Availability: Year-round

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."

Malts: organic pale, pilsener, organic munich
Hops: magnum, mt.rainier, hallertauer mittelfrüh, liberty

A- Murky hues of gold, copper and burnt leaves coalesce in a tulip shaped glass. A thick pillow of off-white head settles slowly to a nice ringlet.

S- Grass, pineapple, fresh bread, slight funk. Light spice from the hops. Intoxicating really.

T- Cured lemon and bread with a bit of spice and tropical fruits. Make that dried pineapple. Some smooth grain and grass for sure.

M- Medium body with great carbonation. Dry, tart finish that leaves my mouth watering for the next sip.

D- Very high. I want it on tap in the house. A beer this thirst quenching would make house work much more pleasant. Upright really hit the nail on the head with this one.

This one has been in my cellar for about two years and I thought it might be a good opportunity to break it open on a cool summer day after running around the house powerwashing and fixing stuff.

A: Pours a Massive frothy white head leaving sticky lacing. There is some mild white sediment that settles on the bottom of the glass on the first pour.

S: Aroma of sweet lemons, stale drying grass, pale malt, and a mild light funk that reminds me of what a saison should smell like.

T: Overwhelmingly great, tons of pale malt, munich and pilsner malt flavors, making this crisp, light and flavorful. After a few sips, it is very clear that this is extremely well balanced and the light lemony citrus flavors go well with the crisp pilsner malts.

M: Light crisp and with a good body. the malts in this saison are well chosen and I will have to brew a similar beer soon. After finishing off my Cornelius keg of saison that I had been storing for a while, I am ready for a new fresh batch.

O: Overall, probably one of my favorite saisons I have ever had. I enjoyed the other Upright saisons that I had tried before however I do not know if the age really helped this one come to full flavor or subdued the hops. In either case, this was thoroughly enjoyed. Well done Upright.

Thanks to sweemzander for bringing this one to GBM 6.27.11

(A) Brown orange color, almost like a burnt orange. Darkest in the middle and more golden around the edges of the glass. There isn't much head, but the head that is there is pure, clean white.

(S) Smells slightly sour and tart with almost a floral undertone. It's sweet with almost a citric acidity in there.

(T) It's definitely more tart than the nose. The tartness is underlying the entire taste but really brings up the rear. A bit of cherry and white grape go hand in hand with the slight acidic and citric notes. You get a hint of some spices like ginger and/or cardamom even though they were not a part of the brewing.

(M) It IS tart, but it's a refreshingly different tartness. It boosts the crispness of the beer.

(O) This was a really fantastic beer. One of the best saisons I've ever had. Well done. Had a different spin on it than most and I think that really sets this one apart. It's very clean and defined.
