Bottle from Brewery Creek. A lemony and Bretty aroma greets you. Yellow golden body with lots of soapy head. A lemon and wheat tartness. Lacey. Above average carbonation. A good drinker though a tongue burner with the Thai spice. As a saison, well its tart.

On tap at Little Bear in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky orange-yellow with a foamy bone colored head hat settles to an island of film on top of the beer. A foamy latticework of lace forms around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, malt, yeast, and spice. Taste is much the same with a mild spice bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

they call this table beer, and i agree, its very light and soft, but its strange, because this is nowhere near as tart as fatali four, which i thought was the same thing just with the peppers added. this doesnt have that mouthwatering nose to it of sour mash funk and light yeast. its blonde and hazy in looks, heady as they come, hard to pour reasonably even, but the nose is really understated. white wheat malt and a little acidity with floral yeast, all very low key. the taste is similar, a little herbal and summery for this time of year, but if it had the tartness of the fatali version, this would be incredible. its well made beer without question, and tastes pretty good for how light it is, definitely yeast driven with a little bit of sourness, but its awfully subtle. maybe age would let this develop more, or maybe its an exercise in subtlety, but its missing something for me, as much as i do like it. the yeast is the best part, saison style and very bright carbonation helps this stay casual. overall a well crafted brew but id like to see its tartness come out a little more the way it did in fatali four.

Aah, riding the rails of the current trend for dedicated American-ized Farmhouse Ale allows Upright Brewing to build upon a tart fruity, lightly spicy and sparkling effervescence for a "funky-fresh" taste and texture- executed to perfection.

Milky straw in its color, the beer's unfiltered character and use of wheat is quite evident. A quick rise of ivory foam cuts through the haze and provides an army of bubbles to deliver all those delicate aromas. Its long-lasting retention and concentric lacing patterns all reinforce the notion of a well-built ale.

Medium sharp aromas tart tropical fruit, citrus and orchard varieties are vibrant and highly alluring to the nose- grapefruit, oranges, passion fruit, lemons, apples, limes, and kiwi can all be drawn from the ever-evolving scent. A soft pillow of dough and a sprinkle of confectioner's sugar offers light support the the fruit and allows the beer to become something other than simply tart fruit juices.

To taste, its the supple sweetness of cookie dough that takes hold on the early palate. But as the taste carries into middle palate, the sharper, drier and more zesty taste of citrus, tropical and tart fruits give the beer a bright taste that hinges of wine must, cider and champagne. As the taste finishes, a mustier tone takes hold- weathered oak, dry hay, lemongrass, coriander and dried citrus peels, and a mild leather note wafts about the palate.

Soft and pillowy on the palate, its arid creaminess and playful acidity plays out like fluffy key lime pie. Firmly dry on the throat, the ale hides its warmth very well with the evaporation cooling effect, seemingly of mint. The ale finishes nearly as much like sparkling wine as it does Saison.

Upright has done a masterful job with this Saison of lighter fare. Though chocked full of complexities, much of them remain understated and delicate. Though it allows for great drinkability, its effortlessness is also its limitation.

750ml bottle, a new brewery to arrive on the store shelves here in Alberta. Upon looking up their location, it seems that I walked past it a dozen or so times when I was in PDX a few years ago, and never darkened their doorstep.

This beer pours a cloudy medium golden yellow hue, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and fairly bubbly off-white head, which leaves some random splotches of scattered lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of grainy, somewhat bready wheat malt, a bit of heady sugar syrup sweetness, applesauce and lemon pudding fruitiness, dry, prickly yeast, a hint of white pepper, and floral, earthy hops. The taste is more semi-sweet, crackery wheat malt, withered candi sugar, a touch of coriander/black pepper spiciness, aged lemon rind, an ethereally funky yeast character, and some nicely laid-back herbal, grassy hops.

The carbonation is rather understated, manifesting in a small, teasing frothiness, the body medium-light in weight, and generally quite smooth. It finishes mostly dry, kind of crisp, and with an uptick in the tiny, tiny bubbles.

A pretty pleasant farmhouse ale, in the old-world paradigm - nothing really stands out, and that's the point - grain, yeast, spice, and hop all working to do nothing other than quench your thirst, and perhaps warm you up a tad. Success on all accounts here, I'd say.

Huge thanks to boralyl for sending some of this out my way. Served in a tulip.

Pours a hazy yellow with a good white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose has a bit of grass and grain, plus a bit of celery, which sounds strange, but works quite well. Flavor takes it up a notch with great wheat and yeast character. Good hopping throughout with a dry, butter finish. Really excellent and similar to the De La Senne and Jandrain-Jandrenouille fresh saisons we had in Belgium. Sublime. It is unreal to gave this much flavor and character in a 4.5% beer.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a very cloudy golden with an amber hue. There is a finger of fluffy white head with solid retention and mild lacing.

