Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Three-finger head. Very active khaki head with very little retention. Orange-brown color with high clarity. Head recedes down to half a finger and is interesting looking.

S- Passion fruit, bananas and other tropical fruit. A smidgen of alcohol and brown sugar. Interesting, deep smell.

T- Slightly sour. Tropical fruits, passionfruit and guava. Brown sugar. Slight amount of alcohol makes itself known.

M- Wet and... chewy? Finishes sticky. Weird.

O- Mediocre beer. I like the passionfruit, but so strange.

Enjoyed this 12oz can out of a craft beer glass.

A: Pours a red-copper hue with a huge, 4-finger, white head that slowly dissipates leaving a nice trail and ending in a sold lace.

S: Fruity sweet aroma.

T: Sweet tart fruity flavor with a wine-like quality. Finishes on the dry side of sweet.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Interesting fruity beer – worthy of a try.

12oz. into a Flying Dog Goblet

A: Probably one of the least appetizing colors that I have seen. It looks like muddy water that is a solid brown. I'd rather not liken it to #2 water, but it really is. Very cloudy/hazy. Crazy head upon initial pour that diminished to not even a layer of bubbles. Also, it has a decent amount of sediment at the bottom.

S: Sweet smelling like that of raisins and sour cherries. Also, a bit of grape juice or fruit cocktail as well, with a bit of yeastiness to it.

T: A bad mellow malt that seems like a lager. Tastes like "beer" and I mean that in a bad way as in the cheap stuff and the taste that people that don't like beer taste when they try one.

M: Quite carbonated and goes down like a slightly flat soda.

O: Couldn't finish it. There is nothing in here that I like. It is flat tasting (not as in carbonation) and dull. Beers that I don't like always remind me of why I didn't like beer before. It is that standard ubiquitous taste that I associated with any beer that I had tried (Rolling Rock, Yuengling and Leinenkugel, plus various ABI). It will become a part of my beer bread (along with Undercover and some Swamp Ape).

Well, I picked this beer up across the border in Maryland. On the bottom of the can it says that it was canned on 051102. Not sure how to interpret that date, but I am really hoping that one "0" is a typo.

Popped the top and IT'S A GUSHER! A gusher can...never really saw that coming. Explosive carbonation that fills the entire glass with an off-white head. The body that develops is a murky, muddy red color. Red mixed with burnt orange. Well, that head was all for nothing because before I can even take a swig, the head dies down to almost nothing. No lacing is left behind either.

Smell is quite delicious actually, if not straightforward. Pretty much tart passionfruit mixed with sour cherries. Nothing else in the nose.

The flavor is not as fruity as the aroma. There is some light tartness here, but nothing aggressive. Light flavors of sour cherries and caramel malts cross the palate, and the passionfruit comes out more in the exhale. I'd look for more fruit character in this. The flavors were a bit muted.

Carbonation was out of control when I first opened this beer. Rapid bubbles left the beer all too quickly. Mouthfeel is fluffy at first, then settles down and almost becomes slick on the tongue. Medium body, decent.

Yeah, I wasn't sure I would like this beer when I first poured it. But there are some redeeming qualities about this. The aroma is very nice, and that is a lovely mix (cherries and passionfruit). I wouldn't pick this up again, but I would certainly have another if someone offered it to me. Strikes me as more of a "Fruit Beer" than anything.

On tap at Rackhouse, 10oz served in a globe. Appearance was murky red with no head. Aroma was wet dog and seawater. Liek a dog who just came out of the ocean, yuck. Flavor was a muddy fruit flavor, grainy, really just bleh. Overall a pretty poor showing considering Jolly Pumpkin was involved. Thank God I didn't buy one of the overpriced six packs.

P: 12oz can into a perfect pint glass.

A: A murky amber that pours with a huge off white head that quickly fades into a light coating on top of the beer. Lacing is non-existent.

S: Sweet grassy malt with some tropical fruits, I'm not really getting much in the way of cherries. No hop aroma at all. The passion fruit really comes through as the beer warms.

T: Sweet up front, bitter in the finish. A strange alcohol like flavor that I can't place. Flavors seem "spikey," like they're all fighting to be in the forefront but none are winning. Tropical fruit in the finish that lingers on your tongue.

