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

Tap at Salon piva. Aroma is really promising with pineapple, exotic fruits, light to moderate funk. Very thin taste which doesnot live up to the aroma. Watery.

April 12th, 2014 - Another of Upright Brewing’s integer beers, the Four is slight and svelte and sweet. With just the lightest tan, it has more yellow than orange in its hazy body, and a crop of foam to delight and impress the easily amused. Light and wheat, the smell is well suited for a spring day, and appears to be accented with bergamot and freshly zested Meyer lemons. The taste is light and delicate, catching most of my attention with the tangy dimension. A bit later there’s a nice acidity, backed by a dry and wonderfully savory wheat tone that powerfully pushes a fresh cracked wheat flavor. The medium-short aftertaste offers one last dry burst of grain, and then evaporates, prepping me for another welcome sip.

Draft at Slow Boat Tavern in Seattle. Hazy lemon and gold, thick foam. Bright yeasty aroma, very clean, tasty yeast body. Mild banana, good sweet clean saison. Not complex but nice.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 3, 2016
This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a semi-hazy to light transparent semi-burnt orange color to it. A one finger white foamy head dissipated within about thirty seconds leaving some messy lacing sticking and then sliding here and there. The smell started off with some sweet grassy to citrus dryness. Light wheat strains in as it warms. The taste was mainly sweet with a light bitterness sticking in there. Sticky sweet citrusy aftertaste leads into a semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs smooth enough to allow sweet grassy/citrus combination sticking slightly on my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good saison that I would have again.

An okay saison, though not much to separate it from competitors. Light citrus with a nice Belgian spice aroma.
