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.

Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head, very little lacing. Aromas of brett funk, grass, hay, floral, citrus. Tastes of lemon, brett funkyness, slightly peppery with a tart finish. Great saison.

Bottle, sent by b3shine-- many thanks! Lemony yellow, lightly hazy, with a lasting foamy white head that leaves delicate lace. Aroma is deeply funky. I swirl the glass and the funk is thick, redolent of an August barnyard, cheese rind, and a bit of petroleum. A touch of buttermilk too. This is the most complex aroma I’ve encountered in a long while. The palate takes a 90-degree turn from the nose. It opens fresh and light, with tart lemon and green grape notes, moving into light vinegar sourness, ending with an earthy herbal note. Unbelievably complex and drinkable for a lower ABV beer. A new all-time favourite, perhaps the perfect summer every-day beer. Thanks again Beau!

Hints of pine and lemon in the aroma. Pale golden and a bit cloudy color. Nice and controlled white head. Not too thick or thin. Burst of champagne and citrus in the beginning followed by a palate covering light citrus dryness. Incredibly balanced. Incredibly tasty.