Smell: Light and herbal. You can smell the malt, but it isn't particularly sweet. There are some light citrus notes as well.

Taste: Light but very flavorful. Crisp and refreshing. There are some herbal and mild fruity citrus notes. The finish is mildly herbal and slightly bitter.

Mouthfeel: The body is a bit thin. The carbonation is aggressive with a finish that's a bit dry.

Overall: This is a really flavorful beer given the abv. Great session beer.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours extremely hazy golden amber color with a 3 finger foamy and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, straw, grass, light funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, bread, pepper, clove, grass, straw, light funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, wheat, bread, pepper, clove, grass, straw, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good flavor robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and prickly mouthfeel that is great. Zero alcohol warming present after the finish as expected for 4.5%. Overall this is an excellent session saison style. All around great balance, complexity, and robustness of flavors for 4.5%; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

First had: bottle from an off-the-shelf trade

I've had some gushers from Upright before, so I held this one over the sink while opening...but it was fine. It was definitely highly active though, and a gentle pour still yielded a full glass of foam, which finally settled, revealing a golden brown liquid; the fuzzy head never fully dissipated. The aroma was quite earthy, notes of saison yeast, herbal, with notes of ripe indistinct fruit. Flavors of candied citrus peel, earth, spicy yeast, toasted wheat. Quite nice. Medium body, clean mouthfeel, moderate carbonation (after the initial calm-down). Enjoyable.

A: The pour is pale straw in color with a big, fluffy, white head that slowly dies down but clings to the glass.

S: There are some decently spicy esters to open up, but that quickly gives way to a more wild character. Lots of grass and lemon, particularly lemon zest. Quite a bit of lactobacillus notes to it.

T: This is surprisingly tart, mostly from lemon zest and lemon juice type of lactic flavors. Grassy hops and a very slight bitterness to the beer. Just a bit of pale cracker malts as the base. This is very dry, almost always good.

M: The body is light to medium, appropriate for a table beer. Quite high in terms of carbonation with a drying finish.

D: I quite liked this. Surprisingly strong in terms of the lactic traits, but I enjoy that. Quite complex and interesting for a "table" beer.

Thanks to stakem for sharing this with me -750ml into a tulip at cool temp. The bottle might have needed more chilling or the yeast is extremely active -either way this a serious 'creeper' not a 'gusher' since it took over 3 glasses filled twice for us to allow the head to settle and be able to be consumed.

A beautiful shade of golden with a huge cap of 3fingers with huge white bubbles, almost irridescent looking in the light. The liquid is a hazed apricot body with lots of lace stickage in a flame pattern up the glass after the time to stratify occured. the retention is decent too. The smell is malty with a light yeasty scent with some floral hop elements and slight toasted grainy note in the back. The yeast provides a good emphassis the the wheat malt with light pale toastiness. I think the fruit in the saison ester takes a backseat to the malt aromas. The feel is luxurious and supple with soft, slightly creamy malt and mild tang of yeast. There is a hint of spice but very mild with a mild sweet element and slight cereal quality which is chewy and very gentle tinge of alcohol if any. The semi-dry finish is pleasantly yeasty.

The taste is mild but full of malt with light biscuit and creamy essence of wheat with subtle tinge of fruit and light yeasty tinge with some light caramel and the floral essence of low acid hops with gentle wine-like white grape tang in the background. The hops combined with the yeast seem grassy in spots, but generally more of a light tea-like astringent tinge. I like how full of malt yet balanced by the yeast this is. A real enjoyable beer, I could drink glass after glass- it achieves it's goal of high drinkability and then some. I like how it made me picture a farmer would reach for something refreshing and quenching as this is after some honest sweat from working the earth. This is a really quaffable ale with a lot of flavor even at low abv. I love Belgian styles such as this when they are done well.

Lots of citrus on this one. The lemon on the nose hits hard at first and fades fairly soon. There is a high amount on the flavor profile with a lot of acid on the profile. Also a bit of an earthy woody thing on the backside. Too much citrus on this one, for my taste. Outdoes everything else and nothing else has an opportunity to shine. A so-so saison. Just too one sided.

Bottle shared by 321Jeff. Thanks!

The beer is a hazy, straw yellow hue with a couple inches of thick, white head that leaves a thick sheet of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings lemons, spice, grass, fresh celery. The flavor is refreshing with crisp, zesty carbonation. Light floral and citrus notes are quite enjoyable. The feel is light on the palate. Highly drinkable.

