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."

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.
