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.

Very nice off-cloudy golden yellow. fizzy head fades fast slight fecal aroma, some golden crispy apple and head cheese golden apples and pears, porta john grape skins. Very tart, almost too sour but it’s quite nice. acetic notes hit at the back end. this reminds me more of a saison that got a nice lacto injection later in its life. I like it and wish I could craft one myself

Bottle (thanks to douglas88 for sharing)... Poured hazy, golden/light orange with a thin forming head. Actually not much going on with a head. But that’s alright. Awesome footy, cheesy, yeast funked aroma. Quite lovely actually. Sharp, full mouthfeel with some drying in the finish. Big, over-ripped fruits, stone fruits, with tart acidity and lots of that barnyard funk. Sharp, lemon citrus acidity. Extremely complex and a supper good sour beer. Loving this.

2007 Vintage

12/20/2010: Squatter’s Fifth Element... Aroma: Sight vinegar; floral; fruitiness hiding underneath. Appearance: Hazy pale yellow color; large puffy off-white head with a large amount of lacing. Flavor: Sour and almost puckering at first; vinegar; white cooking wine; yeasty middle; dry oaky finish; I suspect high alcohol, but it is well-hidden. Palate: Medium-light; smooth; nice mouthfeel. Overall: Pretty good sour.

750 mL corked and caged bottle (6.75% ABV). Rating #211 for this beer.

Funky like whoa, gueze-like barnyard profile. Really sour for a farmhouse. Right up my alley.

Bottle at Eric’s with some chill bros, courtesy of some Texas homies. Pour is hazy yellow with a small white head. Funky citrusy, light urine, lemon peel, doughy, basement, tropical fruits, and lightly floral aroma. Taste is big lemon peel, urine, bright, almost bitter grapefruit peel, straw, and peppery with a medium sour finish. Light body with soft carbonation. Really nice stuff, thanks man!

Bottle thanks to sledutah for SS, pours a cloudy golden/yellow with a small white head. Aroma of sweet funky yeast, tropical fruits, hay, with a nice musk. Taste is tart fruit and yeast, with a light sourness. A little lighter than I like but it’s actually hitting the spot on this humid night.

750ml bottle. Hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma is a brett, lacto, musty oak, light citrus hop and fruity. Flavor is tart lemon, sour, light malt and very well hidden alcohol. Light body with a dry finish. Really nice beer, good blend of yeast and bugs.
