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 mittelfrh

Martinus (4569) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2013
Pale golden colour, dissipating white head. Aroma of hops, wheat, malt and yeast. Light hoppy flavour, hay and malts. Quite creamy body, finish hay, wheat and malts. Quite smooth and balanced brew.
(From 75cL bottle @ ZZT VIIIb, Oirschot 2013. Thanks for sharing, ansjelaah!)

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2010
Spicy, floral and grassy aroma features the hops with some underlying tropical fruits and a slightly tart edge. Lightly hazy golden body is topped by a fizzy white head that recedes fairly quickly to a thin but lasting cover with some sticky lace. Flavour is perhaps not as bright as the aroma suggests instead featuring fresh-mowed grass, wet hay and earthy notes to complement the tart fruitiness. Some cereal malt character in the aftertaste. Medium light body with pleasantly strong effervescence that prickles the front of the tongue. Eminently drinkable. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in May 2010.

Homer321 (4515) - Melboring, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2013
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.

Bulk_Carrier (4498) - Lake Champlain, 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.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Pale, golden-straw colored body. Large, fluffy, creamy head. Good retention as the head slowly crept down the sides. Nice coating of lacing. S: Wheat, hay, lemon zest, light pepper, and a touch of tart barnyard funk. T: The presence of wheat is undeniable. Nice lemon blast. Less peppery than the nose. Good, manageable funk. Slightly tart in the finish. M: Smooth, ideal weight in the body. Carbonation is spot on. The finish is nice and satisfying. O: While there was nothing "stellar" about the aroma or the flavor profile, this was a very enjoyable brew. Upright describes it as their "table" saison... I think thats the perfect description. At 4.5% and pleasant from start to finish, this is the kind of saison you need a case of at all times so you can crack one every night with dinner.

maxwelldeux (4372) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellowish color with a fairly large white head on there. Nose has some great floral and fresh elements, with a great barnyard funk to it. Taste is light and fresh, with some sourness coming through to really freshen it up.

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

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2014
murky hay, fizzy white head with good lacing. Cereal and light corn nose, smacks due to the caramel. Heavy dusty grain flavor, tons of wheat mid with too much sweetness finish, syrupy full at the end.
