Allagash Interlude 2012
Allagash Interlude is a Saison/Farmhouse Ale brewed with both a Belgian farmhouse yeast and Brettanomyces. A portion of the Interlude is then aged in French Merlot and Sirah oak barrels. This is a limited annual release available in kegs and 750ml bottles. This review is of the 2012 vintage poured from a keg at Green Truck Neighborhood Pub in Savannah GA. I also have a bottle I am cellaring so don’t be surprised if you see an update to this review in a year or so. I am getting the funkiness of the Saison right away, lots of musty barnyard notes. Somewhere in the middle of the taste I get hints of the wine barrels with a mild fruitiness. The beer turns pleasantly tart, although not quite sour, on the finish. I feel like this beer would make a great intro into the world of sours. An excellent beer.
