New Brew Friday - Allagash Interlude

The long week is over and I'm ready to break something fabulous out of the vault. This Friday it's one of my favorites from Allagash Brewery the Interlude.

Made from a combination of Belgian Farmhouse and Brettanomyces yeast, this beer has a ton of funky, bubbly flavor that's further enhanced from aging in French Merlot and Sirah oak barrels.

It's dry and tart with strong cherry flavor, gorgeous lacing and such a tannic end it almost tastes like a wine, if it weren't for the thick mouthfeel.   This is one to sit back, swirl and enjoy.  It's on tap various places right now such as Birreria and Fourth Avenue Pub, but you can also pick up a bottle at Whole Foods.  Cheers to the weekend!
