BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Upright Brewing Company
Oregon, United States
uprightbrewing.com

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

My second time having this.

A - 750ml pours fall-leaf orange with some floaties+haze and a big ol white head to start. Retention is excellent, a thin-but-full cap with a thick ring around the edge, great lacing too.

S - Apple, green grape, pale herbally fruits, wet hay, yeast, baked bread, light spice, grains, bit-o-honey.

T - Pleasant citrus coming through here, kind of a creamsicle thing going on. More green grapes give this a slight chardonnay feel, a bit more in the way of herbal hops as well. Grains, bread, earthy straw, lightly spicy yeasts.

M - Kinda big-feeling and smooth with medium-high carbonation. A solid mix of yeasty/farmy/hoppy flavors with just a light tartness. No real alcohol taste but you can tell it's a higher-ABV saison.

O - Similar to their Four, which I got in a trade a while back - a solid, kinda straight-up saison, a bit on the hoppy side, farmy tones there not overbearing. Maybe a touch on the sweet side. Pretty solid all-around and one I'd probably enjoy anytime.
