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.

April 26, 2011 - 750ml bottle at Volo shared with blankboy. Hazy amber-gold with a diminishing creamy/frothy white head. Dry aroma, very fruity, pungently tart apricot, with some green oak tannin. Taste is a perfect balance of lush mostly ripe fruit and sourness - not OTT sourness, just enough to balance the malt - not much alcohol - really appealing - perfect for a light bodied tart fruit beer, solid carbonation, light acidity, a stinging not grabby finish - so nice.

Hazy gold with a huge carbonated white head that faded quickly. Crisp, somewhat tart and fruity, and a bit yeasty. Light earthiness. Really nice and punchy, refreshing and drinkable.

Bottle shared by 321Jeff. Thanks! The beer is a hazy, straw yellow hue with a couple inches of thick, white head that leaves a thick sheet of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings lemons, spice, grass, fresh celery. The flavor is refreshing with crisp, zesty carbonation. Light floral and citrus notes are quite enjoyable. The feel is light on the palate. Highly drinkable. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-28-2011

Murky light gold with an ample white head. Herbal, bright aromatics. Light to medium bodied with high carbonation. Lemon zest on grains and herbs. Amazing length for such a light beer.

Poured into a tulip. 3.5 A: Nearly clear golden wheat color. Three fingers of pillowy white head. Retention is good and a little bit of irregular lacing is left. 3.5 S: Lemony and wheaty with grassiness all around. Dry hay, musty rotting wood, and a light floral/vegetal combo. Faint corriander. Finally, something between plastic and sorachi ace hops, but thankfully this isnít very strong. I read some reviews before buying this and the beer Iím smelling doesnít have the spiciness that I read about. Oh well. 2.5 T: The strongest flavor might be the one I hated the most in the nose. The sorachi plastic is back and distracts from the good flavors. Lemon rind, wheat, grass, hay follow. Big herbal character in this. Lightly floral with musty dustiness, rotting wood, and apple orchard. This reminds me of Saison du Buff in a few ways, though this is much better. 3.5 M: Lighter body. Higher level, somewhat spritzy carbonation. Smooth enough. 3.0 D: Iím not a huge fan of this because of the big herbalness and the plastic thing. I think Iím particularly sensitive to these flavors. In any case, this isnít bad, but far from my saison of choice. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-08-2012 05:11:47

Bottle shared with ken and vi in Vancouver. Pours a light hazy orange amber with white fizzy lacing. Aroma is tart apricot, yeast and wheat. Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated medium to thin with notes of tart fruit, apricot and tangerine, yeast and wheat.

Pour at Scottís saison tasting, pout out of bottle is slightly hazy pale yellow with thin white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, vanilla, oak, some earth, grass and spice notes as well. Taste is a nice mix of lemon, biscuit and vanilla, hints of earth, grass and tart fruits, finishing fairly sweet with a nice dry finish, very drinkable.

jgb9348 (5724) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a very thin, faint white head. Aroma of strong yeast, curacao, coriander seed, candy sugar, alcohol (even only at 4.5 itís noticeable) and a nice medicinal scent. Light-bodied; Sharp sour flavour at first with a good brett flavour at first then fading to a short wheatiness and more of a funky characteristic of yeast, sour grapes, lemons and sugars. Aftertaste is quite complex with a bunch of yeast qualities tucked in to the sourish brett and light wheat and sweetness that is shown at first. Overall, a nice and rather interesting beer that shows well. Low in alcohol means you can drink a lot or the whole of a bottle, but the complexity makes you want to take just one more sip. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Olive Tree Market Place in San Diego, California on 05-May-2012 for US$10.99 sampled at home in Washington on 03-July-2012.

Pale yellow-golden pour. Hazy/cloudy with a tight white head. The aroma is a little bit grassy and grainy. Moderately sweet wheaty flavour with a touch of bright lemony character. A little bit of white Mmpepper. Drinks a little green, despite the potential in this glass.
