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.

A: A hazy yellow color, with a slight transparency but barely there, a nice frothy white head at the top that leaves a little bit of lacing around the glass.

S: Spice and citrus are very present up front, a little hint of brown sugar and bready nose as well.

T: A good tasting beer, hit with the bread and yeast right away, that washes away with a sweetness and bitterness from the fresh hops.

M: Light bodied, good amount of carbonation, dry finish.

O: Overall a good well balanced beer from Allagash, very relaxing brew, subtle with good flavors and a dry unique finish.
