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.

SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2015
Corps orangée et son anneau de mousse. Arômes et saveurs de salade fruitée avec des pêches, des fruits du verger, du fût de vin. Parfaite présence en bouche. Beau corps huileux. Finale sèche tannique. Une belle et grande maîtrise.

Alengrin (5884) - BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2017 Strong sour ale with loose, unstable, off-white head and hazy orange colour. Very estery, lightly funky and vinous aroma of lime, redcurrant, sherry, wet hay, tomato, apricot, white wine, leater, tobacco, horseblanket. Very vididly fruity taste, immediately sourish but with sweetness for balance, peach, sour berries, lemon and pineapple suggestions, also lactic acidity (sour cream), smooth caramelly malt basis, bit honeyish, very vinous finish with some warming alcohol, drying acidity and delicious woody tannins, but some glue-like solvents as well. Could have been more complex, but still very good for an American sour ale.

Bottle bought in SF in February 2014. (vintage 2013) Hazy amber with a small head. Vinous aroma of fruit, wood, light funk, yeast and red berries. Similar taste. Also oak and light caramel. Well done and nicely dinkable.

radarsock (1223) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Purchased at Sunset Grill, and consumed at the bar. $9.99 for the 750 mL bottle. To tulip, it pours a light carrot orange with which a fluffy white head 2 fingers in length stood.

From notes: tastes and smells of strawberries, champagne yeast, cotton, sweat, pilsner malt, tangelo meat, and young oak. Medium-bodied. A bite of acidity experienced by swallow.
Keep making similar stuff to this, and please do not deviate.

10 ounce sample on tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma has some fruity melon hints. Cantaloupe presence. Floral, and somewhat sweet. Interesting and complex aroma. Hazy, orange body with a small, white head. Starts with a slight cheesiness. Light melon hints are present in the middle. Some dry dustiness comes through later. Finishes with a very vinous, dry white wine flavor. Interesting.

This beer tastes like the ocean just before dawn, full of hope and expectancy of the day to come. Be sure to enjoy this beer while not on a smelly San Francisco street! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
