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

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2010 My Bottom Line:
Minty hops, straw-like wheat and subtle herbs swirl into a lightly tart finish for a quenching, humble Saison.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the cloudy blond.
-The body is very light and thus very drinkable.
-Citrusy fruitiness also increases drinkability.
-Every flavor is well integrated, yet few stand out.
