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.

Bottle from my Portland trip

This is my first beer from Crooked Stave, and I bring high expectations given everything I’ve heard. Maybe this will be the brewery to reverse my opinion of the Colorado brewing scene. Pours sepia-toned into my tulip, modest head. Aroma is light pepper and chicken shed, brett, mild latrine funk, sawdust. The flavor is quite a bit more tart than I expected from the aroma: regurgitated stomach acid but not in a bad way, sort of a gose thing, drying brett, oak, late citrus pith hops. Big flavor here at 4.2%, relatively thin and quaffable on the tongue. This would be an enjoyable session beer on a summer afternoon.

Sammy (10019) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours unfiltered dark yellow, with some lasting head, showing rising carbonation bubbles. Smooth mouthfeel with a full lemon tart finish. Nicely drinkable. Lots of taste for lower abv.

sebletitje (8124) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2014
Bouteille 37.5cl de Geers. Dorée sur une fine opacité vers la fin, col blanc. Arôme offre de suite le bouquet rustique d’une saison, pointe boisée accompagné d’un léger bouquet houblonné. Note fruitée presque abricot/mangue avec ce léger côté brett. Cette note levure devient plus présente vers le fond de la bouteille. Palais présente un côté sec rappelant un houblonnage à cru, le tout gardant ce profil rustique de saison. Notes nobles léger citronné, amertume-suret modéré rehaussé par de belles notes boisées - chêne. Facile à boire, complexe, légère mais avec le prix d’un peu plus de 10€ pas une expérience de tous les jours.

Dr_Fellini (984) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy light golden yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma is very faint, with hints of dry wood, acetic acid, and belgian yeast. Flavor is much more present, with citrus sour, floral hops, and lots of Brett. Lighter in body with a light lingering tartness. Tasty.
