COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Interlude- somewhere between the leap and the landing. It’s a jazz solo, the riffing, the unexpected improvisation. Rooted in a Belgian theme, Interlude soars from a second fermentation with our own Brettanomyces yeast. Then takes five in French oak wine barrels that once cellared fine Merlots and Sirahs. And then bottle conditioning. In all, an outrageous effort to make a bottle of beer. But then, if you prefer to swing with magnificent red wine notes and funky farmhouse flavors dancing in the undercurrents of a crisp, remarkable brew, then Interlude has that thing. C’est le gout, toujours! It’s the taste that is always an adventure.

ROBC3366 (515) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Amazing aroma of wine grapes and some vinous sour character. Sour is not in the flavor but in the aroma. Light in the carbonation but very complex and nice flavors. Some almost fruity flavors come through from the wood. Aroma is almost consecration like. And flavors great but lacks the sour of consecration ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This sour has a very pleasant aroma to it. You can really tell it sits in wine barrels as you really get a wine profile as you drink it. This sour has a funky finish to it and I mean that in a good way. If you like sours then give this one a try, you won’t be disappointed

2008 Bottle, thanks Mike! Hazy Amber, thin tan head. Nose is cherry Brett, vanilla, alcohol, nice caramel. Flavor follows, cherry, vanilla, caramel and some persisting booze. Finish is perhaps a bit thin from the alcohol but still Damn nice.

Not quite getting the hype here. A little thin but manages to hide the 9% extremely well. Really smooth but lacking slightly in the flavor department for me. Solid but a touch overrated in my opinion.

Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2013
Tap at Capones Annual Black Friday event, Norristown PA, 29/11/13. Lightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off white covering that dissipates to edgework. Nose is dark fruit, straw, lemon sherbet, bitter orange, brown sugar. Taste comprises tangy apricot, pineapple, tarte orange rind, citric dipped straw, light caramel notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonaion, dry closure with yeasty and bitter tropical notes in the finale. Decent tarte Belgian affair with a little booze, the 9% is well integrated.
