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

Poured from a fresh bottle into my stemless tulip. Super hazy and dense color, looks amazing, like a meal in a glass. Amazing display of bready malt, belgian yeast, and floral hops. Huge flavor, with a nice medium-thick mouthfeel. Seek this one out, it is a refreshingly good beer.

Fresh bottle served in a wine glass cold.

Appearance: honey gold with a nice white fluffy head, lots of sediment in the glass towards the end of the bottle.

Nose: peaches, apricots, Belgian funk from the yeast, malty and bready, honey

Taste: nice and refreshing, slight Belgian funk from the yeast but not a Brett character, honey forward with tons of stone fruit character as well. Plenty of residual sweetness in there and a lot of honey in the finish. Some bitterness but I think it was from the yeast that got kicked up in the bottle.

Overall: nice Saison. I could use a more dry mouthfeel and less sweetness. The stone fruit character was very nice and I did like the creamy head. I feel this beer could benefit from the addition of some strain of Brett at bottling or maybe some barrel aging like GI Sofie. Overall, this is a nice saison and I'd drink it again.

Lots of frothy head. A little too sweet for a typical saison. A good drinkable beer.

750 poured to tulip

Pours a nice orange-gold, significant haze. One big finger of fairly dense white head settles to a persistent sticky film.

Smells of citrus, malt, bread, pepper

Flavor is bright lemon-peppery with a honey like sweetness, and a lightly bitter grapefruit tang on the back end

Mouthfeel is very light and refreshing for the abv

My first time trying anything from Upright. Very nice take on the style, pretty big on the alcohol but still crisp and refreshing. Classic peppery sais nose, with equally classic flavor notes. Surprising hop bill, as it doesn't strike me hoppy in any dimension other than a neat grapefruit-bitterness on the backend. A lovely introduction... next time I fly to PDX my tray table will totally be in the Upright position.

Enjoyed at a recent saison themed tasting poured chilled in a willybecker chilled.

The color is more amber than gold with thick whipped looking white head. The smell has a nice noble hop quality with earthy smell and mild malt. The feel is very soft with low sweetness and gentle bitterness with slight yeast in the texture.

This is a very good tasting saison, perhaps a little age yet the malt still has a fresh taste with less hops than the aroma hints at, very easy to quaff with slight creamy yeast combined with the breadiness of the malt. I would drink this again a very enjoyable ale.
