I'm still not on board the sour bandwagon. These beers don't look or smell great, and to me, the sour flavor is tolerable, if not enjoyable. Four Play is a solid sour though, and perhaps you should modify my rating if you're a true sour lover. The tart cherry is present, but not overwhelming, and the sour bite is subdued, to me a sign of thoughtful blending. Certainly worthy of a taste if you are exploring the style.
