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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 This ale is a fantastic meeting of beer and wine. As soon as you open a bottle, inhale the aroma and instantly you will detect the flavoring incorporated from the wine barrels. My only question about this beer is why has no one done this before and when are they going to do it again?

Cloudy golden. Medium head. Honestly smells like sausage that has been marinating in good wine. A little spiciness and lots of wine. Very unique yeast taste that I canít compare to any other beer Iíve tasted... The wine notes are prominent, but not overwhelming. Worth the money.

Thanks Dr. Bill. Pours with a slightly cloudy orange-amber body topped by a medium thick to thick head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is sour and tart with a note of lemon and a nice funk. The flavor is sour yet floral...it loses a lot in the flavor. Medium bodied, crisp and dry.