M: Highly carbonated with medium body. Probably a little too much carbonation for me. This is one of the least smooth beers I've ever had.

O: Not a great beer at all, probably not even a good one. It lacks direction and isn't all that pleasing to drink as it lacks smoothness. In the end, I find the flavors to all be a bit weird.

Pours a reddish mahogany, little to no froth or retention. Smells of toasted malt and grilled fruits. In the taste, nutty, cocoa like malt flavor. Small acidic cherry riding out a hint of fruitiness, but this is malt forward. Little to no hops, just a small earthy flavor to cut the sweet. A bit of toasted bread, finishes more or less clean. Medium bodied but quite full, some interesting flavors. This beer is crying for some wild yeast, being a collaboration with Jolly Pumpkin, they took the easy way out.

Pours a dark muddy pond amber/orange with considerable yeast and fruity haze. Barely any head that fades to nothing quickly. Is this beer or juice?

Lightly tart sour cherry and passion fruit citric acidity matched with some biscuity yeast and cereal grains. Very earthy overall.

Pale bready malt with traces of caramel sweetness, earthy hops add a bit of bitterness in what would be a very boring amber if not for the fruit juice which brings a juicy fruity cherry note with a short fading citric acid tart finish that is distinctly Lilikoi (passion fruit). Some wet paper bag in there too but I'll pass that over.

Kinda falt and fruit juice like. The carbonation is just enough to keep it going. Average body, well hidden alcohol.

Getting kinda used to this tart finish that maui brewing is putting into all their experimental seasonals. It's not a great beer by any stretch of the imagination but the concept has not been done before and pairing with Jolly Pumpkin has to account for something. Worth a try if you can get a single just for the novelty of beer brewed with cherries and passion fruit.

Enjoyed this one along with the Jolly Pumpkin Sobrehumano. This one pours a murky copper color, mostly opaque all around with a very small beige head that fades into nothing within a minute or so. The aroma is kind of strange - subdued and mild, without any certain flavor that "stands out" or catches my attention. There is some noticeable sweetness, but it's hard to pinpoint a specific descriptor. The best I can do is either apple or pear, but that's kind of grasping at straws, as there isn't really a definitive flavor of either. Just a generic sweetness on the nose, with a bit of caramel and toffee as the main backbone. There's also a mild metallic aroma that comes through - not sure if this is from the can or not, but I've had other canned beers that didn't have this aroma, so I think that's just a cop out.

The taste unfortunately contains that same ambiguous sweetness that perplexed the aroma of the beer. Maybe some apple skins, maybe some pears, maybe some light white grapes. Just a fairly one-dimensional and mild sweetness that doesn't really assert itself or establish any kind of real estate on your palate. It just hangs there without offering much at all. There's a musty and bitter, funky and cellar-like taste that really comes out heavy in the aftertaste. But it's so unbalanced due to the anticlimactic sweetness that the heavy musk just seems out of place and unnecessary. Some caramel and toffee notes from the malt add a touch of sweetness and offer a bit of guidance, although the flavor combination in this beer seems to be a lost cause without much direction. Thin-medium mouth feel with pretty heavy carbonation.

After having the Jolly Pumpkin Sobrehumano, this beer couldn't have been any bigger of a let down. A nebulous concoction of sweetness and just a boring aroma and flavor profile lead to an overall very uninteresting beer. I'll pass on this one next time.

From 9/2012 notes.
Pours a cloudy mahogany brown amber. Tall two finger off-white head that dissipated over a few minutes to a thin head with light patchy lacing. Unusual aroma of tropical and unidentified fruit and a bit of vegetable soup, tart sweetness. Flavor of tart fruit with passion fruit dominating, cherry, orange, turning a bit medicinal and astringent in the middle and finish. Finish is particularly tart and astringent. The fruit mixture was somewhat off-putting at first taste, but I have to admit that it grew on me as I drank this ale. Unfortunately, the finish was a bit unbalanced, but did have a grassy/hay quality that I also grew to appreciate in the end. Light to medium bodied. An interesting experiment that ended up just a bit to unbalanced. A bit more malt body could have improved the finish to allow appreciation of the interesting fruits. Truly glad I tried it because it is unique and interesting, but probably not a repeat.

