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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2010
750ml bottle, 2006 vintage consumed in 2010. The pour gives a cloudy, dark, dusky orange-amber body with a thin, swirly, off-white cap of foam. A wet, spotted wash mostly rejoins the pool below, failing to form hard lace. The nose is very earthy, clearly showing the effects of 4+ years of brett influence. Tart, musty crab apples are joined by dry caramel sugars, cinnamon-sugar dessert bread, and some funky grain. Farmhouse wood and fading, vinous fruitiness play off of one another, lending depth. Flavors are a little more muddled, but they run along the same lines. Sweet-tart apple mash is met with caramelized bread, grain, grapes, and some fig. Oak isnít prominent, but itís there. Brett has consumed a lot of the sugars, infusing some must and earth in their place, but it still largely remains fruity and sweet. The palate sports lively, fine carbonation throughout the medium-full body, finishing dusty, scratchy, and somewhat oxidized. Overall, itís a good brew, but itís probably a little long in the tooth. I think this might have been more complex and pulled together a year or two ago.

Hazy brown beer. Light dry palate. Well balanced beer. There is a sour element and a some wood that provides modest vanilla. These two things balance each other perfectly. Not particularly compex but very drinkable.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2013
October 2012 bottle (11 months old).
Appearance: The body is amber with a light haze. The head is short and thin with poor retention. This isnít a very appealing beer.
Aroma: The aroma is slightly of red wine vinegar with hints of cherry and a backing of lightly tart lemon and leather, there are also hints of oak tannins and dry red wine. The aroma is mild, but smells nice.
Taste: The intro is of tannins, dry red wine and hints of alcohol, but it is taken over by leathery and dry Brett. Oak is big throughout, but not overbearing and the Brett has really taken hold. The finish is of Brett, alcohol and tannins, hints of cherry, with a light warming sensation lingering.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: I remember liking this a lot more, I remember a lot more fruitiness of cherries and a lot more sweetness along with hints of sour. I need to try this fresher, before the Brett has changed this too much. This is still a good beer, just not something I would pay $20 for in this state.

@ Greenís Discount Beverage / Columbia SC --- Appealing clear bourbon color with a head that quickly drops to the rim, no lace. Taste is sour ale that draws on dry red wine in the palate for a unique taste. Sour continues on through a lingering finish. This is not your typical brew - more like a barleywine than a Belgian. Recommended.

2009 bottle thanks to Tom. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. The aroma is strong wood, brett, funk, and grape. Thick mouthfeel with strong funk, oak, and vinous flavor. Very good.

Thanks Dr. Bill. Pours with a slightly cloudy orange-amber body topped by a medium thick to thick head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is sour and tart with a note of lemon and a nice funk. The flavor is sour yet floral...it loses a lot in the flavor. Medium bodied, crisp and dry.
