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

750mL bottle to pils glass Aroma of lemon, wheat, yeast, and apple. Cloudy yellow with a large bubbly head which reduces quicky. Taste is slightly sour and bitter with reminiscence of grapes. A little creamy with little effervescence.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2014
On tap at the Knick. Mild funky nose, a little tart, with orange blossom, lactic acid, and some barnyard funk. Mild hazy light yellow-amber with creamy white lacing head. Medium body with medium-light carbonation. Very mild saison. Some coriander and wheat. Not very strong flavors but very pleasant. Watery finish and after, refreshing.

(Tap) astringent and funky. But it’s still pretty refreshing even though I don’t like it much.

tectactoe (2302) - Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle: Semi-clear golden body with bubble streams rising all around, leading up to a huge, volatile, chunky eggshell cap. Aroma packed with light florals, faint toffee, characteristic Belgian yeast, bread, a hint of spices that are hard to discern (might just be from the yeast), hay, & a moderate farmhouse twinge. Zesty, grassy flavor with a nice bite of mildly bitter flower stems & leaves. More dry hay, leading way to that farmhouse dryness in the finish. Pale malts abound, not getting the mild toffee I was picking up on the nose. Bread, yeast, & earthy leaves in the finish. Dry, thin, effervescent body. A nice saison.

dmac (4208) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Love this one. Hazy golden-yellow with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma is sour, slight pepper, dry grains, lemon. Flavor is great, lemons, sourness, slight pepper, sweet fruit notesin the middle. Palate is medium, with average carbonation and loads of heat. Awesome.

maxwelldeux (3801) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellowish color with a fairly large white head on there. Nose has some great floral and fresh elements, with a great barnyard funk to it. Taste is light and fresh, with some sourness coming through to really freshen it up.

"Hmmm, and herbal, tart wheat beer. Interesting. What stood out a little here was actually the body, though it was solid all around. Not sure about the hefty bottle price, but nice on tap."

I liked it fine. Flavorful four percenter. Got btl on sale for cheap so not sure of age but this was very fine. Super carbed. Some tart. A little vague ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at The Alibi Room, Vancouver. Pours a cloudy straw colour with a white head. Aroma is light a light pepper yeastiness... Light body, medium carbonation. There's light candy, grass, corn, lemon... It's thin and pretty dull. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
