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.

fiulijn (15378) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2008
Corked bottle, vintage 2007
Hazy copper-amber color, shining; the foam is initially quite frothy, but reduces to a thin consistent layer. The aroma is immediately sour, some vinegar, sour apples, wood and a hint of wet cellar. Good mouthfeel, medium body strength, with dryish malt flavor, and a light woody acidity to make it more complex; there are even traces of ammonia. It has the right bitterness, and in the final there is a very light astringency too. Interesting.

yngwie (14338) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2007
Bottled at Københavnske Øldage. Golden-orange beer with an off-white head. Sourness, sweetness and spices on the nose. The flavor is sweet and spiced with a little sourness. Quite sticky and sweet and warming in the mouth. Nice fusion of sourness and sweetness. (070511)

harrisoni (14214) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2009
At GBBF 2009. Hazy brown gold, interesting rih sweet brown sugar aroma. That’s awful. Cereal, vinegar and way too strong.. Badly constructed with none of the elements harmonising.

Dedollewaitor (14156) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2007
34 US dollar bottle (75cl), Odense/Denmark. Amazing unclear orange with a red hew & fine lasting white head that drags handsome lacings. The aroma itself was teriffic. Oak, wood, yeast, alcohol, sugar, hops, vinous wine. Wonderful fruityness. Very smooth & soft body. The finish lasted like forever & gave a light warmth. So nice...

MiP (13836) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
Bottle, 2007, 9.5% at KØ07. Acidic and vinous aroma. Hazy dark orange colour. Small white head. The flavour is not as acidic as suggested by the aroma, but nice with some earth. Peppery aftertaste. Actually well-balanced in my opinion.

Travlr (13664) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 7, 2009
750 ml bottle, 2007, courtesy of Ken and Rick at Über in Seattle. Full bodied sweet sour Flemish red, in the style of Rodenbach, but less oaky. A nice one, if you like the style.

TBone (13118) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2009
Cask@GBBF. A bit murky amber color, not much head. Sour grapefruit nose. Very tart, grapefruit, lime, some strawberries too. Intensive beer. Nice alcoholic, a bit sweet, tart and hoppy aftertaste.

Oakes (12809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2006
Vibrant copper-amber colour, with haze. Nice woody, bretty smell to it. Big, fruity, woody, toasty character. Complex with late alcohol to round things out. Interesting brew. Sorry about the notes, I was enjoying it more than studying it. Some beers are just like that.
