Notes/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, 2013
HF stem

A: Very pretty bright light yellow orange. Big fluffy bright white head, sticking around a while. 3 fingers. Lacing. High carbonation.

S: Getting a good amount of hops in the nose. Some melon. Some pine. Some white grape. Strangely like IPA.

T: Getting that hop bitterness up front. Right in tip of tongue. Mild. I guess I'm getting those stone fruits. Hard for me to place. Finish is fairly dry. Not as barnyard and funky as I was expecting from a saison.

M: Medium bodied.

This beer has a special place in my memory. Every time I drink this beer I have a great time, whether it's with a random co-worker, hanging out with my wife, or hearing hilarious stories from my brother-in-law.

The head on this bad boy resembles a sea of froth and clouds. The appearance of the beer is a beautiful amber with low carbonation.

I detect pear, orange, coriander, and hops in the nose. For a saison, this might be a bit too hop forward, but I tend to enjoy the combination here.

It is not as good as its counterpart, Four, but I have better memories with this beer.
