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.

Sour Brett aromas immediately greet the nose when you open this wild yeast sweetheart followed by light malt aromas and spicy hops.
It pours hazy straw to gold under a ferocious, fluffy, very finely bubbled persistent 3" foam cap. the cap slowly drops to a thick, lumpy mass.
Pale malt flavors with a touch of sweet balance the moderate lemony tartness dry out and recede into a medium hop bitterness on the finish. Hints of peach and other light fruits lurk behind the lemony tartness.
The intensely fine Brettanomyces driven carbonation gives the body an airy, moussey fee. Very refreshing and very drinkable. l
