3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma feels really fresh, almost mint-like. Taste is citrusy/acid and tart with a hot chili aftertaste. I didn’t think it was over the top, though. It made for a fun drink, one that I would only consume in small quantities (4oz or so). Body is light and it is quenching to some extent. Overall it might have been a little too pepper heavy but I still enjoyed it more than the #5 and #6.

750 ml bottle shared with Tom and chums. Pours an opaque beige-yellow with a short lived white head. Aroma is wheat, dry, tropical fruit and lemon. Flavor is wheat, oranges, tropical fruits, lemon. Finish is...peppers. Hot peppers. As in, chilis. Hot. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Spicy, but flavorful. Most enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Hazy yellow with a low white head and some lacing. Aroma is yeasty with mint notes, lemony and light spicy notes. Taste is lemony and yeasty at first with light fruity notes, but when the peppers are in there and take all over the place. Light body. Good carbonation. Hot mouthfeel, too hot for my liking in fact. I strongly prefer the regular version of the Four. Listed as a Sour Ale? Weird.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from mathieuc, thanks a lot! Pour is hazy blond with white head and little lacing. Aroma of chilli, wheat, funk. Taste has funk, wheat but then the chilli takes the spot without being overwhelming, light oak and little acidity. Low body and medium carb. Strange combination between a saison and chillies. It was not bad actually.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750, capped. Pours a cloudy medium gold with a loose white head. Light stringy lace. Big tart tangy red/green pepper nose, along with some nice balsamic notes. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Balsamic, peppers, dandelions, and a little kick of heat on the mid palate. Mild clinging soft heat on the finish. Very nice beer. One of the better pepper beers around for sure.

Had this one at OL in Walnut Creek, CA. Good beer, but I’m not a fan of the chili peppers in this one.

Bottle - Sour funk, chili, lemon and oak. Cloudy orange with no head. Light refreshing, sour but nicely balanced. Pepper heat is there a very nice contrast. I really like this.
