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.

Draft offering..excited to try this one out..definite vinous..champagne like nose..with a hint of spice..some wild cherry as well..crisp acidity with notes of oak and fruit..quite tasty really enjoying the slight puckering of the sour intertwined with the Brett action underneath..abv is very well hidden and this was a very impressive offering..well done..worth seeking out and considering seeking out a bottle..even at the high price point to cellar..as the funk and Brett should become even more interesting with some age...

Sour, yeasty golden delicious apple aroma. Doughy and full body, slight tang from the wine. Incredible malty presence throughout. Wine, tea and wonderful effervescence leaves you wanting more.

On tap. Pours a great ruby red with an off-white head and lacing. It has a great aroma with some funk and some strawberry and other wine aromas. The flavor is slightly tart, with wine notes up front and a clean, dry finish over a light-medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2016 Tasted from bottle. Pours an orange copper with white fizzy head that quickly fades. Aroma is fruity with cherry, berries and some melon with a little sour funk. Taste is moderate to heavily sour. Flavors of Brett, Belgian yeast, caramel, tropical fruits. Light and effervescent on the palate. Sours arent my thing but great for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle dated December 2007. Hands down one of the sourish beers. The sour notes are subdued though and balance the oak notes that are also present. SOme nice flavors of peach and apricots, with a hint of tartness. Outstanding!

Bottle. The pour was a clear reddish copper orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that diminished quickly into a thin layer of residue that lasted throughout and produced some excellent sticky lacing. The aroma had a Farmhouse funkiness to it, with a sweaty grain malt, some wild yeast and had notes of sour grapes, red wine and a nice woody oak. The taste was sweetly acidic, quite tart and very fruity right off and then became sweetly sour with a strong wine characteristic and a hint of wood at the end. The flavor stayed with you for a nice long time after the swallow, allowing for a nice sour grape finish. Mouthfeel was right in the middle of light and medium in body and very dry in texture, like a nice Merlot with a fizzy carbonation. Overall a very unique tasting strong ale, one like I have never tasted in the past, but definitely plan to do so again in the future.

Amber orange with small white head. Fantastic aroma of yeast, red fruits, grass, sugar. Medium full body with some carbonation no alcohol. Flavor does not quite live up to the aroma, sour grass and cherry, maybe some tannin but not much in the way of wood. Interesting and good but was expecting it to be more complex.

Poured into a tulip glass it was a little less carbonated than the bottle I had but it was to be expected from a cask pour. The brew was a slightly cloudy burnt orange with a light ring of bubbles at the top of the glass. I got aromas of funk and fruit, berries and blankets LOL. It has a great nose ant the flavor is up there too it is a nice sour. Not to mouth puckering and fruity enough to keep it real drinkable. The feel in my mouth was great but it needed some more carbonation. Two glasses of this was my limit but I enjoyed every drop. It is somewhat pricey but worth it for a special occasion

#300. Great aroma but the ABV cuts in on the taste slightly. The barrel aging comes on strong on the aroma, but is well balanced in the taste. Nice cola-ish aftertaste and sourness. The brett is quite mild and does not offer any of the more wild flavors usually associated with it. Nice, balanced, and impressive. Very pleased with this.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2010 2009 Bottle (from trade with jtclockwork) pour to Trappist glass. Dark amber with thin brief white head. Aroma sour and tart. Taste quite sour and citrusy, sour apples, funk., orange. Finish sour and tart. Alcohol disguised. I started drinking it too cold and it was sort of like bizarre orange/lemon juice. When it warmed up a bit it really became much more pleasant and complex. Still not something Id want every day but pretty good.
