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

Bottle at home. Pour is hazy lemon juice with a frothy, long-lasting white head and great lacing. Lemon peel, citrus, herbal, medicinal, grass, biscuit, and floral hops in the aroma. Taste is herbal, floral, yeasty, light pepper, vanilla, citrus, grass, lemon, and straw with a crisp, dry finish. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Seriously tasty beer for such a low ABV, I would love to be able to get this in quantity for hot Summer days. I wish more brewers would do stuff like this.

10-karat, dry-straw, hay-like pour with a massive ivory meringue that climbed defiantly out of the glass. Reminded me of Richard Dreyfuss’ mashed potato recreation of Devil’s Tower in Close Encounters! Loads of lemongrass, yeast, fresh dough, citrus, and a little funky tartness. Refreshing.

Bottle shared by Tooch4321 - Pours straw yellow with a thin white head. Nose is soapy, with perfume, flowers, yeast, and some light herbal hopping. Light dry malt backbone. Taste is much the same--soapy and dry with a nice herbal hoppiness. Nice carbonation, smooth--solid stuff.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours extremely hazy golden amber color with a 3 finger foamy and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, straw, grass, light funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, bread, pepper, clove, grass, straw, light funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, wheat, bread, pepper, clove, grass, straw, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good flavor robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and prickly mouthfeel that is great. Zero alcohol warming present after the finish as expected for 4.5%. Overall this is an excellent session saison style. All around great balance, complexity, and robustness of flavors for 4.5%; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle: Soft yellow with plenty of haze. Obnoxiously large frothy head that takes what seems like forever to subside. Gentle nose is light and refreshing. Good amount of balance between the florals, earthy and herbal tones, as well as yeast. Soft mouthful for the style, with a lively finish. Elements of grain, florals, and yeast. Really enjoying the way the yeast comes in at the end with a zing. Refreshing.

iowaherkeye (2695) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - FEB 11, 2012
750mL bottle, no date from Best Damn Beer Shop, I think $9.99. Clear golden with a big 2 1/2 finger off-white head, pretty good retention. Tangy lemon nose with a good amount of wheat up front, some hay and light herbal hops and white pepper with some pear and apricot yeast behind. Light toast as it warms. Flavor continues with the moderate lemon twang and hay/wheat. A little cobwebby as well. The finish was semi-dry, sourness peaked at a 4, wheaty with lingering earth. Medium high carbonation with a light body. Good, but my least favorite between the 4-5-6 that I’ve had.

One of my favorite saisons from these guys! Thanks chuckles! Hazy straw gold pour with a fluffy white head and moderate lace. Aroma is lemongrass, hay and a slight twist of lacto. Wish I would have saved this one to drink in the sweltering NC summer heat. Lemons, straw, wheat and some floral notes. Dry tart and refreshing

750ml brown bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a few fingers of bright white foam. Spotty lace. Nose has some citrus, pineapple, bread, wheat. Taste has grains, wheat and bread, mild toast, yeasty, citrus, light fruitiness. Dry finish, lingering yeast notes with a bit of spice, and soft hops with grassy bitterness. Complex and satisfying for a low abv beer, easy to drink.

On tap at Naja’s. Hazy light yellow pour with a thin white head. Herbal, wheaty, Belgian yeast and citrus tart aroma. Light crisp malt, tart, herbal and citrus hops in the taste. So good.

Damico (2649) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours super bubbly beautiful deep golden with a huge bubbly white head! Aroma is soft and sweet spring like yeast not white floral or fruity but unique and pleasant. Flavors are lighter on spice and sweetness with no funk at all. The body is quite bubbly.
