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.

Beese (12671) - Tooting, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2020 Cask at GBBF, Earl’s Court on 05/08/2009. A big beer. Interesting on cask, but perhaps not it’s perfect medium. Resinous bitterness, big booze, big grain and spicy notes.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2020 ...how have I never rated this? Looks like a hazy orange. smells like a wild wine with kiwi and bread dough. cereal, very yeast forward, light booziness with a warming nature. little bit of grate and some lemon. tasty.

PhillyCraft (11964) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2019 Backlog, not sure how I missed this one. Amber orange color with a small to medium khaki head. Notes are prunes, cherry malt, yeast, wood, toffee, and florals. Strong and warming finish. Medium bodied.

Emeister84 (3280) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2019 750mL bottle. Winey aromas, funky cherry/cranberry/Merlot, definitely some oak barrel, a bit funky. Cloudy/hazy light red with a somewhat lasting white head. Dry, mildy sour, a bit funky yet again. Medium bodied.

beerplace (6270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2018 During Black Christmas 2018. Almost clear golden. Very fruity with some plum notes. Some bretts. Nice.

4.2
glennmastrange (3397) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2018
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2018 Tap. Light to moderate roasted grain for the malt, light flowers for the hops, light to moderate leaves for the yeast, with dried fruit plum and berries in the background. Head is small, frothy, off-white, with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear light burgundy. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic, and slightly bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, slick, with a lively carbonation. A great drinking Belgian Strong Ale with a nice amount of Sour Ale influence.

GregMooreNH (6316) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 9, 2018
Pours clear chestnut with a thin, tan head. Aroma is berries, caramel and red wine. Taste is sweet caramel and plum, warming to a bitter sour cherry and wood. Finish is all brett. A good Belgian.

Holy cow, this is killer beer! With an aggressive pour, I get a small to medium sized, cream colored head that soon settled out and no lace. Color is a hazy apricot. Aroma is fantastic, literally, with yeast, Brett, malt, wine fruitiness, caramel. Flavor is like aroma and has the acid from the yeastoids and gas to cut through the sweet malts and residual sweetness of the wine barrels along with the bitterness of the hops and yeast. Complex. Body is very good and too the carbonation. Finish is like flavor and includes alcohol warming. Would be good both before and after a great meal.

sinfull (2802) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 16, 2018
UPDATED: APR 16, 2018 Hazy, amber color. Medium-sized, white head. Fruits, wood, funky yeasts, candy sugar. Tart and fruity taste with a semi-dry finish. Almost a wine .

mansquito (12824) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 14, 2018
Threes, Brooklyn draught: pours reddish. Aroma is woody and winey... bretty, earthy and funky. Taste is tart, fruity and woody. Nice notes of wine and cherries. Complex, complicated, con-other words. Quite good.

Pizzeria Paradiso, Georgetown tap ($9): Pours red with little head (well, they poured mine really full). Aroma is cherry, yeast, funk, wood, and sugar. Taste is lightly sour, but a few notches above minimally so. There is some sweetness intermixing, so it is kind of like mixing sour and sweet cherries, but still having the beer tastes dominate. The finish is really woody and so is the aftertaste. I am like this.
