Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This year's Fluxus was brewed with Belgian pilsen malt, light munich, malted wheat and a variety of aromatic and colored malts. It was hopped using only Alsatian Brewers Gold . It was then fermented with our house yeast at a lower than typical temperature, resulting in a more subdued ester profile than expressed in our other house yeast beers. Primary fermentation was followed by a cold maturation or "garding" period of six weeks.
The resulting beer is a medium amber colored ale with a smooth lager quality. The aroma presents a complex earthiness and toasted grains, balanced by a fruity candied grape character. The full body highlights a rounded maltiness accentuated by both nutty notes, and spicy hop flavors. The finish is remarkably dry with a wine-like character and light tannins.

A - Hazy amber-orange with a finger of frothy tannish head. Fades fairly slowly.

S - Sweet grainy and bready malts, some biscuit, citrus peel, Belgian yeast, coriander, pepper, other spices, bit of farmhouse funk.

T - Sweet grainy, biscuit, and bready malts, lemon and other citrus zest, Belgian yeast, coriander, pepper, other spices, some farmhouse funk, a touch of tart green fruit.

M - Medium bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. Smooth with a estery, dry, and lightly sweet finish.

D - Great biere de garde. Really nice farmhouse character with great overall mouthfeel and body.

Got this in a BIF last fall, finally getting around to it. Into a large tulip.

A: Pours a nice ruddy brown with an enormous dense sand colored head that doesn't want to fade away. Slightly hazy. Excellent lacing. Really a nice looking beer.

S: Malty with a nice amount of spice and yeast esters. Really yeast forward.

T: Bready, caramel malts, and a much more subdued yeast profile than the nose leads on. Light bitterness finds its way into the back. I get some citrus/lemon from the hop profile as well. Interesting stuff.

M: Light and crisp, quite dry.

O: Pretty enjoyable, not the best of style but still a solid enjoyable beer.
