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.

Split into snifters the pour produced a small white head on a nice orange yellow body which was cloudy. The first hit on my nose was slightly funky with a little oak. Followed up with some light citrus notes spice and yeast. Flavor was funky and that is what I like in a farmhouse, citrus sour and a hint of spice on the backend. Balanced out with enough malts sweetness to make it drinkable. The mouthfeel was medium to light with ample carbonation. One of my favorite Saison’s to date I enjoyed every drop and added it back to my wants. Tons of flavor and the oak age added a lot of interesting character to the brew.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is nice with a light grain note and a bit of acidity. Light citrus notes with a bit of pineapple, white grape and stone fruit. A medium light musty note. Pours a slightly hazy, bright yellow gold with a medium sized, moderately thick, fluffy, white head that recedes somewhat quickly to a thin film that lingers. Light lacing and small legs. Flavor is moderately acidic with a light grain note and a dry finish. Some light tropical fruit and stone fruit with moderate pineapple. Moderately strong musty note with some white wine grapes and must. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice farmhouse beer. Acidity isn’t too strong with nice fruit and must notes. Nice dry finish. Great complexity.
