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.

Vintage 2006. Poured in a goblet, aroma hits you from across the room, no need to stick you nose in the glass on this one! Big fruit, spice and brett on the nose. Flavor was cidery, they must have used a but load of sugar in this one, also oak, red wine, barnyard funk, brett, finishes dry. I liked this one, thought I found that the strong cider flavor took away from this beer.

Sample glass at Growler Garage, South Burlington, VT. The appearance was a hazy burnt red color with a quickly dissipating barely there white cap of a head. Bar pour, rating adjust appropriately. The smell started off with some sweet apples roaming into a sly bitter to semi-sour lemon. Fresh tart green apples slide in for the balance. The taste was sour with touches of sweet, bitter and tart through the previously mentioned flavors. A semi-sour apple aftertaste leads into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel to it. Carbonation runs fairly light. Sour hits on my tongue appropriately. Overall, I’d say this was a really nice American Wild ale really taking in the sweeter side some AWA’s are afraid to lean towards.

This is a super impressive beer. Excellent mouth feel and aroma. Flavors really come together nicely. Should age well too.

** Bouteille octobre 2014 ** Un joli visuel orangé et voilé se présente à moi et est surmonté d’une mousse mince mais tenace. Des fruits rouges, du funk et un peu de bois constituent le bouquet d’une bière qui promet d’être vineuse en bouche. Et effectivement, c’est le cas. Une légère acidité véhicule les saveurs de vin rouge et un léger sucre résiduel vient balancer tout ça. Tout est en parfaite symbiose et c’est foutrement bon.

Slightly hazy copper with no head. Lovely red starburst aroma with a wee kiss of trippel yeast. The flavor is a bit acidic and boozy. Woody, cherry, red wine, and boozy trippel malts/yeast. Dry throughout.

19/VII/15 - 75cl bottle @ Velootje (Gent) - BB (or bottled?): IX/2010 (2015-945) Thanks to Alengrin for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange beer, creamy yellowish head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: bit oxidized, malty, some orange peel, very aged. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: soft sourish start, bit lemony, cardboard, oxidized. Aftertaste: lemony touch, bitter, bit dusty, funky. Looks like that brett didn’t get a chance to do much over the years. Pasteurised? No fermentable sugars left? Who shall tell...

Bottle to tulip Lemon, yeast, and a touch of caramel. Cloudy amber with a ringed head. Taste is lemon, and a bunch of other cool stuff.