Thanks to jconrick1 for the opportunity to try this. Shared with Slatetank and poured into several snifters. The 750ml opens with a boom and slowly starts to creep up the neck of the bottle. Not really an explosive gusher that caused lost volume but a persistent creeper that just wont stop foaming. Poured into a pair of snifters reveals nothing but frothy white head. It takes roughly 6 glasses and 3/4 of the bottle to be emptied before all glasses can be combined into 2 for enjoying. The brew appears a golden color with a huge froth cap of white head that very slowly recedes composed of very large bubbles.

The smell of this brew is rindy with lemon zest and pulp. some spicy yeast and earthy elements are throughout. Quite fruity and floral with a slight alcohol tang across the back. Some sniffs reveal a bit of minerals that quickly dissolve into earthy components. The fruited quality has a hint of lime. Overall a pleasant aroma very well balanced and blended. For less than 5% alcohol, it seemingly has a touch of fusel aspect about it when it gets warm.

The taste is mildly fruity like orange rinds and zest. Some tangy aspect perhaps from the wheat with notes of mineral. Collectively the taste of this brew comes together to mimic something mildly grape-like. Yeast is present with a spiced aspect along with a very mild bitterness to round things out. The alcohol is absent in flavor.

The alcohol inclusion in this brew provides a warmth that seems in excess of the listed 4.5%. It is very well blended, balanced and flavorful. This is a medium bodied offering with an excessive amount of carbonation in the look but as it settles down it is not as prickly as you would expect on the tongue. Very easy drinking, this is one I would partake in again but perhaps I would chill it down much lower than usual before opening in order to make the pour less stressful.

750 mL bottle poured into a Russian River -tion glass. No bottle date.

Appearance - Slightly hazy yellow-orange body with a huge white head. No lacing on the glass, but the retention is good.

Smell - Citrusy lemon-orange yeasty character. Strong bready malt. Nice and light smelling.

Taste - More yeasty in the taste than the aroma. Slightly tangy flavor that builds into the finish. It somewhat masks the other flavors. Bready malt character that faintly comes through and a earthy hop finish that's a nice counter point to the tang.

Mouthfeel - Light. Well carbonated. Easy drinking. The tartness perhaps detracts from the drinkability, but it's still nice.

Overall - I like sours, but I don't know that I like the sour character of this beer. It's a very nice saison otherwise. The sour flavors just mask what I think would be a very nice beer.

Lemon yellow color, an omen of scents and flavors to come.

Smells strongly of lemon and less strongly of yeast and spices.

Tastes just as strongly of lemon, a rather tart saison. The lemon flavors are too dominant. As it warms they fade a little bit and it improves some.

This is supposed to be their traditional saison, a table beer, but to me it's one dimensional and over the top with lemon flavor. It's pleasant but not their best.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A real soapy shampoo and bright white head, makes about three fingers nicely on the pour but has thin retention. Big gapping swiss cheese holes and light clumping, with lots of large bubbles popping. Body is a muted and opaque lemon, with nice thin carbonation rising and plentiful. Pretty good, crazy head though.

Mild floral sensations on the nose but very subdued. Not much yeast or malt profile on this. No sense of sweetness. Very closed but it is pleasant I'll give it that, but very little going on here.

A real interesting palate. Flavors are a little more noticeable but the mouthfeel steals the show. Playfully carbonated giving to orange and citrus mimosa like qualities, and a touch of light sugar. Finish of tropical fruit flavors and champagne crispness, with faint hint of pepper like sensing carbonation. Not particularly dry either, but quite juicy quenching palate.

Overall though there isn't much saison character to this it seems, but it's a very controlled citrus and tropical fueled brew. Somewhere between a solid Belgian pale with more fruity quality. Neat beer.

Thanks Thorpe, finally clearling out the backlog.

Beer is yellow with a haze to it, a small white head of small bubbles some lacing moderate carbonation.

Aroma is earthy, grassy, estery, floral. Nice. Mild vegetalness but it goes well with the saison yeast aromas.

Beer is thin in body and wet on the finish with a mild wheat like bitterness and some floral flavors and nice finishing notes. An easy drinking nice mildly hoppy saison. I really enjoyed it and would have it again.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. This was sampled alongside Upright 5, 6 and 7.

