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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Hazy orange hued golden/copper with a veil of a white head that left no lacing.

S-Like a fruit bowl with notes of apricot, a hint of citrus, some dried pineapple and some mustiness.

T-Light, green apple, sour apricot with some citrus zip in the finish. Tart/sour "funky" aspect is quite light and may build with some aging.

M-Medium bodied mildly tart with good lingering flavours.

D-Nice, a mildly tart fruit bowl. Not overly complex and seems to be lacking something. Glad I was able to get this on tap and not pay $20+ for a bottle. It's nice but not that nice.

750mL bottle, corked & caged, $16.99 from Champanes in Warren, MI. When I twisted off the cage the cork popped out in an explosion, followed by a gush of foam. Even after sitting a while, each pour generates large pillows of rocky foam in each glass. The beer is crystal clear in the first pours, tending towards murky in final stretch due to yeasty sediment.

The beer smells really funky and sour, strongly similar to the nose of Orval, tart brett throughout. The taste isn't quite bracingly sour, but lives just about on that edge. Barnyard flavors (horseblanket, mustiness, etc) that hit the spot for me, also a light citrus in the bitter aftertaste, maybe not too far from lemons. Very good and easy to quaff. I love what Allagash does with wild ales, I just wish it were cheaper (along the lines of Jolly Pumpkin). Then again, Lost Abbey charges twice as much, so this may be a relatively pricey luxury for the foreseeable future.

Slightly hazey bronze and copper colored hue with an exuberant head that relinquishes to nothing after about ten minutes and a couple of sips. Good bubbling.

Earthy hops mixed with the yeast have a fresh Spring fruit field aroma. Add to that a nice toasted malt bill with bubbling carbonation.

Toasted and well carbonated melba toast and cut grass are upfront. Malted barely with bread toast and spring fruits and a splash of tartness. I would not think this is an American wild ale by taste alone. Still a good beer worth trying and sharing.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pushing more and more into the world of wine, the dry ales of Allagash force an incredible level of dryness, fruitiness and acidity that's description reads much more vinous than beer-like.

The ale pours with a sparkling light gold as it streams with expressive carbonation. Easily mistaken for champagne, its bright clarity pops with its slightly fizzy, slightly frothy effervescence. Its light and fluffy head is loosely knit and quickly succumbs to its acidity and its dry malt body. With little lace on the glass- the ale looks more like chardonnay than Belgian ale.

Its vibrant aroma is bountiful with tart white grape, apple, lime and a cork-like mustiness. Mild earthen tones of grass, leaf and dried citrus peels extend into a mild white pepper note. Its acidic character tickles the nose heading into that first sip.

Its cidery taste is dry and acute with green apple, white grapes, limes and grapefruit. Its short-lived bready sweetness is like water crackers that dissolve on the front of the tongue. Its acidic middle palate introduces those tart and under-ripened fruits and berries until the hoppy finish leads to mild spicy bitterness that trails with lemongrass and hay.

The ale bounces off the tongue with ease as its strong bubbles accents its dryness and forces a quick and assured finish, much sooner than the mouth prefers. This causes much of its exploration of taste to occur in aftertaste rather than its initial taste. As the ale evaporates off the palate, it finishes quick, clean and acidic; and with slight herbal astringency and mild powdery wood texture.

Forget champagne. For those special celebrations, reach for Confluence Ale instead. Its added earthen complexity makes for a greater culinary experience without sacrificing the bubbles, body or bounce.

A 750 mL bottle courtesy of Rochefortnh10.

A: The ale is a a pale straw/orange color, obscured by a touch of haze anda steady stream of carbonation. A finger of head was quick to whittle away to a constantly-replenished white band.

S: The aroma is a mild funkiness followed by sweet fruit. Lemon and apple with a touch of pepper and some grassiness. A lightly bretty finish.

T: A peppery heat starts things off right before a mustiness takes over. The sweetness from the nose is gone, replaced by a rather dry flavor that has only the barest of fruitiness. Grassy hops are present throughout but not too strong. I swished around a sip and found that more fruits emerged, apricot and pineapple are sparse but there. The peppery blast and and mustiness is a formidable combination.

