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.

Light yellow with slight haze and champaign like head crackling from the pour. Haybale scent and corn aroma. Tart and refreshening light body. A good beer but not sure it's worth 6x the price of the next-best saison out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
