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: 50F Recommended Serving Temp: 40-50F

Ungstrup (35679) - 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.

Whoa, this is good. Tried it from a bottle shared by OldStyleCubFan, but then had a full pour at Tylers two weeks later. Pours clear light golden with a lasting white head and nice lacing. Nose of brett and lemon and tons of fruit... more summery/tropical than expected. Not just lemon/citrus. Some bubblegum and apples and funky yeast. Lively palate. Nice and tart but with a dry finish. Reminded me of some Orvals Ive had, but with a bit heavier palate and fruitier notes. Im starting to think I might actually pay out close to $20 for a bottle.
