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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle shared with the group (111/119). Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma is tart fruits favoring raspberries and cherry, acidic, lactic, woody with some light floral notes. The flavor has ample tart berries and cherry with quite a bit of wood as well. Some lactic notes, but not as sour as I’d expected. This was very easy to drink and a real treat.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to Michael for this bottle. Pours a gloomy burnt orange color, like a dark tequila sunrise (sunset?). Sublime aroma, perfectly lactic and milky with sweet cherries and a nice raspberry tartness. Flavor follows in kind, bursting with soft fruit, about 60/40 cherry to raspberry. Creamy lactic mouthfeel, pillowy on the palate, sourness is modest but appreciable. Basically the beer version of a nice lean Greek yogurt with perfectly ripe fruit on top. Fantastic beer.
