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.

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - MAR 14, 2007
750ml bottle.
Pours a hazy, fiery copper amber with a quickly building fizzy head that almost as quickly recedes to a 3-bubble layer. Aroma is grassy sour like a farmhouse ale with leafy, earthy hops, straw, and a substantial bit of sweet malty goodness. Flavor misses the mark a bit for me with a funky corn-adjunct-like sour-mash flavor that seemed out of place. Other flavors taking their turn were a subdued but prickly hop bitterness, grassy grains, clover, a touch of acetic acid and plenty of candy-sweet malts. Finishes with a full mouthfeel and a dancing, tingly palate. I wasn’t quite as wild about this beer as most other reviewers, but like just about everything else Allagash puts out, it’s a pretty solid hit.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2008
2007 vintage courtesy Petrucci914. Pours a hazy, deep amber color. Aroma is barnyard funk, with notes of straw, bread dough, oak, vanilla, fantastic. Flavor is balanced and refreshing. The oak really shines through, melding perfectly with the funk. Great bottle.

Peach amber red color. Light fresh fruit smells. A fruitty tartness with a slight bitter underneath. Wet leaving a light sticky coat behind.

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...

Bottle from Capone’s. Sour, Merlot aroma. Golden body with a hint of amber... thin head, lacing body... aged flavor that starts of sweet and finishes sour and dry... taste of merlot balanced with hops, overall very crisp

JAXSON (533) - 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 (528) - 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.

Tried it on tap at Smoky Oak Taproom. Just not having a good week with Belgians. Pours cloudy and light- taste sort of threw me off. I mean, I drink beer for the taste. Want my beer to taste like beer. A bit too out there for me. For the more adventurous types this one. Give them full marks for bottle conditioning- was the perfect amount of carbonation.

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 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.
