A - Pours a small white head that fades pretty quickly. The beer has a medium amber color with a little pink-ish hues mixed in.
S - The nose is full of raspberries and acidity. Upon further examination there are some bretty notes apparent as well. Very nice fruity/sour aroma.
M - Light to medium in body with moderate carbonation. It's got a pretty dry finish. I feel like it's slightly under-carbonated, but could become more so as it ages.
T - The taste if full of raspberry fruit flavor. There is some sweet malt character mid-taste followed by a nice lactic sourness with a hint of vinegar. The beer finishes with a sour bite and a small amount of lingering malt sweetness.
Yet another excellent release from Upright. The fruit flavor from the raspberries is perfect and the sourness complements it w/o it being overpowering. There is a little malt sweetness present too, which makes for an interesting beer.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter.
A: Murky but vibrant red/orange/slightly brown beer with a small white head.
S: Funky and acidic. TONS of raspberry, with citrusy sourness. Lots of lactic acidity.
T: BURST of raspberry. WOW, this is like a kick of raspberry to the face. Mild funkiness and lots of lactic sourness. A bit of oakiness.
M: Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish.
O: This is a very nice sour. I loved the raspberry flavors in this. Upright is doing some excellent stuff.

Acquired via trade
Dark raspberry in color with a quickly forming, persistent, light pink head that leaves irregular spiderwebs and spots of lace down the glass. A gorgeous beer.
A very well rounded, integrated, lovely aroma: fresh raspberries, some mild hay and barnyard funk, along with some definite lactic sourness.
The flavor is similar to the aroma, and is delicately layered, intricate, and well-rounded: fresh raspberries, earth, moderate sourness, and some very mild barnyard and hay. No flavor is particularly dominant, and this is exceptionally drinkable.
A master of mouthfeel. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, but velvety. The flavor melt away yet come together exceptionally well.
I was very impressed with this one.

Appearance. Pours a deep peachy-amber with some haze and a thin white head.
Smell. Floral, sour berries, cherries , and even some peaches with a bunch of nice woody funk. Yum.
Taste. Sour fruits, mainly red berries, cherry, and vinegar. Some dank funk and old wood. Quite dry.
Mouthfeel. Medium body, medium-low fine carbonation.
Overall. Not as tasty as I had hoped. I liked Four Play much better, but still a fine sour.

Bottle: Poured a hazy reddish color ale with a light pink color head with good retention and some minimal lacing. Aroma consists of fresh tart raspberries with some oak and light acidic notes. Taste is dominated by tart raspberries notes with some oak and light tart cherries with a light vinous finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. Loads of complexity in this beer while retaining a great level of drinkability with great refreshing notes.
