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.

On tap at Ellyn’s Tap & Grill in Glen Ellyn, IL., and dispensed to a fluted sampler showing a hazed but bright, golden color, with a frothy white layer, and spidery cling to the lacing. The nose was subtle, but pleasant funk & spice, pear, and light citrus. Light bodied, with nice effervescence, the taste offered some lemony tartness, finishing dryness, and boozy warmth. Very refined, and flavorful!

@ Green’s Discount Beverage / Columbia SC --- Appealing clear bourbon color with a head that quickly drops to the rim, no lace. Taste is sour ale that draws on dry red wine in the palate for a unique taste. Sour continues on through a lingering finish. This is not your typical brew - more like a barleywine than a Belgian. Recommended.
