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: pours straw in color; 2-3 finger eggshell frothy head
S: sweet subtle funk; sweet citrus, yeast. smells absolutely wonderful - just very subtle, light
T: sweet subtle tart; dry, clean. easy drinking. the funk is very light.
M: near perfect; crisp, light, refreshing, dry.
O: well crafted brew - if anything i'm curious to see how this ages, in hopes of the funk being amped.
