"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."

FIrst time having this and was quite impressed.

A- Yellow Orange Sunset with a solid 2 fingers of head that hung on forever.

S- CItrus, Malt, hops

T- Orange, Hops, dusty farmhouse yeast.

M- Heavy but fitting

O- Overall, I really liked this. Was a bit sweeter than the typical saison, but the body held it together and the orange and sweetness played nicely off the hops and yeast. Would definitely drink again.

A: Golden wheat and clear, streams of active carbonation percolate up lending their hand to the bone white head. Micro-bubbles veneer the top and cling to the glass forming delicate lacy patterns.

S: Refreshing and approachable offering smells of lemon, minerals, yeasts with bretta and just a hint of fresh cut grass. Spicy notes as well - pepper and possibly cloves, and bright scent of under ripe peaches.

T: Funky yeast and malts of sweet biscuits with lemon rinds and fresh yellow fruits. Taste moves through to minerals and a dry champagne with a hint of white pepper and cloves.

M: Creamy and frothy carbonation fill the mouth with a dry, crisp and clean brew. While the experience is crisp, the mouth feel is viscous enough to hold on the palette after the last sip.

O: A clean and refreshing saison that is very balanced and complex, both in scent and taste. Well worth seeking out and enjoying with a summer meal.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a hazy medium amber color with a full two finger head that bears good retention time before descending to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a perfectly rounded large bump of surface foam. Fluffy cobwebs of lacing stick to the glass.

S- Very fruity aroma brings about notes of mango, papaya and pineapple. Very floral and borderline soapy. Hint of pepper in the back.

T- Flavor is also very fruit-forward but also features some tangy spice. Very drinkable for the ABV. Slightly tart with notes of tangerine, orange and more mango. Turns out to be quite complex as the yeast and spice alternate with the fruit upon each sip.

M- Tight from the medium-high carbonation and sharp from the spice. The body's on the lighter side and is moist.

O- Although I don't favor the more fruit-forward saisons, if I were to choose one to drink, it would definitely be this. Never had anything by Upright before and this has made a great first impression on me. Looking forward to possibly trying more of their beers.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: Pours a translucent amber (not too hazy but not transparent) and leaves several fingers of extremely fluffy white head.

Smell: Citrus, belgian yeast, perhaps some peach and pear in there as well. Interesting aroma, not necessarily mouth-watering but not unappealing.

Taste: Starts with citrus and moves on to a bread-like dough taste along with some lemon and coriander. Finishes nicely with some fruity notes.

Mouth-feel: Medium to high carbonation with a medium body to it. Very smooth.

Overall: A very nice sipping saison. The flavors aren't overwhelming but they compliment each other nicely. Citrusy and doughy with little funk. I was pleased with this saison, and it was very smooth for its relaively high-for-style ABV.

(Served in a tulip)
A- This beer pours a very hazy apricot body with a microbubble carbonation and a big beige cream that fills half the glass on the first pour. The head sticks to the glass with each sip.

S- The yeast bread dough aroma has some fresh meadow aroma with fresh rain and green fruity hops growing in the finish. There is an apricot hint to the fruity finish aswell.

T- The spicy phenols and some classic saison esters blend with a green bitter hint that is soon overpowered by a slightly dry but full flavored hop finish. There is some tropical fruit qualities to the hops with some spice notes and a Munich malt sweetness that complements the other flavors nicely.

M- The medium mouthfeel is enhanced by the thick head texture and the tight fizz in the finish with no alcohol heat noticed.

O- The nice solid saison base has some interesting malt sweetness and good complexity to the full hop profile. This is very drinkable and sessionable.
