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.

375ml Bottle. The pour was a murky golden orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white creamy head that diminished quickly, down to a scattered film and medium collar with excellent streaky lacing. The aroma was of a funky Belgian yeast and a light grain malt with notes of citrus (lemon), a fruity ester (peaches and pairs), lemon grass, cheese and dust. The taste was very yeasty with a strong citrus backbone and had a mild grassy feel along with a hint of lemon early on, and then become very lightly bitter with a mildly sour ending. The flavor only lasted a short time after the swallow, with a light sour bitter taste fading slowly off the taste buds into the background. Mouthfeel was a bit above light in body and rather dry in texture with a medium carbonation. Overall this was an extremely tasty Saison, which I also found to be very refreshing and easy to drink. I think I may just have found my new session brew...

Nez très cirque et brett. Couleur jaune très clair, quasi pas de mousse et pas de rétention de mousse. Très léger en bouche. Le dry hopping est léger et l’acidité est très légère. Manque de longueur en bouche et un peu de corps pour rendre le tout plus rond encore.

On draft at Crooked Stave. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head. Sour, lemony, Brett, hay, dry finish. Seems like more of a sour than a saison but I loved it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden with a thin/medium, quickly dissipating, white head. Aroma of hops, spices, fruit, herbs. Sweet with a bitter and very tart finish, a lot going on on the tongue! Oily texture, low/med carbonation. Good beer.

This beer smells like a sour beer - lots of lemon and yeast. For a saison it has a lot going on. Slight head and a hazy golden yellow color. A hint of hop gives way to a blast of lemon. The finish is light, watery and mildly yeasty.

Shared bottle. Very nice saison. My only criticism is the lemon needs to be toned down slightly. Otherwise a very drinkable session beer.

Bottle from Luksus, Tørst Brooklyn. Pours a straw yellow. Fucking amazing Saison full of Brett and grassy tones. Cloves, spices, yeast and Brett dominate the taste. Anything with Brett is a fucking winner for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
