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

MacBoost (1914) - Victor, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Thanks to pepsiedcan. Bottle. Pours a murky amber with a white head consisting of fine bubbles. Aroma of fruit, bananas, oak. First sip reveals a very easy drinking beer. Low carbonation. Not over sour or cloying at all. This is a nice change of pace. Easy drinking entry level sour that hits all the right spots. Like.

Bottle. Moderate grain, caramel and hay for the malt, light herbs for the hops, barnyard and dried leaves for the yeast, with red apple, cherry and a hint of vinegar in the background. Head is small, wispy, off-white, with slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky orangey amber. Flavor starts heavily acidic and sour, then finishes heavily acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery, with a lively carbonation and a very tart finish. Excellent Sour Ale with plenty of bite and complexity.

Jultsu (1073) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2017
BBE 12/21/16 ??? 750ml pullo virosta, kuumasta kaupasta, juotu lähes kokonaan yksin. Oranssin ruskea väri, olematon vaahto. Tuoksu makeahkon viettelevän hapan. Suutuntuma hapan, sangen juotava, lähes kutsuva juomaan vielä yhden hörpyn lisää. Imelä happamuus jää pyörimään suuhun, pientä kuivuutta, makeuttakin aistittavissa. Isosta happamuudesta isot pisteet.

VamboladeTolly (2116) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUL 25, 2017

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2017 750ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn) (5:3:4:2:9=2.3)
Misty orange, brief head. Woody sour aroma, dirty yeastiness. Taste is harsh yeasty sourness - vinegary. Palate acidic and harsh. Finish dirty and yeasty. God, do I have to drink all 750ml of this crap? Narp.

Rask0lnikov (1311) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 22, 2017
750ml bottle. Pours hazy amber colour. Thin white head. Sourness, notes of barnyard, slight acidity, fruitiness and hints of berries, earthy notes in the aroma. Notes of berries, fruits, notes of white wine, slight acidity. Apricoty and berriful aftertaste. White wine as well. Rather light bodied, bit acidic, well balanced wild sour ale.

RichTheVillan (7905) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2017
Bottle at Cott Botts; hazy burnished amber pour with a bubbly light tan head, aroma has passion and sour action, taste has subtle sourness, jammy fruits, hints of passion, easy drinking sour.

bjorn77 (494) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 4, 2017
Aromat: cierpki, owocowy, lekko octowy, wyraźna stajnia, intensywny. Wygląd: bursztynowe, średnioprzejrzyste, biała, centymetrowa, drobnopęcherzykowa piana, szybko zanikająca do obwódki na powierzchni. Smak: wytrawne, cierpkie, wiśnie, cytryna, limonka, jest bardzo cierpkie, ale nie jest przesadnie octowe. Nuty funkowe i bardzo wyraźna dębina z beczki, taniny wyczuwalne na języku. Finisz kwaśny, pojawia się też lekka chmielowa goryczka. Wytrawne, orzeźwiające, dosyć smaczne.

msbernac (2660) - Krakow, POLAND - MAY 13, 2017

ajnepple (6698) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2017
On tap at Hops & Pie. Light amber and clear appearance with a beige head. Aroma of tart cherries, grains, light barnyard funk and a light earthiness. Similar flavor, adding a mild tartness. Light to medium body with a light puckering feel, soft carbonation and a smooth oaky finish. Enjoyable.
