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: cloudy; straw colored; 1 finger white head that receded to a thick ring; moderate lacing;

S: heavy clove; tart;

T: banana up front with clove in the background; they even out at mid-palate, but banana comes back strong at the finish; tartness build from mid-palate and last long after the swallow;

M: light bodied; moderate carbonation: dry;

O: would have liked less banana from the yeast and more citrus and apricot/peach; the dry finish was interesting;

Pours a golden color with a white head and good clarity. The aroma is sweet and fruity, with an earthy, almost spicy phenolic yeast element. The taste borders on tart with notes of citrus, green grape, honey, lavender, and white pepper. Finishes clean and even, semi dry. This is a very drinkable ale, hard to do a review on because it was gone so quick.
