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

2012-08-18. Hazy dark orange amber body with a small beige head. 3+ Interesting aroma, dry woody oak, something I can’t place, sort of a fruity spicy character. 7+ Flavour has a modest sourness throughout, light wood, sort of fruity with a nuance that defies my dissection and vocabulary at this point. 7++ Smooth average to light body. Enjoyable. Bottle, Campground Brewdown 2012 shared by j12601

750mL shared by CanIHave4Beers. Blend 6. interesting aroma. Just a hint of CCB passion fruit dragon fruit, just a hint. Mangoes for sure. Or maybe it's just whatever that fruit actually in it is. Flavor has some cherry. Finishes with a mouthfeel of dust. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marcus (10757) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours murky amber with a thin beige head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a mildly sour apricot flavor that mellows at the finish. Very subtle.

Drake (14109) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 28, 2012
750 mL bottle, Blend 10 bottled 5/24/12, courtesy of northernbrews. Thanks! Pours a hazy rust color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. The tart cherry and funk notes in the aroma blend extremely well, along with notes of grapes and currants. The taste is very similar but with an earthy note also. Medium bodied. Exceptional beer.

dogfish120love (1364) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Pours a cloudy blend of orange and brown. Notes of Grapefruit juice, grapes, faint hints of cherry and possibly oak.

tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle with Chris and Jay. Poured a slightly hazy brown with average off-white head. Notes of dark fruits – cherry, plum; typical Jolly Pumpkin yeast. Another solid beer from Jolly Pumpkin but not overly unique.

3.8
DasBierChef (1084) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 28, 2012
A nice fruity and unique brew. I suggest you try it if you find the opportunity to do something.

3.9
hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2012
750ml bottle. Poured an amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of some funk, dark fruits, yeast, wood, and some fruity. Tastes of the same lighter funk, wood, citrus, and fruity. Cherry juice. Lighter tart finish.

3.9
durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Pours bright amber, slightly hazy with a white head. Nose of lychee, cherries, oak, brett, some funk, darker sour fruits. Tastes more acetic, a bit of acetone. Nose is better than the taste, but still very nice.

3.9
umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Pours a mostly clear dark red color with a frothy head that lingers a bit. Sour red fruit aroma mixed with herbs and flowers. Very nice. It tastes just like it smells. I always have a hard time describing the taste of sours. There’s lots of red fruit and berry flavor mixed with lots of herbal spiciness and flowers. Moderate tartness in the middle and finish. High carbonation helps to calm the sourness. Acidic and vinegar in the finish but not too much. This is a really good sour, definitely one of the best I’ve had.
