Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Released March 2012 (750ml bottles)
Second Release - March 2013

From Upright's blog:
"...essentially the Four Play but with barrel aged Six with raspberries mixed in. The inaugural release... used 25% of the Six. It's an evolution of the Four Play, giving it added layers - more malt, more alcohol, deeper color, and more fruit (but still in check with the malt profile)."

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
