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)

750ml champagne style bottle from 16th St. Liquors in West Vancouver. Pours a murky amber with pillowy head that laces nicely in the glass. Aroma is slightly bready with yeast, subtle hops and hint of farmhouse funk. Certainly delivers a lot of taste for the alcohol content. Slightly banana like notes mix well with hop tang and spicy, pepper notes. Some citrus evident as well. Finish is mildly smoky with good hop bitterness lingering on the tongue. The best of Upright’s beers I’ve had so far.

Mora2000 (5780) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2010
Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. This was sampled alongside Upright 4, 6 and 7. The beer pours a murky orange color with a large white head. The aroma is Belgian yeast with some orange citrus notes. The flavor starts off with heavy orange citrus then you get some Belgian funk before ending with grassy hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

mcberko (6696) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 16, 2010
Sampled at 16th St. Liquor Store, pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma of citrus and yeast, with some malty sweetness. Flavour is similar, with some coriander and hops on the finish. Very complex and creamy mouthful. Great one.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2010
Draft @ brewery; slight hazy blond with trace white head and minor lacing; aromas of citrus and dry hops; drinks with a bitter bite on first sip and finished with a nice fruity dryness; definitely more hoppy, dry and bitter than #4; nice grassy hops; light texture and very fresh and drinkable

(750ml bottle, courtesy of thirdeye11) Pours a hazy golden orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of herbs, florals, fruity, and perfume. Flavor of earth, herbs, florals, grass, and lemon with a dry finish.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 10, 2010
Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Pours with a deeper (than 4) golden body and a huge off-white head. Aroma is grassy, fruity, tangerine, perfume, stone fruit. Taste is tart, stonefruit and bitter. Less effervescent than 4. But still fizzy.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2010
Pours a hazy sunset-yellow with a huge thick white head and tonnes of lace. Aroma is full of white grape & malty sweetness - inviting! Good maltiness overrun by coriander, light sulfurous finish with a touch of hops, more white grapes, and a slight astringent flourish. Creamy body with great carbonation. Very enjoyable, however I would have preferred more hops and less coriander. Together with the creamy mouthfeel, I could swear this was more of a wit than a saison at times. Still very quaffable.

stchloe (793) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2010
A nice farmhouse saison style, with a good yeasty esterness that works with a light malty body, almost wheaty with a good mix of savory spiceness. Slight hop end rounds out the beer.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 Hazy gold, with a crazy ’ice-cream’ head ... looks fantastic. Nose is abundant with hops, a plethora of herbal/floral notes (think oregano, thyme, savory, pepper), and sits very nicely with the biscuit-like caramel malt backbone. Flavor reflects the nose ... fully and beautifully. Mouthfeel is moderate, and the finish has a nice lingering, hoppy balance to it. I paired this with some hearty bread, gruyere cheese, and maple roasted ham ... to great effect. This is a fantastic, rustic, hoppy saison. This farmhouse style ale is a real winner, packed with both bold flavor and subtle nuance ... and all at only 5.5%
