Bottle shared by barkingelectron at his sour tasting.

Pours clear gold with a soft pillow of white foam.

Aroma features peach, apple, some citrus with hay a heavy floral scent and pepper.

Grainy up front taste. A little bid of lactic acid although not very sour at all. Some lemon and hay. Oak slightly overpowers some of the more delicate flavors and it finishes floral and pepper a combination I don't really care for.

Low to medium in mouthfeel with ample carbonation.

Not a big fan of the flavor profile and some of the flavors did not mix together very well. Hardly any tartness here and more of the peppery normal saison flavors dominate. My least favorite of the Upright brews I've had so far.

Pours a night dark golden yellow color with crazy huge white soapy head leaving ridiculously sticky lacing as it slowly slowly recedes. I love sticky looking lacing, it just screams that a good beer is coming; I don't why that is, anyway...

Aromas begin with a ton of sweet and sours smells; I get a lot of citrus rind here. In the background there is some mustiness and some light woody oak. Spot on for a Brett Saison in my book.

The tastes are surprisingly not too sour or tart as I expected with such a big aroma. There definitely is citrus flavors abound here with some more funky grassiness and mustiness. Solid earthiness and oak in the finish.

The mouthfeel is my only detractor on this beer. It drinks a little heavier than most Brett beers and as crazy as the initial carbonation looked, it doesn't show up in the mouthfeel for some reason.

Overall this was really nice and well balanced. My favorite sour of the night for sure (Dissident, Askew, Brute and Oude Tart were sampled as well). I have been meaning to try something from Upright and I am glad I finally did. This was solid enough that I will definitely try more in the future if possible.

Thanks to wethorseblanket for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Bottle # 119 of 168.

Pours a clear golden-orange with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, Brett, funk, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, fruit, Brett, and funk flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a nice combination of sour fruit and Brett characteristics.

Serving type: bottle.

#102/114

hill farmstead stemware - bright orange body, some healthy white foam - nice aromas of brett, oak barrel, vinous notes. Flavor profile highlights peach, apricot skin, wine barrel, lots of brett, straw, spice, lemon. A nice beer - happy to have another - wont knock your socks off, but well crafted
