Pours a cloudy, gold color. 5/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, floral hops, citrus hops, yeast, slight alcohol, and a hint of earthy malt. Fits the style of a Saison / Farmhouse Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable dryness. Tastes of sweet malt, floral hops, citrus hops, yeast, slight alcohol, and a hint of earthy malt. Overall, slight dryness was beneficial, almost a Euro yeast flavor, great appearance, a refreshing Saison.

Way to much carbonation, head exploded out of every pour. Left sticky yeast chunks in my mouth the size of a marble.

Not sure if perhaps I got a bad bottle or a bad batch, but this beer was way over carbonated. Beer shot from the bottle on opening, so I let it settle for a while, then proceeded, but every pour resulted in a four inch head, even the last pour from the bottle. The taste was decent - root type bitter, which is unusual for a farmhouse style, and had a nice lingering earthy finish. I'll have to try this one again....in the meanwhile, I'd recommend the Four over the Five any day.

Just a beautiful beer. It's a close call between this beer and the 7 as to which is my favorite of Upright's number series, but fortunately the two are very different. This beer is just perfectly balanced. The hops are present, but in no way dominate, slight bitterness and a very dry, refreshing finish. I feel like I can drink this all day.
