BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Allagash Brewing Company
Maine, United States
allagash.com

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.

On tap at Cask and Vine with Mr Barleywine.
Light and fruity with a bretty funky earthy edge to it. Tannic and tart with a bit of a vinous character to it. Nice beer.
