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.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, - SEP 26, 2007
Bottle enjoyed with blackbread and aged camembert. Clear amber red with small cream colored head with good retention. Aroma of marzipan, decomposing apples and some balsamic vinegar balanced by sweet fruitiness. Very full flavoured and tart with remarkable bitterness. Almonds and alcohol leading to a dry and warming finish. Full mouth feel and soft delightful carbonation. Very interesting and tasty ale that could use more complexity in the flavor at first, but grows on you aas you get down the bottle. Good introduction to sour ales IMO.

2014 vintage. Pours a hazed orange color with a small white head. Aromas of wine and funk, some apple. Taste is semi sweet and lightly sour, some funk. Flavors of tart green apple, wine barrel, some sweaty brett. Finish is semi sweet and gently tart. Decent.

2015.03.29 - Allagash Interlude 2014 - on tap at Always Ron's. No long review. Drinkable but not my cup of tea. If the dominant taste is from the Brett then I may not be a Brett fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

En fût à la brasserie. Un liquide dorée foncée. Un nez de cidre de glace, de pomme, de pêche au caramel. Le nez est complexe et agréable. La bouche laisse perplexe avec des tanins quelque peu agressant en fin de bouche. Tout de même une très bonne bière.

Backlog. On tap at the Mellow Fellow in Truckee. Orange and clear appearance with a fully diminishing head. Funky yeast, fruity esters, mild tartness and Belgian notes. Medium to full body. Pretty fun to drink.

On tap at threes brewing in Brooklyn. Slightly spicy on the nose. Pours a nice dark Amber. Intensely fruity but also sour with a nice finish. Good. A bit overly fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from trade - thanks Blazay. Clear burnt amber in the glass, initially a big white head but doesn’t linger. Funky, estery yeast character coming off it - vinous, leathery, fruity - stone fruit, some raisins. Medium to light carbonation. Flavour is lightly tart, a big hum of honey, some oxidisation evident but not unpleasant, tropical fruit, pineapple, passion fruit but only very lightly, a touch of vanilla. A slightly tannic edge from the wood brings everything to a dry finish. The strength is there in the background but just adds to the beer. Complex and delicious

SlovakSniper (3621) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2015
Corps orangée et son anneau de mousse. Arômes et saveurs de salade fruitée avec des pêches, des fruits du verger, du fût de vin. Parfaite présence en bouche. Beau corps huileux. Finale sèche tannique. Une belle et grande maîtrise.

Alengrin (2863) - BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2015
Strong sour ale with loose, unstable, off-white head and hazy orange colour. Very estery, lightly funky and vinous aroma of lime, redcurrant, sherry, wet hay, tomato, apricot, white wine, leater, tobacco, horseblanket. Very vididly fruity taste, immediately sourish but with sweetness for balance, peach, sour berries, lemon and pineapple suggestions, also lactic acidity (sour cream), smooth caramelly malt basis, bit honeyish, very vinous finish with some warming alcohol, drying acidity and delicious woody tannins. Very good.

Bottle bought in SF in February 2014. (vintage 2013) Hazy amber with a small head. Vinous aroma of fruit, wood, light funk, yeast and red berries. Similar taste. Also oak and light caramel. Well done and nicely dinkable.

radarsock (1096) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Purchased at Sunset Grill, and consumed at the bar. $9.99 for the 750 mL bottle. To tulip, it pours a light carrot orange with which a fluffy white head 2 fingers in length stood.

From notes: tastes and smells of strawberries, champagne yeast, cotton, sweat, pilsner malt, tangelo meat, and young oak. Medium-bodied. A bite of acidity experienced by swallow.
Keep making similar stuff to this, and please do not deviate.
