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

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Hazy gold pour with an amber core and a huge, fluffy to chunky off white head. Aroma is full of cereal, some toast, hay, tart stone fruit, tart apples, slightly funky, earthy grass, tart wheat, spicy and floral hops and spicy and floral hops. Flavor is cereal, floury grain a little toast and bready up front, some light fruity tartness, wet limestone mineral/funkiness, a hint of tart wheat and very light floral, grassy hops to the finish. Light body with a neutral to off dry and slightly crisp feel and light, somewhat blanketing and soft carbonation. Really good stuff overall, very quaffable, I think it could probably stand a bit more flavor and still be table beer eligible, some more carbonation wouldnt hurt either, but it is pretty damn good as is.

Scopey (13006) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle thanks to LKS. It pours clear pale gold with thick, foamy white head. The aroma is sweet, white bread, straw, toasty grain, soapy citrus, fragrant and icing sugar. The taste is crisp, dry, bitter - sweet, white bread, lemony sherbet, very soapy, fairy liquid, straw and plenty of floral action, pear and melon with a dry, soapy finish. Medium body and high, foamy carbonation, a bit too sweet and carbonated. Fair.

SlovakSniper (5267) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2016
Grosse tte blanche qui ne semble pas vouloir mourir. Corps jaune trouble. Nez dherbes, de th, de fleurs, de paille, de bl et de petite vanille. Saveurs qui abondent dans le mme sens. Rien nest compliqu ici. Tout coule comme de leau de roche. En bouche, le corps moyen-faible montre une texture lgre et un ptillement assez convaincu. En finale, le bl et les levures exhibent leur talent respectif. Si facile boire mais loin du facteur wow.
