3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Reynolds314 for sharing at the RBNE gathering. Very rare occasion where I like a sour, I enjoyed this one rather much. Aroma is blended strawberry, blackberry and cherry notes, sour oak, wild yeast.
Flavor is lightly acidic, with lots of berry, light oak barrel, delicate flavors. Balance of fruit and funk is nice. Mellow sourness with tons of fruit. Pretty tasty stuff, really enjoyed it which for me; is rare in the style. Liked it!

Bottle supplied by Reynolds314. Many thanks! To undersized snifter, it pours a dark reddish orange. Acidic majesty. Sours cherries and lambic dregs.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
