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.

Courtesy of Milkmandan. This is a very odd beer but what seems to be an experiment has turned out to be a success. Interlude has one of the best aromas I have experienced in a beer. There is very strong cherry, wood, apples, and weird yeast and bacteria as if naturally fermented. Light red in color with thin foam. The beer is sour with light cherry, and gets more sour as it warms. Substantial body, and the high abv is completely hidden in the aroma and flavor. A great success.

Wow. Medium amber, hazy, nice head. Aromas of apple, oak, and faint sourness. Quite inviting to say the least. Flavor matches, but is far more complex than I can give it any justice to here. Cherry notes came out as well to play with the bacterial critters. The intermingling was fantastic. This ranks up there with the Russian River experiments in using brett. I was highly impressed.

A hazy golden/amber with light foam and a decent lacing. A nice cross aroma between green apples, citrus and light yeast. A flavor that crosses me up with sweet and sour kinda like a sweettart with alcohol. Just a slightly foamy palate but damn good overall.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2006
2005 vintage -- Thanks Kinz for sharing this beer at the "2nd Richmond Gathering". Awesome sour aroma, just about perfect. Nice ruby-gold bdoy with a light white head. Very surprising taste, mellow and sweet. Not at all like what the aroma would indicate, this is probably due to the oak ageing. Sweet fruity ending.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 27, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2006 Hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Sweet and quite sour aroma with some mild spice. Light souring with some sweet fruity flavors in the end. Thanks to Kinz for bringing this tasty brew to share.

jcr (2112) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Thick, murky golden orange pour topped with a soft white head. Strong nose of coriander, tart strawberries, spice and just a hint of band-aid and mustiness. The flavor is a mix of coriander and sour fruit that ends sour, peppery and dry. Notes of earthy mustiness are detectible. The palate is outstanding: crisp at first yielding to soft and creamy. An excellent Belgian strong ale.

This Belgian Ale pours a light amber color from a 750ml cork topped bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, touch of oak and funk. A medium bodied Belgian ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Lots of oak, and funky, some leather. Some apples as well. Touch of alcohol bite. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

I honestly did not get red wine - I got huge wave after wave of chalky, dusty, leathery brett. Sweet too - an interesting combination. Good and wicked powerful and went down fast. Hefty body, slick almost, which was a strange sensation with the dryness.
