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)

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Neutral nose, faint grassiness. Light amber, copper with small head. A caramelly sweetness starts, turing into a floral hop flavor and bitter finish. Light body. An interesting ale, strange balance between malt and hops.

JohnnyJ (5069) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Bottle. Golden amber pour, with large frothy off-white head. Citrus, bready malt, light sweetness, fruit, and light pepper and herbalness. This is a nice saison, better than the 6 and 7.

2/5/11 notes: On tap. Tangerine peach, must and tea on nose. Flavor matches saison bready cobwebs with hoppy bitter flourishes, great balance. Bitter, leafy finish. Good!

Sammy (9972) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2011 Bomber at volo, 32 plus tax and tip. Barnyard aromas, that dissipitate so even pleasant by end of bottle. Big aggressive carbonation that keeps you burping as much as drinking. Very lacey. Citrus tastes and spicyness. Hops, but understated I taste the Williamete hibiscus. Sourness and hops grind down the palette.

Sampled on 1/29/2011. This saison pours a deep orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Large, make that freaking huge, sized white foamy head with a long lasting retention. The aroma is orange, fruity, yeasty, spicy and sweet. A medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity, sweet, orange and peaches and somewhat tart. The hops are floral and spicy. Nice carbonation. The tartness in the taste is not in the aroma. I do wonder if that tartness is supposed to be here or not, but I kind of like it, so I won’t investigate further. A light and refreshing saison, with a finishing tartness that tends to linger. There is a little bit of funkiness at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly tart and a little funky.

joeneugs (4584) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours dark orange with a giant cream colored head. The aroma is oranges, lemon and a hint of vanilla and spice. The flavor is wheaty, quite dry and tart with a big hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is a bit too frothy with lots of citrus peel and coriander.

ChainGangGuy (4595) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Appearance: Pours out a clouded, dark straw-hued body with hints of burnt orange and topped with a tall, expansive, off-white head. Smell: Upright Cinco smells of faintly bready malts, sliced orchard fruits, spices, moistened herbs, a spoonful of lemon meringue, and a hint of vanilla bean. Taste: Pale malts with a soft, bready barley character and hint of honey to it. Small sprinkling of cane sugar for added sweetness. Fruity touches of lemon, peach, pear, and even green apple. Teensy bit of vanilla. Spicy yeast character suggesting coriander accentuated by zesty, grassy hops with a medium degree of accumulating bitterness. Ample carbonation on the drying, floral, fruity finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: A keenly drinkable, tasty tipple. Do yourself a favor for once and snatch up a bottle (or five) when in the Portland area.
