Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
A mix of barrel aged Four and Six using cherry and raspberry along with souring yeasts and bacteria. It's fruit forward in the nose with a balanced flavor bringing the malts and oak together. Named for friend and colleague Ben Love of Gigantic Brewing Company.


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)."

Decided to crack this guy, I remember trying the first batch and was hoping to try it again. Boy oh boy!
Upright did it right with this one.

Looks better than I was expecting but lets go to the nose, one sniff and you can tell this goin to be good. Im talkin Belgium good. Funk, sour and fungus right up front, very reminiscent to my memory of Zomer. That dirty fungus is right up front and im loving it.
Most shocking part, taste follows suit. This stuff is fantastic, really if I knew it was going to be this great I would have shared this guy.
mouth feel is spot one, nice carbonation o a medium body.

Overall this beer is stellar, I put it up with aged 3F (although I guess this guy is somewhat aged.)

I hope to try this guy again in the future, if Upright keeps it up (there anniversary ale was great) they are going to the top. track this one down
