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

A-pours a hazy cherry body with an off white head that reduces slowly to a layer of foam

S- some bandaid aroma, oak, slightly tart fruit, sweet cherries, funk, berries

T- upfront tart fruit skin, heavy oak, cherries, red grapes, funk, citrus peel, light fruit

M- medium high carbonation , medium body

Interesting.. Unique.. Kinda complex, but mediocre at the same time. Not bad
