COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sour, barrel-aged version of the beer by the same name. Brewed in collaboration with Maui brewing.

Yes, Michigan and Hawaii are connected. It should be obvious to you now, 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 and liliko’i. Starting to see the connection? I feel it. So does John. 4391 miles may separate our breweries, but no our thirst for the exquisite. Hipa! -Ron

Working with Ron is something I’ve always want to do since I had my first Jolly Pumpkin beer. Years later, it’s 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! -John

Bottle at home with my wife. Appearance is murky amber, with a light pink tint and a frothy, off-white head; good lacing. Somewhat funky, cherry, fruity aroma with lighter notes of oak, cranberries, light vinous, and tannin. Taste is lightly sour, nicely refined with touches of strawberres, raspberries, peach, passionfruit, wood, light vinegar, some orange and grapefruit juice with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Highly drinkable beer with awesome fruit notes, a touch of brett and not over-the-top sourness. Nice beer and much better than the Maui version.

Bottle pours a cloudy amber with a medium khaki head. Bright aroma of tropical fruits, prickly sweet, berries, and balanced brett. Taste is tart cherries, brett, slight barrel presence, and tropical fruit, nice sourness until the finish which is kind of flat and empty. Pretty nice except for the finish which was a let down.

Bottle. Hazy iced tea look to this. How did I manage to get almost no head when pouring this beer? I’m not impressed with my pour. A bit more sour and acidic smelling than what I normally get from jolly pumpkin beers. Good amount of funky cheese, lemon, and raspberry. Makes my nose tingle. A bit thin bodied, but damn does it have a sour punch towards the finish. Bile, raspberry, lots of acid. Good. Not as dry as most JP beers, and this focuses more on sour aspects.

Blend 7 batch, bottled 05/16/2012. Pours ruby brown, moderate head with decent lacing. Aroma is rich tropical passion fruit, juicy sour cherries, mildly acetic, caramel and oak. Taste is again very fruity, tart but not overly sour- tropical notes, berries, cherries- sour grains, barnyard character, woody. Light, juicy body. Not bad at all, light and fruity.

Bottled. A hazy dark red beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, caramel, malt, and berries. The flavor is sweet with notes of brettanomyces, wood, caramel, straw, and lemons, leading to a dry lemony finish.
