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.

GTAEgeek (1929) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2016
375 mL bottle, brough by Zach. Pours a cloudy yellow color, with a medium, bubbly, white head. The nose is lemon peels, yeast and white bread, musty hay and light barnyard funk, and a bit of rosemary. Dry flavor, with a lightly tart finish. Light to medium body, dry, chalky, and acidic. This is a mellow and subtle saison, with a good, easy brett funk that dries it out pretty nicely.

islay (2221) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2016
12.7 oz. bottle, consumed on 3-25-16. Labeled “July 2015,” presumably a “bottled in” month. Initially clear (but hazy in later pours), bright, borderline brilliant, almost orange-ish gold. Final pour has an apricot nectar-like appearance from the yeast. Moderate amount of short-lasting, beige head. Sparkling, fast-rising bubbles. Looks good and appetizing. Tangy, citric aroma. The smell definitely is of Brett, but it’s decidedly young Brett. Orange, tangerine, and grapefruit scents. Apple juice. Highly appetizing smell. Tart, citric, acidic taste. Fresh lemons. Apple cider vinegar. Olive brine. Minerals. Toothpaste with baking soda. Quite tart in fact, perhaps slightly excessively so. Some of that Band-Aid like bitter, medicinal, chemical quality that often comes with Brett, but not much and not in a bad way. A lot going on in the flavor. Pleasant, milky, chalky, dry aftertaste. Medium body, heavier than I expected given the low ABV. Some froth in the palate. Easy to drink and refreshing.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 26, 2016
375ml bottle (Beerfox, Riga)
Lovely fruity aroma, plenty of esters, but light. Hazy straw, small brief head. Very light palate, gentle acidity. Almost a bit watery. Gentle bready malts, bretty herbal dryness, but some other wild yeast causing the acidity. A bit boring, to be honest. Might be a mood thing, but this is not the beer for me right now.
