Style | ABV
Saison / Farmhouse Ale |  9.50% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Orange color with short head retention.
Sweet and very orchard aroma with mild funky notes.
Predominant flavor of apples and grapes fermentation, some elegant funkiness, oranges, Asian plum liquor, pear, bretta and white wine.
Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness and tart sensation.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation of tiny bubbles.
Outstanding beer, very elegant with amazing complexity and lots of grapes and bretta. It felt like a mix of a Saison and a Belgian Strong Golden Ale.

On tap at Cask and Vine with Mr Barleywine.
Light and fruity with a bretty funky earthy edge to it. Tannic and tart with a bit of a vinous character to it. Nice beer.
