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.

Poured into a tulip, 11/12 vintage. 3.5 A: First pour was a nearly clear light orange color. Every pour since then has been progressively more cloudy as is expected in a bottle conditioned brew. One and a half fingers of foamy white head that doesn’t last very long, but does leave a decent amount of lacing. 3.75 S: Tart and funky nose. A lot of dusty, old wood with dry-rotten sweat socks. An almost acetic tartness. Just hints of wildflower herbalness. Hay and a small nondescript light fruitiness. 4.0 T: Taste is like the nose, but amplified five fold. Lots of dusty old woodiness, basement funk, and old crispy sweatsocks. Hay, light grassiness and herbal wildflower, hints of light fruits and honey. Acetic tartness. Very tasty. 3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a pleasant spritziness to it. Super smooth. 4.0 D: Quite a tasty brew. I can’t identify any faults. Give it a try.
