COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s Note: Rebrewed in 2014 and billed as Double Wit with Ginger and Ginger Wit.

Another year, another batch of Fluxus has been brewed to mark the change and growth of Allagash Brewing. With a new and different recipe, our 2008 batch is a double white beer brewed with spices and fresh grated ginger. A double white beer calls for twice the amount of malted and raw wheat, which casts an elegant cloudiness over this mango-colored beer. The aroma boasts of herbal and minty notes, as well as hints of clove and candied ginger. Fluxus offers a perfectly balanced flavor with a warm, clean finish and a lingering spiciness.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 1, 2008
750ml bottle. Poured a hazy yellow color. The head was white with good retention. Some lace was left behind on the glass at the end. Attractive aroma of flower blossom, sweet orange marmalade, lime, and coriander. Medium bodied and semi-sweet with a light chalky feel. Well orchestrated melange of flavors including the likes of citrus fruits (orange and lime), coriander, peach pasty, and a dash of powdered sugar. Delicious. I prefered the this one to the ’07 Fluxus.

Hazy yellow-gold with big, foamy white head / Light nose of banana and spice / Medium to full body, with creamy, sweet malts and a touch of dry hoppiness on the good finish / Bold flavors of banana, pear, clove, and coriander / Very good, a strong wit, improving markedly as it warms.

Pours a hazy soft orange. The head was creamy and white. The nose was really sweet and spicy, the yarrow is really prominent, alcohol is too. Smells similar to a winter warmer. Tastes really sweet, prominent yarrow, white pepper, yeasty, warm alcohol. Not bad, I just couldn’t do too much of it.
