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.

Cask at GBBF 2013, Olympia, London. A golden/orange coloured pour with virtually no head. Sour, yeasty aroma. Tastes sour, yeasty, dry, bitter. Not my kind of thing to be honest.

Complex fruity aroma with spice and a bit of funk. The flavor is fruity sweet up front with the spice and funk at the back. Pours hazy amber with a big fluffy head. The finish is dry with a nice lasting after taste. Very well done indeed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a great aroma, somewhat tart/vinegary. Much better in the taste thankfully, a good balance of hops and malt with a hint of citrus coming through and a pleasant mouthful.

the brett is quite apparent right away. a sweet note, some esters. slightly hazy dark straw yellow/white gold. modest head that fades down to lacing quickly. tangy and mildly sour, with a refreshingly light body. hops kick in at the finish. hops bitterness and the sourness marry nicely in the finish/aftertaste.
