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

Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a very nice effervescent hazy reddish orange color with a 1 inch light tan head. Aroma is loads of fresh green fruits with a bit of barrely funk and a slight sweet tartiness. Flavor is full and refreshing with a mellow sourness, a good deal of funk, fresh fruits like pears and some citrus, a bit of oak and some tannins. Medium bodied with just a touch too much carbonation, it seems. Finishes deliciously dry.

cloudy amber color; fruity aroma; excellent mild, sour fruit flavor; maybe just a hint of red wine and oak; a fantastic beer

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 19, 2010
UPDATED: APR 23, 2010 On draft at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens for Oakquinox (Escondido, CA): Last beer of many for the night. Pours a slightly cloudy burnt orange with a light halo of bubbles at the top. Funk, fruit, berries, caramel malts, citrus hops, grape candy, and some horseblanket. Drinkability: A bit thin, and the palate needs more substance. But is refreshing and enjoyable, overall. Pairing: Fried comfort food. Rebuy: Yeah. #406 on 19042010, DG.

The aroma is heavy on the yeast, and quite sour - really nice. The flavor delivers less yeast, with a somewhat fruity oak taste, followed by a slight bitterness. Very good, and a rather remarkable progression from aroma to flavor to finish. Wow.

Interlude makes a cloudy concoction of grapefruit with a thin rocky head, like mold floating on a cigarette-laden rainwater ashtray. The fruit and vinegar aroma is very pleasant. It promises of a crisp and fruit body with alcohol highlights. The initial taste is a carbonated swig of liquid Juicy Fruit. The second taste, the one where you swish it around and really savor it, has an apple cider and vinegar flavor that is a bit disappointing. This is a nice solid beer but the slightly vinegar taste is not my style.

Cask at GBBF 2009: strong honeycomb flavor, oak and next to it very dominent sour funky flavor, cirtus and hay, a little vinous, not very good but decent.

lefossoyeur (465) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2010
2009 Vintage. pours a clear saturated golden, with a small white lace. Lovely nose, fruity some lactic-caprylic notes. Nice sourness bite, fruity, the oak is showing out nicely, in balance, some residual sweetness but alcohol very well hidden for 9,5%. Very good funky beer

From 750. Pours a deep amber orange with wispy off-white head. Nose is Brett, with light fruit undertones and a floral bouquet, like walking through a flower garden. Flavor starts sour and ends dry. In the foreground is more Brett, with wine in the background and light fruits underneath. Palate is wonderfully carbonated to let all the flavors dance together. Excellent.

NEBF I was very pleasantly surprised by this one. A wild yeast beer without the added fruit that one finds in Lindemans. It is nevertheless, quite lambic-like, sour, yeasty with good fruit notes. Very nice.

Cloudy amber pour. Acidic aroma similar to cider vinegar, note of orange zest. A midly sweet flavour coasts as it finishies with a warm note.
