Allagash Interlude Returns For 2018

Allagash Interlude Returns For 2018

This morning we bring you the 2018 version of Interlude from Allagash Brewing in Portland, ME.  This beer is an ale aged in red wine barrels with brettanomyces, and for 2018 the beer will hit 10.6%-AbV.  Interlude 2018 will be packaged in 750ml bottles and stay tuned for release info.  Here’s the commercial description from Allagash:

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.
