COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vieille meaning “Old” is our artisinal barrel-aged Saison, lightly dry hopped. Each batch release is a diverse blend of Vieille casks that have taken on a soft Brettanomyces character before being lightly dry hopped. Dominated by a floral, citrusy hop character, a subtle herbal note and a tart finish, Vieille’s character exemplifies artisan Saisons.

King_Alex_II (379) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Golden clear color. The smell is saison like (seems not very helpful, but with my limited capabilities of smelling, it’s the best I can do). The taste is salty and light sour. Herbal fresh aromas that are a little dry on the palate. Completed by a fitting lively fine carbonation. Finished by a dry but not tart aftertaste.

Garrold (2264) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle. Beermoth, Manchester. Hazy, greeny gold. Film, and halo, of tight, white head. Soft, damp, sweet, biscuit malts. Some Lemsip type, lemon spice. Some oily herb, sage and suchlike. Taste is dry, and gently sour. Palate is thin, and a little soapy. Finishes more of that. Smells fantastic. Tastes good. Unfortunately, after that it drops off a bit. Overall, it’s decent enough.

Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av citron, hö, gräs, brett, ladugård, äpple, vitt vin, med toner av funk, jord och vinäger. Viss syrlighet, torr, lagom sötma, lätt beska. Finstämd och uppfriskande!
