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.

Luk_ (93) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
One of the best american sours to reproduce the baryard feeling: horse blanket, dust, wood, earth. Taste is slightly tart with a strong cereal presence. Carbonation and alcool is low, this one is extraordinairely drinkable. 375ml is definitly too small for this lawnmoer beer. Another hit from this very promising brewery.
