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

A cloudy, muddy red ale. The nose is very fruity, in a confused, over-ripe sort of way. It also contains a little wet tobacco maltiness. In the mouth there is a mass of fruit again with a good lilikoi tartness and a fat, weird sort of cherry flavour. Very dense. It’s vaguely unpleasant for me.

On draft. Wasn’t really tasting the intricacies of this one. It was slightly spicy, a bit of a brown ale. Nothing too special.

Can into a cervoise. Ordered online. Some fruit. Cherry, mostly. A bit of fruit tannin. A bit of slightly-harsh malt. Finish is rough.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 24, 2012
(Draught) Pours a cloudy orange-brown body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of nuts, roasted grain, cherries, pineapple, bread, and passion fruit. Flavor of passion fruit, nuts, caramel, cherries, citrus, and toasted grain.

wchesser (2049) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Cloudy red brown with no head or lacing. Funky nose with strawberry passion fruit and barnyard sour cherry notes. Medium body. Bitter cherry with lightly tart acidic funky finish. More bitter than it should be just from hops probably the passion fruit showing through. Interesting, glad I got a can off an buddy and didn’t buy a sixer.

mcberko (16954) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours a murky orangey amber with a small beige head. Aroma of funk, slight tartness and wheat. Flavour is like a wheat beer, very muddled with some slight sour fruits and other murky flavours. A weird random mess full of muddled flavours. Not so good.

troopie (2311) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Tin. Pours red with medium head. Cherry aroma, but not over sweet cherries. Light malt flavour, with more cherries. Slim finish

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Can. Pours a murky orangish brown with short lived off white head. Aroma is odd but I dig it, fruity and malty, like a mix of orange, cherry and melon. Flavor is much the same with an added grapefruit note and lightly sweet malt with a nice tartness. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, an interesting and fun, refreshing, tasty brew to drink, just god awful pricey!
