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.

This is amazing. Aroma has a very tart feel with cherries, raspberry and maybe blueberries. Light, tart sourness with tang. Pours red with decent head and lacing. Consistency on the thick side. Tap at Black Back Pub.

Beese (2561) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2013
Cask at Great British Beer Festival 2013. Poured a hazy light orange with a thin white head. Aroma of bread, yeast and tart fruit. Flavours of sweet malts, but with some lactic acid giving it moderate sourness. Leaves with dry grains and some spice.

A taster at Nautica in Birch Harbor, ME. Hazy golden yellow with not much white head. Smells like a cough drop to me, with a fruity, medicinal quality on the palate... Is that the Brett? Interesting, but not my favorite thing... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a straw color, with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma had plenty of spicy yeast notes, very nice light funk notes. Flavor was dry, champagne-like, funk character. Crisp, tart. Pretty darn enjoyable.

prawlie (1447) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Third of a pint at the Great British Beer Festival 2013. Slightly hazey yellow-orange. Dry and hoppy, a bit English due to the Goldings. A touch floral, tasty.

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
