Upright Brewing Company
Oregon, United States
uprightbrewing.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
"Four is truly a light yet flavorful beer. The recipe uses a good portion of wheat and incorporates a sour mash into the process to make it slightly tart and extra refreshing. It has delicate aromas and flavors that span a range of floral, grassy and herbal notes. The finish is extra dry and makes the beer a great beverage to pair with food, especially various cheeses and shellfish."

Malts and Grains: pale, wheat, and munich, rolled wheat
Hops: hallertauer mittlefruh
Yeast: french saison

Had this poured into a weizen glass. LOTS of carbonation on the pour and on the mouthfeel. Youll definitely get the sour mash taste and to a lesser extent in the aroma. Tart lemon flavor. The lool was a translucent yellow-gold. Pretty good stuff.

Poured from a capped 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. No date identified.

A: Hazy, pale golden body. 1 finger of white head. Ok retention.

S: Floral hops with lemon, faint pine notes. Grassy, cracker-forward pale malts Lightly musty yeast. Trace coriander, tropical fruit.

T: Slight tartness and yeast open. Subdued malt. Slow build of soft hop notes to a semi-dry to dry finish. No alcohol presence.

M: Moderate carbonation with a light body. Somewhat watery feel.

O: The quality of the flavors and scents are actually quite nice; however, they are suffering from a serious lack of potency. Almost like a good beer cut with 25% water. Peculiar.

Prost!
