On tap at The Growler Guys, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of rose petals, followed by Belgian yeast. Flavour brings out a shit ton of rose petals, with a very floral quality. Not really getting anything else. Dominated by the rose. Rather monolithic stuff. It’s solid, but nothing more than good.

On tap @ the brewery, RBSG. Orange gold, white head. Bright, very tart, unripened berries and plum skins, acetic sourness, quenching. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Tap @ Upright... Poured hazy, vibrant pastel yellow with a thin, lacy white head. Aroma has some yeast funk, vinous soaked oak, and herbal earthy tones. Tasted of earthy spices, oak, wild yeast, rose water bitters, light fruits, stone fruits, and a good bit of lemon zest. Some tartness but faint and not very acidic or in your face with sourness. The yeast spice and funk was a highlight that added depth to this already complex beer. douglas88 (9420) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 3, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a medium white head. A interesting nose with herbal notes, certainly some rose, a bit of funkiness. The flavor is pretty mellow, low to no sourness, fizzy, rose, clear earthy herbal notes. Grainy and very drinkable. brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 12, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2011 Pours a pale yellow color with a white head. Funky aroma with a light wine aroma. Some lemon, a bit of floral scent, strangely. Very estery, overall. Lightly sour with some lemon and citrus peel. Very light oak and wine flavors. Not a huge fan of this, unfortunately. I really liked the regular Four.

Trade growler from DA. Poured a hazy reddish orange. Aroma was very interesting with some herbal and tart characteristics. Some oak and rose petals were present. At first it was very very weird but the more I drank, the more it grew on me. mattdev (74) - Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Pours a slightly hazey orange with a non-existant head. Much different than the typical Four. Aroma has some funk, light citrus, slightly vinous with some grapefruit. Taste is a bit oxidized, probably because the firkin was tapped a few days ago. Light rose, minimal hop, and more citrus flavor. Little to no malt sweetness. FInishes a little puckery, but smooth and creamy. SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Draught at the brewery. Hazier than the regular four. The aroma is tart and vinous with some wood, spices and flowers. The flavor is tart with a light grainy sweetness, some flowers, and sour peaches. Light and crisp body. Nice light tartness from the barrel, and a good mix of flavors, though not completely together.
