sarro (122) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2012
Sole Comp. bottle 101 of 120. Ours a hazy golden straw color with a nice sizable white head. Smell is light funk and brett with a bit of oak. Taste is full of cheese notes to me (old hops, parmesan, gouda) with a dry, spicy boozier finish. Very interesting wild ale.

tectactoe (1863) - Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2014 Bottle: Barrel Aged Seven w/ Brett edition. Bottle 85/168. Semi-clear, bright golden color. Slow, creeping gush upon opening the bottle, nothing lost. Aroma of heavy, funky Brett, mostly of the rotten & sweet pineapple persuasion. Musty, damp cotton with a heavy backing of dry driftwood. A touch of vinous white grape skins, sharp & acidic, hit the nostrils on the very back end. Taste, as expected, is full of that sharp, musty cotton & pineapple fruity Brett. Super funky, dry, & like a damp cotton blanket soaked with old pineapple juice. Hints of white grape, vinous notes, mild acidity, & finishing, dry wood. A very nice Brett forward beer from Upright. Do not give to those unfamiliar with funk.

Generously shared by one of the fine Portland RB folks at a tasting - Pours hazy orange with a white head. The aroma has a good amount of barrel oakiness, funky brett, rich malt, butteriness and some cheesy aspects. It has a fairly full body with soft carbonation. The flavor begins with rich malt, lots of brett, fairly sour, horseblanket and some husky wild bugginess. the finish has lots of cheese traits and bugs. Quite interesting and way different than the normal Seven.

Sarlacc83 (747) - Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle at a recent tasting. Thanks Todd! A: Cloudy yellow w/ a white head. N: Brettanomyces, funk, glue, horse blanket, grain, biscuit, lemon, and bleu cheese. T: Very yeasty with a pleasing sourness. Malt underneath and a lingering hop bitterness. M: Mealy, well carbed, medium body. O: This has turned into a brett bomb. Huge, huge yeastiness, which will remind one of aged Orval - without Orval’s pleasant simplicity.

mathieuc (1284) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head, no notes about retention or lacing. Aroma is tropical fruits, bretty/funky and winey. Taste is explicitly tropical with pineapples being at the front. Body is light and carbonation is "just right" (low-med). A really nice one!

czar (4371) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
bottle @ cascade + upright tasting sessions - ’coz we’re porks. pours hazy bright yellow with a nice white head, some retention and lacing. bretty, lemony, woodsy, spicy, very fruity, light acetic notes. bright to average carbonation, light body - oily, grassy-herbal dry bretty finish. very nice but lost a bit of subtle characteristics of seven.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by hoppypocket, thanks! Hazy golden with a small persistent white head and good lacing. Aroma is of fruity brettanomyces, winey notes, light malt sweetness and light floral/herbal notes. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with winey notes, fruity brettanomyces, caramel, floral notes and light oak spiciness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Winey mouthfeel. Another great barrel treatment of the Seven. Complex, drinkable and lovely! I preferred this one to Rose City Seven, but my favorite remains De La Seven!
