Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is hazy and bright orange with a quarter inch of thick, white head. The aroma offers cherries, yeast, light funk. Smells awesome. Great flavor as well. Cherries shine through. This beer challenges my will. Itís hard not to gulp this. Simply fantastic. Masterful. Would love to have more of this. Highly recommended.

Sampled at GonzoIlliniís Birthday Party (Western Springs, IL). Happy Birthday, Tony! Pours a rich ruby amber pour, growing rich haze with good glow, darker. With richer loose tannish head, dies to a film and laces small. Aromas are growing sourness, berry and citrus, lemons, grapefruit, touch of cranberry. Some straw, funky brett, and lactic elements. Initial is lighter end of the fold, showing richer sour edge, berry and cranberry, lemons and grapefruit. Some yogurt, touches of lactic elements grow. Gentle funky brett, cobwebs take over into the middle. Richer sourness up front, dying into a mellow lactic and sweet tart middle. Sour melon, touches of oak, lactic and lemony. Backend and finiush show a dryness, rich melange of fruit. Quite nice.

pour is grapefruit orange with thin to no white head. The nose is woody, strong fruity Brett, sour cherry, note of green apple. Taste follows suit, lots of sour cherry, oak and fruity Brett, light lacto. Body is very dry, light and a bit granular. Still very nice, very fruity and Brett, decent sourness, and nice oaky presence.

A: Poured an orangish color with a nice white cap and some bubbles
S: Cherries, some cream with some old wood, horseblanket and a touch of lemon?
T: The cherries are an immediate with red wine which provides some light grape blended with some oak, Earth, funk and a stinkging lacto presence with a light hay and lemon squeeze
M: Well carbonated, medium body with a unique feel from wine like silky texture, lacto and the traditional dryness of a farmhouse. All uniquely blended

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Four Play pours a peach color with a brown tint. A soft and gentle foamy off-white head rests on top before fading gradually.
The aroma reminds me a bit of peach yogurt. A little bit of vanilla works with a lactic sour peach and cherry aroma.
The flavor is definitely on the lactic side. Sour cherry, vanilla, a little bit of oak, a touch of red grapes, and a little bit of lemon all contribute to a pleasantly sour and smooth flavor.
The body is on the full side for the side, with a noticeably creamy carbonation. This is smooth and very drinkable.
Overall, this sour is one of the smoother American wilds I have had.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Botlle provided by Matt, sampled side by side with Blend Love. Poured into my Jackie Oís snifter. Pours a hazy orange with minimal head. Nose reminds me of another beer, but cant figure out what it is....Isabelle? That wouldnít make sense though as the pinot is pretty evident. Some stone fruit, apricot, and funk. More acidic than the Blend Love, but I like it. Some funk and cheesiness and a lot of citrus fruit, really dig the balance. Itís nice and sour but isnít incredibly in your face. The palate is lightly spritzy, with a long finish and light mouthfeel. My favorite Upright to date, would like to grab a bottle of it.
