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.

Draft from Churchkey in DC, and to be honest, I’m glad I never plopped down the bread for a bottle. Poured bright reddish amber with a thin foamy white head. Nose is wood, grapes skins, wine barrels, and a rather weak-seeming base beer. No real Brett notes and not super funky in any way. I expected something more tart/sour, and this is not that beer. Maybe another taste with different expectations will change my mind. Solid, for sure, but not all that.

Pours a amber gold with a small white head. Aroma of fruit and wood. Taste is dark fruit, citrus, wood, caramel, and spice. Very enjoyable.

2016 Alaranjada de média turbidez, espuma branca de média formaçăo e persistęncia. Aroma bombando de brett, celeiro, uva bem inserida, em menor intensidade casca de laranja madura. Médio dulçor e leve acidez. . Corpo leve e alta carbonataçăo. Final de média persistęncia tende para o cítrico alaranjado sem perder o brett e uva. Muito boa !

Pours a rich copper from a tap. Big funky sour apple aroma and flavor, rather bretty, a little barnyard. Pretty good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle Sharing / Piwne Degustacje Kraków, Craftownia - Krakowski Wielokran
Kołor bursztynowy, zamglony. Piana lekka, zwiewna, niczym szczególnym nie wyróżnia się. W aromacie początkowo dzikie, funky z akcentami końskiej derki, skóry, siana, stajni, spoconego konia. Dalej przejrzałe owoce - najwięcej brzoskwiń i moreli. Po kilku łykach pojawia się wyraźna winność. W smaku przede wszystkim owocowe, tylko subtelnie kwaśne i lekko dzikie. Po ogrzaniu dużo winnych posmaków. W dalekim tle detale w klimacie dżemu brzoskiwniowwgo. Alkohol rozgrzewa, średnie ciało. Średniak, niczym szczególnym nie wyróżniający się w tłumie.

Tap at Churchkey into a snifter showing hazy honey with sparse white foam. The nose shows leafy eucalyptus or aloe. The palate is lightly carbonated and fully bodied. Medium tart with the same leafy eucalyptus or aloe flavors with a light mint profile. Wow, this was very unpleasant.

Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 18, 2016
2013 Vintage. Pours a rich copper amber hue with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is a pleasant mix of composted fruit, vinous barrel funk and some soft belgian candy. Palate follows with notes of orange rind, papaya, wet oak, honeycomb, some earthy leather and complex fruit lingers with a bit of bitterness and tannins on the finish.

77ships (9638) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2016
Thank you Mathieu87 & PriorL! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ “Epic beer Tasting 2016”. Dark orange, little head. Nose is dull metallic orange, grainy, big sweetness. taste is sweet orange peel, bit metallic, candy, overly sweet, big sugar, improved a bit over time, got more orange peel, overall largely a big slab of sweetness. Body is fizzy & metallic. Another Allagash beer where I don’t entirely the love. Didn’t get the French oak & brett, brett is lost in the sweetness.

JDBaker11058 (2143) - Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2016
appearance: hazy golden-orange-red, with a finger of creamy light tan head. aroma: red wine vinegar, green apple skins, champagne-y yeast, sharp-sweet funk. taste: tart, slightly sour bite of raspberry and stone fruit up front, then some vinous, jammy notes, followed by a peppery funk of brett. finish: funkier as it warms, as the sharpness of the brett becomes more plasticky; lingering tart vinous notes too. notes: Superbly well-hidden alcohol; great lively palate. Funky, tart, and complex. Birthday gift from Christian, 2016.
