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.

If you're into the trendy "session" beers (aka weak beer not worth the calories), and want a descent abbey session, then pick some up. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thirstyrabbit (1490) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle. Golden body, medium head. Weak aroma with some light hops and yeast. Slightly sourish taste with sweet malts. Thin body. Bland finish. Quite boring and underwhelming, especially when one considers their main beers which are true classics (this also goes for the Wit, which is perhaps the best witbier that I’ve had). Not worth seeking out.

Pour is pale golden yellow with a tight white head and some retention. Nose is lemon, bubble gum, doughy malt, light dusty cob web. Super aggressive carb, tons of grainy cracker, lighter bubble gum flavor, hints of dusty brett, really light body and a dry finish.
