3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml. Pours a lovely straw yellow. Hints of grain and summer flowers on the nose. Flavors lean towards beautiful touches of calendula, hay, a bit of barnyard grains, tender sweeter malts, and finishes with a really pleasant grassy note. Damn good light stuff!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy blonde, very spicy/peppery aroma, herbal, very peppery character. Sweet pale malts and low bitterness. Complex, very nice balance as usual. Good herbals, off-dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At upright with Taylor, Stephen, and Dina. Pours yellow hint of orange with thin head. Aroma is tangy orange hay zest. Taste is big raw barely and raw wheat grain grass note, some lemon peel bitter notes but not citrus. Nice and drinkable, strong grainy grassy backbone.

Difficult to pour this one, too much head. Golden hazy beer eventually. Nice herbal tea aroma, with some citrus. Spicy year, lime, herbal tea, lemon zest. Very nice but a shame I got about one pint from this big bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle from Star Grocery. It pours a hazy orange color, rather dark with a white head. The aroma is floral with some strong notes of lemongrass, lemon candy, floral perfume and a very faint hint of spice. Pleasant. The flavor is similarly light and floral with some mild candy like sweetness. Some more floral perfume and hints of spice before mild bitterness in the finish. Kind of simple and devoid of the rustic character that I usually get from Upright Saisons. Still very pleasant though.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks zvikar. Hazy deep golden with a white head. Aroma of floral spiciness, yeast and some fruitiness, sweetish flavor with yeast, lots of floral spiciness, some fruitiness, some malt and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. Not my thing.

750ml Bottle pours a very hazy pale brown/yellow color with a lot of frothy head. Wow. Amazing balance of flavor. A little marmalade, mild sweetness. Love the way it looks. I've got the barrel aged version to try too, and can't believe it could be better than this.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Spicy yet delicate belgian yeast fragrance, slightly banana-y. Flavor is perfect for summer, herbacious flower taste and spice on the finish. Super sessionable.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks zvikar. Hazy yellow with a small head. Spicy and herbal aroma with strong calendula and yarrow notes and some fruitiness. Sweet with mild medicinal and herbal bitterness, light fruitiness. Interesting, but a bit messy.
