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.

MJGG (951) - Montreal, Quebec, - AUG 26, 2012
Bouteille de 750 ml, 1 de 120. Arômes de brettanomyces rustiques, de fleurs et de chêne. Robe dorée et légèrement trouble, effervescence moyenne et légère dentelle. En bouche, les brettanomyces s’expriment bien, apportant des notes rustiques et de foin sec. Les fleurs, combinées au traitement en fût de chêne, contribuent une certaine astringence et un côté vaguement végétal (bien que plutôt agréable). Finale sèche présentant une légère acidité et une pointe d’alcool. Une création originale !

cpetrone84 (1533) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Pour is lightly hazed deep amber with a tight white head that lingers for a while. Nose is strong vinous grape, notes of floral aromas, a good bit of herbal tones, faint brett. Taste is strong grape notes, brett muddles the flavor mid palate, some citrus, notes of lime, a fair bit of bitterness in the finish. Light body, soft carb, a bit thin in the finish.

Reynolds314 (2440) - Connecticut, USA - APR 28, 2014
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.

Flavor explosion, stems. So many stems. Tons of flowers and rose flavors. Tart and richly complex. Absolutely amazing

Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2014
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!

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Sampled @ Dak’s Black Friday tasting. Generously Shared by Dak! Golden tangerine pour with an ivory cap that left significant lacing inside the glass. Quite floral nose with fresh baked sourdough, pepper, honey, and lemongrass showing. Spicy, slightly funky, earthy, fruity, and again floral in flavor as well. Extremely refreshing. Really good brew!

bvc (1161) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2013
750ml capped. Hazed orangish tinted golden with big tight head that settles down. Tart lemon, slight barrel, slight sweet floral, touch of white pepper and a hint of honey. Tart lemon and brett up front, moves into some tangy/sweet floral notes that don’t over power, does battle with the brett a bit. Finishes with tartness and linger soft floral character. Interesting and good.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Definitely get rose petal fruity notes almost berry like on the nose soft tanginess. Fruity barrel wood is there a little wine like. Hazy orange pour nice creamy white head and lace. Great looking. Tangy citrus and funky sourness. Little basement notes. Very soft rose petals underneath. Lingering wine barrel fruitiness. Tangy woody barrel finish. Nicely carbonated. Solid beer. "Meh" (Jon, 2006).

Bottle. 27/120. Pours a slightly cloudy orange copper color with a light white head. The aromatics include florals, spice, a little funkiness, and slight fruit. Medium mouthfeel. I don’t really pick an overwhelming barrel flavor but I think it imparts some of the earthy type notes. Fruit. The flowers really add some flavors. Tasty.
