Bottle shared by phaleslu. Poured a hazy dark yellow color with an average white frothy head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate yeasty and sweet floral aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium yeast sweet flavor with a smooth malt sweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.

750 ml bottle. I can’t remember where I got it, probably an old trade. Maybe from michael-pollack? Anyway, cheers to whoever sent it. Pours a hazy orange-amber with a finger of off-white head that laces the glass. Notes of caramel, earth, florals, leaves, toast, dried apricot, mild peppery spices, and a bit of farmhouse funk. The age is showing a little bit in the super dry maltiness and toned down funk and spice. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice.

750 ml bottle to taster (shared by phaleslu). Looks good; a cloudy amberish brown with off-white lacing. Smells solid; yeasty and malty. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. I get a touch of apple too. Enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: A toasted, dusty and a bit too sweet amber ale of some kind. A bit of a letdown.
How: Tap at Three Penny Taproom, Montpelier, VT.
The look: Mostly cloudy burnt orange body topped by a medium beige head with good retention.
In long: Discreet nose showing light notes of toasted hay and also a dustiness sensation (dusty rug). Taste is sponge candy, sweet citrus fruits juice, residual sugars, toasted hay, sawdust-like woody sensation, dried apples. Foamy mouthfeel with a lot of very soft bubbles. I really liked the mouthtfeel but that’s all I really liked in this beer. Not much complexity and too much of a toasted sugars sensation which didn’t work for the style. Also the drinkability was rather low, one 10oz glass was more than enough for me. Quite disappointing considering I usually like both this beer style and the brewery. Disappointing, and when I’m disappointed by a beer I feel like strangling a cute little cat, so brewers, I hope you heard what I just said, stop making disappointing beers or the kitten dies!

I’m not sold on this one. Unfortunately, I have not had the previous incarnations of Fluxus. It’s sweeter than I expected from a saison (French-style, duh) and I wish it tasted as complex and strong as it smells.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer appears clear and amber hued, with very minimal head, and virtually no lacing. The aroma consists of wine, barrels / wood, apples, and alcohol. The flavor is boozy, fruity, and sweet. Apples soaked in alcohol. The body is thin, with moderately low carbonation. Overall, a bit too boozy / hot, and generally out of balance. Not one of the better offerings from Allagash.
Serving type: on-tap
