COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. ABV: 7.4% Original Gravity: 1064 Recommended Cellaring Temp: 50F Recommended Serving Temp: 40-50F

Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2009
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma has strong notes of peaches and other fruits, as well as quite a lot of spices - primarily coriander. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of peaches, spices, and some brettanomyces, leading to a dry, spicy, and slightly acidic finish.

Whoa, this is good. Tried it from a bottle shared by OldStyleCubFan, but then had a full pour at Tylers two weeks later. Pours clear light golden with a lasting white head and nice lacing. Nose of brett and lemon and tons of fruit... more summery/tropical than expected. Not just lemon/citrus. Some bubblegum and apples and funky yeast. Lively palate. Nice and tart but with a dry finish. Reminded me of some Orvals Ive had, but with a bit heavier palate and fruitier notes. Im starting to think I might actually pay out close to $20 for a bottle.

TURDFERGUSON (4010) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle shared by oscf. Thanks dude. Second time having this and it was just as good. This tastes similar to the first batch of interlude. As in, much more funky than the others. Fresh hops and tartness from the brett combine very nicely. lemony, bretty finish. Tasty, Id like a bottle for the cellar.

I wish this wasnt $17.99 I really do. Outstanding brett, beer experience. The aroma was perfection. The conditioning was spot on - vibrant and drinkable. The freshness of the tartness defines an excellent brett beer. Flavors of hay and grass intermingle wit ha soft sweetness. Wow. World class, if a bit aggressive. Fresh beyond compare (there with bits of floating debris in the billowing head!).
