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.

Holmen1 (3215) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2015
Fra flaske på Mandag i annen, Cardinal mars-15: En meget syrlig pøse-saison som lukter rabarbra, blomster og krydder. Lett i kroppen, lett å helle innpå. God munnfølelse selv om den var en gusher.

tandembrauer (439) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2015
Shared bottle at Cardinal (mandag i annen). Pours hazy light golden with small white head. Aroma of brettanomyces, lemon, sulphur, dishwater. Taste sour-fresh, with lemon, sour apples, and effervescent powder. Fresh and thin bodied; refreshing. Overcarbonated.

S_Side_Smitty (550) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Pours pale yellow and cloudy with a small white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is lemon & coriander with a hint of barnyard funk. Taste is pretty much the same as aroma with sharp lemon at the onset, but the flavors suddenly drop off at the mid and some mellow malts creep in for the finish. There’s nothing ’dry’ about this one. This saison scores really high, but it seems kinda bland to me. It’s allergy season. That @#!%’s up everything. May have to revisit this one.

oh6gdx (21814) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Bottled (thanks fonefan!). Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized foamy white head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is kind of funky with a nice farmyardy and spicy edge to it. Also some nice citrus as well as some mild grainy notes (grainy in a good way). Flavour is dry wooden along with some slight brett, mild citrus as well as some herbs and mild sap and tartness. Really gentle and pleasant to drink. Nice carbonation level too. Wellbalanced and refreshing. Good sipper, which goes down surprisingly easy.

Sigmund (5557) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2015
375 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. 2014 / Batch 11. ABV is 4.2%. Golden colour, low white head. Pleasant brettanomyces aroma, notes of farmhouse kitchen and mild spices, hints of oaked cider. The flavour has a moderate acidity, slightly tart, with fruity (esp. lemons) and spicy notes. Easy drinking and refreshing.

Infected bottle? Bootleged this sweet looking beer home from a business trip and waited patiently to drink it. Its been infected by lacto. The smell and color of a lovely saison are lingering, but its hazy and sour (not to style sour) like an infected bottle would be. Tastes more like a Berliner Weiss.

Christian (11493) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2015
CBC 2014. Hazy golden with a thick and lasting white head. Fruity and funky aroma with pineapple and lemon peel. Dry and tart, funky flavour with citrus hops and a nice bitter finish

larsga (6501) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2015
Medium offwhite head. Hazy yellow body with fast, big-bubbled carbonation. Lemony mealy herbal aroma with funky floral notes. Acidic funky earthy wooden taste with lemony notes. Mid-to-light body. Sharpish, strange mouthfeel. Dry-acidic wooden mealy aftertaste with funky vinegary notes. The aroma was very nice, but the rest is a bit disappointing. Could be more complex. (0.375l bottle, from Gulating Ølutsalg, Strømmen.)
