3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate sour lemon, white wine, citrus, and a touch of pine. It pours a hazy dull yellow with a small white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of orange and lemon. The finish has lemon peel, brett, light white wine notes, and a touch of sweet tarts. It’s light bodied with somewhat lively carbonation.

750ml bottle. Thanks to Todd.... Bottle 45 of 110. Entering under Pinot but clearly gin barrel it seems... Pours a pale semi-hazy yellow orange and topped with a thin creamy white head... Aroma of florals and gin botanicals. Slightly yogurty but nice and spiced more in the botanical side. Grows on you... Flavors are more of the same with somewhat watered down floral and gin botanicals. Slight mellow tartness with more gin on be backend lightly watered down with soft carbonation.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 hazy gold, wispy large bubbled white head and ring. Awesome nose, gin spice so awesome, compliments dry grassy profile, floral sweetness plays with Four’s complex grains, ultra integrated, so DECEPTIVELY complex. Flavor is equally bright, gin kicking ass with light juniper brightness behind the citrus front, herbaceous, grainy mid finishing leafy yet rounded. Small bubbled carbonation accents qualities. Awesome beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 108 of 110 tasted blind, courtesy of cptnspeed1. Thanks Brad! Pale yellow pour with a thin white head. Nose is floral, with white pepper, pale malt, and nice dryness. Taste is pretty dry and oaky, with floral notes, a little spiciness, and a dry, lightly astringent finish. Herbal hopping. Thin and well-carbonated. Good stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL thanks to brainlair. Bottle #40 of 110. Brian is the man! Pours a low haze, glowing golden. Medium buttermilk foam. Okay retention. Nose is excellent: buttercream, lemon/lime, flowers, mild spices. Taste is quite tangy, excellent subtle buttercream, spices, rich doughy malt. This is really amazing, super soft. Palate is as quenching as lime Gatorade. Perfect for saison, thirst quenching. A real treat! Palate shows a lot of Hill Farmstead level Hawaiian sweet roll, soft dough, and light hoppiness. Wow. This is proof that Upright has some Tired Hands/Hill Farmstead level brewing talent.
