750 ml bottle to taster (Batch 1, bottle #111/119; thanks alexsdad06). Looks good; a transparent dark orange with off-white lacing and lively carbonation. Smells good too; sweet and funky with cherry and raspberry notes. Tastes like it smells with a nice, lively mouthfeel. Good beer!

Bottle, 04/17/2013, batch 3. Thanks to quackus42. Pours blood orange color, white fizzy head fades quickly. Aroma is seedy raspberry blending to juicy strawberry and cherry notes, sour oak, wild yeast reminiscent to me of Crooked Stave brews. Taste is mildly tart raspberry with a kriek edge, sour malts, soft funky finish. Medium palate, smooth. Nice and tasty, not overly aggressive.

Poured from a 750ml bottle thanks to Doug. Big wild character, citrusy, fruity, dusty, cherries, stone fruit, lemon rind. A great sour, thanks Doug.

GT2 (8755) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 15, 2013
750mL b1 thanks to writerljberg and Travlr. Pours a full haze deep red to near purple, muddier pour, weaker foam. Nose is sharper Drie Fonteinen Kriek style with pithy black and Scharbeekse cherry, phenolic compounds, fresh raspberry, freshly baked cherry pie. More intense and more lambic/kriek in profile. But not as bright or focused as the Four Play nose. Taste is juicy strawberry, raspberry, much harsher acid component than the Four Play with intense lime and saltwater. Overall, an amazing kriek and very Belgian lambic in execution. But next to the Four Play, I thought this was too aggressively sour and not as integrated.

douglas88 (6336) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 15, 2013
2013 release. Pours a cloudy pinkish hue with a medium to small white swirling head. A big sour and woody nose with berries. The flavor was excellent: reminds me a bit of unblended lambic with fruit added, very tart, sweet berries and tart cherry, very woody, tart and dusty. Very drinkable.

Bottle courtesy of mostly me, with help from GT2, thanks! Cloudy ruby amber color, bright white edge head. Nice aroma of softly sour plums, grapefruit, mango. Taste is softly sour berries, Asian and tropical fruit. Fantastic.

Bottle shared by GT2 and Travlr. Pours clear amber with a medium, fizzy off-white head, short retention with good lacing. Aroma is cherry and raspberry with barnyard yeast notes and biscuit and straw malt. Flavor is fresh fruit of cherry and raspberry with straw and biscuit malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Dark golden in color, hazy with a thin head. Nice sour flavor and aroma. Terrific barrel aging . This is a super beer.
