20/04/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al compleanno della Brasserie 4:20, invecchiata un anno in fusto. Wow! Bellissimo color pesca, denso, appena torbido e impenetrabile, schiuma bianca. Al naso spicca l’aroma fruttato di pesca, molto intenso, con lieviti ben in evidenza. In bocca è prevalentemente dolce, delicata, fruttata, di una morbidezza ed eleganza disarmante, con una punta acida deliziosa. Carbonazione corretta, magnifica consistenza vellutata, in bocca sembra un petalo di rosa. Bellissima fruit beer.

On draught at the Summer Beer Festival, Rome, on MesandSim’s stag do. Murky pale orange gold with a thin white head. Peachy, apples, slightly sour dry finish. Quite enjoyed it.

A: Amazing aroma of fine peaches "volpedo". A: like a peach T: Peachy, sweet, low sourness. P: amazing. O: 20/20. When the bottle is ok the Quarta Runa is one of the best beer in its style.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Pours a hazy orange with a large bubbly white lacing head. Aroma of fresh peaches and other Belgians yeast fruity notes. Flavor had the peaches and Belgian yeast profile as well. No funk, would like better if it had some bugs.

portableparty (2293) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle to snifter. Pours pale gold with a peach hue and shows a split second of white soapy head. Aroma is tart and barnyard with a sour peach scent. Taste is more of the above with a nice gentle sourness and there are some faint citrus and leamon notes. Palate is medium with a very dry finish! Not a bad brew, but will not go back to it due to price!

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Bottle thanks to Jebus13. Pours with a hazed yellow body and a small white head. Aromas of peaches, nectarines, juicy, fruity, honey, nutmeg and a bit of caramel. Flavors a a bit minerally, grainy, peaches. A touch thin and bland. Very low levels of acidity. Medium bubbles.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2011
On draught during Mes’ stag do at a BF in Rome. Peach and stewed apple aroma. Thin white head. Not really sour. But good balance on the sour front. Definite stewed apple

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Thanks Gene! Hay colored, moderate cream head, medium-sized bubbles with light lacing. Herbal nose of perfume, caramel, and brown sugar, very well rounded. Flavor is fruity and vinous, sweet grapes ruling, but it’s a bit wartery and oddly balanced between heavy sugar/caramel and lighter, straightforward fruit. Short, lightly peppery grain finish.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 10, 2011
Birra di indiscusso valore nonostante il rating basso, dovuto principalmente a unu esordio non brillantissimo. Le ultime quarte runa sono strabilianti. Il 4 è una media tra il 3 scarso delle prime cotte e il quasi 5 delle ultime. Forse attualmente la miglior birra italiana in assoluto.

Bottle at RnH during the Sours Gone Wild Event with Pat, Andrew, Dallas & Bobby. Pours a bright, bright hazy orange body with no head, but then again this sample is pretty small considering its from a bottle. Aroma is citrus and peach. Mouthfeel is dry with notes of pilsner malt, fruit, and bitter peach.
