Notes/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 and Grains: pale, wheat, and munich, rolled wheat
Hops: hallertauer mittlefruh
Yeast: french saison

Got this one on tap at the brewery. I walked there from my house. I love living in Portland!

There wasn't a lot of head on it -- foamy and low and it dissipated pretty quickly. The appearance is great: very pale, cloudy (opaque) yellow/straw colored.

The smell is bright, fresh, lemony, spicy… flavors of lemony, spices like coriander, and straw to match the appearance. It's a little bit soapy.

The flavor matches, with a little funkiness from the hops. There's some sweetness in the body but it finishes fairly dry.

I'm a pretty big fan. I wish this was more available in standard 12oz bottles. This is a great spring/summer beer.

Serving type: on-tap

750ml capped bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a huge, foamy 4 finger white head with low retention. Beer is a clear pale yellow. Lacing is sparse and spotty with little stick. A bit messy but Ok for the style.

Nose is coriander, flower, peppercorn, cane sugar, and a touch of lemon and citrus. Aromatic and clean. Real nice.

Opens citrus, cane sugar, lemon and coriander. Some soapiness, wheat and more cane sugar sweetness in the middle. Ends with a touch of spice, lemon rind, and more peppercorn. Sweet and slightly spicy aftertaste. Nice.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and crisp and aggressive going down. Finishes slightly dry with a filmy, sticky aftertaste. Really drinkable.

A real nice, drinkable saison overall. Nothing really stands out here but this is certainly a perfect beer to pair with a nice steak or lobster tail!