The beer pours a hazy light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is lemon, citrus, spices and coriander. The flavor is lemon and orange citrus with some wheat and spicy hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Sampled June 2011
A solid pour produces a fat, two-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a pale honey / straw color that shows a richly hazed, yellow straw color when held up to the light. The aroma smells of earthy, slihglty grassy coriander, with touches of orange zest, dusty cracker like malt, freshly threshed pale grain (along with the dried straw like character). There is a faint touch of tartness to the finish that is perhaps accentuated by the hints of orange zest. I really like the slightly musty, expressive, sunny grain character that this beer has. As my nose adjusts to it, there also seems to be a light tartness to this brew

This has a zippy carbonation to it that pairs nicely with a nicely tart finish; it is much more tart than I was expecting & I am quite pleasantly surprised. The tartness pairs nicely with the light orange zest flavor that is in the finish. There some straw like pale grain character here as well as a touch of pale-wheat-cracker-like grain notes. This is very light bodied and refreshing (the tartness helps with this last), but it also isn’t overly thin or watery. There is a touch of mustiness here, though not as much as in the nose, but overall the tartness coupled with the hay-like grain character makes this seem clean and refreshing. There is an earthy, somewhat herbaceous, coriander character that forms a nice supporting backbone to the more prominent flavors already mentioned.

I am quite pleased that this is a Wit with some nice tartness to it; it is definitely the way I have come to prefer my Wits. It has even got me a bit more excited about the tart Wit that I am just about ready to bottle up of my own. This is eminently quaffable and a great Wit. The more I get into this, the more I am enjoying this beer. The fact that the tartness is pretty clean, is actually quite nice; there isn’t any real funk here, which would actually overwhelm the flavors of this beer.

Poured from 750mL bottle into my Selkirk Abbey tulip.

Appearance: light golden hue with a light haze and a moderately strong effervescence. Head pours an inconvenient 3+ fingers of frothy white foam which dissipate slowly and leave a chunky lace. Aside from the inconvenience, a pretty attractive beer!

Smell: lightly sweet malt with a bit of a pear-like character at first; then a far more unctuous umami develops in the aroma. It makes me think of tomatoes and soy sauce, though it's not anywhere near so strong as that. A fascinating brew.

Taste: sweet malt with a hint of diacetyl butteriness. There's a little funk and a nice grassiness here, but the umami from the aroma isn't really present. What a weird brew. The flavor is subtle but well-wrought; I like it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a colossal carbonation. Creaminess is big and mouth-filling -- good stuff.

Overall: a weird beer even by Portland saison standards. That said, I like the experimental feel to it. Definitely worth a try if you come across it.

On tap at Bailey's the other day.

The beer pours a hazy honey gold color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose, there's a pretty noticeable "wheatiness" to this beer, though there's also some attractive spice, including lemon zest and light ginger. The flavor profile generally replicates the nose, but with some attractive hoppy bitterness on the finish that tames the modest sweetness in this beer quite nicely. Consequently, the finish on this beer is pretty much on the dry side, and mouthfeel is light and a bit crisp. Still, for such a low alcohol beer, I have to say I'm pretty impressed by the amount of flavor in this beer. Drinkability is excellent, and I couldn't help thinking what a great beer this would be for the warm, summer months on the East Coast (except, of course, this beer unfortunately is not available on the East Coast).

Very nice beer...

A very nice lower alcohol offering from this fine brewer. Beautifully balanced with some hop spiciness and a surprisingly firm malt profile with a finish with some snap to it. Crisp, clean, but not watery, with a very clean but flavorful herbal hop profile throughout, and a bit of citrus in the finish. This is a textbook case of how to make a flavorful, low abv beer that still retains enough body to make it feel like you're having something substantial. Tasty, and impressive compared to many other lower abv craft brews I've had.

One of the palest, lightest beers I can remember. Hazy very light yellow/gold with an absurd bubble bath head that settles very slowly; patchy lace sticks to the glass.

Nice nose; nothing too big; yeasty, lemony citrus, floral notes, distinct wheat. In the flavor, the yeast is manifest as a peppery spice note; grainy wheat meshes well with grassy, floral hops (Hallertauer Mittelfruh) and pale malt. Mild tartness and citrusy character; lingering bitterness, dry finish.

Medium light body with lively carbonation. In combination with the assertive pepper it dances on the tongue pretty well. Easy drinking, very dry nature brings you back for more quickly.

On tap at The Belmont Station. Light gold and semi-cloudy with a small white head. The retention is good and there's a little lacing.

Aromas are of wheat, spices, and some tartness. Yeastiness and some light fruity esters are present. The flavor has some spiciness up front with light fruits: lemon and apricot. The beer has a low level of acidity. This is very flavorful for a 4% beer. No alcohol is noticeable.

The beer is light bodied. It's flavorful while having a low ABV and being light on the palate.
