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.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2008 (2/23/08, 750ml bottle, 2005 vintage) Given how much as my wife and I loved this beer the first time we tried it, I had to acquire another bottle from that initial batch, which we let sit for far too long (even though part of the delay was due to Kathy getting pregnant and then being a nursing mother). Aroma is medium sweet, the brett is stronger than the wine now, but theres still some pear/cabernet sauvignon, together with some tropical fruit, funk, light lemon. Taste is mild sweet, oaky white wine, some Brett, berry, tropical fruit. Some alcohol warming in the finish. Medium-full body with some syrup, light acidity. With the disappearance of the red wine characteristics, my appreciation of this beer is sadly diminished. Nevertheless, it still is a lovely beer. (8/4/7/4/15)

(2/4/06, 750ml bottle, 2005 vintage) Cloudy golden body with small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, vinous (grape, plum, some cherry, light tannins), light duskiness. Taste is medium sweet, vinous (merlot), some oak, brettanomyces, dusky, white grape. Very fruity, and the brett imparts a white wine characteristic. Medium body, some effervescence. Truly a fusion of beer and wine -- unique just how much the wine qualities are imparted in this beer, well beyond what a wine cask can provide. (9/3/8/4/17)

Hazy blonde gold with a thin white head. Pleasant funky farmyard aroma, lactic acid, fruity apple notes. In mout, like a sweet white wine, with honey notes, lactic acid, citrus, lemon. Smooth mouthfeel, really enticing. Excellent! At EBF 2006.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 Orange with a small but lasting white head. Aroma has hints of lambic, as well as oak and pineapple. Flavour has acid, lambic notes, and a lasting dry finish.
Cask at GBBF 2009: Exactly the same numbers, still a yummy funky beer.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2008 (750ml bottle, courtesy of Lumpy) Pours a cloudy burnt orange body with a moderate beige head. Aroma of apple cider vinegar, citrus, and vinous. Flavor of apple, citrus, alcohol, and oak. Does not have the farmhouse qualities that I expect in a Belgian-style.
