COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Extra 4 is a classic Belgian “Single” style, light golden in color, full of flavor and character and brewed with more hops and bitterness in comparison to the other well known St Bernardus abbey ales. Extra 4 will be brewed with high fermentation and bottled conditioned with an ABV of 4.8%. Extra 4 will be a unique, tasty and refreshing spring and summer quencher with a lower alcohol content than such other popular St Bernardus products as Abt 12, Tripel and Prior 8.

harrisoni (16927) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2016
On tap at Kent BF 2016. Very pale gold hazy lasting white head. Touch of soapy esters on the aroma. Better in the mouth. Somewhere between a lager and a Belgian wit beer. Drinkable enough. Some light hop on the finish. Some earthy lemon on the finish. Lemon curd. Got better.

Grzesiek79 (3886) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 20, 2016
Piwo dobre, delikatne i przyjemne. Jasne ze srednia piana sredniej wielkości i szybko opadającej. Lekko mgliste, jaskrawo zolta barwa, zapach cytryny i ananasa. W smaku kwaskowe leciutko, mało slodowe, mało słodkie, trochę ananasa i melona w smaku. Chmielne trochę i nuta kolendry, trochę jakby witbira przypominalo mi

Zlotta (1800) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, bottled in April 2016. Clear, pale greenish yellow with a massive, dense, stable, white head. Grassy, floral and slightly spicy aroma of fresh grass, some lychee, some flowers and spicy hops. Sweetish, floral and slightly grassy taste of biscuits, straw and some citrus, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, dry-grassy finish. Medium body, quite effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. A bit too subdued to my liking, but keeps its promise to be a decent thirst quencher due to the noticeable hops.
