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.

SinH4 (1067) - SWITZERLAND - APR 29, 2015
Hazy golden-yellow color with white head. Nice bretty-fresh aroma, spicy, citrus. Even artificial citrus acid flavour in there. Taste is spicy, lemony, grapefruity, dry, even a bit salty. Lively carbonation. Texture is awesome, feels like some bigger bubbles make it through every once in a while.

Flaske: Lysegul let diset øl med et stort skumhoved. God sur duft med et strejf af brett. Smagen er frisk let syrlig med en smule brett og citrus. Meget drikbar og lækker øl.

VinegarStroke (342) - Napa, California, USA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle: Pale straw, hazy, light head and no lace. This is a very lifted sour beer. Huge citrus, herb & spice. Some clove. Very fresh & complex but more like a sour than a saison. Dry, sour & moderate to low bitterness. Strong citrus flavours, acidity and long.

tightslice (429) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle from Jax Spirits in Cumming, GA. Had this back-to-back with the Prairie Funky Gold Amarillo...both extremely similar in profile but thought the Prairie edged the Vieille out with a little extra funk. But WOW... totally luck to try these 2 beers so close together.

Semi-hazy yellow with a minimal, white head. Fruity, citrusy aroma, slightly funky. Fresh, citrusy taste with lemon and tangerine, slightly sour, light bitterness, sour apples and some woody notes. Sour, slightly tart, citrusy finish. Medium body, light-medium carbonation. Really tasty, especially considering the rather low abv! I’d sure drink a lot of this if it’d been easier to get and a bit cheaper.

jhgrantjr (456) - Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2015
4/17/15 - Bottle from Beverage World. Pours a hazy gold color. Aroma is that funky saison/brettanomyces aroma/lemons too. Taste is great, smooth, light but slightly tart. Very balanced. I really like this one. Crooked Stave is consistently good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
