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 (2538) - 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.

Beautiful pour with huge white head. Hoppy... grassy hops, white sage, white pepper. Hearty malt presence. Nice body. Would love to drink more of this.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2011
Thanks to an unknown BA for opening this up at the Rosso release. Served in a SAVOR snifter. Pour yields a Texas Longhorn color with a nice white head and a bit of lacing as it moved down the glass. The nose brings forward some mild citrus rind and stone fruits plus a bit of yeasty spice. A bit tame, but nice. The flavor hits much harder with a good bit of breadiness as well as fruit and spice. Body is medium with really nice carbonation. A solid beer from Upright, a brewery that hasnít disappointed me yet. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-20-2011

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2011
Pale pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is hops, toffee, and spice. Big herbal tone upfront with an astringent hop bite on the backside.

dchmela (3010) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2011
Bottle from Whole Foods in Portland. Hazy light orange amber pour with a thick white head. Huge herbal aroma, notes of citrus peel and mint. Very complex. Smooth clean malt taste with hints of caramel, citrus and more herbal, fruity notes. Wonderful, clean crisp saison with complex flavors that keep you looking for more. Awesome.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2011
(750ml bottle from Bruery Provisions Store). Pours a hazy dark golden color with massive off-white head. Aroma has some spice, ripe banana, dried apricot and florals. Taste has a moderately sweet malt backbone which is followed by some hop bitterness and then ends with a sourish note. Its seems a bit off. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Finish is dry. Not as good as 7, but a decent saison.

750 ml bottle poured a hazy amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of dried hay, light spice and light fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, eartrhiness, some herbal notes and light spice with a crisp dry finish.
