COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rose City Seven is a special single cask batch of Upright’s year-round strong saison that was aged on a mix of hibiscus, rose hips and rose petals in a former Pinot Noir barrel. The finished beer, which yielded barely over four kegs, has a strong floral aroma that blends with Seven’s natural citric and spicy character.

Our entry to the organic fest this year. It spent several months in a barrel that housed our Billy the Mountain Old Ale which uses a strain of brettanomyces called claussenii, giving the beer a gentle acidity and some earthy notes to contrast the big floral component coming from hibiscus, rose hips and rose petals, all of which were added directly to the aging beer.

Bottle with a huge thanks to BoFnJackson. Upright does it again. I feel like Oregoners are reverse homering everything. This beer along with BA Flora Rustica are two of the best funky saisons ever. Super citrus forward with notes of lemon and lime and flowers and berries. Rustic dirty and funky with a great tartness. So glad i got to try this. I actually preferred it over Convivial Suarez side by side.

Pours bright copper amber with a decent white head and orange hue. Aroma brings that funky sweet yeast and acetone that I love on wild bottle like this. There is also a floral sense to it nicely blended in as well. Flavor is just as fantastic, bringing tart floral notes, literally flowers, zingy zest ending we’ll the palate. Fantastic!

TURDFERGUSON (3963) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle shared by Ucusty. Thanks Dave! Deep orange blonde, quite hazy, micro bubbled foamy white head. Nose is really nice and complex; lots of barnyard buggy funk, sweet and fresh floral and pleasant herbs, light ginger, tart clementines, grapefruit. Oh wow. Flavor is very nice as well, pillowy, doughy mouthfeel, lots of funk, fruit and floral herbaceous goodness. This series continues to impress. What a treat.

Pours a hazy golden with a light white head that leaves good lacing, Aroma is really nice with hibiscus and rose being felt. There are also some unidentified vegetal notes in there. Taste is really balanced between sweet and sour, feeling almost juicy. Overall this is a really great and perfumey beer, a masterful act!

UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 Tap @ Organic Brewers Fest... Poured amber, light red/pinkish with a whitish head. Nose was bretty, lactic, tangy, and floral. Ginger notes, floral, candied malts. A little warmth with a black pepper spice and a sour, acidic finish. Earthy, funky, and dry. This may be the best I’ve had from Upright so far.
