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: JUL 15, 2007 Bottle. Beer is clear light/medium with a large, frothy, white, slowly diminishing, mostly lasting head. Light lacing.<P>First impression looks like a lot like a wild FSA. The aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain, traces of caramel biscuit; Hoppy with light floral lemon, orange zest; Yeast with moderately weighty barnyard and basement notes; Miscellany include a moderate note of vinous tart, fruit-forward red wine, wood, light vanilla and candy sugar, slightly spicy alcohol.<P>The flavor is moderately sweet, light/moderately acidic, lightly bitter with a long, warm, moderately sweet, lightly acidic, light/moderately bitter finish.<P>The body is medium, the texture is watery/velvety and the carbonation is lively.<P>Wonderfully fruity and juicy. Thin for the ABV.

Bottled: Golden coloured. Light hazy. Small white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with some spices in the background. Has some citric sournotes. Flavour is quite woody and fruity. Sour again but with some distinct alcoholnotes, that gives warmth to lips and palate. Medium bodied. Has a dry and light spiced fruity and where the sourness is again present. Nice one.

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.

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
(750ml bottle) Courtesy of the brewery and Caitlin. Many thanks! Pours a frothy, white, quick-dissipating head and a very clearbrownish-amber body. Regular carbonation bubbles of large size. Nose of a framboise gueuze, cherry notes and red wine acidic. Flavours are wild and all over - wild yeastiness, Belgian lambic, raisins, sour green grapes, vinegar and a dry, dry finish. Mild alcoholic burn at the end to conclude this interlude. Very, very interesting... and very, very tasty.

Aroma is of yeast, flowers and caramel. Looks a hazy orange/yellow. Notes of alcohol, flowers and what I assume is the oak. Not as pleased with it as what I had hoped, but a very interesting beer. Nice for a walk on the aged side.

Thanks to Mike for this one. Light borwn body. Sour bretty aroma. Caramel, toffee, flavors up front followed closely by a sour funky brett character.

Cask @ GLB 08’. Pour is hazy straw. Sour yeasty nose that is very faint. A let down in the taste department. Soft fuzzy mouthfeel that is hard to describe. I think its an leftover from the brett’s work. not viscous or oily just soft and buttery. light bitterness and brett funk are present.

750mL bottle, KW tasting, thanks to tupalev/Jeff. 2006 vintage. Pours a straw gold with little head. The aroma is dominated by the brett, sweet & sour sauce, and vinegar. Nice! Flavour is your typical spritzy brett dominated Belgian ale, mild malt body in here to provide some sort of side-show. Not that this is a bad thing, but it seems very American to me, as in, a strong ale, mild malts with a lot of brett thrown in to be the main attraction, no real complexity to it. Not terribly distinct from other bretty US brews Ive had. Still quite enjoyable, though I doubt if the abv is actually as high as they claim.
