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.

JAXSON (555) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2009
750ml bottle pours a sparkling golden with a huge pillowy head. Aroma is huge on the brett, with tropical fruits like mango. Really bretty in the mouth. I immediately harken back to the "Des Deux Bruers" beer which was an Allagash collaberation. This is much better and more refined, and it doesn’t reek of cat piss. A very attractive offering though I’m kind of turned off by the price.

Growler - a lovely hazy glowing golden beer - fizzy body - sticky lace - light sweetness and strong notes of mango and pineapple hit the nose first, followed by some mixed herbal and wildflower notes (lavender), and then the brett kicks it, adding light funky leather and sweaty character - the sweetness isn’t as high in the flavor as in the aroma, which is a good thing, but the mango and pineapple are there - however, the star of the show here is the moderate brett wildness and flinty character that pairs well with dry, bitter herbs, light spicy hops - crisp, dry finish - I would like to see more of the sweetness gone, leaving a bone dry beer, but I still really like this - I haven’t like their brett beers in the past, but this one is well done.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Sampled during Deliriumfest’s Graduation tasting in Maplewood, MN and shared by Deliriumfest. From a 22-oz bomber pours a hazy golden pale colored brew with a creamy white head that has some excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of dark pitted fruits, a hint of wheat malt, some yeast, candi sugar, and a touch of cloves. Taste is full bodied, some carbonation with flavors of yeast, golden grain malt with wheat, some pitted fruits, a hint of Brett, candi sugar and some citrus zest. Finish is semi-sweet with a white pepper and candi sugar aftertaste. Lots of character in this Belgian ale.

Tmoney99 (13609) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Bottle from Dilly Deli. Poured clear golden color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate brett, woody and tart citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth dry texture and lively carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sour & sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met with a standout change of pace brew.

OK, some free associations from my infancy. A beach ball. A Dog. A Log. A poodle. A Noodle. A doodle. ..

Bomber, shared - as a matter of fact the bottle exploded in my face. Pours a clear gold with a wispy white head that didn’t stick around for very long. Aroma is sweet, with malt, light fruit, citrus, and that recognizable Allagash yeast. The flavor, however, kicks it up a notch, with light fruit and citrus up front, a nice finish with detectable brett (in addition to the Allagash yeast) and a bit of malt sweetness in there as well. It’s lighter than most of the Allagash beers, but that’s part of what makes it so special.

Aroma and initial taste of brett. Light red sour. Excellent pour. Lacing. Wow. The brett is working on this one. Fantastic beer.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Draft – Max’s. Cloudy gold, creamy white head. Apple cinnamon and grassy apricot- pear aromas ride light undercurrents of bretty funk and yeast. Soft crisp fruity barnyard flavors balance on a touch of peppered honey, straw, and cheese. Quite complex as it nears room temp. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, fruity finish. Certainly worthy of your attention….
