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

MrChopin (3220) - 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 (1478) - 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.

Ernest (6148) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with light notes of gum, lemon zest. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly dull, which is sad because this should have had my name all over it...low-ABV saison, Hallertauer hops...on paper that sounds bloody awesome. But this is almost more like an American Wheat than anything...very faint and simple lemony-floral aroma, which might be nice if I didn’t have to struggle to find it. Some beers leap from the glass, this tends to hide in it. In the mouth it starts out reasonably nice, no shortage of malt for the low ABV, but by the finish it’s nearly bland...everything just disappears. No flaws, though, which is good. In a way I’m relieved that it’s mediocre, since it’s vastly overpriced at $13/750mL, but I’m admittedly disappointed because there’s not enough beers of this sort that are repeat-purchase-worthy.
