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

BreWedge (546) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAY 7, 2017
750 ml bottle from Jun 13 (drank May 17). Pours a light golden haze with a huge white head. Aromas are lemon and a light lactic acid sour as well as some alcohol asserting itself. Tastes are sour, dry, and earthy. A dry paper-like quality on the palate with a medium tart finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Apparence : Pratiquement aveugl� par le bouchon� sans y avoir touch�. Pourtant, aucun gush. Jaun�tre, bon col blanc, bonne r�tention, carbonatation rapide.
Nez Poire, pomme, levure poivr�e, citron, l�ger ��funk��.
Go�t: Entr�e sur les fruits mentionn�s au nez, l�aspect poivr� s�y m�lant par la suite, l�ger aspect funky ou fermier. Finale s�che, bien dos�e entre une les notes lactiques et l�amertume.
Sensation : Effervescence tr�s �lev�e, corps assez mince, l�ger piquant en bouche, bonne longueur.
Bref : Allagash conseille de la boire � l�int�rieur d�un an, ce que je ferai la prochaine fois. Les brettanomyces fruit�es ont pris le dessus sur la base malt�e et ont cr�� une effervescence trop importante � mon go�t. Ceci �tant dit, une fois repos�e, les flaveurs ressortent mieux, les gorg�es se terminent en invitant la suivante et on finit notre verre en se disant que c��tait une bi�re � la fois facile � boire, d�une bonne intensit� et offrant des ar�mes bien vari�s. � revisiter plus jeune pour encore plus de bonheur!

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of Brett, citrus, fruit, and dry yeast. Poured gold in color with a big, creamy, off-white head that lasted throughout. Lightly hazy. Very good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and slightly sour. Tastes of Brett, dry yeast, citrus, and some other beer I cannot identify. Medium body. Slick texture. Average carbonation. Sweet yeasty finish.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Draft at The Sunset Grill. Poured a cloudy light orange-yellow color. The head was white and left some lace on the glass. The aroma was fruit dominated with tart cherry and mango notes. Medium bodied with delicate acidity up front. I tasted mango, orange marmalade, white wine, and subdued baking spices. Pretty good.

Lubiere (14127) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2009
A golden ale with a thick creamy white. A sweetish malt aroma with corky Brett notes, berry notes, very pleasant. In mouth, a sweetish beer with berry notes, light Brett, a bit of honey, lightly oily mouthfeel, very nice. On tap at Map Room, Chicago, May 16 2009.

SDalkoholic (2395) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 30, 2009
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Poured with a thick topping of foam while the liquid is a pilsner like golden blonde color. There is a lot to say about the aroma since a wide variety of different elements come into play such as fresh ground pepper, coriander, tangerine, orange or lemon peel shavings as well as an zesty Irish springs soap scent. The flavor is soapy as well with a strong zest of soap and citrus peels ranging from orange to lime or even grapefruit. Truly interesting how these combinations of yeasts collide together and morph this Belgian ale into a Belgian on steroids yet there isn’t very high alcohol content to back it up.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Clear amber with a thin white head. Mild earthy barnyard aromas with corn flakes. Medium body. Nice flavor mirrors the aroma, with grainy pale and pils malts, corn flakes, and some mild barnyard piss and dung. Brett lite.

(draft) Small white head atop clear apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, Brett, wood, some cherry, light orange. Taste is moderately sweet, Brett, wood, cherry. Medium body, some stickiness, acidity. Not much different from many other Brett beers, but it’s good nonetheless.
