2020 has been an exciting year for craft beer fans in South Australia with many new breweries joining the existing ranks and already established breweries taking another step up in quality. One brewery which has burst onto the scene is Loophole Brewing Co, based down in the South East. A side project for the Cape Jaffa Wines team. Consistent, quality releases combine with funky limited edition sours (with help from fruit direct from the winery) to really set them up as one of the most exciting breweries of this year.

Enter their ‘Sourloops’ series which currently consists of three sour beers all containing plenty of that packed fruit juice flavour we love from heavily fruited sours. The first one we got our hands on is the Mango and Passionfruit edition.

This one pours basically just like a juice, with little to no head and no chance of seeing through the glass. It smells like a funky breakfast juice. You can tell this is going to be a giant juicy beast from the moment you tip it into the glass. The flavours pour from the glass with a certain richness that can only be achieved with this high level of fruit additions.

By extension this is perhaps not the summer slammer sour like some we have reviewed lately but definitely a winner on the taste front. The mango and passionfruit come through in spades on the palate. There is a sweetness there but it is beautifully balanced by the tartness. The flavour sort of smacks you in the face but then hands you an icepack shortly after as everything just seems to work. Bang Lassi is such an appropriate name for a drink like this with those who venture away from the Kingfisher lager and random assortment of soft drinks at the local Indian restaurant can possibly attest to.

We’re really excited to see where they take this series moving forward and can definitely see a few of these going down nicely over the Christmas period. Nice work team.
