BEER INFO

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Two yeast strains were used to create this unique Belgian-style ale. The first, a Saison yeast, establishes the flavor foundations of a classic Belgian-style ale. The second, our house strain of Brettanomyces yeast, contributes myriad flavors including pear, apricot, graham cracker, and bread crust. A portion of Interlude is aged in red wine barrels, which imparts a distinctive vinous, plum character and a dry, almost tannic, finish.

Had this on tap at Seymour in Greenfield. The beer had a murky copper appearance with no real head. Amazingly, the aromas I sensed from this beer were very close to an apple-like smell. The taste definitely expanded that with a sharp, tart flavor, reminding me of apples, but mixed with a generally red wine flavor. This beer was very drinkable and approachable thanks to its medium body. Overall, this was excellent, especially with its smell-taste dynamic.
