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.

On draft at Blind Tiger.

Reddish gold, mild head, no lace. Tart yeast, fruity, Belgian spices in the nose. Smells like a sour.

Taste is super funky with big spikes of flavor left and right. Hops, yeast, Brett, earthy funk, oak barrels, and a Belgian Tripel spice profile. Tastes like a Tripel hooked up with a sour one drunken evening. Crazy and fun and enjoyable, but hardly sessionable. An interesting drink for sure.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Clear, bright mandarin orange in color with a very thin off-white head. Not much cling left on the glass.

Sweet and fruity aroma along with a mild muskiness and distinct Brett yeast. The fruits consist of green apple, sweet pear, white/green grapes, and a mild strawberry hint.

The green apple, pear, and white/green grapes play the largest role in this beer's flavor, almost making it taste far more like a wine than a beer. The sourness is very, very mild and the mustiness is somewhat lost as well.

Thin bodied and very low carbonation, nearly reminiscent of white wine.

A flavorful, fruity, very mildly sour ale from Allagash. I was actually somewhat disappointed with this one, though I didn't know at all what to expect.