Pours out cloudy orange brown. The head is tan and lacks retention. No lacing at all. The smell is mostly of cherries. If you dig a little you might be able to get a little honey. Getting mostly tart cherries and somewhat of a medicinal taste in the background. Towards the finish the sweetness of the cherries comes a long with a bit of cooked sugar. The mouth feels seems watered down. The carbonation seems to be somewhere in the middle. Overall Im really not that impressed. I will not be purchasing this beer again. I didn't try the first beer in the series however I will be trying the 3rd. 3rd times a charm?

Thanks saisonrichbiere for the hook up

The beer pours a hazy, rusty light brown with no head and a touch of sediment. The nose is definitely interesting with a grain sweetness and a bit of tart fruit peel. The taste is definitely unique with a big liliko'i presence up front followed by a touch of tart cherries and grain in the finish. The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with very little carbonation and a semi-dry, slightly roasty finish. This beer is pretty unique tasting and under appreciated. I'm quite excited to try it as a sour!

Pretty raw and even coarse fruity offering. Not a very remarkable collaboration.

Presentation: 12 oz can. Black and blue background with an image of an skeleton paddling on a surfboard with a volcano in the back. Side narratives offer an description of the brew, intent, and collaboration. Notes canned 051102, and 8% Alc. by Vol. Served in a tulip glass.

A - Deep amber pour, nice white head, moderate retention with a fair surface ring and some lacing.

S - Muted nose, some fruity notes… Slightly tropical but it is almost a figure of the imagination.

T - Fruity, sweet, yeasty, with an off flavor that feels like an overdose of cascade fighting the passion fruit, ouch, this is not nice sourness really...

M - Medium/light body with medium carbonation, slight creamy touch with an off lingering finish.

O - Not particularly enticing, not really.

Notes: It almost feels like a coarse amateur brew at points. Still drinkable but... And maybe I had it too fresh? This is based on old notes from the early release date...

A chilly can is poured into a pint glass.

The beer is translucent and has a brownish/red color. The tan head is large and made up of foam.

While pouring the beer, I can smell tart cherries. Getting up close to the beer, I can pick up floral and tart scents.

The beer has a really nice tart cherry flavor. It doesn't quite taste sour or funky, like a wild ale, but there is an intense flavor you don't find in many fruit beers. The taste is more complex than a simple cherry flavor; that must the passion fruit making itself known.

The beer has a decent puckering sensation. It is medium-bodied with average carbonation. The coating is thin but does retain some fruit flavors.

This is a pretty interesting beer. I don't think I would have known it was a red ale; to me, this beer is much more about the fruit! I don't know if this beer is still available anywhere, but if are a fan of tart fruit beers, you should seek it out.

Poured gently from a can into a pint glass

Appearance: Cloudy amber color. Excessive carbonation. Three to four fingers of head forms, but quickly fades with no lacing.

Smell: Sweet malt, sour cherry, and some funk.

Taste: Tart up front. I get some sweet malt and tart cherries. The flavor profile seems disjointed and not well balanced.

Mouthfeel: Over-carbonated and very coarse.

Overall: I was disappointed by this beer. I have enjoyed a number of Jolly Pumpkin offerings and had high expectations for this. I would have liked the cherry flavor to come through more as well as a little more tartness. There is a noticeable difference between the Maui version and the Jolly Pumpkin version. I would recommend trying to Jolly pumpkin version instead. I would not buy the Maui version again, but I would have te Jolly Pumpkin version.

Pour is cloudy carmel color. Fruity nose with medium malt backing. Slight sour nose.

Tart entry, balanced by fruity sweet malt. Don't get much cherry here but for slight tart. Unique passionfruit flavors. Just not getting much here - nothing to take the lead.

Served in a standard pint.

A. Pours a cloudy, hazy amber color. About a quarter finger of thin offwhite head traces the top of the brew. Lacing is fairly good.

