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.

Aroma: Tart, Brett, kind of dusty. Strong sour flavor, with some sour apple fruit. Some earthy Brett flavor; not as prominent as in the aroma, though. Light malt flavor. Bottled 11/2012

750 ml corked and caged bottle from sledutah. The has dry, vinous, earthy acidity. Strong tartness. Heavy herbal notes. The taste is strongly acidic and herbal. Medium body and medium carbonation. Enjoyed it well enough.

Poured into a tall tulip, the appearance was a pure glazy pale orange color with a quickly dissipating finger’s worth of white foamy head that left some light speckled lacing. The aroma starts with a big sour to bitter juicy orange rind. Rustic funk with a light lemongrass smell. Extra refreshing citrus juicy pulp. The favor leads with a sour juicy citrus tart rind. Some bitterness (very lightly hopped). Lemongrass seems to escape from the flavor a bit. Mostly juicy citrus sour aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Mostly closer to the medium side. That juicy contour bangs some bitterness against the sour side to really nail down the harshness well, still, that harshness on my tongue seems to want to play but ends up smoothing out as well. Overall, wow, just wow. I am perfectly enthralled with this beer. Thank you so much, Craig aka Sledeutah! You are the man!

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.
