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

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - MAY 5, 2013
75o ml bottle. A very hazy dark blonde beer, with a large, frothy/fizzy, lightly lacing, mostly lasting, white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread, hay), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough), with notes of lemon/lemongrass, hints of banana, pepper and pinepple. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, fizzy carbonation, average finish with almost medium bitterness. Pretty good and sessionable light beer. Pretty fresh aroma, considering my expectations. Not a bad balance. A bit on the thin side and fizzy and head and lacing are not extremely elegant, but those are minor points. Overall good.

Cloudy pale golden pour with thick foamy head. Grassy citrus aroma with yeast. Nice smooth taste of wheat and grass, lemon, and a tart finish. Not too complex, but pleasant and very drinkable.

Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours hazy deep gold with thin white head. The aroma is full with grains, honey, lemon acidity and herb-y spices as well as bits of wheat and yeast. The taste is effervescent across the palate punctuating notes like yeasty spices, lemon, graininess, herbaliness, mild tartness too, wheat and a thin layer of yeastiness. Darn tasty stuff.
