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.

fidelis83 (2168) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Cloudy gold pour with a 2 finger, frothy white head. Aroma is toast, lots of floral and citrus hops, a little bready yeast, a hint of funk. Flavor is nice cereal and toast up front, followed by tart stone fruit and berries, fruity floral and citrus hops, light woody notes and some brett funk, fallen leaves and light acetic or lactic acidity. Light, but full body, juicy entry, dry finish and moderate, spritzy carbonation. Really good stuff, insanely flavorful and complex for 4.2%ABV. I could drink a gallon.

glennmastrange (2424) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle. Moderate aromas of grain, straw and cereal for the malt, grass for the hops, and musty barnyard for the yeast, with hints of vinegar and cardboard. Head is average size, frothy, white with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky but sparkling medium amber. Flavor starts moderate to heavily acidic and acetic, then finishes moderately acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation and finishes tart and dry. A nice crisp Saison, maybe a touch too sour.

Palate: low body and medium carbonation, zesty finish. Overall: I expected something more complex, but it is still ok.

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Bottle: Bright & hazy golden yellow with a fuzzy white head that fades quickly. Aroma of musty hay, green apple, lemon, very mild tannins, & a touch of minerals. Flavor is light, tart, & dry. Mild oak, lemon-lime spritz, white grape, wheat-esque softness, some stone fruit acidity, & light green apple in the finish. Small hint of must & wood, too. Clean, smashable. Reminds me of Jolly Pumpkin’s Calabaza Blanca. Nice.
