijnt. aroma is redelijk fruitig van kers, citrus en passievrucht (meer naar de overrijpe kant). smaken zijn matig/redelijk zoet, matig bitter, zwak zuurtje van de fruiten, zwakke body, dun van textuur, lage co2, en fruitzurige afdronk. eigenlijk is het een stevig fruitsap met bier en een bittertje.

calm_dreamer (140) - GREECE - APR 2, 2014
Coloured like peaches marnelade with just the right medium to full body. Aroma of cherry and passion.fruit fills the nose. Fruity taste, sweet. Leaves the mouth acrid and wanting for more. There is a hint of alcohol after some time.

Beerdedone (2494) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Can. Pours a hazy amber with a small white head. Fruity aroma. Flavor of sweet malts, tart cherries, passion fruit, a bit of caramel and had a touch of hops with a crisp dry finish.

Can from The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Hazy amber lasting white head. Fruity plum aroma. Strange flavour. Some sharpness on the finish.

vadie (523) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2014
Couleur marron brumeux, comme l’eau du marais! L’arôme des fruits. Le goût est du fruit tropical avec plein de cerise aigre et du levure. C’est pas sucré, plutôt sec.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 22.09.2012, tap @ Mikkeller Bar:
Nøytral lett fruktig lukt med preg av malt, humle, tørka frukt, karamell, soya, buljong, gras. Lett frisk og syrlig smak med preg av malt, humle, gras, sitrusskal, høy, raude bær, syregras. Middels bitterhet som set litt. Grei.

Peter_L (473) - SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2014
Burk från Ölbutikken. Grumlig mörkt bärnstensfärgad vätska med lågt skum. Tydliga dofter av honung, bröd, röda bär och humle. Återhållen sötma och med en ren beska. Lite sträv munkänsla.

CapFlu (4364) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2014
Thin, white frothy head with a very cloudy brownish red body. Nose of lychee and sour cherry. Flavours of tobacco, cherry and cantiloupe. Not terribly agreeable. (Can) Purchased at Metro Liquors University Heights.

RumRunner101 (677) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 17, 2014
Cloudy apple juice like pour. Aroma is tart fruit, melon, apple, graham cracker. Flavour has underlying biscuity malts with decent tartness. Not picking up much cherry, but the passion fruit comes through along with tart apple skin like flavours. Enjoyable.
