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)

Bottle: The aroma consists of musty lemon, floral notes, faint citrus, and yeast. It pours a a hazy dull orange with a large off-white head with good retention and nice webbing for lacing. The flavor starts lightly fruity with the slightest hint of honey and yeast. The finish has some light lemon, citrus, and faint floral notes. Light bodied with soft carbonation.

Leighton (14389) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2010
Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours hazy gold with a soft, white head. Aroma holds some biscuit malts, citrus and herbal hops. Sweet flavor with notes of lemon and bread, leading to a grassy bitterness. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Crisp finish with tight malts and some citrus notes. Nice.

GCBF 2010. Bright hazy yellow-orange. Very spicy nose, estery, citrus. Palate is light and lively, with a nice musty basement character underlying the spicy-wheaty-orange peel flavours. Tasty stuff.

3fourths (8639) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2010
draft. unfiltered amber. moderately creamy, mildly tart, light to medium bread, dusty but fresh with an unmistakable belgian/french farmhouse character. hoppy and snappy and dry; medium+ bitterness (similar to more new-world influenced hoppy belgian ales seen in recent years). medium+ acidity, light to medium esters. some green/vegetal hop flavors across mid-palate and finish. tight carbonation. dusty, dry, parched finish. the best of upright’s products.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2013 Re-rate: 75cl bottle courtesy of benzai @ RBBSG II. Dorée sur un trouble léger, col blanc. Arôme est fruité sur une dominance houblonnée et un profil grains sec. Palais est citronné, houblonné et herbacé restant assez tenace même avec une bouteille ayant déjà qcq années. Je retrouve ici un côté plus IPA dans l’approche avec un fini levure belge.

cheers to tpd975 for the share. light golden hue, thick white head. aroma, nice Belgian yeast saison, ample spices, grassy and floral scent.. flavors, Belgian yeast strain, light hops, moderate spices, highly sessionable, mild caramel, crystal / pale malts, and a faint herbal bitter finish. Another world class saison. 8-4-8-4-16

Really nice. Good mix of hoppy and saison together. They work well together here. Aroma isn’t powerful but the flavor is potent.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2010
In short: A very rustic Saison with too much of a weird spicy minerals flavor. Something wrong with my bottle (or the full batch)
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed with about 7 months of age (7 months after first bottle rating). Sent to me by after4ever. Thanks Tom.
The look: Cloudy golden-orange body topped by an enormous beige head with medium retention. Lots of lacings.
In long: Nose is very rustic, old dusty attic with rusting souvenirs. The taste is very very rustic and it also has a strong spicy minerals components that I’d describe as white pepper dissolved in mineral water. So strong this spicy mineral character that I’m not sure it was desired. Detracts from the beer drinkability and it feels like something went wrong. Also in there is dry bakery bread crust, grass, herbs, salt, crushed grains, dried fruits skin. Finish is mouth drying, as if the beer was salted. The more I drank the bottle the more that strange minerals/salt/white-pepper thing bothered me. The nice rustic character was not enough to save it. This was a big disappointment considering the other excellent Saisons in the Upright lineup. Not sure what went wrong with #5. I heard that Upright did not use the more classic roman numeral “V” because there is already TV series called “V” and they didn’t want a moron suing them because he blew-up his DVD player trying to play that beer. Only in America.

Draught at the brewery, dry hopped with Mt. Rainier hops. Hazy dark gold with a white head. Yeasty aroma with definitely french siason character. Hoppy but also worty. Bitter and hoppy flavor with herbal and lightly piney hop character. Fruity yeast, but dot distinct. Medium-light body with a sharp, bitter ending. I really don’t think the dry hops did anything for this, and it feels like it could use some age to round out.
