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.

tjthresh (1873) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2007
2006 bottle. The aroma is really just full of overwhelming oak. Hell, the flavor is also for that matter. The brett tart/acidicness made me kringe with every drink. Very difficult to swallow. Dry finish. I really didn’t enjoy this as much as I wished for the price.

3.6
Grovlam (4247) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2007
Bottle @ Copenhagen Øl Festival. Average fizzy off-white head that mostly diminished. Fair lacing. Cloudy orange color. Aroma of citrus, yeast, caramel and very fruity notes. Medium to full bodied with an average carbonation and light hint of alcoholic texture. Flavor was sweet with some acidic. Acidic sweet finish.

3.5
MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2007
A Sim rate (Bottle at Ølfestival): Smells like a cross between a lambic and a cider. A most bizzare aroma. Taste is just as strange. There is definite apple in there, pear and wheat. Tangy finish. Hazy chunky amber colour. Nice one.

sunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2007
Ølfestival 2007. Bottled. Pours a hazy dark orange with a small light, diminishing, head. Light sweetness with a moderate acidity and a hint of vinegar. Average yeastyness. Also has aromas of apples and wood with hints of funghi and vinegar. Soft carbonation. Short bitter finish. I suppose I need to try this one again, should I get the chance.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 14, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2007 Thick beautiful golden amber with creamy white head. Good buttery palate. Very sweet candy aroma. Taste relatively straight forward - candy, caramel, and lingering wine tastes with a somewhat dry finish. A very good beer.

Thure (152) - DENMARK - MAY 13, 2007

Bottle, Olfestival. Pours a lovely hazy golden color, with a medium white head. Aroma is quite tart, bit hoppy, fruity, cask wood, cheesy. Slight sour taste, bit citrus, cheese. Something in between a gueuze and a saison. Bit dry palate. Great stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2008 750ml 2006 bottle. aged 6-9mns. pours cler amber-gold with white head. nose has sweet pear, white wine, brett, pepper, and sorta musty. flavor has nice brett, pear, slightly sweet with caramels, subtle white wine finish, slightly fizzy. alcohol is well hidden. finishes a little too sweet and not crisp enough. sorta wish this was more like 5-7%abv. very tasty though.4.1.

1/20/08, 2006 vintage, aged about 18 months. this really isn’t a brett bomb and the wine notes seems to have aged out a bit. subtle sweetness throughout, dry funky, subtle, and balanced. fun to drink, tasty, but i’m not sure how special this really is. 4.0.

holdenn (2116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2007
750 ml bottle. I wasn’t even paying attention and andrew asked if I wanted some of this sure I reply not even knowing what it was. wow, big thanks drewbeerme. Oaky nose sour malts lemon citrus, green grapes, dust. Hazy orange yellow tall white head. A little overcarbonated but it leads to a nice oaky sour grape flavor with a little earthy wood finish. Tasty beer.