M: The mouthfeel's wild flavor is the dominating aspect, creating some heat and a bone-dry taste. The fruits are hard to find but nice when they finally come around.

D: This one doesn't taste like 7+%. The heat and funk make me instinctively reach for another sip.

Out of a bomber this beer was a hazy, golden-orange color with two fingers of billowing head. The retention was good and the lacing good too. The aroma was complex and a little queer, leafy/grassy notes, sweet fruits (apples and pears) as well as the must of wild yeast. The flavors were similar with a strong emphasis on the Brettanomyces. The alcohol punch was also quite distinct but the fruit and must helped to conceal it. Earthiness and a good malt backbone helped to balance it all. Some lemon-like citrus notes appeared as it warmed up and the finish was dry and clean but a little awkward. The body was medium and the mouthfeel was pretty good but the carbonation remained pretty high throughout the whole sampling.

Poured clear golden color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate brett, woody and tart citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth dry texture and lively carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sour & sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met with a standout change of pace brew.

750mL bomber poured into a flute; March 2011 bottling

An extremely soft golden straw color with streams of tiny bubbles pushing north to a huge, meringue-like cap. Excellent retention and loads of sticky lace.

The aroma is of soft peaches, slightly tart lemons, apricots and even some pineapple and granny smith apples. At first, I thought the funk was a little light, but as this guy warmed, some band-aid aromas came out.

I still can't get over the thickness of this head. A giant ring of foam is stuck across the top of my glass. It looks awesome.

Tart lemons and granny smith apples come to forefront, with sweet pineapple and peach quickly in tow. Some acidic notes through the middle before a rush of saddle leather funk and dryness. The funk just sweeps in and leaves your mouth dry. No pucker, lightly tart.

A light medium body with high carbonation, but it works well. Smooth and creamy with a touch of effervescence.

This is a nice wild ale, but it definitely didn't blow me away. I guess it's balance is a detriment? Definitely well crafted and enjoyable. A very good beer.

A: Poured into an allagash glass with a leaf on the bottom. Bubble rise slowly and form a wispy head. Color or the beer is a golden light color with a slight hint of red.

S: Very fruity. Strawberry, grape, orange, cherry. Light but lots of complexity.

T: Initially a little musty like a belgian then a slight hit of fruit and a huge malt finish. It's a little too musty for me and doesn't hit very acutely.

M: Sits with a good body. But that must! Musty musty musty.... clean dry finish is very nice though.

I had high hope for this beer and with the smell I was expecting something more fruity in taste. The taste was overwhelmed by must (I do suppose it's a wild ale...) and I wasn't a big fan. Very nice finish though. Maybe worth checking out but not blowing my mind.

A: Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color. Thin line of bright white head. Leaves some lacing. Lots of carbonation. Pretty beer here.

S: Smells of Brett and some white grape. That barnyard funkiness. Also getting the other customary players, lemon and tart green apple. Doesn't smell overly aggressive on the sour side or anything.

T: Flavor follows the smell. On the tip of the tongue you get some hop character, light citrus hops. Middle of the mouth you get that Brett character. Lemons. Touch of pepper. Apples and citrus. Dry wine like finish.

M: Very carbed. Between light and medium.

Poured into an urthel tulip type glass.

Pours 1 finger of bright white head. Amazing retention. Probably the best I have ever seen. Nice splattered lace left as well. Color is a dark burnt orange.

Aoma: lemon, grassy hops, funky barnyard flavors, big brett notes as well. I also get yeast flavors and spices. Very solid beer.

Taste: Lots of spices, lemon, brett, grassy hops, some barnyard funk. A quite tasty beer and I almost gave it a 4.5.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, bubbly, and refreshing. Medium bodied with a wonderful amount of carbonation. Ends just slightly dry, but pretty clean.

Overall, I was very impressed with this allagash offering. This beer was well done. I am very impressed and it is very drinkable. This would be something I would definitely pick more up of.

