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

I loved this. Hazy golden yellow color with a frothy head. Aroma has some herbs, yeast, grain, some spice and a hint of citrus. Flavor is great. Smooth, sweet, nice and spicy, good full body, a little dry too, a hint of sweetness, citrus and light bitterness to complement the spice and sweetness. Awesome.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2011 Courtesy of Pailhead. Hazy golden, huge rocky white head, sticks around a while. Floral, dusty, cereal, light citrus, lemon, lacto. Flavor falls a little bit short of aroma, dusty malt up front, light lacto, floral, citrus, dries out nice through the finish. Billowy mouthfeel, silky. Great session brew.

Bottle shared by 321Jeff. Thanks! The beer is a hazy, straw yellow hue with a couple inches of thick, white head that leaves a thick sheet of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings lemons, spice, grass, fresh celery. The flavor is refreshing with crisp, zesty carbonation. Light floral and citrus notes are quite enjoyable. The feel is light on the palate. Highly drinkable. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-28-2011

Draft at brewery, Portland. Pours a cloudy medium golden straw. Aroma has a slight funky yeastiness, maybe some fruit as well. Lovely lightness to aroma. Body incredibly light on the tongue, sublime and direct, finish abrupt and crisp. Brilliant in any situation, but on tap at the brewery is the pinnacle of freshness.

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. Grate pils malt with a touch of pepper in the whiffer. Hazy light yellow. Large white head. Slightly tart, crisp, refreshing. Pleasant yeast phenols with pepper and a drying finish. Wow. This is light Saison DuPont table beer. Like avril. But fresh n good.

On tap at the blind tiger. Hazy orangish yellow. Plenty of unsalted wheat and very rustic. A bit of lemony freshness on the tongue. Finish is long with a dry pepper finish.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2010 courtesy of googzoid. Pours hazy golden straw, thin white head. Aroma nice saison yeast, wheat, pale malts and wodnerful citrus. Flavors, very light palate, silky wheat, mild bitterness, fizzy carbonation, herbal/lemon, grassy mouthfeel. Wonderful yeast finish. Bottle refers to the beer as ’bière de table’ which is a better description than a saison. Reminded me a lot of the light beer my parents would let us have at dinner when we were kids.

Plusieurs verres de 12 oz, à la brasserie. Version originale et versions avec dry-hopping. L’évaluation est pour la version originale. Arômes de levure légèrement épicée, de houblon floral et de blé cru. Robe blonde très pâle et trouble, légère mousse et effervescence assez active. En bouche, la bière se présente comme un hybride entre une wit (sans les épices) et une saison, avec une belle signature de levure épicée et des céréales très proéminentes. Le houblon, herbacé et floral est également présent. Finale très sèche et légèrement amère. Très rafraîchissant.
