COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a unfiltered dark yellow color with a fizzy white head. Has some lacing. Has hints of sour fruits, spices. Finishes with a tart taste on the tongue.

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

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 Sam’s 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 it’s my imagination but when I take deep whiffs I pick up mild oak. Very complex aromas that I’ve 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, I’ve 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. I’m looking forward to trying Allagash’s 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.

Cask @ GBBF’09. 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.

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.

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.