GLASS: Lindemans Flute
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 55 degrees
VINTAGE: January 2009

CAUTION: I removed the cage from this 750ml and the cork just almost took my eye out. It exploded out of the bottle and started to gush. Fortunately, I only lost about a sip or two.
___

This looks more like a champagne than a beer, actually. It has a clear, golden color. Like I associate with with an asti spumante. When poured in to a flute, you get more head than liquid. As the head settles, over the next few minutes the liquid level rises somewhat. The lacing is spotty, almost chunky, and completely sticky.

It has a slight spumante-like sweetness to the nose. Lots of white grape notes here. A mild hint of brett funk is peaking through. A light tanginess. Light notes of granny smith apples and some almost ripened cherries. A good level of yeasty spiciness. Mild notes of a hayloft.

A nice level of fruitiness is what I notice first. Lots of orchard fruits in this one, especially apples and peaches. Nice yeast notes and a good touch of spices. It finishes with a decent amount of brett-inspired barnyard funk, which makes it a dry finish, indeed.

This has a medium body and a high level of carbonation. Just one more area that this resembles more of a champagne than a beer.
Not that that's a bad thing, at all.

This beer is very complex. It is also very smoothly balanced and quite tasty. Nicely easy-to-drink.
Allagash is a wonderful brewery, producing some very tasty beers.

On draft. Served in a 10 1/2 oz tulip glass for $7. From batch #1192.

A: Crystal clear and magnifying. Pale golden-honey colored body with a bright snow white long lasting head. I'm not surprised with the head retention since an insane amount of streamers rush endlessly to the top constantly adding to the cap. Lacing is beginning to stick in solid, monolithic sheets.

S: Bretty and funky mixed with some luscious tropical citrusy hops. This is one of the hoppier wild ales I've had. The description I'm looking at says that Confluence uses Dry Glacier hops. I'm assuming there are others as I get more citrus aromas than the earthiness that my hop guide suggests. Additional aromas of hay, barnyard and a tame funkiness.

T: A multitude of sweet grape and berry flavors. Soft oakiness. There is a hardly noticeable alcoholic warmth, which is somewhat surprising for me since I thought the brett would bury anything sub 10% easy.

M: Sweet front to mid-palate and then very dry at the end. Lightly acidic. The mouthfeel is too tame to be a stand out in this category. This beer would be however, an effective introduction to wild ales. And I bet wine drinkers would love this.

D: What I fault this brew for in the mouthfeel department aids in its drinkability. Since Confluence is not a palate crusher, a few glasses in a sitting would not be out of the question.

750ml bottle split three ways at The Trappist in Oakland. 2009 vintage.

A: Gusher of a bottle poured into an Allagash glass with a large white head that slowly reduced itself down into a thick fuzzy film on top the slight hazy glowing golden liquid. The film stuck around the whole beer through and left a few streaks of lace down the glass.
S: Notes of bright sweet fruits, fruit candy, yeast, brett and light sour notes. Sourness and barnyard funk are light and not very potent. Overall the scent is very fruity sweet and yeasty.
T: Wonderfully fruity and lightly sour. Not puckering by any means but it gives the beer a great flavor. I pickup hints of bubblegum and green apple flavored candy. Tons of sweet fruits. Very earthy and delicious.
M: Very dry finish with a fuzzy mouthfeel and medium-full body. Aftertaste has a light bitterness and touch of alcohol warmth and viscosity.
D: Delicious and refreshing with just the right amount of funk and earthy fruity flavors. A year has done well for this beer.

'09 vintage. Poured from a 750ml bottle to a 1 liter glass boot...which immediately filled up with head. Poured the rest into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a very clear yellow amber, but gets fairly cloudy if you let any of the sediment get into it. Head gets really really thick, as I noticed, but settles quickly enough, leaving small patches of lacing.

S - A very upfront wine grape aroma mixed with a brett funk, and an outlying smell of smarties candies. That's interesting.

