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)

dfearnley (1047) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle to tulip Fruity esters, pepper, a little barnyard and leaves and finally light yeast. Pours an opaque amber with a huge 4 cm creamy white head that soon reduces to 1 cm with lots of lacing. Taste is a touch of lemon, spruce, pine, a little wood, hay, and grass.

Yorker (1306) - Herning, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2014
75 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy golden with some sediment and a white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavour are herbs, yeast, spices, and citrus - with a slightly dry finish.

Ernest (6318) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with light notes of candy sugar, dried mango, fusel alcohol (insecticide). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. This is only my second experience with Upright, but both this and Four have kinda the same problem that No-Li’s beers do...the aromas are very light and are barely able to escape the glass. While this is slightly more aromatic in the hop department than Four, it has a surprising fusel note in the background so I can’t really score it higher. Bit too sweet and a touch flabby/syrupy as well. Quite disappointing for such a lauded brewer.

thomas15 (688) - USA - JAN 7, 2014
Aroma is sweet, fruity, melon, not very acidic nor musty. Very frothy white head a top a golden body. Opaque. Taste is initially honeyed melon, but the backend is piney bitter. A general yeasy mustiness occupies everything after the initial flavor. This is a great beer, but is as much pale ale as saison.

pushkinwow (2062) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2013
750ml bottle. Vibrant hazy amber with a creamy off white head. Light saison spice with some farmhouse and a pleasant mustiness, wet wool blanket, moderate carbonation and body, refreshing, slightly bitter, dry, nice crisp finish.

SlackerMads (1681) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle. Gusher. Unclear orange with a medium sized creamy white head showing good retention and lace. Flowery hops, herbal, dusty, light esters, zest, light white bread. Light/medium body, medium carbonation, light sweet, medium bitter, thin on the palate. Long dry and bitter finish. Like Upright Four a great table beer, this one being more dry and bitter and with less acidity.

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Bottled: unk Pours a light apricot with a central dome of fine off-white foam with a fine rim of the same. This doesn’t smell particularly hoppy, but grassy with some hints of metal and little bits of clay. Flavor is nice and sharp, a good balanced bitterness with some spicy character, nice catered yeast and a wee bit of tartness (faint lemon concentrate). Medium on full bodied with tight carb and a slick finish. Nice beer, but I feel like it could be better (fresher?). Serving type: bottle 09-21-2012

vyvvy (4080) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Pours cloudy orange with a huge beige head that’s got some staying power to it. The aroma has ripe peaches, pale malt, some minty hoppiness and a bit of pine. It has a medium body that starts smooth and then a lot of carbonation gives it a bit of a rougher feel. The taste has a juicy peach aspect to it, some light caramel malt, spiciness, funky/fruity Belgian yeast and has an overall dryness. The finish has piney, spicy and flowery hops added to the mix and they stay on the tongue for a while. Really nice saison.