S. Caramel malt, toasted barley, faint, ripe fruit, some raw vegetal coloring in the background. Very "meh." Like a fruity brown ale, with nothing really standing out. Not bad, but not impressive.

T. Cherry sweetness balanced by some toasted malt and caramel notes. Not getting much in the way of hops, but it does have a buttery finish that is tempered somewhat by an odd, green peppery vegetal note. As it warms, metallic flavors become more prevalent.

M. Moderate to high carbonation with a slightly chewy and tannic mouthfeel. I'd say the drinkability is low because the malts sit heavy and the tannic notes dry out the palate. I wouldn't one more than one of these.

O. A super "meh" beer. I'm not even really sure what the hell they were going for, but this isn't very tasty. A mildly tart amber doesn't sound good on paper, and it's certainly not good in the glass. There are traces of a solid amber beneath the fruitiness, but the two styles are in conflict and, rather than drinking like a nice sour, it drinks like a metallic, vegetal disappointment. Not good, man, not good.

Poured into a goblet glass from a can.

Appearance- Pours a cloudy, orangey brown with a thick bubbly head that quickly reduces to a thin layer of residual bubbles hanging out atop the brew. You can tell there's some solids suspended in there.

Smell-Sweet fruity tang with biscuity notes in there. Very balanced between the two. Tart cherry, strawberry, sweet cream, faint oatmeal, and shortbread. Smells like a strawberry shortcake or a cherry tart from top to bottom.

Taste- Bold and surprisingly dry given the sweet fruity aromas. Malty hints masked by strong fruit essence. Again, for as sweet and tart as it is on the nose, the fruit flavors are very underlying. Very creamy passion fruit note, but much bolder and less sweet than any passion fruit I've ever eaten. The passion fruit essence hangs out on your tongue and in your throat for a while after you swallow, and subtle dried cherry notes emerge. Pretty awesome vibes here. Big and "beery" up front, and a strong fruity essence on the finish, but not at all sweet. Very well done with the fruit.

Mouthfeel- A bit soft with a bubbly fizziness. A little flat on the finish. The weak point of the brew if there is one.

Overall- First off, I am extremely grateful to get one of these being that they aren't available here in Michigan. Second, I was truly excited to hear of this being a collaboration with Jolly Pumpkin, and feel extremely fortunate that i was able to try them both. That being said, I like this one better than the Jolly Pumpkin version in that the flavors aren't competing with the sourness. I truly enjoyed this brew for all of its complexity and uniqueness. I thought that the addition of the Michigan cherries and Hawaiian liliko'i was a great idea, and it definitely made for a truly unique and tasty brew. Though in the JP version, the sourness accents the fruit flavors at times, its the sour that prevails. This brew allowed the flavors to stand up on their own and add a distinct character to the beer. Truly unique and truly delicious.

If you can get it try it.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy peachish red. Not quite the ruby promised on the can. Small collar and wispy cap is dirty white. Pours with minimal carbonation.

Smell: Nice mealy passion fruit. Solidly tropical. Big fruitiness also pushes apple and pear. Floral and a nice level of citrus. Some orange and grapefruit skin. Some mild malt sweetness. Bursts of lemon zest. Some bready backing loaded with passion fruit. Nice ripe cherry fruitiness as well. Nice balance of fruit. Far less like a smoothie shampoo than the JP bottling.

Taste: Some earthy hops. Vaguely musty. Loaded with passion fruit and tart Michigan cherry. Minor malt sweetness. Some biscuit malt in the background. Mealy fruitiness pushes some pear flesh and green apple skins. Some banana and backing spiciness as well. Herbal and earthy. Mellow.

Mouthfeel: Minimal carbonation. Body runs on the lighter side of medium. Clean with a mild dryness on the back

Overall: I'm confused as to why this is the better beer.

A step above the Jolly Pumpkin version. Less like a smoothie and more a solid take on the mellow fruit beer. Easy drinking and tropical. It hits the goal of fusing the two regions.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this can

Consumed 11/10/12

Appearance: Medium amber color, more of a rusty copper in the light, with clarity around the edges - small, off-white head - small ring, leaves a few spots of lacing, not much

Smell: Juicy and fruity - lots of fleshy passion fruit - cherry flesh as well - lightly tropical and lightly fruity - some amber, reddish malts underneath - prominent flavor is a canned mixed fruit

Taste: Canned exotic fruit - passion fruit and fleshy cherries - bready and caramel malts - lightly toasty, caramel malts, minimal bitterness, not much else

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, smooth, minimal carbonation but it works

Overall: Sober humans?

