5th Element is Back!

Yup! One of our all-time favorite beers in the world is back, in all of it's glorious funkiness.

Pours a cloudy apricot/straw color with a fizzy white head that reduced to a thin froth. The nose has a bit a of barnyard funkiness to it with hints of lemon. The tastes starts with light citrus notes then transitions into tart green apples, peach and white pepper. Next comes a dry oakiness that compliments the tartness well. The finish is a combination a champagne like dryness and bitter florals.

Believe it or not we are in the finals of round one in the Utah Beer Challenge. Whew! At the end of voting on Thurs, we'll get a bracket up showing who moved on, while providing the broadest view of the remaining beers.

It's excellent. I had a bottle on Saturday and it might be my favorite. I think it's just a bit more tart than last years. Very drinkable.
