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.

rondphoto (3983) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 8, 2016
bottle @ The Beer Trappe / Lexington KY --- (bottled April 2015) Aroma of malt with grass and a kiss of lemon. Cloudy light amber color, white head that quickly drops to a thin cover, bands of lace. Taste is slightly sour malt that adds medium fizz and sour yellow & orange fruit. The finish moves strongly toward sweeter orange and lemon in a finish that lasts an eternity. This is a Saison that doesn’t emphasize the sour. Exceptional (except for $9.00 for 12.7 oz.) Highly recommended.

davidezdonz (292) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUL 6, 2016
A 375ml bottle bottled in April 2015 and poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It poured a clear golden orange colour with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly but left some light lacing. Aromas are brett, barnyard funk, lemon, tart, oak and pepper spice. Tastes light, everything was light. Light sourness, light tart, light lemon, light pepper, light oak and light funkiness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall despite everything in the taste being quite light, it was still nice and refreshing.

Benzai (13677) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle shared by Caesar @ Caesars mancave. Clear pale yellow color, average sized white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma reminds me of a saison and a geuze, slight yeast and quite a nice citrussy yellow fruits touch. Taste only has a slight sourish touch, quite balanced, a slight citrussy touch, superbly balanced. Lovely.

Kita (1872) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 7, 2016
Bottle, 0.375l. Pours cloudy golden color with thin creamy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, brett, herbs and bread with mild earthy note. Taste starts light sweet grainy, following is refreshing citric, funky and gentle woody with moderate bitter finish. Medium body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Very nice and smooth, even a bit undercarbonated for my liking...

andyhwcinc (1821) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Enjoyed on tap in sampler form at the Crooked Stave Taproom in Denver, CO. Appearance is a cloudy bright gold with a prominent frothy white head. Aroma is 'earthy' like herbs and fertilizer, not the greatest smell but its faint enough and I can appreciate it. Taste is very strange, like raw hops with sour grape notes, I can appreciate its complexity but I'm not into it.

0.375l bottle. Slightly hazy golden body, thin white head. Aroma of bread, lemon zest, berries and a bit of bubble gum. Taste of lemon zest, vinegar, bread, apricot and some citruses. Quite sour for a saison, but pretty good.
