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

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.
