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.

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.

Turtles (503) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2015
375ml bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy pale golden, white head, sinking fast leaving little lacing. Tart aroma with oak, barnyard, yeast, spice, hay, citrus zest. Smooth and sour mouthfeel, medium carbonated. Hoppy fresh taste with tartness, citrus, pepper, lemon and some of the oak barrel. Very nice crisp, dry long finish.

Bue en bouteille de 375ml. 2014, Batch 14. Blonde claire. Acidité, notes florales. Pas trop mon style quand c'est trop acide mais c'est acceptable.

Une très belle saison au nez tout en fraîcheur, sur des notes de citron, de sureau, presque un nez de Lambic. Bouche tout en fruit, tension, élégance et longueur. Très grande saison dans l’esprit de celle du cazeau. Super fraîche comme on attend d’une saison

375 mL bottle purchased at Belmont Station. Pours a cloudy bright yellow color with a quick fade head. Floral and sour fruit aroma. Flavor has a nice citrus front flavor, with short spice, dominant brett, and a delicious overall tart flavor. Very nicely done here. Love it.

Zlotta (315) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUL 17, 2015
0,375 l bottle from Rudat, batch 14 (2014). Hazy, pale yellow with a medium large, fluffy, slowly diminishing, white head. Heavy gusher. Sourish-fruity aroma of citrus, gooseberry, grapefruit and rhubarb, a little funky. Sourish-fruity aroma of citrus, gooseberry, rhubarb and grapefruit, followed by a short, medium tart finish. Thin to medium body, spritzy and slightly astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very refreshing, but annoyingly I was not prepared for such a heavy gusher. But the taste makes amends.

glennmastrange (2431) - 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.
