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

KyotoLefty (6273) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 26, 2011
750 ml bottle. Nice, clean citrus hops aroma, light pils malt, fruity, pepper. Deep golden, quite clear. With a medium, fine, dense head. Light malt flavor, grapefruit, dust, quite dry, light body, prickly carbonation, minerals--a bit too much, sulfur? Light sweetness, and not too bitter either. Nice, though maybe not quite great, and very sessionable and refreshing.

(750ml bottle from Bruery Provisions). Pours a cloudy golden color with chunky white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is lemon, wheat and some pepper/spice. Taste is sweet with a little sour. Hmmm. Maybe an infection? Yet, it is tasty.m. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Good.

This pours a golden color with a huge fluffy head on top. Great retention with lots of lacing sliding along the sides of the glass after each sip. This is herbal and floral in the aroma with light spice notes, hay, yeast, and low traces of fruit. Nice. Slightly tart flavors of lemon, wheat grain, and herbs. There really isn’t much funk here. Somewhat dry but not incredibly so. The aroma seems more complex than the flavor but this is still good stuff. It does come across as a bit basic, but I’d much rather have it that way than some of the over-spiced, cloying, higher abv Saisons that tend to be out there. This is certainly clean and refreshing, and in fact, I enjoyed it quite a bit after a little yard work on a hot afternoon.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2011
750 ml bottle picked up in Portland. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin and soap sudsy looking head. Aromas are understated, but reveal sour, a little barnyard, honey and lemon. Flavor is just as understated and it takes a second or two to adjust to something mellow, but once I’m there, this is very nice. It sits almost without flavor for just a second after the sip, but then the lemon and funk picks up and washes over the palate before fading to a slightly tart finish. I like this, but wish it were just a touch more aggressive.

Sammy (8520) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle from Brewery Creek. A lemony and Bretty aroma greets you. Yellow golden body with lots of soapy head. A lemon and wheat tartness. Lacey. Above average carbonation. A good drinker though a tongue burner with the Thai spice. As a saison, well its tart.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Light straw gold, nice bright white head... The aroma is awesome, smells like a saison lambic, sweet peaches, musky... The taste is a little boring, light and musky, but watery... Nice summer drink but missed the mark on potential greatness

Bottled. Hazy orangeish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, mild earth and some herbal notes. Flavour is wood, fruits, earth and some tart notes. Pleasant, balanced and malty aftertaste.

TBone (12538) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2011
Bottled 750ml (PBF)
Golden, slighlty hazy color, small white head. Hayish, peppery, fruity aroma. Light bodied. Light grassy flavor, fruity flavors, fizzy carbonation (!). Probably good with food but as a session beer just too lame.

I loved this. Hazy golden yellow color with a frothy head. Aroma has some herbs, yeast, grain, some spice and a hint of citrus. Flavor is great. Smooth, sweet, nice and spicy, good full body, a little dry too, a hint of sweetness, citrus and light bitterness to complement the spice and sweetness. Awesome.
