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.

wchesser (1375) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Slightly cloudy dark hay color with a persistent pillowy head and lacing. Funky, cheesy nose. Dusty flavors with lot of lemon citrus and tart funkiness, but doesn’t finish particularly sour. Not without some flaws, but the complexity in the nose and taste makes this compelling. Bring me some oysters!

Cool_Bond (1928) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2015
Sour berry, citrus and some fruitiness in the aroma. The flavor of the bread, citrus and a little oak barrels. Certainly, this beer is sour but really good. Really good bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the front part of the mouth for a long time. A very enjoyable beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy pale straw-white coloured with a large foamy white head. It has a tart lemon and barnyard flavour, spicy fruity notes with a dry biscuit, vanilla, oak and herbal, tart Bret finish. Excellent!

Smooth crisp spiced aroma with a light color appearance. The aroma unfolds in the mouth and finishes with a tart coating. One of the best saisons I’ve had. Refreshing and to style. Soo drinkable, but very pricey.
