COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fifth Element was brewed December 2007 and laid down to age in oak barrels January 2008. It has light peach/fruit notes and a beautiful golden hue. High carbonation created during bottle conditioning gives it a champagne like texture on the pallet. It finishes slightly tart and cleansing.

Rating #25 of this amazing brew. Tahnks Dasilky1 via Footbalm for this gem. Pour is hazy bright amber with a big white champagne head to strong lace. Smells fucking beautiful. Nose is lightly sweet pineapple and high citrus. Clean high yeast and green grapes. Taste is great. Period. You have to get past the perfect nose to get to the first drink, and that ain’t easy. High funky tart yeast first turns quickly to high light pineapple. White grapesand light hay. Super long sweet lingering turns finally to a sharp bitter end. Lovely.

Bottle via footbalm. Someone said something about a gose a few ratings ago and that’s the first thing that popped into my head upon putting my nose up the glass...sea salted floral powder of slightly barny funk, pineapple, rich early 40s women’s perfume, and light and dry essence of orange. Pours a straw-like yellow, slightly hazed, and full, lacey, creamy looking slightly off-white head. Flavors are joyously juicy, tannic, tart, fruity, floral...strawberries, pineapple, tropical climate air...hey, do any of you guys remember Beatrix? Do you guys remember the old school Fantome winter...with the old label, before it was entitled "hiver"? Do you? Well, guess what..they’re both back and contained in this bottle. Really. This is how all saisons should be. Hey footbalm, I need a case. Asap.

courtesy of footbalm, thanks a ton on this one! nice salty saison! yummy! this kepyt reminding me of a gose with the salty profile. the oak adds nicely, though subtly. huge citrus force headed by grapefruit and lemon. this is def a different type of saison, great stuff, hope to get more!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 24, 2010
Bottle compliments of Eric: Pours a light hazy straw color with a nice tall white head. The nose is ripe with fruit; peach and pineapple immediately. A nice balance of sour and yeasty with a full bodied champagne style carbonation that adds to the components. Lots of cheese and barny notes as well. More of the fruit comes through in the tail. Fantastic saison!

Bottle shared by Shawn, thanks (and thanks to footbalm for trading to him):

Golden hue with a big fluffy head which left lovely lace upon the glass. The aroma has notes of wheat husks, slight lemon, floral and slight barnyard vapours, hint of pale malts and even some old hops. The taste is tart and acidic upfront with a moderate funky and barnyard tone. Very earthy and flowery with a slight woody and cardboardy finish. The mouth feel is one big knock against the brew, far too carbonated which was distracting IMO but that did make it quite refreshing. This is very nice and surprising, Would gladly try this again.

Bottle from footbalm- Thanks Eric! Pours a hazy golden yellow with a big foamy white head. aroma of grass, soap, a nice peach and lemon fruit note, along with some earth and dough notes. Flavor is a nice earthy lemony funk, a soft orval-like funkyiness. fair amount of carbonation. Nice beer! refreshing. would drink regularly.
