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.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2007
2007 bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of light citrus, pepper and grassy dry hops. The next wave is a more mature vanilla, yeast, stonefruit, perhaps some cidery notes too, wickedly complex. Brilliant fluffy (yes I know its 9%) medium-bodied mouthful. Big jammy fruitiness in the flavour, not overwhelming, and well complemented by some bretty notes and a light-to-moderate tartness, a perfect balance of fresh herbal hops come though too. Finish is almost crisp, alcohol is not there at all. This blew me away, an outstanding beer.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2008
I would describe this beer as gueze light. aroma is full of brett and sourness, with fruit and oak in the backround. poured a golden color with good clarirty with amble head and carbonation. flavor is really nice, cross between a stong golden and gueze. sourness and brett dominate intially, but give way to lots of earliness and a spicy backround. full nicely carbonated and digestiable in the mouth. Another excellent beer by Allagash.

Draft @ Monks Cafe: This was part of PBW and the Brett Pack Dinner. Rob Todd told us a story about how this beer was a total mistake and was told he would never be able to produce this again. He has now produced around 6 batches, after discovering the Brett Yeast. This beer was a lighter shade of orange. The aroma was sour, citrus, hops, and oak. The flavor was smooth and delicious. Hints of wood, funk, dark fruit, sour, grapefruit, and a tiny bit of hops. Overall, an A++ beer from Allagash.

Five ounce sample at Beachwood BBQ Sour Fest. Pine sol aroma. Sour merlot dominates flavor, with hints of apricot also present.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2008
750ml. January 2007. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small bubbly white head. Aroma is lemony, subtly sour, touches of vanilla and hay and just a tiny bit of barnyard. Aroma in general is nice though subdued. Flavor is smooth and slightly peppery and estery at first - Orval comes to mind. Doughy and bready that leads to a pretty dry finish. Moderate funkiness, low level of tartness and acidity, high drinkability. Medium bodied. I cannot find any influence from the oak/wine. This earns marks for its drinkability. This is a good all around beer that is nice if not exceptional.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2006
Cleam amberish-yellow beer with creamy off white head. Aroma is fruity and soft lactic. In the nose the touches of peaches and apricots are working well with the fine hints of flowers and the wood accents. The taste is well balanced, and is a good comprmise with the fruity side and the wood. The lactic part is bringing a nice freshness in the brew.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2011
2009 bottle from Tripphop. Thanks! Bottle opens with a nice pop. Hazy, copper orange color with a small white head. Brett-filled aroma with some pineapple, and a strong wine character. Nice, not over powering, and enticing. Taste is slightly thin. Funky, fruity pineapple, some red grape character, and dry. Good stuff, but Id prefer to have some acidity here. Quick Edit: This really comes together more as it starts to warm up. A touch more acidic, more floral notes, the pineapple comes to the front on the flavor. This really is a damn good beer.

HeadyDE (727) - Delaware, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Draft offering..excited to try this one out..definite vinous..champagne like nose..with a hint of spice..some wild cherry as well..crisp acidity with notes of oak and fruit..quite tasty really enjoying the slight puckering of the sour intertwined with the Brett action underneath..abv is very well hidden and this was a very impressive offering..well done..worth seeking out and considering seeking out a bottle..even at the high price point to cellar..as the funk and Brett should become even more interesting with some age...

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - OCT 3, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Pours a gorgeous hazy orange marmalade color with a medium ivory head. Aroma is very nice; a little sour, very fruity, mildly spicy, with vinous notes. Flavor is initially just spicy and a little smoky, then opens up a little in the middle with fruit element. Ashy finish. Soft, velvety mouthfeel. I can dig this pretty easily. Overall, very good.
