BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Upright Brewing Company
Oregon, United States | website

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

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

Thanks to pecorasc for splitting this beer with me. Poured into tulip glasses.

A- Pours a hazy, yellow-golden color. Produced massive amounts of frothy, white head. Some lacing as the beer was consumed.

S- Barnyard funk along with some lemon zest and black pepper. Very nice interpretation of a traditional saison.

T- Upfront the usual flavors come into play...wheat, hay, brett and yeast combine to give a farmhouse feel to the beer. Midway through some lemon zest and spices come in and lend the beer a touch of sweet acidity. Also picking up notes of lemon grass as well. Really enjoying this one.

M- Light to medium bodied. Great carbonation. Finishes a touch on the dry side.

D- This was very easy to consume. The alcohol does not come into play whatsoever.

Overall, not a big fan of saisons, but I really liked this one. There was enough sweet/sour acidity to give this a different profile than most traditional saisons. Really glad to have tried this one.

I had a glass of this at the brewery, poured by Alex himself, reviewed from notes on my phone, served in an old GABF flute glass, color is a a dark yellow with some orange, big one inch white creamy head that stuck close to five minutes, not much lacing though, aroma consists of yeast, mild booze, sugars, lemon, orange peel, grassy accents, green fruits, and banana, starts off with sweet malts and stays that way through the middle, finish has a hint of booze and a bit of tartiness that tastes along the lines of oranges, some sugars and candy-like flavors come out as it warms more, lots of complexity and is quite full for its so-called style, slightly sweet and warm mouthfeel, medium bodied but probably on the thicker side for a saison, although this does not really fit in to any one style, softer carbonation than the other Upright brews, could drink a few more glasses of this, a bit of alcohol in the flavor but it enhances the taste and feel of the beer rather than limiting its drinkability, very easy drinking for over eight percent, would drink again, recommended
