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

On tap. Pours a faint golden color. Aroma is something Belgian yeast strain with a notable sourness to the end. Flavor is spices, maybe some coriander and a sourness in the middle that turns into more spice. Very cool.

Interesting but not quite as "wild" as Id hope. Murky gold pour w/ a thin white head & no lacing. The aroma is different & hard to decipher what stands out. The taste is spicy & finishes dry. Its decent but I dont get the hype!

Location: Draft at Cannibal, 7/14/14

Aroma: The nose is mix of some brett notes, yeast, spice, and some fruit
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a decent sized white head
Flavor: The flavor is along the same line, spice and funk mostly, with some fruity notes
Palate: The body is medium, it has a bit of stickiness, and a decently clean finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty nice one. There are some good bretty flavors here. Definitely worth checking out.

Light cloudy yellow, small tan head. Banana, bready notes. Quite bitter, transitioning into sour, sort of back of the mouth. Long dry finish. Pretty long finish, medium body. Light carbonation. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale gold color, lasting head, lacy. Full body, smooth texture, very flavorful, lingering palate. Very bitter but sweet foundation balances it perfectly. Complex and delicious flavors. Great beer, in its style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Draft at Julians, Providence. Pours a medium straw color, aromas are bright, citrus, grapefruit, crisp, laundry soap. Body light and fluffy, more like a saison than a golden ale, lovely finish, crisp and bright. Really tremendous for me.

Nice beer, but a touch too sweet for me. It almost felt like this was made sweet to try and fit to style, but I cant say I have drank anything in Belgium with this kind of sweetness. Id like to have it again with a bit of age on it, to see if the sweetness mellows with time.

jkwood04 (5368) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Sampled at the brewery. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some Brett dryness, floral hops, and pale malts with light notes of caramel. Flavor the same with hints of fruits. Average texture. Not a bad beer, but I sort of wish it was just Brett and the Belgian yeast was left out.

trapped (2682) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 20, 2014
Drought. Cloudy bright orange with smalll foamy white head, fruity aroma, high carbonation, sweetish spicy taste with bitter ending. Medium finish goor brew but I am sure I would enjoy it more if I had not had cold!