Fruity and interesting, but not something to write home about. If you really like passion fruit, this will be a treat. Otherwise, it's just an average amber-ish ale.

12 Ounce can poured into pint glass.

Appearance - A very nice rust color. Tons of carbonation and a ton of quickly fading almost white head. I had to stop pouring several times to let the head die down. Quite a bit of sediment formed in the bottom of the glass. No lacing. 3.5/5

Smell - It smells a lot more like a cider. Extremely fruity. I say apple. 3.5/5

Taste - It really isn't doing it for me. Very tart and super carbonated. It almost tastes like one of those fruity malt liquors. There isn't anything complex under the tartness. One dimensional. 2/5

Mouthfeel - The amount of carbonation in this beer ruins the mouthfeel for me. Too much fizz. 2.5/5

Overall - It looks very pretty, unless you are one of the people that hate sediment. Unfortunately, appearance and smell are not weighted as heavily (for me) as taste. The more it warms up, the worse it gets. I highly doubt I'm going to finish this. Luckily the can was only 99 cents. 2/5

This beer is offensively bad, drain pour. It tasted like trash and cigarette butts or perhaps like the dirt under the bleachers.

Beer served in a cervoise glass. Beer is amber, dark amber and clear without sediment, sediment makes it hazy, nice white head, medium and large bubbles, moderate carbonation, looks good.

Aroma is odd but not too off putting, mildly tannic, a little roast maybe.

I had the Jolly Pumpkin version of this beer and enjoyed it, This one I hated. It was thin and acrid, harsh and tasted like garbage. I gave it a fair chance but it failed on all front. AVOID AVOID AVOID. Never ever EVER make this beer again. I think I threw up in my mouth a little bit just thinking about it.

Well this is my first review so here it goes. I am a huge fan of Maui brew co. but I am left feeling flat on this one. I puored it in to a Sam Adams perfect pint glass and the the apearance was promising, with a clowdy brown reminicent of a hefeweizen and a off white head. The smell was confusing I got hints of cherry mixed with a lot of yeasty biscut, not very exciting. The taste was right on par with the smell, with the addition of a slightly sour undertone. You can pick up the cherries and I did find it refreshing that they were an accompanying flavor, it didn't steal the show and they didn't have the caugh syrup qualities of other cherry beers. My overall opinion is that I appreciate the attempt and it is very drinkable but it just isn't memorable. When two craft brew giants collaborate on a limited release and charge $14 for a sixer I want memorable.

Pours a nice mild amber color with a thick, frothy head into my glass. Awful lot of carbonation there!

Musty? Smells like it. I can't tell where the passion fruit and cherry flavors come in. Otherwise, it smells like an average canned IPA.

The fruit flavors cheapen the overall flavor, which is an unsavory, musty combo of weak cherry/passion fruit "flavors". It just doesn't work here.

Ditto on mouthfeel. Thin and again, where's the actual beer?

If I were the lead brewer, I'd be ashamed to sign my name to this crap. You have to develop a strong base beer before you throw in the extracts, not the other way around.

Poured into a DFH etched snifter.

Deep mahogany with an off white head that builds up massively then quickly dissipates. Nose is sweet and fruity with notes of cherries, mild citrus, tropical scents (kind of mango-esque but lighter probably from the liliko'i), some brown sugar and some dark fruit. Smells like a sour, which has my hopes up because we don't get many sours here in Tucson. The taste is a slight letdown from the nose, but its not too far off. Light cherry flavors flow into a tart, tropical rush that overtakes the palate and fades into a grapefruity tart/sweet finish. It finishes pretty dry despite the final sweet flavors. Its not quite a sour but it has that nice tart taste I crave from them. I'll probably grab a couple sixers and keep them around for a few months to sate my cravings for sours.
