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.

Pours a bright copper color with great clarity and a quickly diminishing head.

Smell is musty, vinegar like and malty. Kind of fruity with a kiss of malt vinegar.

In the taste, nice sourness, more of a winesque tartness. Wine and some funk, light oak. The body is light, carbonation is low.

Overall the flavors are sublime and it drinks really smooth. It was delicious and moderately complex, my review is nothing compared to this beer. It's hard to describe.
