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.

rosenbergh (6102) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2014
375 ml bottle. From bierkompass.de.
Hazy yellow colour with a small white head. Fruity sweetness, tropical fruits, sourness, tartness, brett and malt in the aroma. Phenomenal aroma. The flavour is sourness, mild tartness, grainy malt, citrus and some mild bitterness. A bit thin. After all it’s only 4.2%. The flavour is a bit of a disappointment after the absolutely great aroma.

Brandman (1992) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2014
Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has, well first comes bretta with some floury maltiness. Some lemons and pineapple with bit vinegary apple. Flavour drops a lot. Watey and some lemons with just some sourness. Not as hard tartness as assumed after aroma. Thinnish.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2014
Clear golden colour, dissipating white head. Aroma of citrus, hay, lots of brett, malts, light hops. It starts with huge brett notes, but as it stays open those balance out a bit. Citrus flavour, fresh, malts, quite sour for a saison, citric acid. Bit thin (not surprising considering the abv). Quite fresh, sour finish, refreshing! Nice interpretation of a saison!

hockeybeerguy (910) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Reviewed from notes. Consumed August 23, 2013. The appearance has a hazy golden/slightly amber colored body with a two finger white foamy head that dies into the body within a half minute. There is some adequate slightly foamy lacing sticks to the sides of the glass. The smell has some rustic yet funky earthiness coming through very strong with some light lemon in the background, and a little bit of grassiness here and there. A little bit of yeast backs everything up in the background. The taste is tart with a dry woodiness to it with some yeastiness here and there. It has a very dry yet tart lemon aftertaste and a dry finish. The palate is light, very sessionable, and the carbonation seems to be good for the style and comes across fairly smooth to me, not as sharp as other saisons I’ve had, but hey I’m not complaining. Overall, this is not a bad saison, I’m pretty sure I’d have this again.

Color oro pálido y turbio con espuma blanca y ligera. Aromas de uva, manzana y el toque de brett es evidente. En boca es ligera con acidez afrutada y final seco y aspero, El regusto es ácido seco y muy muy largo. El roble no se lo encuentro. Buena.
