This bottling represents the first time Upright has ever barrel aged the Five. It never struck me as a great candidate for maturation in oak, but after draining the Fantasia barrels it seemed like a good fit to refill them. The aromatics on the Five, both fermentation and hop-based, have pale stone fruit nuances that I knew would work well on top of the otherwise spent peaches still in the barrels. It was a bit of a trial, and only two casks were filled. After several months, the beer started tasting just like I had hoped, so the two were blended and either kegged or bottled for this Sole Composition release.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2016 Sampled from tap at ’Beertemple’. Clear, golden amber with a frothy, white head. Sourish-fruity, rather funky aroma of lemon, gooseberry, white grapes, oak and some straw. Moderately sour, fruity and funky taste of lemon, gooseberry, white grapes, oak and straw, followed by a medium long, rather tart and dry finish. Thin to medium body, spritzy and moderately astringent mouthfeel, flat. Nice, mellow and well-balanced sour ’Saison’.
