Allagash Confluence Ale is created with a mixed fermentation; utilizing our house primary Belgian style yeast in combination with our proprietary Brettanomyces strain. The two yeast strains work in tandem creating a marriage between spice and fruit flavors that ultimately leave a lingering silky mouth feel. Confluence is brewed with a blend of both imported pilsner and domestic pale malts as well as a portion of caramel malt, resulting in a complex malty profile. Tettnang and East Kent Golding hops are added in the brew process to balance the intricate malty profile while adding a sweet and spicy citrus aroma. After fermentation, Confluence undergoes a lengthy aging process in stainless steel tanks to enhance the flavors. Prior to bottling, it is dry hopped with a Glacier hops, providing a pleasant balance of aromas. Confluence is then bottle conditioned and aged in our cellar prior to release.

2015 bottle. Gift from my brother. Lovely beer....somewhat clear-ish golden yellow pour, white head. Light mouthfeel, decent peppery spice feel to it. Didn’t get a ton of the Brett but still a very good Belgian ale.

Thanks to Blake for sharing! Poured slightly cloudy peach with a short white head. The aroma picked up juicy floral, fruity, and funky Brett over soft bread and fruity notes.. tangy and peppery on the back of the nose.. nice! The flavor found bready notes and a bit of caramel at the core.. very dry around with funky Brett, lemon rind, and cloves.. finished dry with a bunch more Brett. Light-medium bodied and very dry on the palate.. felt and flowed great!

Tap at Allagash. It pours cloudy gold with a thick white head. The nose is soft, bready, straw, hay, light funk, banana, cracker and clove rock. The taste is crisp, clean, bitter, alcohol, bready malt, funk, straw, light cinnamon, cardamom, wood and dried orange with a dry, spiced finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. I was a touch disappointed with this one. The alcohol plays too big a role in this one. OK.

From a corked and caged 750 into a wine glass. It pours...., well, like most of these Bretted beers, it’s nothing to look at. But it had a lot of frothy head and mild lacing. Great dank funky aroma! Mouthfeel is slightly too much carb, but workable. Taste is just brettsation! Very drinkable and a great melding of hopps and brett. Excellent beer!

Great beer. Goo balance. Not too sour. Not too funky. The Brett yeast comes through nicely. A beer you should drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a bright lemon yellow color with a good head. Aroma is hay, lemon, sour, tart, grass, mild hops, pear, honey, white grape. Taste is hay, hops, brett sour, grass, honey, pear. Overall a decent beer, very different, but the combo they went for isn’t extremely appealing to my palate.
