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.

Picked up at Costco for ~$16. Poured into glasses and shared with friends who love Brett. This beer was wonderful. It has a fruitiness that I'd not experienced in a beer before because I believe it comes from the Brett rather than hops, which I'm more accustomed to. Pineapple, apricot, peach and some dried fruit and none of the horse blanket/straw I'd learned to expect from Brett. Just about perfect mouth feel and carbonation. Overall, this beer really floored me with how good it is.
