358. Allagash Brewing Fluxus (2012)

This is the first year I have tried Allagash Fluxus but according to their site this beer changes each year. This years version has green and pink peppercorns in it.

Appearance is very similar to the past few beers from Allagash – orange with a nice white head. The head on this one was slightly thinner than some of the others but still a nice looking beer. The aroma has some spice and of course the typical Belgian yeast smell from Allagash beer. Taste is pleasant with lots of pepper and some coriander as well as a nice lingering bitterness. There is also a bit of funk with this beer to add another layer of complexity.

Finish is clean and the 750 ml bottle was gone fairly quickly. An enjoyable beer but not sure it was worth the money as I believe this was a $15+ bottle of beer.

The 2012 edition of this beer is brewed with green and pink peppercorns. This beer has a bit of everything with a nice amount of spice from the peppercorns, a bit of coriander and even a little bitterness. Overall a very complex and well constructed beer.
