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.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2007
Bottled at Københavnske Øldage. Golden-orange beer with an off-white head. Sourness, sweetness and spices on the nose. The flavor is sweet and spiced with a little sourness. Quite sticky and sweet and warming in the mouth. Nice fusion of sourness and sweetness. (070511)

jtclockwork (16600) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle. 2012 vintage. Pours amber orange with white head. Nose is wild yeast, french oak, vinous notes, peeled grapes and dried citrus. Taste is the same with hints of dried citrus peel. Nice oak character. Medium body. Lightly wild and funky.

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 23, 2010
A: The pour from a 2009 bottle is a hazy light amber color with a finger’s worth of white foam. S: A very nice lactic acid presence combined with a nice must and barnyard funkiness. Some apple, white grapes, and mild citrus round out the nose. T: The flavor has a nice lemony lactic acidity to go along with a mild but impressive funkiness. The grapes are present in the flavor as well, providing a nice vinous character that works well with the oak. M: As I previously mentioned the beer has a nice dryness and tannic character which I enjoy in a wild ale. The carbonation level is moderate and works well. D: A nice offering from Allagash. I found it to be slightly more enjoyable than Confluence and some of their other beers. I’d definitely recommend this one and would have no problem with having it again.

Dedollewaitor (16170) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2007
34 US dollar bottle (75cl), Odense/Denmark. Amazing unclear orange with a red hew & fine lasting white head that drags handsome lacings. The aroma itself was teriffic. Oak, wood, yeast, alcohol, sugar, hops, vinous wine. Wonderful fruityness. Very smooth & soft body. The finish lasted like forever & gave a light warmth. So nice...

FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2011
Bottle (RBESGG2011, Grand Tasting)
Hazy light orange. Nice sharp acidic bit in the aroma, surprising and nice. Dusty musty retronasals. A touch dull in the mouth. Nice mellow malty finish, a touch nutty. Adequate, but not shining.

4.2
MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
Bottle, 2007, 9.5% at KØ07. Acidic and vinous aroma. Hazy dark orange colour. Small white head. The flavour is not as acidic as suggested by the aroma, but nice with some earth. Peppery aftertaste. Actually well-balanced in my opinion.

3.7
Ferris (15336) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle - Nice funky stone fruit. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Sweet stone fruit and a long sweet candy peach finish. Light, sweet and some mellow tartness.

3.9
bhensonb (15208) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Bottle - 2007 January. Slight explosion of cork. Aroma is Iightly sour in an apple way. The color is a slightly hazy orange tinged amber. The white head left very quickly. Lots of tiny bubbles. Thinnish body with very mild carbonation (surprising, given the explosive cork removal.) It is well carbonated, it just is that there is no bite whatsoever. The flavor is sour woody, with some citrus, and some caramel malt floating along in the complexity. It is mildly astringent, and some bitter seems to complement the sour. Really very tasty. With the astringency it does resemble a red wine with wood or tannin. Very good ale.
