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.

white tainted cloudy orange with thin but bright white head. big nose of spice, lots of corriander and pumpkin pie type spices and pretty sweet with maybe some fruit notes behind it, specifically apricot. extremely spicy flavors...the spice rack kitchen sink-type. sweet backdrop...very holiday like..like eggnog, almost. Im not a huge fan of spicy beers but at least here its the spices and most likely not the yeast causing those flavors as opposed to yeast and spice or just plain spicy yeast...this tastes like the yeast profile is rather tame but the added spices were plentiful in quantity...very pumpkin pie-like fruity/squash flavors...there seems to be adequate hoppy bitterness behind it, more so than your typical belgian wit...the alcohol heat is certainly felt but i think it works here

UPDATED: APR 22, 2009 On tap at Najas (considering it is august 08, I am assuming this is 2008. Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head and some splotchy lacing. Aroma of pepper, bay leaf ginger, some light fruit and slightly sour. Taste is pineapple, pear, pepper and giner. Water like mouthfeel with sharp bubbles. Have since had it in bottles.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Before leaving for Maine thought I’d drink another brew from Allagash. 10th Rating Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Pours gold with a bright white ring head that leaves a bit of lacing. Spiced herbal nose. Taste is sweet and light and nice with a big of coriander and a number of other interestingof characteristics. This is a really tasty light Belgian Strong with a lot of complexity.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2008
On tap at Beachwood BBQ. Mostly hazy, deep golden yellow color with a thick layer of frothy white head. Lots of freshly grated ginger in the aroma along with some mild clove phenol character. A creamy, doughy, wheat maltiness adds some soft sweetness to the nose to pleasantly balance the brightness of the ginger. Medium bodied, creamy carbonation with a soft, silky texture. A milky wheat sweetness comes out up front on the palate, followed quickly by some ginger spice and herbal coriander. Some orange citrus flavors also come out toward the backend. Not really light bodied, but the brightness of the flavors and smooth mouthfeel make this an enjoyable, refreshing summer drink nonetheless.

Wow....first bottle rating, bought in Chicago: Pour is dark hazed yellow with a thin big bubbled white head...smell is clove and ginger with some light herbal notes...taste is lightly sweet at first, with a strong herbal and spicy...anise, clove, coriander, lots of black and white pepper, and some pears...medium mouthfeel with a strongly spicy and peppery finish...this reminds me of the 10th anniversary, but spicier and not as delicious.
