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.

CapFlu (4910) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
(750ml bottle) Courtesy of the brewery and Caitlin. Many thanks! Pours a frothy, white, quick-dissipating head and a very clearbrownish-amber body. Regular carbonation bubbles of large size. Nose of a framboise gueuze, cherry notes and red wine acidic. Flavours are wild and all over - wild yeastiness, Belgian lambic, raisins, sour green grapes, vinegar and a dry, dry finish. Mild alcoholic burn at the end to conclude this interlude. Very, very interesting... and very, very tasty.

Cask @ GLB 08’. Pour is hazy straw. Sour yeasty nose that is very faint. A let down in the taste department. Soft fuzzy mouthfeel that is hard to describe. I think its an leftover from the brett’s work. not viscous or oily just soft and buttery. light bitterness and brett funk are present.

750mL bottle, KW tasting, thanks to tupalev/Jeff. 2006 vintage. Pours a straw gold with little head. The aroma is dominated by the brett, sweet & sour sauce, and vinegar. Nice! Flavour is your typical spritzy brett dominated Belgian ale, mild malt body in here to provide some sort of side-show. Not that this is a bad thing, but it seems very íAmericaní to me, as in, a strong ale, mild malts with a lot of brett thrown in to be the main attraction, no real complexity to it. Not terribly distinct from other bretty US brews Iíve had. Still quite enjoyable, though I doubt if the abv is actually as high as they claim.

RedSox2004 (1497) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Label says June 2009. Hazy golden orange with a generous bubbly head, good solid retention and spotty lacing. Crisp apple and grape aromas with a prominent oakiness. Tart, almost sour, apples up front, countered by a subtle grape sweetness. Slight sense of lemon and other citrus in the background, and finishes dry. High carbonation, medium to full body, and a lingering tartness.

Bootle from peter. August 08. Thanks a ton peter. Pours a. Glowing orange copper hue. Aroma of fruity bread and sweet berry wine. Toast, light balsamic and sweet doughy caramel. Lightly sour bready berry wine beer. Nice enough. Slight tripel like quality in the backdrop. Canít imagine this aging more for the better as there oxidation settin in. Aroma better than flavor.
