BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales
Michigan, United States
jollypumpkin.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / 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

750 ML. bottle
Served in a Jolly Pumpkin snifter
Bottled 12/21/16

This beer pours a ruddy orange color with copper highlights. It is topped with an inch of tan head that leaves virtually no lacing.

The smell is tart with cherry with hints of ACV.

I taste the cherry and passion fruit right away. Then come the acidity and tartness. It's probably more sour than tart with a dry finish.

Pretty smooth mouthfeel

This is more sour than JP's traditional offerings which is a plus for me. I am glad I bought several bottles of it. Well worth the money and time in the cellar.

Dark amber rose.

Light fruitiness, light funk, fleeting breadiness. Subtle.

Lemon lime, bready, subtle and complex.

More bitter than sour. Sweet sugar finish. ABV tastes around 6%.

Very good.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip to a nice reddish hue topped by a dense finger of cream colored head that fades quickly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of tropical fruits and sour cherries with a hint of funk.
T: Taste is a fairly bright sourness up front before some juicy cherry and tropical fruit notes come in. Decent amount of funk in the background as well with some barnyard and a hint of band aids. Swallow is more juicy cherry and tropical fruits with some lingering sourness and slight hints of funk.
M: This beer is about medium in body and does feel a little syrupy on the palate. The carbonation is just barely prickly and the beer has a drying finish from the acidity.
O: Overall this is a really nice beer with some interesting flavors and some nice complexity. The two fruits play well with each other and don't clash. This is worth a try if you're into fruited sours.

Amber hued and somewhat cloudy in complexion. There's a tiny wisp of brown around two thirds of the rim and about the size of a dime on top. I smell tart tart cherries, tart Brettanomyces, and citrus fruit. The taste is packed with tart cherries leading the way along with plenty of bitter Brettanomyces and just a hint of citrus in the back of the palate. The mouth is very dry, crisp, and carbonated.

A: Lots of tart cherries, followed by passion fruit, light malt presence with a faint funk and moderate sourness.

A: Deep amber color, hazy, with a thin off-white head that adequate retention before forming a film across the glass.

T: Cherry flavor, followed by passion fruit, caramelized malt sweetness, followed by a light funk and barrel character with a moderately sour finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and moderately light acidity.

O: Tasty; the super cherries and passion fruit provides a great aroma and flavor with plenty of barrel character.
