Some fruitiness in the aroma. Orange-yellow; wuper cloudy. Wow this goes down smooth. The flavor is fruity, zesty, crisp and tasty. Really really good. MetalNHopHead (2127) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Seven is an odd Saison, for sure. With pale, pils, and munich malts, it almost has a lager-like taste.Yet, the Saison yeast makes a very full presence in the glass with a fair amount of funk and fruitiness. My favorite of Seven’s feature was its spiciness. The hops are sticky and herbal, while the yeast propels some clove and coriander esters. The bottle’s suggestion to pair this with spicy South Asian cuisine sounds spot-on. Hell, I might need to make that happen. Aquilo (658) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Clear golden color with a small sparkly head. Rich floral aroma of honeysuckle, rose, apricot, cedar, and a hint of sour cherry. Flavor is pleasantly sour, and the finish is wonderfully crisp. Fatehunter (2604) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Off the tap into a pint glass. One finger of head with opaque, dark orange colored body.
A fragrant aroma of orange and coriander.
The taste was great depth with lemon, orange and yeast. It’s bright and sunny.
The texture has a light fizz, with moderate carbonation and medium body.
This is one of the better saisons I’ve had. It is complex and balanced. Find it and drink it. Wombata (625) - Kobe, JAPAN - OCT 3, 2011
On Draft at P town brewpub 2009. Aroma: Very aromatic. Lemon, orange rind and floral hops
Flavor: Long citrus and lemon finish that has no harsh bitterness.
Comments: This was the best of the batch with definite complexity in aroma and flavor. Outstanding on draft. I found it very good from the bottle (about 38-9 points), though not this good.

750ml bottle passed around at the September BA tasting in Austin. Many thanks to sdawson for the hook-up in our trade!
Seven displays a bright tangerine body with caramel at its core. Hazy, but inviting, with a fat cap of manila foam that retains well and drapes sticky lacing all across the glass. Aroma? Spicy. Citrus zest, coriander, Soccer-Mom-fresh orange wedges, grains of paradise. Earthy, too, with a hint of funk and herbal hops. I could smell this one all day long...
The flavor is as rich as the aroma suggested. Seven is inviting, but deceptively simple in its profile, with orange peel and grapefruit leading the way. Vegetal & musty mid-palate with traces of white pepper. Finish is dry and spicy, while the overall body is creamy with a medium body and perfect carbonation level. Bottom line: delicious. I would gladly have this one again. Upright is not a brewery to be slept on. Get at ’em before the uber-geeks catch wind! KnutAlbert (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 11, 2011
Bottle at PApsø.
Funky aroma, lovely complex flavour. Tangerine, rhubarb, barn yard. Dry finish, the dryness is perfectly balanced versus the fruit. Travlr (25821) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2010
750 ml bottle courtesy of joel, thank you sir! Hazy golden color, huge fluffy white head. Aroma of dusty barnyards, lemon rind. Taste is very malty, lots of white bread, with a funky edge. Very nice. bhensonb (15617) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Capped 750 from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy light orange with a creamy 4 finger near white head. Aroma is spicy, fruity, citrusy and I think lightly earthy. Hope so! Flavor is nicely sour and earthy. A little yeast/must. Finishes with definite notes barnyard. It’s not all citrus - there’s other light fruit notes, but it’s sour. Most excellent aroma and flavor.
