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

Sampled at ESBLS. Hazed white golden with a white head. A nice fruity saison. Floral notes and even some lime. This is a delicate beer and an understated one. Nicely done.

Bardzo lekkie piwo z Portland. Złocista barwa, z gęstą białą pianą. Zapach zbożowy, świeży, dość specyficzny, ale przyjemny. W smaku lekko słodkawe, słodowe, nieco wodniste. Niskie wysycenie sprawiało, że piwo zdawało się momentami dość mdłe. Ogólnie jednak zrobiło na mnie pozytywne wrażenie.

Erzengel (5363) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 2, 2015
Many thanks for ThirstyBird for sharing. Floral nose. The beer starts sweetish, fruity. Slightly grainy. Sweetish-neutral aftertaste, slightly bitter. Fruity, easy to drink, fresh-sweetish with slightly tartness. Dusty but nice.

A very nice light beer, a little tart towards the finish, herbal and floral notes really dominate, but sometimes tastes a bit like a lager.

nimbleprop (5798) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 28, 2015
750ml bottle pours a lightly hazy gold with lots of frothy white head. Nose has an interesting mix of pilsener malt, grass and herbs, lemon, soapy, straw, some perfume. Flavor has a bit more sweetness, malty but honey too, grassy, wheat, perfume, lemon, mild pepper, some chalky notes. Finishes fairly watery.

Bottle. Pours light yellow, with a rocky head. Aroma is yeast, with oak and lemony citrus. Full body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is tart with yeast, citrus and notes of peach, giving a lingering tart finish.
