COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Artisan ale aged in oak barrels Translated from French as “old-tradition”, Vieille is our barrel-aged classical saison. Using time-honored techniques, our saisons employ traditional methods to restore complexity and the rustic character lost in modern day saison. Saisons were the original wild ales, brewed for the farmhands to be a refreshing and sustaining beverage. Each batch of Vieille takes on a soft Brettanomyces character and a complex acidity while conditioning in our large oak foeders. After conditioning in oak, we lightly dry hop the beer to finish it, lending a subtle citrusy hop aroma. Leading with lemon and lime citrusy hop notes, a subtle herbal spice, and a crisp tart finish, Vieille’s character epitomizes artisan saison.

Towey1989 (5426) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2019 Bottle from HonestBrew. Pours a hazy pale golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, lime, some peach, gooseberry, slight Brett, sourness and subtle farmhouse yeast. Taste of lemon, lime, peach, some gooseberry, sourness, slight Brett, farmhouse yeast and subtle pepper. Light to medium bodied and a slick texture. A dry, slight sour, peppery fruit finish. More on the sourer side of a saison but I really don’t mind that. Classic saison qualities with sharp and fruity citrus flavours. Very nice.

rodsquad (985) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2019 Bottle from Noble Hops Aberdeen. Looks incredible. A straw gold with thin bright white head and tons of pin prickly bubbles. Nose is amazing too. Dry, musty funk of a farmyard with an apple, gooseberry tang. Gives an acidic burn on the taste. Touch of hay. Plenty green apple going on. Light-medium body with bubbly fizz. Super refreshing and easy drinking. It's this was affordable it would be a fridge filler for me. Loved it.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2018 Picked this one by sheer luck this Summer, where I didn’t know anything about this brewer at the time. Interesting beer, yet too sour and dry for my type of saison.
