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.

Lukaduke (3089) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 24, 2013
2012 vintage. Pours a medium golden color with three fingers of thick white foam. the nose is bright with barnyard brett, rustic grain, spicy yeast esters and a touch of tropical fruit. The palate follows with great balance... almost too much balance as i want something to really take charge and say "whats up!" Great converstaion between traditional saison sensibilities and a wild brett fermented beer. Spicy tropical notes ride along with a rustic grainy fieldgrass notes. Quenching refreshing finish.

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2013
On tap at Victory Bar and Grill.
Appearance: Clear amber body with a thin white head, settling into a thick ring with a light coating.
Aroma: Rather light aroma, but complex. Floral, sweet orange, rustic earthiness, with hints of leather and play-doh. This smells very nice.
Taste: Refreshing! Mild malts with hints of sweet orange and light leather on the finish. This is balanced nicely.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, highly carbonated.
Overall: Good-great beer, but like most Allagash this has poor price to quality ratio. This is a beer worth drinking though.

Golden ale tastes like brie and butter like a non onion obatzer with some funk. Weird.

tmoreau (3919) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2013
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a snifter showing a hazed, gold color, with a modest, fluffy head of white foam that reduced gradually to a ring & film, and left some clingy ribbons of lacing. The nose was some under control yeasty funk, fruit, spice, sweetness, and subtle cookie/graham cracker. The flavor was similar notes plus some low bitterness and tartness. Lively carbonation and creamy smoothness to the mouthfeel helped project a fuller than medium body, as the finish was lightly sweet & moderately dry.

Shag (2879) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2013
This poured a cloudy golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some lemons, vinegar, and a bit of funk. Very bretty. The flavor contains some citrus and spices with only a slight sour flavor going on. This is a wild ale with training wheels but overall its very good.

Nocturne (1917) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
On tap at Mikkeller Bar SF. Slightly hazy gold with whipped white foam. Some lace initially. Honey and white grape aroma. I detect a lot of white grape/white wine within the taste profile. Finishes dry. Very refined but could stand to be a little more interesting.

1/3 pint, gravicask, Bires Sans Frontires at GBBF 2013. Fruit and farmyard smell. Flavours of mid-tart yeasty fruitiness and spices offset by caramel sweetness. Dry, tart and sweet ending. Well-made and fine bodied. Refreshing (London Olympia 14.08.2013).

This is amazing. Aroma has a very tart feel with cherries, raspberry and maybe blueberries. Light, tart sourness with tang. Pours red with decent head and lacing. Consistency on the thick side. Tap at Black Back Pub.
