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

joeneugs (3120) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 29, 2011
Pours yellow with a small white head. The aroma is grassy and lightly spiced with lemon, coriander and wheat. The flavor is tart and very wheaty with a nice hint of citrus peel. Just a bit of lacto and lemony orange before a really nice crisp, bitter finish. The body is light and refreshing. Its kind of like a berliner weisse crossed with a Belgian wit crossed with a Saison. I loved it. Great for pairing with food.

jzzbassman (1508) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - APR 17, 2011
Bottle courtesy of After4ever. Hazy light gold pour, with a tightly whipped white head. Aroma is yeast, tart fruit, and musty hops. Lemon and earthy flavors mix well, making it really appetizing and one your mouth keeps asking for more of. Finishes pleasing and dry. Outstanding!

Tsotsi (178) - Florida, USA - APR 12, 2011
750ml bottle thanks to Scrizz. Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. Nose is citrus especially orange, sour, and a bit of spices. Flavors are sour, nice orange flavor and end with a dry finish. Nice and light to medium body and very refreshing. Great saison.

JohnnyJ (4267) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Bottle. Pale hazy gold pour, with dense white head. Rough biscuity malt, citrus, hay, slightly tart, lemon grass, and pepper. I really like this, complex, light, refreshing, and well made.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2011
750 ml bottle at City Beer Store. Pours a light hazed blonde with a nice lasting bright white head- good lace. Aroma is toasty bread, with big tangerine french saison kick to it- also with a bit of grass that turns a hint lactic. Flavor shows the tart lactic acidity in the end but upfront is still light crackery malts, grassy hops, along with some citrusy yeasty notes. Very dry with a tart lactic kick- easy to drink - great table saison. Nice!

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Banana, clove and esters emerge from the glass. Slightly hazy golden. A bit tart with a bubblegum character. Light body with low carbonation. An interesting approach to a wheat but taste is similar to a belgian pale.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle from riversideAK. Brew poured a hazed yellow with a bubbly white head. Nose was very floral with hints of clove, lemon grass, bubble gum. Very light on the palate, I bet this is killer when paired with the right food.
