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

Aquilo (525) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Clear golden color with a small sparkly head. Rich floral aroma of honeysuckle, rose, apricot, cedar, and a hint of sour cherry. Flavor is pleasantly sour, and the finish is wonderfully crisp.

My friend up in Salem has been singing the praises of Upright Brewing’s stuff for more than a few weeks now, crowing and bragging every time she makes a visit to the brewery proper in Portland. And so when the opportunity presented itself, I decided to invest in a line of their bottles that had meandered far enough South for me to get my peasant’s hands on them. The Seven is the second of the three I’ve tried, and the first of their saison or saison-esque brews. It’s pretty to behold, with foam that plateaus up and up, creating a beautiful, marble white smooth geology, and a precariously soft precipice. In spite of a bulwark of bubbles, there is a clear, fruity and ester-laden scent of pears, raspberries, blueberries, champagne, green apples and even a light floral scent - intoxicating, and wonderful! And a sip produces a soft, low, murmuring brew that starts half-inflated and ends a wiser, shriveled and more intense version of its former self. It’s a lighter touch than the nose, with pronounced banana and soft pear notes, with a light butteriness, gentle berry touches, and a nice biscuity yeast. This is a really beautiful beer in all the senses, and really shows off Upright’s prowess with saison - no mean feat, given how little room for error there can be. But they dance on those error margins like Russian ballet dancers, with flair and gusto that belie a wonderful elegance.

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Cloudy, thin head, aroma is pale malt, taste is sweeter than expected, subtle tart notes, a dash if floral hops. On draught, this might be a bit young - sweet and yeasty - but you can see there’s something solid beer here.

Bomber. Hazy yellow gold with a think, foamy, clean white head; lasting with great lacing. Aromas of citrus, pineapple, grain, bread, clove and spice. Flavor is sweet citrus, pineapple, mango, light clove and spice with subtle underlying grass, straw and grain.Medium bodied with a dry finish.

tenacubus (9) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2014 does not count
750ml bottle. Golden and not quite clear with voluptuous but overabundant head. Getting a bit of sweetness on the nose that comes through as molasses in the flavor. A bit maltier than normal for a saison but the usual peppery flavors and dry effervescent finish are there as well.

HonkeyBra (3115) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazed orangish amber pour with a thick, rocky head. Aroma of fruity and grassy hops, lots of fruit, hay, and pilsner malt. Taste is sweet, malt and belgian yeast driven. Light, refreshing, with effervescent carbonation and crisp mouthfeel. Finishes floral and fruity. Very nice.

That1Guy (1868) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2014
750 mL bottle crushed with Honkeybra. Pours hazy orange with an enormous white head that sticks to the glass and stays big and rocky. Peach, earthiness, other light fruits in the aroma and flavor. Very light and refreshing, even at 8%.

harrymel (1450) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottled: unk Pours a mildly hazed golden ale with a solid top quilt of thick, large bubbled whites. Smells of green apples, grain, belgian yeast, some mild lemon and yogurt notes. Flavor is sweet, with some pear, some wort flavor, a little melon and a slight bitterness and some dandelion. Medium on light bodied with low, soft carb and a semi dry finish. I like this one, would fare well soured up (probably is and I might have had it, but just don’t know)

Really enjoy this one. Beautiful hazy straw color. Aroma is lemon, spice, fruity. Flavor is tart, bitter, and funky with lemon and citrus flavors. Also has some nice spice, most like white pepper. Light and carbonated. I could drink this all day on a hot summer day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
