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.

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.

ROGUE (2182) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JUL 22, 2016
On tap at SLL tasting. Allagash Ginger Wit. Poured a cloudy, golden color with a foamy head that fell to a ring around the edges. Smell of strong ginger, citrus (orange), spice (pepper, coriander) along with light herbaceous and earthiness from the ginger. Taste has the ginger come on mildly at the start, but ends packing a punch! The ginger intensity builds, yet the citrus and spice flavors are not completely overwhelmed. It is a very fresh, earthy ginger flavor. More subtle flavors come in to play with pear and apple notes, a hint of banana, and spicy notes of coriander and peppercorns. Light in body, a little creamy, highly carbonated and crisp.

750 ml bottle from notes. Pours a hazy orange gold color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had doughy bread, Belgian yeast, big ginger, orange marmalade, citrus, some additional spices, hints of pepper, decent enough but at the time I thought this was overpriced.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Tap at boda in Portland. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft wheat and a bit of musk on the nose. Faint ginger and a bit of lemon on the nose, touches of banana and ginger. Sift spicy ginger into the finish, musk and Soft wheat. Faintly spicy ginger and s hit of musk. Long warm finish with a bit of musk asks hints of ginger. Lovely.

Tap at Sam’s. Pours a light hazy golden orange with a small steady white head. Nose is ginger, light Belgian yeast, little else. Flavor is similar. Pretty one-dimensional and boring for this rater.

crossovert (11348) - Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Draft. Cloudy pour. Nice spice with thirst quenching ginger and citrus. Drinks a lot easier than the above suggests.
