From Allagash – 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.
Allagash Brewing – Allagash Confluence Vintage 2009 – On tap at Stone Sour Fest 2010 – 7.4% abv.
Appearance: Pours a pastel amber gold, with a thin spotty white film for head.
Aroma: Light banana and funk.
Taste: Diaper/bandaid and banana. Just industrial brett notes for me, nothing sour in the least (an observation made at Stone Sourfest).
Mouthfeel: Thin, sticky, moderate carbonation.
Overall: I was not impressed with this. If you are into that kind of a brett beer, you will like it.
