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.

Funky nose with some Brett apparent, mouth feel lacks with a slightly watery finish would be a great session saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HonusWagner (1406) - Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Light tartness, herbal, a bit citrusy, very drinkable table saison with good flavors and aromas but nothing dominant. Would be an excellent value at 1/4th the price.

375 mL bottle shared by my friend Scott. Thanks! Pours a hazy gold with a thin frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of funky, earthy notes, mild must and pale malt. The taste is pepper, funk, earth, spice, apple, pale malt. Medium bodied, high carbonation, lingering tartness. Nice beer.

Bottle (batch #10) into glass. Color is light, hazy straw. Smell is citrus and must; the Brett is very apparent. Nice, mid-level tartness. Light bodied. Dry. Really enjoy this one.

teromous (55) - - SEP 15, 2014
Appearance: Pale straw gold color, hazy, with a fluffy white head. Aroma: Very musty barn scent, old hay, souring fruit. Taste: Sour and tart but "middle of the road" in strength. Tastes very much like it smells, musty old hay. There is a light sweet wheat flavor in there. It is very good with a lot of complex flavors. There is a spicy hop aftertaste that is awesome. Palate: The mouthfeel on this is awesome. It is just tart enough without being puckering. Great carbonation volume but be careful when you open the bottle. Overall: I had this both on tap and in the bottle. It was more tame in the bottle, possibly because of more conditioning in the bottle, but it really helped mellow the flavor and bring out some of the hidden characteristics like the hops. I recommend it both on tap and bottle. Will drink it again if I can get more.
