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.

JAXSON (531) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2009 Pours a great hazy peach color. Aroma is brett, alot of oak and dry red wine. Flavor is really nice: more oak, peaches, red wine, with a great dry, tart finish. Peach skins and cherry skins. Younger bottles show more bready qualities, sourness increases quite a bit with age. This beer tastes alot like Russian River Temptation. Mouthfeel is creamy and lush. Loved it!

brigg (524) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2007
(750 ml bottle) Opaque orange body with thin off-white head that leaves lace on the glass . Aroma is medium sweet and tart; citrus, vinegar, wine, metallic. Flavor is very tart all the way with fruity, metallic taste, but with the alcohol becoming more apparent on the finish; finishes like a smooth red wine. Oak is present but very subdued and smooth. Medium bodied and slight effervescence. Very excellent.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2009 Dec 2007 bottle. pours a amber with very little head. aroma is more a sirah than anything else, with a little oak and sweetness as well. mouthful is almost champagne like with a softer fizz. it is hard to believe there is no grapes in the wurt. the oak jumps out when more time is placed between sips. very enjoyable... at $19 a bottle i was hoping this was epic, but i think i would buy this again... even at this ridicules price. 2009 bottling... just as good... mmmmm

Pours a cloudy amber color with a decent size white head. Aromas of sweet fruits,oak,and some alcohol. Sweet to bitter. Light to medium bodied. Would not buy again due to its $23 price tag. But overall a nice beer.

750ml. Bottle $13.99 Samís Downers Grove January 2007 Bottling Interlude poured a hazy copper that glowed orange when held to the light. A 1 finger white head formed on the pour that faded to a thin cap with chunky edges. Minimal slow rising carbonation bubbles. Leaves chunky drink lines after each sip. Scent begins with goldenrod and that barnyard funkiness. Mild tart cherries and a touch of lemony citrus. Maybe itís my imagination but when I take deep whiffs I pick up mild oak. Very complex aromas that Iíve only scratched the surface on. The flavor is more complex than the aroma. Things begin with a slight lemon rind bitterness. Mid palate I get hit with a wave of that funkiness along with hay. Mild citric flavors come through toward the end finishing up with orange rind and a solid hop snap on the swallow. Again, Iíve only scratched the surface on the complexity of flavors. Lighter body with a slight stickinesson the tongue. Mild alcohol on the swallow as this beer warms. The flavor makes this an easy drinker but the complex flavors will wear out the tastebuds. A truly complex beer with a great idea behind it. Iím looking forward to trying Allagashís other special releases. A really great concept behind this beer that I look forward to drinking again. 4/9/07

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2007
2006. Gold in color to the point of being orange, slightly hazy, lots of fat bubbles rising through the body, and a bone-white head that colladsed quickly. Nose is definite Brett...lots of bubblegum but somewhat unidimensional in that sense. Flavor has the Brettanomyces overtones of the aroma but with a nice, honey-like malt base and some definite clay-like earthiness not unlike a good red wine that shows its terroir.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - AUG 16, 2009
Cask @ GBBFí09. Hazy dark golden with barely no head but a thin veil. Strong and nice funky nose, vinous, wood and frui with some alcoholic hints. Flavour is sweet caramel, fruity with a lovely sourness, woody. A very nice brew indeed.

mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - DEC 24, 2009
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.

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
