COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Interlude- somewhere between the leap and the landing. Its 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. Cest le gout, toujours! Its the taste that is always an adventure.

Quasimodo (217) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2013
A golden ale with moderate carbonation and no head retention. Soft aroma of fruity bubble gum with 50% more grape sticks! A soft cidery aroma was noticed by the end of the bottle. The flavor is clean and boozy with slightly woody red grape notes and a hint of malt. Smooth. Mild sweetness. Low bitterness. The brett provides a mild tangy quality, but no barnyard which is fine. Overall its good, but slightly disappointing given the price tag. It could be a little more robust in aroma and flavor, but it isnt weak. It does nice things to my throat and tongue and tastes better as I near the end of the bottle. Id probably like it more, if I had another bottle.

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a clear ruby yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is light pepper, straw, some light fruits, with notes of strawberries. Flavor is nice berry, with some tartness, light oak, vanilla. Very mellow, highly drinkable.

This beer tastes like the ocean just before dawn, full of hope and expectancy of the day to come. Be sure to enjoy this beer while not on a smelly San Francisco street! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Multi faceted. So many taste levels. Sour and sweet, bitter and hops. The wine barrel flavor really coMes out at the end. You taste the tannins and can feel the velvet grapes. A bit sour. Had in the bottle. 2013 Oct.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JAN 27, 2015
750ml bottle and tap. Pours a bright copper color with a quickly diminishing large white soapy head. Aroma has a nice balance of tart and sweet with notes of a sour grape and pear juice, a touch of dried fruit including prunes, apricot, and papaya, and sourdough bread.Taste is brett forward with earthy notes of barnyard, straw, and must along with a very faint tart acidity and flavor of lemongrass. Light wine barrel, malt and peppercorn presence in the finish. Light body, medium carbonation, dry.
