Allagash Fluxus 2016 debuts, with gin & ginger

Allagash Fluxus 2016

Allagash Fluxus 2016 is ready for the public. The beer’s style changes annually, a commemoration of Allagash selling their first beer in 1995.

This year’s recipe is saison brewed with a plethora of Allagash base malt, including barley, rye, and wheat. After a heathy dosing of Noble hops, and ginger root, the beer was then partially aged in gin barrels. The barrels previously held Barr Hill Tom Cat Gin, made by Caledonia Spirits in Hardwick, Vermont.

The result is a highly aromatic saison with overtones of ginger and botanicals, a hint of vanilla in the flavor, and a vibrant finish.

Allagash Fluxus 2016 is a part of the brewery’s Tribute Series, with the likes of Hugh Malone, Victor and Victoria.
