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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Vintage 2009. Drank November, 2013

Appearance: a reddish orange color. completely opaque. it foamed up when i opened it but very little foamy tan head when poured. a lacing stays behind around the edges. a pretty tasty looking beer

Smell: immediately hits with vinous characteristics. fruity and oaky. very light brett funk. its a good smell but just a bit weak

Taste: opens up grapes and wine-like flavors. develops into a oak and brett flavor. those flavors dominate but cover up a nice yeasty belgian flavor. very complexity beer that comes from the aging. if you don't look hard you could miss the underlying beer.

Mouthfeel: pretty light. some feel from the saison. but a lot of brett funk and wood left behind

Overall: a great and complex beer. a bit pricy but is a nice treat when you are in the mood for something like this. I'd love to do a side by side of this age and a fresher one to see how it develops
