colui72 (347) - HONG KONG - AUG 12, 2015
Bright clear brown, tan head. Sour aroma of yeast and balsamic vinegar. Taste is a pleasant sour version of dark fruits, wine, vinegar and malts. Great sour ale for me (not a fan of sours!).

750 mL bottle, consumed on 7-23-15. Labeled “EXP 10/2016.” Pours a hazy, medium brown with a slightly reddish tint. Moderate amount of light, bright, taupe head. Produces good, extensive, long-lasting lacing. Good-looking beer. Yeasty aroma gives a strong scent of banana as well as vanilla cake. Slightly tart, slightly chemical smell from the Brett. Rhubarb. Powerful and likable smell. Balsamic vinegar and even soy in both the aroma and the flavor. Fruity, tart flavor. Tastes like a tart, cherry caramel baked good. Caramel apple with a very tart apple. Bubblegum. Delicious! Excellent malt base with a perfectly tuned tartness. A superior beer. Medium body. Smooth, oily, and frothy in the palate. I’m kicking myself that it took me so long to try this beer given that it has been widely available for years. Perhaps the best sour I’ve ever had, and I love sours. The aroma isn’t quite as good after multiple sniffs, but the flavor actually improves on multiple sips. I almost rated it even higher.

Flaska från Hoppiness Warszawa. Brunsvart kulör med smutsgrå skumkrona. Syrlig, vinös doft av syltade mörka bär, jordkällare och vinäger. Söt och vinös kropp. Smak av portvin, vinäger, syltade mörka bär, coca cola och jordkällare. Udda, men jävligt bra.
