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.

On-tap at PP C Bad. Pours hazy straw yellow with a moderate white head, spider web lace. Smells subdued sugary and malty sweet, slight yeast, slight spice. Tastes light and sugary malty with some earthy hops and a little yeast and sweet spices as well. Overall light flavor but it hides the alcohol well. Medium, yet syrupy body with good carbonation.

On draft at Brouwer’s. Pours a deep, cloudy honey amber with a huge head. Earthy and fruity, with a ton of depth to the flavor. Yeast, ginger and other spices, citrus and lavender (we agonized for 20 minutes over what that flavor was - it’s definitely lavender). Almost like a good gingerbread, and possibly slightly medicinal, or bubble-gummish (one fellow taster exclaimed he found a note of Flintstones vitamins in it). Incredibly intriguing flavor - I liked it quite a bit.

draft @ uber - cloudy yellow with huge white head; aromas of bananas, ginger and candy; the ginger gives a nice edge to this one; rich texture and silky smooth; lots of spice and dry fruit in the flavors; very tasty

Bottle from Holiday Wine. There is a mild and tame aroma of some unknown spice and hint of ginger but to faint for me to rate this any higher then my nose is willing to score. Appears as a glowing yellowish white with firm creation of foam heading. The flavor is more apparent of ginger than the scent lead me to believe and there is also more spicing that is still hard to define but could be easily described as cinnamon, hazelnut or more obvious mint leaf.

Shared by Marcus. Ledger’s label said 0808, so assuming it’s 2008. Hazy orange-golden color with a frothy, lacing white head. Aroma is spicey! Quite strong - it’s gingery. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is ginger over malt. It’s a good ginger beer. Soft, smooth and lightly biting. Fantastic - but au fonde it’s a simple beer. Simple, but seductive. I want more.

marcus (6300) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
This golden ale poured with a bubbly white head and a bubble gum aroma. Same bubble gum flavor with a bitter finish and lots of carbonation. Heavily spiced, especially ginger.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Pours gold with a nice pillowy white head. Smells of sweet candi sugar, spice, some peppery splashes, pronounced floral hints. Tastes dry with a gingery bite. Great beer!

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2008
On tap: This poured a hazy golden in color with a head of fine white bubbles. The nose was extremely spicy espeically with ginger. The palate was crisp with nice concentration. It was very well-balanced and should improve with age.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Bottle from Pat-apostrophe-s Liquors in Porter, IN: This poured a hazy straw body topped briefly by a fizzy white head. The nose is spicy with ginger, chamomile, clove, ang ginseng. The flavor is not as spicy as the aroma suggests, a light and peppery sweetness with a touch of ginger. Tasty and refreshing with a well hidden alcohol presence.
