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: 50°F Recommended Serving Temp: 40-50°F

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2013 Draft at Roasthouse Pub in Frederick, MD. Served room-temp in a tumbler, golden color with white head. Aroma of light fruit, light spices, pale malt and funky Belgian yeast. Taste adds tartness, candy sugar sweetness, some pepper and vanilla and light hop bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, soft body with a dry finish. Very nice balance of all Belgian ale qualities, very enjoyable.

KyotoLefty (6174) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 6, 2013
2012 bottle. Nose of grapefruit, wheat, horse blanket. Cloud golden with a high, fine, head. Beautiful. Great fruit flavor, grapefruit, melon, grape. Ridiculously sofy palatte is impressive but gets irritating possibly. Delicious stuff, but after a while, so want more sour or mineral or something less than perfect.
