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.

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 (7935) - 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.

JStax (2853) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2013
750 ml corked and caged bottle thanks to lukaduke. Thanks man! Pours a semihazy copper with a white head of foam. Fair retention. The aroma is somewhat tart, yeasty, oaky, and sweet. Tastes more sweet and oaky than anything. The wine comes across as a tannic finish. Medium to full bodied with a medium carbonation.

weihenweizen (1620) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Refrigerated 75 cl bottle poured into a trappist glass. Pours slightly hazy orangish amber with medium white head. Nice brett aroma, medium body, medium carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is fruit (pear and some orange), brett, some oak, some vinous flavors, and semi-dry finish. Good beer.

Alla spina. Birra di stampo belga arrichita con fermantazione con brettanomices. Di difficile catalogazione.

keanex (1388) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2013
October 2012 bottle (11 months old).
Appearance: The body is amber with a light haze. The head is short and thin with poor retention. This isn’t a very appealing beer.
Aroma: The aroma is slightly of red wine vinegar with hints of cherry and a backing of lightly tart lemon and leather, there are also hints of oak tannins and dry red wine. The aroma is mild, but smells nice.
Taste: The intro is of tannins, dry red wine and hints of alcohol, but it is taken over by leathery and dry Brett. Oak is big throughout, but not overbearing and the Brett has really taken hold. The finish is of Brett, alcohol and tannins, hints of cherry, with a light warming sensation lingering.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: I remember liking this a lot more, I remember a lot more fruitiness of cherries and a lot more sweetness along with hints of sour. I need to try this fresher, before the Brett has changed this too much. This is still a good beer, just not something I would pay $20 for in this state.

2011 bottle that I bought at the brewery then left in Harvard for 2 years before drinking. Strong, a bit too much of an alcohol flavor for me but a great light pink color, awesome Pinot oak aroma, and slight Brett funky sour kick ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by THE Minderbinder. Thanks, man. Pours a hazy orange with a head that I can’t remember. Aroma is really fruity, bretty and spicy. Taste is more on the fruit side with a slightly tart feel. Not bad at all!

Bottle (750 ml). 2012. Shared by minderbinder, thanks! Clear golden/orange with a small to medium white head and some lacing. Aroma of fruit salad, Belgian yeast, red wine, brettanomyces funk and light peppery notes. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with a ton of fruits, yeast, red wine, light tartness and light malty presence. Alcohol is well hidden. Light to medium body. Moderate to good carbonation. Dusty and winey mouthfeel. A bit tannic. Interesting fruity Belgian Strong Ale with a fun barrel treatment.
