Just had this on tap in the Upright tasting room.... WOW. This is one of the better beers I’ve had in Portland and just might beat all of the Cascade sours (which is really saying a lot.) Sour, funky aroma.... really pronounced oakiness. Really smooth flavor with just the right amount of sourness. Straight up incredible beer..... get it while you can.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, somehow forgotten in the depths of Parksy’s fridge. Hazy red-amber pour with a finely bubbled beige head. Aroma is fruity, spicy, and slightly sour. Tart fruity entry, cranberries come to mind, with spicy chocolate quick to follow. Woody dryness in the finish. Very cool, enjoyable. Beautiful label too I must say.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
August 27, 2011 - bottle shared by blankboy at Volo - thanks, Paul!!! Very dark brownish red with a solid creamy beige lasting head. Love that aroma - red wine, light dry oak, lemon, spice, floral - terrific. Taste - I think I found the sour funk - lemon and lemon drop up front, sweet turned sour and wild, some alcohol, all those element swirl around and make me drool - my gut may regret it later, but so, so good. Solid body, just light acidity, airy, yielding a dry oaky finish, with tannin bitterness in the aftertaste - yeah man!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to yourefragile for sharing this bottle. Served in a SAVOR wine glass during the 2012 Rose Bowl.
Pouts a slightly-hazy dark brown color with a nice off-white head and a little bit of lacing. The nose brings some light lactic character with a bit of cherry and stone fruits. Faint earthiness. Favor is pretty similar. Light wine character comes through a bit more here. Light body and good carbonation. Truly solid; not surprising from Upright. Big fan.

Bottle shared at my house. Pours brown with tan head. Nose/taste of peppercorns, caramel, vinous pinot noir notes, orange peel and oak. Well balanced vinegary tartness that compliments and doesn’t overpower. Medium body.
