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.

Hazed peach body with a modest beige head. Seductive aroma hints of fruitiness as soon as the cork is removed. Notes of green apple, red grapes, kiwi, and strawberries are joined by oak tones and some subtle spices. Nice! Medium to light medium in body with zingy carbonation. Taste opens on a spicy note with a touch of hot alcohol. Brett notes quickly appear with a wet gravel taste and some funky wool. Underripe strawberry and kiwi provide fruit texture. Oak is subtle but noticed. Lemon pez candy and kiwi skin come back for the finish and aftertaste. Incredibly complex and one of the better efforts at an American wild ale.

Crisp, Dry and Glorious. The lack of tartness makes this a unique creation. The wood gives it texture and the brett some lively aroma. Every sip is perfectly in balance. The volume of ingredients doesnít overwhelm, but the refinement in the process makes this a jewel. Thank you BeerYum!

Bottle. Just reading my notes and remembering the beer makes me happy. Slightly hazy orange gold pour. Nice citrus and sweet malt aroma, with a good amount of other light fruits and some yeast. Similar flavors with some vinous tart notes and some light funky earthy yeasty notes that werenít there in the aroma. Tart dry finish, a tad acidic. This was a very good beer.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 14, 2009
On tap at Novare Res. Pours a dark amber with a white quickly disappearing head. The interlude is a mildly sour and sweet grape-like flavor. I like what this beer does, but itís a little simple compared to the other beers in this lineup.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2007
bottle, 2006. Pours a hazy amber color with a soapy white head. Aroma is decent - brett, orange peel, green pepper, slight spiciness, interesting light malt backbone that adds a pleasant sweetness. I thought this beer was way to acidic at first, but it grew on me. Lots of apple and grapefruit in the flavor - thereís a decent spicy component, but it seems to block some of the other complexities here. I can hardly taste any oak, and I donít get any red wine flavors either, but maybe thatís a good thing. Decent finish, I wish there was a bit more bitterness, but that spiciness dominates. Overall, not bad, but not worth what I paid for it. Worth having once.

2006 bottle, courtesy of Degarth. Thanks, bro.

Pours a golden amber, with a small, long lasting, swirly off white head. Very nice lacing on the glass. Very creamy appearance to the head. Aroma of Belgian funk, driet fruits, banana, brett. Continuous C02 release from the bottom of the glass. Fore of the tongue is tart, slightly to medium astringency, some oak notes. Back of the tongue is banana, tartness, yeast, funk. Finish is tart, sour, biting, dry. As the beer breathed and warmed, the finish became a bit sweet as well, with all of the dry notes fading away. Excellent beer.

750ml bottle from kmweaver. 2006. Aroma: Light bready maltiness, peppery spice, grapey/vinous, subtle woodiness, and some nice brett notes. Appearance: Amber/orange in color and slightly hazed. Off-white head was full and foamy with good retention. Good lacing. Flavor: Slightly sweet bready maltiness with a light caramel note. Peppery, apples and grapes, Vinous, light toasted oak. Some musty brett notes and a light sourness that helps balance the sweetness. Some earthy hop notes into the finish. Medium-light bitterness and a dry finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Light alcohol warming in back of mouth. Overall: Very nice. Everything flowed together well in this one. Neither the brett or oak overpowered the other flavors. Great beer.
