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.

Pours bright gold into a snifter. Bright white head recedes to skim surface and hug rim. Orange, ginger and funky alcohol aromas. Marshmallow upfront turning spicy cloves in the middle and orange citrus hop in the finish. Went great with traditional Swiss fondue.

What’s a double white? I never heard of a double white. Sort of like an Imperial Lite? Anyway, works better than it sounds. Good wheaty and gingery nose, great wheaty lacing. Fruity, peppery, clovey, and, of course, gingery taste. Served with dessert, which seemed like a very good idea at the time.

Boutip (4701) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle: Poured a cloudy bright yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of ginger and wheat with a slightly peppery yeast and some nice fruity ester. Taste is very refreshing with loads of ginger and wheat with some very nice fruity ester. Body is full with limited filtration and great carbonation with no signs of alcohol. Very well done with great refreshing taste but some real complexity.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2009
750mL bottle, from Capone’s (Norristown, PA). Pours hazy golden, capped with a large ivory head. Sharp, spicy aroma, with lots of ginger, coriander, white pepper, herbs wheat and yeast. Flavor is well balanced and nuanced, with ginger and apricot melding very nicely, backed up with coriander, yeast and tropical fruit. Finishes with spice, wheat and tropical fruit. Nice effort from Allagash.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 26, 2009
On tap at Stone. Hazy amber color, with a bright white head that reduced to thick lace. A hint of sourness on the nose, with vinegar and ginger. Yummy taste. Belgian yeasties are hiding in the flavor, along with a hoppiness. Creamy. A salivator for sure, and I like that sensation. It has a bitter crunchy finish. Very good.

Thank you, asheft
Pours straw-yellow with a slight haze. A small, creamy, white head. Aroma has brett, oranges, lots of ginger and wheaty malts. Light carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, apples abound with dry brett notes. A bit of oranges and a lot of ginger. Very fresh and drinkable.
