We wanted to get one more use out of our latest Belgian yeast, which would mean its fourth time around. And we wanted to do something light with a floral, herbal, slightly citrusy hoppiness. In fact, it ended up being a sort of “Belgiany” version of Five Believers, our other extra pale ale. And as luck would have it, there is a song called “4th Time Around” on Bob Dylan’s Blonde On Blonde, which just might be his best. It’s the same album that inspired the name for Five Believers. Of course, none of this is a coincidence.
