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

JoeMcPhee (8189) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
Pale yellow-golden pour. Hazy/cloudy with a tight white head. The aroma is a little bit grassy and grainy. Moderately sweet wheaty flavour with a touch of bright lemony character. A little bit of white Mmpepper. Drinks a little green, despite the potential in this glass.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle from Brewery Creek. A lemony and Bretty aroma greets you. Yellow golden body with lots of soapy head. A lemon and wheat tartness. Lacey. Above average carbonation. A good drinker though a tongue burner with the Thai spice. As a saison, well its tart.

GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 7, 2012
750mL thanks to BrainLayer. Pours a full hazed straw. Soapy, large foam. Suddy retention. Nose is puppy breath- cleans up after sitting out for a bit. Gains pineapple, lemon, dough. Still some celery and dog. Taste is grassy, lemon soapy, very bubbly with some acrid bitterness. Not quite complete. More like a work in progress. Sharp oil, vitamin C, some medicinal sharpness in the palate. Still refreshing, but not close to be being a world class saison. As it warms, more pineapple and white peach throughout. Small tartness, biscuit, lemon, dough. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2010
draft. unfiltered. approach is lightly sweet, mildly tart, lightly acidic (lacitc/malo?). medium-high attenuation gives it moderate dryness. spice character is subdued: mild soap, mildly sweet biscuit grains, light wheat. overall enjoyable but somewhat dull and quiet. might have to revisit the bottle-conditioned version.

Bottle thanks to chad. Pours with a huge, rocky white head and a murky golden body. Aroma of spice, coriander, dryness, fruit, wheat, lemon. Taste is orange, tea, light umami, and a tartness. Somewhat spicy. Very effervescent.

Draught Lemon yellow, hazy beer; fast gone white head. Spicy, yeasty, meaty esters, citruspeel, coriander. Lemon, coriander-ish, certainly held in check. Very light, thinnish with some wheatslickness. Light, not overspiced wit-saison.
