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.

2012 bottle

A: poured into a duvel tulip to a deep orange with a slight reddish tint and a finger of dense off white head that retains well
S: slightly tart on the nose with a bit of red wine, a slight funk and some chalky brett
T: barnyard and funk up front with a bit of tartness, slightly fruity, a little oaky, some peppery spice and a bit of yeastyness. swallow is a lot of tannins, oak, horseblanket and funk. slightly tart on the swallow as well
M: soft and slightly prickly carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. very dry finish
O: A great beer. I could swear that this one used to be classified as an American Wild but either way it's fantastic. A bit steep but the flavors and complexity are worth it.
