COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Pours a hazy golden orange color with a big white head. The Fantasia character really comes through. Heavy on the peaches but still a nice oak aroma. A touch of tropical fruit, maybe some grass, and a nice lactic sourness. The lemon and peach flavors are quite pronounced and work very well. Some tropical fruits, a little melon, and good wood flavors are also present.

Yeah this is a fun beer. I think Paul shared this at Woodshop? Pours a yellow with a nice white head. Peaches, apricots, light spice, some yeasty notes in the nose. Flavor is dry with good doses of stone fruits, yeast and a bit of hints from the barrel. Nice!
