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

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2009
Tap at Capone’s a week ago. Aroma sandy (what did I mean by that?) with lemon, wheat, and bretty notes. Flavor of wheat and grains with pineapple brett funk. Easy drinking. Didn’t really seem like a sour to me, just a bretted up Belgian. Either way, didn’t find it very special.

Aroma is sweet and mild with some tart aspects but not too powerful. Some malts and a touch of citrus. Taste is sweet and a bit dry. Not too much flavor.

Draft. Golden amber beer with an off-white head. Tart, bretty aroma. Tart, light fruit flavor with light malt and a bit of funk. Medium bodied. Funk lingers with earth and light tartness. Kind of a richer Ommaggeden.

After the cork prematurely ejected, it poured a golden yellow with a pillowy white head. Nose was bright and slightly citric, but almost completely dominated by brett and horse blanket. Taste was super dry and pretty much a one note horse blanket

Ungstrup (29081) - 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.
