COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Interlude- somewhere between the leap and the landing. Its 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. Cest le gout, toujours! Its the taste that is always an adventure.

75 cl bottle @ home, bottled 10/2014
Aroma has ripe apricot, some bretta tones and orange juice. Flavour has orange juice, some bretta, apricot and mild tartness in the finish. Easy-going bretta-ale but nothing special.

Clear, orange gold. Almost no tan head. Funky, gym socks and basement, some deeper fruits. Quite sour, some hops bitterness, nice sweet base. Lightly chewy, some effervescence, reasonably acidic. Quite long finish. Pretty great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy toasted orange color with a small, light yellow head that quickly dissipates. On the nose is citrus/orange lemon cake. Taste is immediately tart but not ought right sour. A big squeeze of lemon onto yellow cake - other citrus notes and a faint background of apricots. Hints of golden brown toast on the back end and the harness lingers through the finish. Mouthfeel is much lighter than I expected and not sticky at all which I think is a feat given its tartness. Tiny and lively carbonation. This is fantastic and a great summer day drinker which I didnt expect given red wine barrel aging.

RRistow12 (746) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2016 Tasted from bottle. Pours an orange copper with white fizzy head that quickly fades. Aroma is fruity with cherry, berries and some melon with a little sour funk. Taste is moderate to heavily sour. Flavors of Brett, Belgian yeast, caramel, tropical fruits. Light and effervescent on the palate. Sours arent my thing but great for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Appalachian vintner. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves solid lacing in the glass. Has some solid red wine notes on the nose. Has some tartness and red wine character on the tongue. Lingers a bit. Solid for style but not as spectacular as I was hoping for. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quite a fruity Belgian strong. Strange in both Belgian and strong ways. Its not a dark fruit but rather berries/strawberries/melon. Fresh fruit, however, which is a relief. Good dark malt balance and I can definitely taste the wine. Fun beer.

Pour at the brewery. I tried all the beers at 4 breweries the day I had this, and this was by far the best thing I had all day. The flavor is traditional Belgian with the distinctive Allagash brett yeast being highlighted really well.

Sample glass at Growler Garage, South Burlington, VT. The appearance was a hazy burnt red color with a quickly dissipating barely there white cap of a head. Bar pour, rating adjust appropriately. The smell started off with some sweet apples roaming into a sly bitter to semi-sour lemon. Fresh tart green apples slide in for the balance. The taste was sour with touches of sweet, bitter and tart through the previously mentioned flavors. A semi-sour apple aftertaste leads into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel to it. Carbonation runs fairly light. Sour hits on my tongue appropriately. Overall, Id say this was a really nice American Wild ale really taking in the sweeter side some AWAs are afraid to lean towards.
