COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editors 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.

mansquito (5592) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Blind Tiger, NYC tap ($7): Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is citrus, Belgian yeast, and a hint of ginger. Taste is subdued Belgian hops, bites of ginger, mild hop bite, citrusy fruitiness, and a spicy finish. Overall, this is pretty good. Tastes like an interesting Belgian Strong Ale. The heavy alcohol is well covered but noticeable in the heavier than normal body.

Hazy golden beer. Soft and dry palate. A little dry creamy malt. Sweetish grapefruit and orange and nicely judged spice. A touch of ginger I fancy and same with pepper. Joins up in to a nice spiced beer. Finishes is a tad over dry.

Little bit of head on the initial pour. Light golden color with decent carbonation. It has aged a bit. I smell pear, apples and cinnamon. I taste apples, cinnamon, brown sugar, slight wheat and lemon. Delicious beer highly recommended.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2011
Poured a hazy light yellow with little foam. Aroma is heavy on spice, marmelade, and some distinct clove. Taste up front has a good bit of clove, coriander, sweet malts and spices common to belgian yeast. Body is fairly light and the alcohol is mostly hidden under the spices. Carbonation is very soft. Quite pleasantly aged.
