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.

Vignale (1808) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2014
Flaska från Mikkeller&Friends. Mycket disig, gyllengul, lågt snabt försvinnande skum. Lätt friskt syrlig doft med citrus, stall, jäst, jord och snittblommor. Mycket lätt, den är ju bara 4,2%, men väldigt mycket karaktär. Frisk lätt beska gul citrus, stall, jord, blommor. Riktigt fin smakbild. Kan inte komma på något jag saknar i den stiltypiska och rustika lätta saison. Riktigt gott.

DialSquare (2316) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle from Proof. Gold pour with a white head and loose sheets of lacing. Aroma is farmhouse, sweet bread, earthy, brett. Tastes are citrus, lemon, lightly tart, barnyard, little floral. Easy drinking, but just a tad on the thin watery side. Nice enough, but expensive. Like the Surette better.

BMMillsy (1150) - Florida, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa. Pours clear yellow to light golden colored with a fluffy white head. Brett on the aroma with light citrus and grass, dryness, tart. Flavor is dry citrus and hay, lemon peel, some tart Brett, dry oak, and a slightly dirty wheaty finish. Light bodied with high carbonation. This would be excellent if it weren't for the slight unpleasant finish, but solid overall.

Aroma has a nice acidity with apple cider vinegar and fruity yeast with apple, as well as some honey sweetness and spice and a nice touch of hoppy lemon. Full body with soft carbonation.

erickok (3185) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 12, 2014
Stunning looking body, light misty and glowing yellow golden, light a spring time sun. Stable head too. Appealing nose: very summery fresh aroma with fresh flowers, lemon, citra, even fennel seeds. Taste is fresh and crisp too, certainly with a solid amount of acidity like lemon juice. Very bretty! Dry enough ending. If anything it misses a tat bit of yeast character, but I am very pleased with this drinkable saison. And a body like this at only 4% abv... hell yes! (Bottle from Beer City)

RasmusOtt (968) - Aalborg, DENMARK - APR 11, 2014
Pours golden yellow with a tiny white head. This beer is up front refreshing from the beginning. Bringing you some apple notes, sweet citrus fruits, pears and some goose berries. You can smell the tartness and the kinda rural character in the aroma as well. Very balanced and complex aroma. Taste has some nice notes of green apples, pears, goose berries and some citrus fruits. I also get the more rural and ’stable’ notes. Quite tart and you can also feel the oak aging, making the beer dry and woody. Almost feels like a gueuze sometimes. Completely enjoyed this beer!
