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.

tderoeck (9710) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2015
19/VII/15 - 75cl bottle @ Velootje (Gent) - BB (or bottled?): IX/2010 (2015-945) Thanks to Alengrin for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange beer, creamy yellowish head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: bit oxidized, malty, some orange peel, very aged. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: soft sourish start, bit lemony, cardboard, oxidized. Aftertaste: lemony touch, bitter, bit dusty, funky. Looks like that brett didn’t get a chance to do much over the years. Pasteurised? No fermentable sugars left? Who shall tell...

fraternie (1011) - 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 (2129) - 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 (1010) - 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 (1898) - Victor, 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.
