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.

drunken jerks... i dragged this back from the right coast... shared it on 1/25/2010. straw tinted golden yellow pour with a spotty white head. the best way to describe the aroma would be a mix of the asian and indian isles at the international market... man, this is weird... and pretty effen cool to smell... sweet curry powder, coriander!, ginger, turmeric, clove, cinnamon, orange peel, a dusty vacant store and pale malty sweetness. the flavor is quite yeasty and a smaller version of the aroma.... luckily , the curry is subdued. though there is an umami note which really comes out as it sits. light lemon-y finish combines with ample carbonation and a medium body to make this one crazy easy drinking beer... though not the best imperial wit it IS pretty friggin odd. 8/4/8/3/16/3.9

Bottle generously shared by daknole. Pours golden in color with a fluffy white head. Smells SPICEY. Loaded with curry and coriander in the nose. Tastes overwrought with further spice, orange peel, flower pistols, and brown sugar. No, thank you.

Clear golden. HUGE white head. Coriander bomb! Tons of freshly ground coriander and some cinnamon. Flavor is a bit sweet, spicy as hell and really smooth. Some yeasty notes and a bit fruity. Really well done beer. Oh yeah nbutler wanted me to let everyone know that this was a LIVE RATE.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden body with a white rocky head. Very spicy aroma, ginger root, cinnamon, thyme, and some spicy yeast notes. Fruity with peach and berry tones amongst a mild etoh warming. Nice ale, but quite expensive.

patrickfannon (1240) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Pours deep honey golden with a thin white head. Aroma of peppermint, clove, vanilla, hops, ginger, and sweet malts. Medium bodied with a sugary, tart mouthfeel. Clean, soft, tangy finish. Very good.

Elwood (3090) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Serving: 750 ml. bottle. Appearance: Cloudy, light orange color with a frothy, white head. Aroma: Honey, candy sugar, light wheat, floral notes, and orange blossoms. Very nice. Flavor: Lots of sweetness (a bit to much in fact), dry medicinal notes, orange, wheat, and ginger. Somehow the flavor profile never quite comes together. Palate: High carbonation with a medium-light, sticky mouthfeel and a medium, almost medicinal finish. Overall: This one kind of falls apart on me. Good nose, but the flavors just never seem to come together in the right way. Not recommended.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Pours a hazy golden orange color with a thin foamy off-white head that quickly fades. Not much in the way of lacing. Spicy floral aroma with some light crisp fruit notes and citrus peel presence. Crsip golden fruit flavor with a touch of floral hops and subtle spiciness. Orange peel is prominent with other light crisp fruit, mostly apple and pear. Alcohol very well masked and well balanced making it very quaffable. Slightly sweet with a bitter hoppy dry finish.
