Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: brewandbbq on 01-15-2006

Two yeast strains were used to create this unique 9.5% ABV Belgian style ale. The first, a Belgian farmhouse yeast, establishes the flavor foundations of a classic Belgian-style ale. The second, a house strain of Brettanomyces yeast, brings it to the next level contributing an intriguing myriad of flavors including pear, apricot, graham cracker, and bread crust. Finally, a portion of the Interlude is aged in French Merlot and Sirah oak barrels, which impart a distinctive vinous plum character and a drying, almost tannic finish.

On tap at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

Pours a hazy golden orange-ish yellow, with a quarter inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like heavy citrus, baked bread, wine, and the slightest amount of funky Brett.

The brett is pretty restrained here, it provides a bready, crusty, and slightly sweet finish. The Brett yeast is restrained as mentioned above, providing some light mustiness and the taste of bread. It feels very citrusy, lots of orange and apricot, a little bit of apple juice, and the smallest amount of tartness.

This is light bodied, with a crisp and bready mouthfeel, along with a moderate level of carbonation.

A really unique barrel aged saison. The red wine doesn't show up a whole lot, but the Brett here is the real star. Restrained and elegant and just tasty as fuck.