T - sour wine grape permeates, backed by a nice malt foundation, ever so slight hop bitterness. The wild in this wild ale is king here, though it mellows quite a bit as it warms, turning into a very pleasant, malty sour ale.

M - Light on the palate with low carbonation, but my failure in keeping the head from overflowing might have taken some carbonation away.

Overall - A very good choice to pair with the speck (smoked German bacon) and rye toast I was eating. Will have to hunt down more of this and age it again, this time, for longer. Definitely recommended as a special occasion brew.

Poured from a bottle into my snifter

Appearance: Not much head, straw body.

Smell: Bready lemon. Some slight funk and slight banana. Hay.

Taste: Slightly tart citrus lemon. Some clove and a little spice from the alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied and very drinkable.

Overall: The only reason I pulled the trigger on this one is that Total Wine knocked the price down to $12 for a bomber. Which is fair IMO--not sure if it's worth having at $19.99. Either way, it's a well crafted beer and I would like to try other offerings from Allagash.

Had on tap @ Armsby Abbey.

A: Pasty white fizzy 1.5 finger head that fades slowly over a very hazy golden wheat colored beer.

N: Lots o Belgian wit aromas, with citrus, coriander, spices, lemon zest, some barnyard funk, biscuit, and more Belgian malts, and all with a little sour fruit.

T: More Barnyard funk to start, some yeasty flavors, but not too heavy for a wild. Pretty dry with more Belgian and biscuity malt flavors. Slight lemongrass and citrus with a little hoppy bitterness. A dry fluffy wit beer taste mostly with some added wild funk.

M: Medium but slightly watery with lots of carbonation (bottle condition has better carbonation though)

F: very dry and gets quite a bit of bitterness from some spicy hops that seem to really shine through on the finish. More lingering dry earthy barnyard funk, spicy with a little warming booze.

The beer pours a very strong and foamy clean white head. The head lasts a while and the lacing on the glass form a perfect ring around the inside of the glass. The beer itself is a clear yellowish copper. The beer smell is fairly complex with a hint of tartiness. The smell has bits of a bread smell from the malts. The tarty Brett smell is there as well and is slightly obscured by the white wine smell as well as the hops. The hops are fairly close to a slightly grassy smell and orangey smell. The white grapes smell makes it difficult to properly distinguish. The beer taste is different from the smell. The beer taste is primarily hops mixed with the Brett. The malts make an appearance as a backbone for the taste and balances out the hops and Brett. In addition to the hops, the beer also has a white wine taste to it with hints of citrus orange. The feels is fairly clean and goes down similar to water. The finish is fairly dry. Overall, a pretty good beer and one that I might get again.

A: Pours a hazy light golden reminiscent of many American wheats; atop this sits an incredible rocky and craterous (probably making that word up) head with plenty of lacing as it goes down.

S: A little bit of hay and funk and a slight acidic character. Some definite lemon and citrus characteristics along with hints of green apple peel.

T: Some bready biscuit malts backs up the rest of the flavors; odd to be able to taste this much malt in a wild ale, but not a bad thing at all. Hay, a bit of earth, and some nice funkiness. Not too much of a sour character. Lemon zest comes through as well.

M: Very nice and clean for all that it has going on. Plenty of carbonation and little to no alcohol flavor.

D: Nice all around. Not the best AWA that I've had, but nice and a little bit different.

2009 Release

A: The cork shot out of the neck of the bottle as soon as I loosened the cage, but no sign of gushing at all. The pour is a nice, clear golden yellow color with a huge white head.

S: Lightly bretty and quite fruity on the nose. Lots of apples, pineapples, peaches, a bit of lemon zest and some floral hop notes.

T: The flavor is quite earthy with the same fruity sweetness displayed in the nose. Lots of apples, pears, and peaches along with a slight yeasty spice ester. The beer is quite dry on the finish.

M: Highly carbonated with a medium body and a dry finish, despite a decent amount of sweetness.

D: Not my favorite wild ale, but certainly a different take on the style (read: not sour). A good fruitiness which I really enjoyed.
