Malts: organic pale,organic caramel
Unmalted: rolled barley
Hops: willamette, liberty, perle
Also: xanthohumol (bottles only)

Draft at the tasting room. Hazy golden color. Aroma of burnt straw. Taste has straw, grass, good malt balance. Nice.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2011 Bottle, courtesy GT2. Pour is hazy gold with a big white head which leaves good lacing. Aroma is citrus, herbal, pepper, spice, cardboard. Taste is cardboard, breadiness, some hop bitterness. Palate is bitter, very chalky. This bottle seemed to be infected with something weird. Re-rate: managed to get an untainted pour. Was considerably better with no weird cardboard notes, and overall a nice saison.

750mL thanks to peteinSD. The pour is a very hazy orange, glowing, with an enormous off-white head with massive rockiness and sheen appearance. Ice cream float retention. Nose is a little olive and pimento, tomato, salt, orange, lemon. Taste is pretty drained- benevolent infection? Not really anything here except cardboard and lemon Perrier. Slight "spice" and wood. If this is supposed to be hoppy saison....Iím getting none of that. Palate is sort of there- fuller, spritzy, dry, powdery.

Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a cloudy orange amber color with a very fluffy white head. Pleasing aroma of apricot, peach, and other aromatic fleshy fruits. A touch of spice as well. I have to say, I rather like the smell on this hot afternoon. The taste is sweet and fruit forward with peach, apricot, and banana. Some lemon zest flavor as well along with a slight spice. At the end there is a bit of citrus rind bitterness. Overall, pretty tasty.

Bottle shared by Shawn, thanks man! Pour is cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is light spice, light pine, and light citrus hop. Flavor is clean with grassy notes underneath a more dominant flavor of pine and citrus hops. Solid beer.

My bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry at Volo. Pours a very cloudy orange-copper with a massive long-lasting fluffy off-white head. Wonderful Saison aroma: Yeasty, herbal, spicy and floral along with a nice amount of citrus fruit and light hops -- it all comes together nicely. Dry, lightly tart flavour of yeast, wheat, cereal grain, citrus fruit, pepper and a finish that is quite bitter for the style -- very easy to drink. Medium bodied and well carbonated for the style. Very good stuff, I could easily polish off a 750 of this.

750ml shared by TurdFerguson - thanks, Sam! Deep into a run of heavy beers, this was an awesome changeup. Bright deep orange body with a big rocky head. Grassy, spicy saison yeast in the nose along with some tart, young pears. Full, somewhat prickly mouthfeel. Well hopped and flavorful, there was some juniper and white pepper taste along with tons of dry flavors and nice fruits to balance things too. Iíll look forward to more from Upright.

joet (2056) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Darker than I expected, a copper orange liquid with slightly off white fine foam. Heavy mediums caramels. Substantial hop aromas orange, broader citric flavors. Surprisingly bitter. More citrusy hop notes. Lightly creamy but weak, wet feel. Biscuity malt coming in as it warms. Obviously the gas was holding up the acids. Interesting, even surprising but unidimensional brew.

750 ml bottle shared by lushawn- thanks, Shawn! Pours a hazy gold color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of musty funk, dust, bready and sweet malts, candi sugar, floral hops, and peppery spices. Flavor follows those same lines with some apple, grape, and peach fruitiness and more malty sweetness. Medium-bodied, with abundant soft carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Really nice saison, thanks for sharing!

Bottle from 5000. Thanks Andre! Saved this for a tasting and then someone opened it when I was out of the room. Luckily Ethan saved me some. Thanks bro. Smelled and tasted like a pretty fresh, hoppy saison. Slightly earthy and herbal with some mild tartness in the finish. Canít wait to try more brews from this brewery.
