So many variations of Seven!

I love how Upright Brewing has been doing so many one-offs using Seven as the base beer. Seven is my favorite year-round offering from Upright, so things can only get better from there right?

Description: Barrel aged 14 months with brettanomyces

Beer: Barrel aged Seven

Brewery: Upright Brewing

Style: Saison

ABV: 8.8%

Location: Portland, OR

Appearance: Bright gold with no head, does have large bubbles that appear at the surface every now and then though

Aroma: Lots of fruit, some earthy funk from the brett, and a little bit of yeast. This beer smells absolutely fantastic!

Taste: Some nice tartness up front, with a lot of peach following up? It reminds me of a very light version of Fantasia, which is my favorite offering from Upright to date. I also get some oak from the barrel aging as well as a little bit of grassy flavor.

Mouthfeel: Light with medium carbonation. Feels nice and refreshing. I might have to save my last bottle for a hot day in the summer.

Drinkability: I’m very glad I have a bomber to finish, but I’m very sad that I only have one more bomber before it’s all gone. I could drink this all day.

Beer Advocate Grade: N/A

My Grade: A

Note: I thought Rose City Seven was my favorite iteration of Seven. I now stand corrected.
