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

LouisP (264) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2016
Une bière blonde aux traits orangés, avec une belle carbonatation et une petite effervescence. Au nez, beaucoup d’agrumes telles que le citron et les nectarines sont accompagnées par le côté fruité de la brett. Au goût, les agrumes bien présentes d’entrée de jeu, ce qui annonce un houblonnage à froid on point. La brett est intéressante, subtile, avec un petit goût fruité et pas trop cuiré. La finale est sèche, amère, faisant contraste aux levures belges sucrées qui sont d’attaques tout au long de la dégustation. Franchement bien équilibré.

Flavor is very light sweet, light bitter, light funk, hint of tartness. Mineral water notes along with lemon zest and super clean Brett. Light plus body, really soft mouthfeel. Solid beer.
