COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editorís 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.

Pours a hazy amber with not a whole lot of head. The ginger aroma is very evident right off the bat; reminds me of dark ín stormies. The problem with me (maybe just me) is that I drink a fair share of dark ín stormies & I donít really think that the combination of heavy ginger with the taste of a traditional Belgian strong ale goes very well. It does even out after a few sips, but itís just not for me. Finishes clean, & very well done, & an interesting beer, nonetheless.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - APR 24, 2009
Bottle. Aroma is spicy, wheaty, medium sweet. Pretty light golden body, thick white head. Flavorful wheat blend, spicy without the notorious Allagash tendency toward over-sweetness. This is my favorite of Allagashís offerings so far.

Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2009
UPDATED: APR 25, 2009 Oddly enough, at first whiff this hazy white beer smells almost chronically hoppy with a nice dose of coriander. The aroma is a real adventure as this beer breathes and warms up. Next it moves onto smelling like the perfect ginger bread house, and then medicinal like a honey ginger cough drop. All along the taste follows suit, although in a slightly muted way. This was a very interesting beer, mostly because of the aroma. The heavy-handed spicing became quite un-bearable as it warmed, which was unfortunate.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a hazy yellow with white fizzy head. Aroma of some farm house, bubble gum, some citrus. Flavor of some cinnamon, malt, fruity, some funk, semi-sweet. Mouthfeel is medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, nice stuff...
