Draft at Upright a few weeks back. From notes. Pours clear, light brown with minimal head. Aroma: caramel, dark fruit, candy. Palate: Medium/full body, slick texture. Taste: Some char, lots of fruit; moderately sweet. Overall: it’s cool that Upright splits their attention between sours/saisons/barrels and lagers.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2014 Draught at Grain and Gristle. Thick malty and spicy nose. Ruby color, with good lace. Sweet sticky rich toasty malt / light spiciness and alc. warmth / sweet and smooth finish and then it floats away. Medium body. Very nicely done. Tastes both true to style and amped up a bit higher than normal for the style.
