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.

#300. Great aroma but the ABV cuts in on the taste slightly. The barrel aging comes on strong on the aroma, but is well balanced in the taste. Nice cola-ish aftertaste and sourness. The brett is quite mild and does not offer any of the more wild flavors usually associated with it. Nice, balanced, and impressive. Very pleased with this.

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

Rando7 (778) - Iowa, USA - MAY 30, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2010 2009 Bottle (from trade with jtclockwork) pour to Trappist glass. Dark amber with thin brief white head. Aroma sour and tart. Taste quite sour and citrusy, sour apples, funk., orange. Finish sour and tart. Alcohol disguised. I started drinking it too cold and it was sort of like bizarre orange/lemon juice. When it warmed up a bit it really became much more pleasant and complex. Still not something I’d want every day but pretty good.

Bottle. Decent but disappointing. Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is of sweet malts and slightly metallic. Maybe a hint of citrus from the hops. Flavor is mostly sweet malts with a tinge of citrusy hops. I don’t taste the oak wine barrels or the brett at all really. So decent but disappointing. Not complex at all.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2008 Pours an amber hue. Aroma is big fruit with a bit of citrus and yeast included as well. The taste itself is a roller-coaster ride from fruit to spice to yeast to malt to a slight, slight alcoholic finish. An outstanding beer.

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 @ Monk’s 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.

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.

Bebum (764) - USA - JAN 9, 2015
Amber, with orange/copper notes. Medium/full body, moderate flavor, plenty of heat, smooth, longish bitter-sweet finish. Tart, somewhat bitter, not too dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
