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 from a trade with 5000. Pours cloudy straw color with white head. Grassy, floral hop aroma with doughy yeast. Wheat is apparent in the flavor. Grassy and bready with a sllight tartness. A little dry. Light body with moderate carbonation. I could drink this all day long. Thanks Andre.

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 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.

Steve_0 (3016) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2012
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.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a good amount of head. Light spicy malty flavor with a quick finish.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle from riversideAK. Brew poured a hazed yellow with a bubbly white head. Nose was very floral with hints of clove, lemon grass, bubble gum. Very light on the palate, I bet this is killer when paired with the right food.

BOLTZ7555 (2879) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 14, 2013
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.

tectactoe (2851) - 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.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Excellent saison overall, lighter bodied and dry, excellent session beer. The hops pull a nice citrus and spicy character, hoppy for a saison. Soft wheat note up front, lots of pepper from the French Saison yeast in the finish.

Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Lemon, spicy bready yeast, and a little funk. Pretty good.
