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.

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

keanex (1503) - 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.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Hazy orange body with a thin, tan head that quickly dissipates into the ether. The aroma is fantastic! Sweet, fruity and full of yeasty ester goodness. Lovely Brett stylings of hay, mango, vanilla, honey, vanilla, oak, earthy Noble hop resin, fresh dough, sweet oranges and some light spice like grains of paradise. The body is lively and fairly smooth considering the ample carbonation. The flavor is sweet up front with layered malt smoothed by oak and vanilla. The Brett adds a fruity, tart yeast element before a rather pronounced hop bitterness at the end.
