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.

Great silly mouthfeel on this beer. However, the taste with its bold yeast strains is just a little too funky for me. It does start to mellow as it warms, but it's still a little wild for my liking. Which is a bit of a shame since I really like Allagash a lot. I may try this again since it did seem to almost grow on me as time went on. Still an excellent brewery that I want to continue exploring new beers with.
