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

Cool_Bond (1931) - 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.

Lovely cloudy yellow color with a small white head. Sour berries, wood and citric aroma. Decent body for an 4,2% ale. Fine acidity and a bit dry. Average carbonation. Lots of brett here. Also citric, herbal and wood. Fresh nice saison.
