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.

Bottle, thanks Marsiblursi. Hazy amber, medium fluffy off-white head. Cidery fruity aroma with red apples, and some spicy and woody notes., and a touch of alcohol Medium bodied, a bit spritzy carbonation. Nice balance between malt sweetness, fruity acidity, and bitterness.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2007
Bottled. Dark yellow colour, low, very low head. Pale malty aroma with brettanomyces, that gives acidity. Brett is prominent in flavour as well, with pale malty flavour and a soft, delicate mouthfeel. Lots of candi. Hints of berries.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy with with yeast swirls softly carbonated orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty coriander mild fruit and mild floral. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt hops spices and vinous. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

2007. Acquired in trade with mj. Copper color with a slight haze. Moderately thick uneven off-white head. Aroma gives off a lot of fruity yeast aromas and a bit of a mild earthy funk. Thick palate and the carbonation springs nicely from under the thickness. Good fruity mix of Belgain malts and light funk to start the taste. The finish is a little spicy and funky, and the alcohol is a bit detectable. Overall, a well-made Belgain, but not my favorite Allagash.

JoeMcPhee (9268) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2007
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pale orange, cloudy appearance. Thick white head. Very light spicy aroma, lots of wheaty aroma and a yeasty sweetness. Cardamom and lots of fruity character. A bit of citrus, lemon and light coriander and lemongrass. Low bitterness, but with a Belgian feel with a hint of oak and vanilla in the finish.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2008
750 ml bottle I think. 2006 vintage. First brew of 2008! Amber pour with tons of champagne like carbonation and a large head. Vinous aroma with noticeable oak and sour fruit. Interesting flavor. Kind of at the cross roads of wine and beer. Fruit is there in the form of grapes and possibly apple. Sour is there but also subdued by oak and alcohol. Just a touch of funk. All this comes together in fashion that is not immediately enjoyable but rather an experience that grows on you. By the end of this bottle I was very happy with the whole thing and would have it again. Wet mouth feel overall.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2008
750ml. January 2007. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small bubbly white head. Aroma is lemony, subtly sour, touches of vanilla and hay and just a tiny bit of barnyard. Aroma in general is nice though subdued. Flavor is smooth and slightly peppery and estery at first - Orval comes to mind. Doughy and bready that leads to a pretty dry finish. Moderate funkiness, low level of tartness and acidity, high drinkability. Medium bodied. I cannot find any influence from the oak/wine. This earns marks for its drinkability. This is a good all around beer that is nice if not exceptional.
