COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Interlude- somewhere between the leap and the landing. Itís 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. Cíest le gout, toujours! Itís the taste that is always an adventure.

Tart wine grape, heavy oak presence. Semisweet. Very reminiscent of wine. Hard to see how this doesnít go under Sour/Wild Ale.

Might have been a bit more boozey than the usual lunchtime beer, but the allure was too strong. Pours a lovely nearly clear pale with quickly dissipating yet lacing white head. Scent is sour grapes, earth, and spice. Flavor is a balanced bittersweet the whole way through. Lively fun on the tongue. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

Pours a nice orange haze with little head at all. Aroma is vinegar, sour cherry, hay, green apple. Taste is fantastic, just like the aroma but with slightly more barnyard in it, sour cherry, hay, vinegar, and a sweeter green apple. Is very palatable, more carbonation might make it more tart but that is unnecassary with the wine playing its part. Overall a fantastic beer.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with amber tints and a quickly dissipating thin off white head. Aroma is awesome. Barnyard funk, red wine, sour cherry and grass. Taste is very acidic, with notes of sour cherry, vinegar, sour apple, Jolly Ranchers and some barnyard funk. Medium sticky mouthfeel with strong carbonation. Hugely complex. Very nice.

Ruby amber pour with minimal head. Really nice brett sour from Allagash. Cherry skins, wet wood, toffee, raisins, and balsamic. Nice and tart with a bit of an odd sweetness on the finish. Still very good.

Bottle from a lovely beer and wine store in downtown Boston. 750ml. Snifter. Pours a golden apple juice color with a light haze. Very little to no head and no lacing. Aroma is sour apples, lemon zest, brett yeasts, wine barrel, farmhouse funk. The taste is sour apples and pears, lemon, brett, farmhouse funk, acidic, and green grapes.You get the wine barrel as well. Light body and heavy carbonation. Very dry, sour finish. Awesome beer.

On tap at Ellynís 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!

On tap. Dark yellow pour. Like Iím dehydrated. Aroma is bready and tart. Has a Granny Smith apple juice taste. Taste is Brett lemon pepper sour apples. Realt surprised thought this would be more Belgian. This is mild sour and Brett.
