Notes/Commercial Description:
"Seven is our most aromatic beer. The brewery's saison yeast is fully expressed in the aroma with lots of fruitiness while the hops provide light spice notes. The beer has some heft mid-palette but finishes dry with a lightly lingering bitterness. Seven is satisfying on its own but pairs great with a variety of typically fragrant cuisines such as Thai or Indian."

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle. Very hazy orange-yellow with a large foamy lasting white head. (This one got away from me on the pour!.) Aroma of peach, bread, coriander, funkiness and yeast. Very strong. Taste is tart with lingering sweetness and a twist of lemon. - great! Some very mild bitterness on the finish...just enough to add a touch of dryness. Mouthfeel is a little sticky after the initial rush of carbonation...not what I expected. I have had some really good beers over the last year...Blind Pig, Anchorage offerings, and others. This one is also very good. A real pleasure and worth every penny.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Tasted 6 June 2014.

Pours clear golden. Massive dense fluffy head, 3+ fingers. Excellent retention and boatloads of lacing. Fantastic, and demonstrative of how fine-looking saisons can be.

Smell is floral, but dense floral. It's on the simple side, and that one element is good, but not amazing. A lot of Upright's beers smell like this - like someone juiced flower petals. It's pithy and robust, despite being sort of high-in-the-nose aromatic.

Taste has those same floral notes, but a little sharpness. Pretty basic, lacking the depth, variety , or subtlety I want. It's fine.

Feel is okay. Medium-bodied, but definitely on the flat side.

A decent saison. I find that in general, Upright's takes on the style don't completely agree with me, as they all have a heavy flower character that dominates more than I'd like. Perhaps it's their yeast strain, perhaps their choice of ingredients. I'm still waiting to be wowed by them.

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

Pours a huge, continually frothing 4 finger white head with excellent retention. Beer is a pale, clear goldenrod. Lacing is thick and patchy with great stick. Awesome!

Nose is hugely aromatic. Notes of lemon rind, yogurt, peppercorn, spice, cane sugar and yeast. Very appetizing.

Opens lemon, cane sugar, yeast, coriander and spice. Light tartness in the middle with a foamy body and a sweet cane sugar backbone. Ends crisp, peppery and slightly floral. Same aftertaste. Nicely complex. A very good beer.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down crisp and aggressive with a relatively clean finish and slightly lingering aftertaste. Very drinkable.

This is possibly the best of the series. Intensely aromatic with great balance and an excellent body. Definitely worth having.
