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.

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Hazy golden coloured body with a nice two centimetre white head. Aroma of sour grapes, water, grass and a lot of hay - very mild. Light-bodied; Very sour flavour of hay and grass with a big note of grapes and apples at first and a very subdued but sweet fruit flavour at the back end. Aftertaste shows a lot of fruit, some hay and grass but a very pungent yet flavourful sour note. Overall, a very nice beer with a great flavour and even better finish - great to sample, especially at the brewpub! I sampled this full pour (30 cL) on draught here at the brewpub in Denver, Colorado on 07-June-2014.
