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.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 16, 2006
750 ml bottle, in an awesome trade from slob. Pours a hazy medium amber wit a slight ruddy tint and a small beigey head. Aroma features sour fruit, oak, along with a bit of funk and barnyard, but still some sweet notes - very attractive. Delicious sour-sweet, fruity and tannic, spicy and pepper, red wine notes, some good hoppiness and vinuous characteristics. Medium to full body with creamy carbonation.

750ml shared with clarkvv at The Sunset Grill, Boston. Nice aroma, some sour cherry, caramel and a woody character. Taste is quite woody and definitely has some bretty sourness, some cherry fruit once again noticed. Slightly tart/acidic mouthfeel.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2009 Pours a hazy amber color with a thin white head. Very good aroma and flavor of belgian funk with hops and apples. There is a white wine quality to it which is interesting, also the alcohol is not apparent, thereís also nutmeg and yeast. The palate is light and dry with soft carbonation. Very good.

Pailhead (4607) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2006
Bottle: Shared by Styles. Aroma of brett, apple, and a touch of alcohol. Pours a bright transparent golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a ring. Lots of apple in the flavor, at times sweet and cidery and other times sour apple. Light brett in the finish with some light woodiness. Very tastey.

BBB63 (5946) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2006
2005 bottle provided by Styles: Nice deep honey color with a small fizzy ring. I get brett, horse blanket funk, tart grape, clove, oak, and a bit phenolic on the nose. The taste is cider like at first, very fruity and woody. Get more yeast and malt notes towards the center before finishing with a major dose of brett twang. Very yummy and should only get better. The mouth feel is clean and refreshing, very enjoyable. Yep it is plambic in nature but I so love it. Gotta get me some more.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Brilliant peachy auburn. Nose very fruity, lots of candy sugars, some mild sourness/funkiness. Flavor is oaky, light funk, bit buttery, nice light Brett character. Really overly tart, the sugars completely vanish at the end, just far too sharp.

Kevin (2048) - New Mexico, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Bottle. Pours a red straw with a not very lasting head. Aroma is powdered jolly rancher, some barrel notes caramel red wine (damn that smells good, but I donít want to taste it) booze nose with cherry & vanilla tannic goodness with yeast. Wow the wine comes through, not in the best way, astringent yeast, then dry and bitter while not the greatest it still ainít bad and is drinkable. This is too dry and doesnít allow the flavors to merge. The wine taste fights the other boozy wood flavors. Some cherry & strawberry & honey are there but they are overshadowed. Too much wine taste that adversely affects this. Ap-4 ar-7 tas-6 pal-2 ov-13

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2007 Re:rate- On tap at Andyís, Allagash Promo night, nice suprise! Amber in color with some red highlights. medium off white head. In the nose, immediate notes of funky brett with oak and fruit notes- a great start for sure. Taste is funky-horseblanket, oak, alot of fruit character, some red wine tannins, grapes, rasberry. I got hints of sweetness, but the sour fruit character is definitely in the forefront. Finishes tart, lightly musty, and with lingering sour fruit.

2005 bottle courtesy of TurdFerguson and Beeryum: Pours a clear golden bronze with a nicely-lacing thin white head. Aroma of cheesy funk with a nice caramel malty character and some Belgian yeast. Starts semi-sweet, turning more dry, earthy and slightly floral with some good mild barnyard complexity. Finishes smooth and tart with nice lingering dry cheesiness that hides the alcohol very well.
