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.

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 (2278) - 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.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2006
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.

aracauna (3187) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2006
This one pours a cloudy orange with no head. The aroma is green apples with orange juice. I picked up a bit of bread crusts in the flavor. Not really anywhere near as tart as I expected.

Shag (2655) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2006
A murky orange color. Strong malt vinegar, ginger, and spice aroma. The flavor is full of vinegar notes with a strong spiced apple presence. This bend itself toward the lambic side. Good shit, er beer.

Suttree (5379) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Cloudy copper, with a huge white head. Aroma of gingerbread and lemon. Very distinct notes of red wine and an earthy bitter finish. Maybe some sour funk, too, at the end. Sampled at Noogfest2
