This year’s Fluxus is brewed with our base malt, malted rye, and malted wheat, then hopped with noble hops before fresh ginger root is added in the whirlpool. Following fermentation, the beer is partially aged in oak gin barrels previously used for Barr Hill Tom Cat Gin. The result is a highly aromatic saison with overtones of ginger and botanicals, a hint of vanilla in the flavor, and a vibrant finish.

oobawa (1973) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 22, 2018
Remarkably subtle and light for such a big saison, with a modest vanilla-clove sweetness accented by ginger and lemon notes. Grows slightly funky and tart on the finish, with a bright oaked herbaceous vein accenting the lingering yeasty fade. Pours a gorgeous straw gold with a giant white head and infinite lacing. Nose is yeast, oak, and gin. Sparkly texture is good but a tad too carbonated for such a potent farmhouse ale. Tasty.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 This beer is surprisingly sweet and mellow, after an early spout of carbonation and tang gives way to a very satisfying drink. Doesn’t taste 8.5 alc.
