mcox90 (1522) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Sampled at RBNEG, Waterbury Vt. Pours hazy pink/orange with a thin pinkish head. Tart fruit aroma with some sour funk. Flavor is more tart fruitiness with some oak. Average body with active carbonation.

radarsock (882) - Vermont, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle supplied by Reynolds314. Many thanks! To undersized snifter, it pours a dark reddish orange. Acidic majesty. Sours cherries and lambic dregs.

djd07 (3251) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle as shown thanks to Phil. Pours a cloudy amber with small white head that lasts. The aroma is raspberry, funk, oak. Medium mouthfeel with cherry skin, raspberry, funk, and light sour finish. Very good.

deekyn (1115) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 26, 2014
A - pours a hazy, almost cloudy cherry cider red/brown with very low almost white head. S - well this smells like a kreiky/framboise. Acetic acid and lemon juice lead to raspberry juice, tart cherries, fleshy blackberries, and apple juice. Some sulfur, barrel funk, lacto and lemon zest. M - nice rounded sour with a good balance between tartness and sweet. Medium/light body, no carb, dry acidic finish. T - the taste is raspberry/cherry apple juice, some blackberries. Acetic acid and lemon juice for sure. Quiet barrel funk and wet oak. O - Very kriek/frambois combo. 4.1

jcartamdg (1864) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Pours a cherry brown with no head. Aroma of cherries, raspberries, oak, lacto, brett and funk. Taste is berries, cherries, oak and funk. fruity yet dry and vinous. mild carbonation but not in a bad way. this is a complex sout thats not over the top. really good

HonusWagner (1316) - Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Sort of underwhelming, considering how good Four Play is, the raspberry and cherry don’t really provide much more than a light and hard to distinguish sweetness, not very complex, still tasty but basically a Bruery beer.

Nocturne (744) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Sample from bottle. Hazy orange with patchy foam. Cherry and slight citrus aroma. A little thin at first then opens up with a sour wash of what tastes like forest/hedgerow berries. Tasty stuff. I liked the intriguing fruit character.

brystmar (1189) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle from the first batch of non-Sole-Comp Blend Love. Hazy orange-gold body yields white head and lace. Medium retention. Raspberries jump from my glass, infecting my olfactory senses. Smooth berry concoction, hearty soured yeast profile; the blending here is stellar.

Rustyham (1717) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bitter sweet sour, pink and fruity, very funky, very exciting and complex. Get it. Beer

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2013
2014-08-30. Lightly hazy pink body with a small frothy white head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity, sweet cherry, very mild raspberry. Light funk. 7+ Flavour is pleasantly tart and sour, ad increasingly sour as you go. Mild cherry and raspberry flavours throughout. 7++ Spritzy average bodied palate, effervescent carbonation. 3+ Lovely. A bit more depth to the fruit would be nice but not required.
