Notes/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.

Part of a birthday bottle package from my cousin Tim... thanks Timmer!

A: Nice creamy white cloud of head that subsides to a gentle lacing around the glass. Nice sticky-icky from start to finish.

S: Smells "funky," in the best of ways. I think this is where the Brett really comes out. Hits my salivary glands like a swift kick to the groin.

T: After that nice funky sour smell, it's really strange to NOT get the mouth-puckering deliciousness that usually follows. It was a pleasant surprise though, as this beer is crazy well-balanced. Slight citrus-tart with a nice hop presence.

M: Nice carbonation. Feels as a pale ale should, not heavy but has a presence.

O: Awesome.
