COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Four is truly a light yet flavorful beer. The recipe uses a good portion of wheat and incorporates a sour mash into the process to make it slightly tart and extra refreshing. It has delicate aromas and flavors that span a range of floral, grassy and herbal notes. The finish is extra dry and makes the beer a great beverage to pair with food, especially various cheeses and shellfish.
Malts: organic pale, organic wheat, organic munich
Unmalted: rolled wheat
Hops: hallertauer mittelfrüh

April 12th, 2014 - Another of Upright Brewing’s integer beers, the Four is slight and svelte and sweet. With just the lightest tan, it has more yellow than orange in its hazy body, and a crop of foam to delight and impress the easily amused. Light and wheat, the smell is well suited for a spring day, and appears to be accented with bergamot and freshly zested Meyer lemons. The taste is light and delicate, catching most of my attention with the tangy dimension. A bit later there’s a nice acidity, backed by a dry and wonderfully savory wheat tone that powerfully pushes a fresh cracked wheat flavor. The medium-short aftertaste offers one last dry burst of grain, and then evaporates, prepping me for another welcome sip.
