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.

2006. Gold in color to the point of being orange, slightly hazy, lots of fat bubbles rising through the body, and a bone-white head that colladsed quickly. Nose is definite Brett...lots of bubblegum but somewhat unidimensional in that sense. Flavor has the Brettanomyces overtones of the aroma but with a nice, honey-like malt base and some definite clay-like earthiness not unlike a good red wine that shows its terroir.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Ross has a little beer boner for this stuff. He found a good deal on it and I got this thing in a trade. So for 700, I thought I would celebrate the Bears NFC Championship with this one. Pours a hazy orange amber with a nice retentive white head with gold hues. Tons of carbonation bubbles stick to the glass. Aroma of yeast, clove, brett, apple, with a little oak in the background. More alcohol comes out in the aroma as it warms. Boy, the texture is very soft and thin, but it works in the beers favor because it allows more flavors to come forward. Organic flavors of yeast, apple, honey, and clove. All of those flavors are balanced by a subtle and pleasant tartness. The soft oak woodiness comes out on the finish, joined by some faint bitterness and a touch of warming alcohol. This is a great beer, and very easy to drink. 2006 bottle. My wife liked this one too. Thanks Ross....dick!

This is one of the most peculiar yetr amazing beers I have ever had. I read quite a few reviews going into this, and yet Im still perplexed by this beer. It poured an overly attractive amber/pumpkin with beautiful a white head and soft steady lacing. The smell is truffels, champagne, slight alcohol permeate heavily with this beer. The taste is sweet and sour with grapes, slight honey, mushrooms, wood, like a muscato di asti. This beer is a king in its class, absolutely enigmatic and amazing all at the same time.

A very delightful sour beer. Very refreshing to drink one. Two would be over the top though. Deep golden color. Huge frothy head. Hard to find out west as it no longer is on the local beer shelves. Saved this bottle for well over a year so it had some time to age. The wild belgian yeast had a good amount of time to do its work.

2005 vintage 750 mL bottle via trade with beastiefan2k. Pours bright copper with a small fizzy off-white head, mostly lasting, good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (straw, bread, meal), average hops (fruit, lemon, citrus), average yeast (dough, earth, must) with notes of oak, tart green fruit and honey. Light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness, average duration; tart citrusy fruit and musty oak, straw malt flavor, hint of alcohol. Full bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation and a metallic finish.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Persistant creamy head. Very interesting aroma, a harmony of the Brett and wine barrels, a bit reminicent of a lambic. Quite flavorful yet light. Very nice.

Sammy (11487) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2006
A cidery aroma and appearance, something Cantillon. Some lace. But more enjoyable on the palate, malt and incredibly subdued from being wild and funky. Wine and woody taste, an easy drink, far better accompanied by food. Spicy and herbal.Not sweet,

I got this in trade a while ago but I cant remember who it came from.. It was either porterhouse or hopdog I think.. Either way thanks! - Pours amber with a short offwhite head and lots of lace. Aromas of yeast, good caramel sweetness a touch of oak and some definite brett. Flavor is oak, brett, caramel, and some dusty notes. Good carbonation soft mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this beer!

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Rating #700 Murky amber body with a small off-white head. The aroma is horsey, pineapple, grapefruit, bread and oak. The flavor is heavy handed on the oak and vanilla, bread, pear and apple. Medium/light body with lively carbonation, very dry with a tart finish. The only thing holding this beer back is the over barreling of the beer.
