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.

commonmac (1045) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Bottle acquired by Qponnagy at Princeton Liquors. Consumed on March Madness Day 2 with Qponnagy and commonshawn. Hazy, unfiltered lighter golden color with minimal head. Sediment presence. Aroma brings to mind quintessential sour with an aggressive citrus presence. Taste is super tart with lemon and sour characteristics abound. Aggressive flavors initially before giving way to a quiet aftertaste and finish. Definitely not my style but one of the cleaner sour saisons I’ve consumed. Punished because I can’t imagine drinking it again.

12oz bottle from Princeton liquor with commonmac and Qponnagy during March madness. Light gold with medium white head. Very tart sour nose. Super sour. Lemon. Tart. Can’t pull out a lot of other flavors. A clean taste, but you have to love sours.

javiercrasher (273) - Granada, SPAIN - MAR 9, 2016
Aromas de uva, manzana y brett. En boca es ligera con acidez afrutada y final seco. Algo de vino blanco. Bastante ligera y sin destacar mucho la barrica.

Hanoi (835) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle. Nose is very, very funky, floral, lemons, herbal, sherbert, clove. Very, very appetising.Taste is cereal, a little biscuit, funky, sharply tart, with lemons, lime, pineapple, leathery brett, green apple, a dry herbal note, with a spicy character, in the lightly hopped finish. The barrel, is there as the beer warms, complimenting the leather from the brett. A very nice, complex beer.

The barrel aging really mellows out a lot of the flavors but also adds some very interesting elements to the taste. The barrel flavor goes well with the funk and tartness as the citrus comes through as well. The smell plays into the taste almost exactly. The feel is smooth just before you get a tingling on your tongue from the carbonation. This is an excellent saison!
