Strange Fellows Poppinjay West Coast Sour Ale Review Strange Fellows Brewing Co. – Popinjay West Coast Sour Ale Review

In 473ml cans, the Strange Fellows Brewing Company has released what their calling the Popinjay, a West Coast Sour Ale. This beer is 4.5% alcohol and appears light amber in colour with a finger’s worth of dense head. The aroma is big with tropical fruit tones. Mango, lemon, passion fruit and mellow pine hit the nose with a sharp acidity. Tasting the beer, the sour tones are mellow compared to the nose and a wheaty character comes through along side the tropical fruit notes. Compared to the nose, the fruity hop notes are mellow but add to this sessionable, tart beer. This is a refreshing, crisp and quite delicious take on a West Coast Sour.

Alcohol – 4.5%
