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

Hazy orange color with a good head when poured. Smells like a wild ale and starts to taste like one but that fades pretty fast. By smell I was expecting a beer like Victory's Helios but the taste fell flat. Still a pleasant ale to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[My bottle (750ml) shared w/ HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel] 2015 vintage. Pours a murky orange with sediment and an average size long-lasting frothy white head. No lacing. Really nice aroma of Brett, some hops, fruit and herbs. Flavour is also Bretty of course, also yeasty, herbal and fruity. Average to medium bodied. A bit one note but I like Bretty beers -- really good stuff.

rentonj7 (235) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2017
2016 (750oz) from the brewery. Slight bubbly head with a lot of carbonation in glass. Light golden (kind of like natural apple juice). Wood, apple, grass, yeast esthers, slight funk on nose. Taste reveals spiciness, stronger yeast presence, raspberry, lemon. Juicy mouthfeel that has an abrupt drying with a touch of bitter on finish. Delicate and delicious.

LouisP (338) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2016
Une bire blonde aux traits orangs, avec une belle carbonatation et une petite effervescence. Au nez, beaucoup dagrumes telles que le citron et les nectarines sont accompagnes par le ct fruit de la brett. Au got, les agrumes bien prsentes dentre de jeu, ce qui annonce un houblonnage froid on point. La brett est intressante, subtile, avec un petit got fruit et pas trop cuir. La finale est sche, amre, faisant contraste aux levures belges sucres qui sont dattaques tout au long de la dgustation. Franchement bien quilibr.

Tap. Pours clear golden, large white creamy head, long lasting with nice lacing. Aroma is a bit dusty, lemon, wood, Brett, basements, floral perfume. 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.

ROGUE (2205) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JUL 22, 2016
On tap at SLL tasting and 750ml bottle. Pours a golden color with a white head with plenty of lace. Earthly aromas with horse blanket, fruity esters, and hints of lemon. There are flavors from clean fruity esters, earthly elements due to the yeast, spices, pepper, and lemon. It has a moderate feel that is moderately bitter with some alcohol warming. There is a slight tart feel in the finish.
