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.

bhensonb (15963) - 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.

Dogbrick (14290) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Sampled at the Odds and Ends Tasting II on 10/19/07: Deep amber color with a medium thick beige head that burns off pretty quickly. Rings of lace. Aroma of yeast and sour fruit plus some spice. Medium body with a vinous and oaky character. Yeast and fruit flavors over a decent malt base. The finish is is spicy (anise) and yeasty with a fruit aftertaste. Allagash typically does a good job with their offerings and this is no exception.
