Systems FourSystems Four
Notes: Collaboration with Widowmaker Brewing, Fidens Brewing Co. & Mortalis Brewing Co.

Systems Four starts off with a grist with 4 grains: flaked wheat, flaked oats, golden naked oats, and base malt before a Citra and Mosaic T90 and Incognito whirlpool. A systematically monster dry hop follows with EQ’s Energy Treatment using 4 of our favorite hops: Strata, Citra, Mosaic, and Galaxy.

Pouring hazy yellow with aromatic pops of pineapple, assorted citrus, and crushed blueberry you’ll notice flavors of papaya, mango, tropical gummy bears, sticky green, and passionfruit exploding into a creamy, dank, and thick popsicle finish lined with #EQjuice making this beer systematically delicious.

Excellent concept and hop profile.
Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a 4F head.

Excellent aroma: sweet fragrant, passion fruit. Semi viscous MF.
The taste doesn’t match the intense flavor in the aroma. Tropical fruits, tangy, but no standout fruit flavors.

The finish is too tart and hoppy.

Do I like it? It’s not balanced. It would be a far better beer if the taste had more pronounced fruit flavors and the finish had less of an edge.

The concept is excellent- especially the hop profile. But the beer fails to deliver the richer flavors. Tweak the recipe, por favor.

Seeing this one at my local store got me excited, after really enjoying most of the EQ stuff I've had along with the few from Fidens & Mortalis I was more than ready to dive into this one sooner than later. Poured out as a nice hazy yellow color, nice big fluffy white head on top. Big fruity hop aroma, the taste follows the nose with a subtle bitterness in the finish. The feel of the beer is smooth, creamy, very drinkable. Overall, I found this one to be really enjoyable... not that I had any doubts.

A: The beer is very hazy murky brownish yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a thin collar around the edge and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of passion fruit and papaya are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional notes of gooseberry and lime. Little to no bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The appearance of this beer might not look very appetizing but it packs in lots of interesting aromas and flavors from the hops.

Poured from a can dated 7/20/22. Very hazy muted yellow color. Very nice ripe tropical fruit smell with a slight hop dank. A little boozy heat that quickly gives way to citrusy tartness. Very nice smooth mouthfeel with very fine carbonation. This four way collaboration I like a little more than their “Four Fours “ four way collaboration!

A - Opaque medium to dark medium golden orange tan color with dense, soapy white lacing.

S - Tropical fruit aroma, peach, passionfruit, and citrus. Overall aroma is very juicy.

T - Flavor isn't as juicy as what the nose suggest. There is a healthy amount of peach, passion fruit, citrus, some light berry buried underneath with a little bit of sweet grapefruit, then ends with a light piney bitterness. Overall, finishes balanced to a little bit more towards the sweeter side.

M - Coats the mouth and creates a cotton-like sensation, very dry on the back of the tongue, and some watering towards the front of the mouth. Body is thick with some slight frothiness around the edges.

O - Definitely a rock solid beer. Worth checking out.
