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)."
