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.

Barreras (1601) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours a rosy orange color with a floral wine aroma. Taste is clean, with a wine and oak barrel flavor. Some hay, and grass notes throughout the beer with a crisp aftertaste. The alcohol content is well hidden which makes the beer enjoyable.

On tap at Cask and Vine with Mr Barleywine. Light and fruity with a bretty funky earthy edge to it. Tannic and tart with a bit of a vinous character to it. Nice beer.

cloudy amber color; fruity aroma; excellent mild, sour fruit flavor; maybe just a hint of red wine and oak; a fantastic beer

"now THATS a cool beer. ridiculously complex. the aroma was just great. wild brett & farmhouse fruity notes. so much going on in the mouth. imparts a pleasant sweetness from the wine barrels, wild tart flavor from the brett. one of Allagashs beers worth the price."

From a bottle shared by Andrew : ) pours hazy copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like yeast, nice and sour, like dry tart apples, light pear and cheese. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like apple, yeast, pear.

bigda83 (854) - Jamestown, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2014
2013 vintage. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with not much head. Aroma of hay, oak, funk, and some sweet wine. Taste follows the nose and is nice and tart and sour. This felt more like a sour to me than a Belgian strong, but everyone has different tastes. Medium to light body, crisp, and a smoot yet dry finish to it. Absolutely wonderful beer.

Tap. Nice color, bright orange. Small ring of off white head. Little heat on the nose, white wine, sour. Delicious stuff, really glad I tried it.

Bire orange, voile, peu mousseuse et lgrement effervescente. Le nez est farouche et sauvage; on a juste envie dy tremper les lvres avant que la bte ne schappe! En bouche, cest buccal. Plus srieusement, cest jovial. Lacidit nous saisit avant de nous chuchoter ne crains rien, je vais y aller doucement. On y retrouve le ct charnu dun bon vin rouge (un vin charnu, videmment) et lacidit vivifiante dun vinho verde (cest fou ce que des levures un peu folle et un baril peuvent confrer une bires). Cest acide sans tre sur, mais cest sr que cest dlicieux du dbut la fin (et principalement au milieu...)

The wine barrels add a nice depth of flavor. Great sour finish. Looks great and tastes even better.
