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.

Nice fruity Brett in the nose as well as some nice hop character. Def best fresh or with a couple years on it. Let the dry hops die out a little and the Brett take over more and increase complexity. Pours nice with a decent head. Interludes dry hopped cousin if you will.

Pours a hazy, golden color. Very much like a Belgian ale, with a clean, white, three-finger head. Smells like a dubbel almost - has that fruity, Belgian smell to it. Taste is like a mixture of 25% sour and 75% dubbel. There's a tiny, tiny hint of sour. But the beer is very light, has a very nice lacing on the glass as you drink it down. Very reminiscent of a dubbel, with the fruit taste. Very enjoyable beer - will definitely have again.
