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.

Beerdedone (3235) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a foamy pure white head that had good lacing and retention. Aroma was fresh ginger, coriander, orange peel, cloves and some wheaty malts. Flavor was soft and smooth and very well balanced with ginger, fruity citrus, sweet wheat, white pepper, orange zest and a hint of herbs with a silky smooth medium body and has a dry crisp finish. Well done allagash

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Poured cloudy yellow with a rocky white head that exploded out of the glass. Good lacing. Spicy sweet aroma packed with ginger, cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg, etc. Lemon zest and sweet yeast esters as well. Carbonated, but still heavy in the mouthfeel. The taste is outstanding. Pleasant yeast/banana flavors with orange and lemon zest blended with the lighter malt. Different spice combinations seemed to hit you, similar but never the same. A sweet honey and wheat finish that lingers. And have to agree with JohnGalt1, chamomile is present as well, or at least the spice combination resembles it. Loved it.

treadyroc (150) - St. Leonard, Maryland, USA - MAY 8, 2009
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.
