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.

2009 bottle from Tripphop. Thanks! Bottle opens with a nice pop. Hazy, copper orange color with a small white head. Brett-filled aroma with some pineapple, and a strong wine character. Nice, not over powering, and enticing. Taste is slightly thin. Funky, fruity pineapple, some red grape character, and dry. Good stuff, but Id prefer to have some acidity here. Quick Edit: This really comes together more as it starts to warm up. A touch more acidic, more floral notes, the pineapple comes to the front on the flavor. This really is a damn good beer.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - OCT 3, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Pours a gorgeous hazy orange marmalade color with a medium ivory head. Aroma is very nice; a little sour, very fruity, mildly spicy, with vinous notes. Flavor is initially just spicy and a little smoky, then opens up a little in the middle with fruit element. Ashy finish. Soft, velvety mouthfeel. I can dig this pretty easily. Overall, very good.

Pours golden with a short lasting tan head. Good lace on the side of the glass. Aroma is quite strong with hints of wine, oak, citrus, banana, cloves, strawberry and cherry. Taste is really nice and quite sweet with the banana, cloves, wine and oak coming out initially. Then the cherry and strawberry come in later. The palate is very creamy and quite sugary. Powerful wine and oak combination on the palate resulting in a good warming effect. This beer is terrific. Too bad it is so damn expensive.

Bottle pour. Amber with active head. Very sour nose with a healthy amount of funk. Well balanced body follows. Oak notes and a solid brett presence. Dry finish.

Might have been a bit more boozey than the usual lunchtime beer, but the allure was too strong. Pours a lovely nearly clear pale with quickly dissipating yet lacing white head. Scent is sour grapes, earth, and spice. Flavor is a balanced bittersweet the whole way through. Lively fun on the tongue. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

Bottle, 750 mL dated:January 2007. Dark copper color with nice head and lacing. The oak is present from the start and is influenced by heavy cherry/vanilla notes. Souring fruits, citrus and cherrywood waltz on the tounge as sweet vanilla and mellowed alcohol notes develop interesting citrus, raisin, fig and plum flavors. This brew is certainly complex and I am looking forward to seeing it age.

750ml bottle from The Lighthouse in Manchester. 2007 vintage Pours a virtually translucent amber-red with a thin film of off-white head. Smells sweet, fruity, and sour/acidic. Tastes fruity, bready, and sour/funky, but not overwhelmingly so. Flavors are extremely subtle and balanced. Medium-bodied with surprisingly low carbonation. Wow. This beer is the most unique beer I have ever encountered, unlike any other beer I’ve had. Delightfully sour/funky, but not a sour bomb. Nothing wrong with this beer, very well-crafted doubt. Even at the cost, (about 17$ per bottle), I would not hesitate to buy up more. Can’t wait to see how it ages (have a bottle of 2007 and 2005 aging now)!

On tap at threes brewing in Brooklyn. Slightly spicy on the nose. Pours a nice dark Amber. Intensely fruity but also sour with a nice finish. Good. A bit overly fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a headless translucent orange colour with. The nose is packed with brett yeast, barnyard funk, tropical fruits and thats it. The flavour is vanilla, wood, brett yeast, tropical fruits, white wine and grassy, earthy hops. It is extremely sweet, but the brett yeast prevents it from being cloying. The palate is nearly flat, with a long, sweet berry finish and well hidden booze. Judging by other ratings, I think I got a flat bottle. Ill have to fork out 20 dollars for another bottle.
