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)

In bottle; aroma was hoppy for sure, with some fruit notes. Taste was not what I expected, hoppy with some earthiness and quite dry. Not my kind of beer but OK

notalush (5000) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Tap at Upright - hazy light copper - nose of fruity fruity and citric American hops, crackery malts - flavor is crisp and crackery - lightly flinty - a touch of honey sweetness and toasted grain on the tail end - light spiciness from the yeast - dry, toasty, gingerbread finish, with some light estery character - an awesome brew.

J_man (734) - Tustin, California, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Aromas of grass, hay and pine. Hazy orange/tan with an off-white head. Definitely tasting a Saison barnyard funkiness that’s tempered by the roasted malt and grassy, herbacious hops. An underlying sourness, but this isn’t a "sour". Like a Saison crossed with an American pale ale. Some lemony/citrus notes and a clean, refreshing finish. This is a delicious farmhouse style ale that’s very easy to drink, but is not simplistic.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2011
bottle... bright and clear gold, great white lacing... the aroma and taste are both a very solid saison, exactly what you expect, floral, bitter, a bit of musk, not very sweet, gets much better as you drink, if it had a bit more of sourness would be world class

arminjewell (6434) - Hastings, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle thanks to DrBill, pour was hazy yellow with white head, aroma brought notes of fruity peach and pear, some slight spice and earth tones, biscuit and slight toffee notes in there as well, with a noticeable pepper component. Taste is a mix of slightly tart white fruit, hints of earth and sweet biscuit, some slight fruity notes balanced by a dry peppery component, finishing fairly dry, slightly sweet with a slight herbal quality.

cpetrone84 (1538) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Pours a dark cloudy amber with huge amounts of off white tight head. The nose has a vibrant farmhouse aroma, slightly peppery with some lemon notes towards the back. The taste doesn’t have quite the farmhouse punch the nose brought but definitely still there. Well balanced spice, notes of lemon back palate. Fairly crisp, maybe slightly dry, assertive carbonation, medium body. Very well balanced and tasty.

adnielsen (9470) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2011 Bottle @ bros house. Slightly hazy, slightly cloudy, fluorescent orange appearance with a cream colored nose. Slightly spicy, belgian yeasty, orange citrusy, a little bready nose. Somewhat bready yeasty, slightly thick, a bit citrusy, a touch tangy flavor. Really a nice beer.
