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

Hazy straw hued under a thin white cap. Nose has some Belgian dusty hay with just a little touch of hoppy orange zest. Smooth flavor featuring some more of that orange note, with a clean Belgian barn malt and light hay flavors, some wheat, and a clean Belgian wheat finish.

Inbreak (2003) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2014
17.05.2014, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Huge slightly fizzy longlasting head. Aroma is loaded with Co2 stinging in the nose, followed by citrus, hay, yeast, flowers, citrus peel, hints of grain. Taste is slightly dry, hay, yeast, citrus, flowers, citrus peel, grass, leafs. Medium bitterness, dry mouthfeel, very high carbonation. Fair enough, would probably be a lot better if it hadn’t been for the high carbonation.

Draught from proletariat. Golden pour. White head. Bit of a yeasty funk. Weird grainy note that hurt this one.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2014
murky hay, fizzy white head with good lacing. Cereal and light corn nose, smacks due to the caramel. Heavy dusty grain flavor, tons of wheat mid with too much sweetness finish, syrupy full at the end.

Pours a hazy gold. Very light in all respects, but very well balanced. Could use a little more saison flavor.

harrymel (1496) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Bottled: unk Pours a cloudy light yellow with a tan hue. There is a two finger white cap that falls to a thick sheet of the same leaving mass lace. Smells of herbs, lemon, grain, grass, asparagus, a touch of diacetyl and belgian yeast character. Flavor is delicate with some grain, some soft floral notes, some pepper and light grass. Medium bodied with a moderately hi, prickly carb and a dry finish. Nice beer.
