COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Five is a farmhouse pale ale that was born after enjoying a few small production European brews that use a heavy hand of hops. Ours blends several Mt. Angel grown varieties to create a deep and complex flavor with an underlying earthiness. Pale fruit aromas created during the fermentation brighten the profile and bring the beer balance.
Malts: organic pale,organic caramel
Unmalted: rolled barley
Hops: willamette, liberty, perle
Also: xanthohumol (bottles only)

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2012
In bottle. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. A saison aroma of white pepper, lemon, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with heavy carbonation, moderate CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Lingering lemon, grass and saison yeast flavours. An excellent saison.

trevor211 (1408) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Golden pour with a dense, soapy head. Lovely nose. Lemongrass, mild hops, apricot, and a bit of yeast. Flavor brings in some bread and a bit of depth, emphasizing the lemon on the finish. Just lovely!

tpb3jd (46) - University Place, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2012
In the bottle from Tacoma World of Beers: Yeasty, lambic style aroma, and cloudy honey appearance; mildly hoppy taste but with a light sweetness, something that could work well on a hot summer day. I think the sour tones detract slightly, however.

dwyerpg (4827) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Great aroma of citrus hops, especially strong for a saison. This is a pretty good beer. Some hops but also that farmhouse quality. Pretty nice. But I’ll be drinking #7 most of the time.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 21, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark golden amber with a small white head that has good retention and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is grapefruit and orange hops as well as a bit of earthiness. The taste has quite a bit of sweetness with grapefruit and orange as well as a bit of caramel. The finish has a light bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Definitely way more sweetness than I enjoy in a saison. 7.4.7.3.14

JDBaker11058 (1517) - Maryland, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Appearance: hazy orange/gold, with two fingers of white head and generous lace rings. Aroma: smells bright, with notes of citrus (lemon and some orange), with a nice hit of sweet yeast; the traditional farmhouse saison funk is restrained, but present. Taste: exactly like a great saison combined with an excellent English pale ale. Finish: more hoppy as it warms, the finish is a nice balance between the sweey yeasty funk of saison with some graham cracker and earthy, mellow hops. Notes: Really excellent. Aroma and flavors were pretty sweet, but nicely balanced with the hops. Palate was a playful delight. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Tasted on 5/7/12 from a capped 750mL bottle brought back from Oregon for me by UncleJedi, thanks Jim. Pours hazy burnt orange with a thick white that leaves messy lace along the inside of the glass. The nose is spicy yeast with some pitted fruits, white peppercorn, a hint of bread, and very pleasant orange and citrus peel. The flavor is spicy and earthy up front, moving to the bread note, tons of citrus peel and pitted fruits, and finishes with nice bitterness. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long pitted fruit and bitter citrus peel finish.

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Pours ruby gold with a frothy two finger head. Strong citrus, particularly lemon, on the nose with a hint of pine. Well-rounded mouthfeel, though perhaps a bit too carbonated, which adds a bit of spice to the profile. Beer has a hint of sweetness, which is typical of most farmhouse style ales I’ve had so far, but this is much more hop forward. Small notes of yeast on repeat sips. Reminds me of a belgian IPA, only less yeast flavoring.

Damico (2868) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2012
Pours golden deep orange in color with an off white head. The aroma is my favorite part - it brings earthy sweet fresh spring notes, a sweet herbal backbone so pleasant in the nose. The flavor is not as sweet, slightly dry with herby grass notes on a perfectly, not over-carbonated body that goes down on the palate very smoothly.
