Upright Sole Composition: Rose City Seven


Brewed by Upright Brewing
Portland, Oregon USA
Style: Saison | Ratings: 41 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 8.2%
Rose City Seven is a special single cask batch of Uprightís year-round strong saison that was aged on a mix of hibiscus, rose hips and rose petals in a former Pinot Noir barrel. The finished beer, which yielded barely over four kegs, has a strong floral aroma that blends with Sevenís natural citric and spicy character.

Our entry to the organic fest this year. It spent several months in a barrel that housed our Billy the Mountain Old Ale which uses a strain of brettanomyces called claussenii, giving the beer a gentle acidity and some earthy notes to contrast the big floral component coming from hibiscus, rose hips and rose petals, all of which were added directly to the aging beer.
