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

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2010
750ml from the first bottled batch. Pouring initially clear, the golden colored body is increasingly cloudy with each careful pour. Tiny bubbles fervently effervesce, feeding a moderate, slowly receding head of snow white foam from beneath. Sudsy globules of lacing try their best to cling to the glass, though they ultimately liquefy and merge back into the body below. The nose is pretty simple, yet intriguing, showing a base of clean grain that has soured slightly with some lactic acidity, hinting at lemongrass, sweet flowers, and a soft, balancing spiciness. Flavors are right in line, showing perhaps a bit more lemony acidity than the nose foreshadows, lightly sweet wheat grain laying the baseline. Green grass and floral spices lend depth, though don’t particularly dazzle on their own. There is again a lactic connotation throughout. The palate is light and lively, drinking incredibly easy and balanced well between malted wheat sweetness and a semi-dry, crisp finish. Very nice table beer. It’s relative neutrality and soft acidity make it an excellent palate cleanser between courses.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy, light amber color with a well sustained white head. Nice light florals in the nose along with some yeast and hay notes. The flavor doesn’t disappoint with a light citrus note, soft florals, hay, and dusty yeast notes. Complex and flavorful. Light body with high carbonation and a spritzy mouthfeel. One of the better saisons I’ve had lately.

750mL Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Sean! This beer is for me. God’s water. Not my first Upright beer, but close, as it’s my first Upright bottle. Clean, mineral and light malt aroma. Tangy, fresh, and grassy upfront. The emergent quality of this reminds me of the best, freshest chevre, with delightful tingling clean herbal qualities. It feels like delicious, thirst slaking medicine. Very, very good table beer. Wish I could drink this every day.

tectactoe (3125) - 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.
