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

brokensail (14558) - San Leandro, California, USA - JAN 23, 2011
A: The pour is pale straw in color with a big, fluffy, white head that slowly dies down but clings to the glass. S: There are some decently spicy esters to open up, but that quickly gives way to a more wild character. Lots of grass and lemon, particularly lemon zest. Quite a bit of lactobacillus notes to it. T: This is surprisingly tart, mostly from lemon zest and lemon juice type of lactic flavors. Grassy hops and a very slight bitterness to the beer. Just a bit of pale cracker malts as the base. This is very dry, almost always good. M: The body is light to medium, appropriate for a table beer. Quite high in terms of carbonation with a drying finish. D: I quite liked this. Surprisingly strong in terms of the lactic traits, but I enjoy that. Quite complex and interesting for a "table" beer.

Hazy blonde, aroma is a touch yeasty w pale malt signature. Light bodied, refreshing with an unbuttered popcorn note. This is the refreshing farmer’s saison.

bhensonb (13228) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Capped 750 from Malt & Vine. Pours lightly hazy gold with creamy white head. Aroma is mostly sour and citric. Second shot gets some funk as the head melts away. Med body at least. Flavor is a little tart, a little citrus, some gummy funk. Very dry. Not getting the nobility of the hop, but that’s ok. Tastes great.
