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.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
On tap @ Max’s Taproom and 750ml bottle. Hazy golden brew with some white head. Aromas of light fruits, brett, oak, and vinous. Flavor is earthy and slightly tart with a fruity finish.

fraternie (907) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Gorgeous caramel color, slightest hint of sour yeast on the nose. Palate is slightly sour lemon, evolving into pear, hints of caramel and toasted oak underneath. Long finish.

Pours is cloudy dark orange red, fizzy thin white head, gone quickly. Nose is raspberry, oak, brett funk. Taste brings raisins, tart cherry, more oak, hints of vanilla/caramel. Reasonably sweet with mild tartness. Quite nice, and really complex, but I’d prefer more sour and less oak. But that is just personal preference--it is beautifully executed.

Westmeister (2061) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2015
2012 Interlude draft @ Midway Pub. Loads and loads of brett here. Lots of fruitiness. Oak, sweet. belgian yeast, tid bit funky, caramel. Ok. But I have come to learn that I am not a huge fan of just brett.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1000) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 3, 2015
light amber-gold with a dusting of medium coarseness white head. Aroma is tart raspberry and cherry, a touch of pickle and a hint of horse and moderate citrus, but not in the hoppy way. Body is medium-medium-light, oily, (surprisingly heavy given the style.) Flavor is that taste that’s leftover in your mouth after you’ve had orange juice, tart cherry, light grass. a short pulse of crisp bitterness electrifies the back/sides of my palate in the finish. Nice. Nothing amazing. I wish I didn’t have a (mild) cold so I could see if I was missing anything... Definitely on the tart side. The wine barrels make it reminiscent of something that’s not here... cool!

MacBoost (1488) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - APR 12, 2015
2014 vintage. Pours a hazed orange color with a small white head. Aromas of wine and funk, some apple. Taste is semi sweet and lightly sour, some funk. Flavors of tart green apple, wine barrel, some sweaty brett. Finish is semi sweet and gently tart. Decent.

2015.03.29 - Allagash Interlude 2014 - on tap at Always Ron's. No long review. Drinkable but not my cup of tea. If the dominant taste is from the Brett then I may not be a Brett fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rodenbach99 (3515) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
En fût à la brasserie. Un liquide dorée foncée. Un nez de cidre de glace, de pomme, de pêche au caramel. Le nez est complexe et agréable. La bouche laisse perplexe avec des tanins quelque peu agressant en fin de bouche. Tout de même une très bonne bière.

Backlog. On tap at the Mellow Fellow in Truckee. Orange and clear appearance with a fully diminishing head. Funky yeast, fruity esters, mild tartness and Belgian notes. Medium to full body. Pretty fun to drink.

On tap at threes brewing in Brooklyn. Slightly spicy on the nose. Pours a nice dark Amber. Intensely fruity but also sour with a nice finish. Good. A bit overly fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andrew_drinks (234) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle from trade - thanks Blazay. Clear burnt amber in the glass, initially a big white head but doesn’t linger. Funky, estery yeast character coming off it - vinous, leathery, fruity - stone fruit, some raisins. Medium to light carbonation. Flavour is lightly tart, a big hum of honey, some oxidisation evident but not unpleasant, tropical fruit, pineapple, passion fruit but only very lightly, a touch of vanilla. A slightly tannic edge from the wood brings everything to a dry finish. The strength is there in the background but just adds to the beer. Complex and delicious
