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.

Bridging the gap between saison and sour, this is a well rounded and unique beer. Smells almost like the duchess. Sour taste leads into light hop, very pleasant and lively. Not too many signs of sweet, but not strong bitter- dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lectvay (144) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Aroma is nice, citrus, hoppy, barnyard. Taste is bright and juicy up front, then falls a little flat. Seems watery. Tart finish. Not bad.

Stine (1600) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Fully hazed, smooth blonde. Punchy, definitive brett aroma. Gravel, pineapple, gruyere rind, limestone; farm and earth forward, thoroughly acidic. Staunch and steadfast in balance. Creamy, lemon curd sweetness, a bit soft and doughy, coated in delicate white sugars.

Zinging acids against musty earth, cardamom pods, cheese rinds and soft yellow fruits. Zesty and fervent in acidity; malt layering is hard to perceive, and the distantly present leafy hop and apricot skin presence is quickly dissolving. Detailed, but somewhat immediate in its complexity, and lacking for length.

Again, the high acidity in the lemon oil and gruyere rind combination is striking in its palate cleaning, enamel stripping power. The soft texture can’t quite compete. The makeup of the beer is aesthetically pleasing, even if its components are a bit aggressive.

HonusWagner (1423) - Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Light tartness, herbal, a bit citrusy, very drinkable table saison with good flavors and aromas but nothing dominant. Would be an excellent value at 1/4th the price.
