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.

Pours yellowy gold with a minimal head. Aroma of earth, hay, pear, and mustard. Tastes of eath, mustard, old fruit, grass and hay. Finishes tart and earthy. Good, but predictable in its brettiness. Still, it’s really well made and I can’t help but enjoy it.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUN 7, 2009
750ml bottle. Hazy gold pour with a nice lacing white head. Sweet and spicy aroma, more spice and with that distinctive belgian yeast aroma. Odd flavor, not what I was expecting, very smooth, very creamy, slight spiceiness with a kind of stale hoppiness in the finish, pretty good, but not for the price.
