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.

Not my fav at the rbwgjx 2013.....but clean and crisp, not really for an old girl beer rater.

Nice melange of fruits and funk. Acidity burns slightly in the back of the throat, but isn’t excessively harsh.

Rbwg thanks to who ever brought. Super hazy milky yellow. Saison earthy lemon drop. Very drinkable in large amounts.

750 ml. bottle. Thanks Dallas! Pours a hazy light gold with a decent white head. Aroma of lemons, funk, spice, and yeast. Taste is lemons, funk, malt, spice, and yeast. Nice tart, dry finish. Exceptional.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Vintage 06-11 bottle, shared by badnewsbeers. Hazy, straw-yellow body, thin ring of off-white carbonation. Sour, dusty nose with a peach/apricot sweetness and hints of spice. Sour body, a tad funky and cobwebby, with peach, peach pit, lemon, and grass. Pretty good.

750 ml bottle to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks douglas88). Looks good; a mostly transparent gold with foamy white lacing. Smells good too; semi-sweet, tart, oaky, and funky. Tastes just like it smells with a nice, wild mouthfeel. Delicious.

pushkinwow (1956) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2013
750ml bottle (although it said 8%) from a nice locals trade. Opened this not knowing anything about the beer and the first thing that greeted me after the hazy pale oragina with a white head was a surprising funk and sour aroma with a bit of grass. Continues with some brett, earthy, reminds me of an aged tangerine white balsamic I use for salad dressings. Mild carbonation, moderate body, tart, could benefit from a little more carbonation on the palate, becomes incredibly dry, becomes more sour throughout, hint of lemon, quite delicious and a great surprise. Seek this out.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. The smell is tart, fruits, wood, vanilla, yeast, and butter. The look is clear, golden in color, and has a white head. The taste is fruits, wood, tart, and good.

WINNER! Great awesomely tart and funky wild ale here. The flavors are fruity and rustic with a tart peach type flavor with some grapefruit and a really nice funky note. I loved this one.
