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.

A-Pours a pretty, amber color. Thin, white head doesn't fade away too much. It leaves minimal lacing,

S-Aroma is relatively soft but it's pleasant. Wild tartness is the first thing I notice. Musty and funky. Some pale-fleshed fruits and hay.

T-The flavor is even better. The tartness is amped up. A light lick of oak. The fruitiness and barny flavors are also more intense. Underripe fruit and zesty yeast. Brett flavors. Also some wine notes. A very wild Saison.

M-ABV hidden well. The carbonation really lifts the body up. It's sneakily drinkable. Lingering tartness. Tannic in some essences.

O/D-I really enjoyed this beer. Allagash makes some killer brews and this one is no different. Happy to have grabbed a pint of this. A bottle is it a bit too pricey. I was however, very happy with a pint of this wild Saison.
