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

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.

bjorn77 (426) - 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.

ajnepple (6622) - 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.

poured a cloudy red color with aromas of light funk, tart cherries, some dragonfruit, and some light lactic acid. Flavors are the same, tartness up front but not much in the end, light and refreshing.
