COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
14th is a blend of several different batches of Upright’s farmhouse style wheat beer, the Four. Here’s the scoop: 8% fresh Four 12% Four aged in Ransom Old Tom Gin barrels 22% Four aged in Ransom Old Tom Gin barrels with brettanomyces claussenii and lactobacillus 58% Four aged in Ransom Old Tom Gin barrels with brettanomyces claussenii and lactobacillus with apricot puree 50% of the brett/lacto aged beer is with Upright’s usual French saison yeast, the other half is primarily fermented with yeast propagated from a De Ranke bottle.  And it’s only 4.75% ABV so its a wonderfully complex dinner beer!

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 3, 2011
A: The pour is a cloudy yellow color with a really tall white head. S: A very funky nose. The gin really comes through strong as there is a very strong herbal/juniper character. A bit of a floral aroma as well as some cracker malts, citrus, and a light, lemony tartness. T: Moderate tartness in the form of lemon and grapefruit. Lots of herbal gin flavor with a touch of lime and miscellaneous citrus zest. A nice funk note as well as strong, tannic oak. M: Light to medium in body with a medium to high carbonation. O: The gin barrel treatment is really interesting, but Upright seems to be doing it well.
