Cest une triple atypique que nous propose la Brasserie des Sources, sur un rpertoire trs doux et fruit. Ils indiquent dailleurs eux mme quil sagit dun mix entre une triple et une Pale Ale. En verre, la Vieux Lille est blond dor (EBC 15), limpide, avec une forte effervescence. Une belle mousse crmeuse de 2 cm dpaisseur la surmonte. Le nez est acidul et fruit avec, outre les notes maltes, des armes de pommes, poires et citron. Lattaque est essentiellement sur les crales avec une pointe citronne. La deuxime bouche laisse dcouvrir des armes trs doux et suaves. Le fruit est roi : pomme, poire banane agrment dune touche de vanille. Lamertume est moyennement marque (IBU de 23), couverte de surcrot pas une lgre acidit et une prsence sucre marque. Les 8,5 % Abv dalcool ne se sentent absolument pas. Le final dune bonne longueur laisse entrevoir une lgre astringence et de petites notes pices (peu affirmes). Entre lamertume, la pointe acidule et l astringence finale, lquilibre a du mal se trouver. Seule la douceur du sucre permet de stabiliser lensemble. En conclusion cette bire ne me fait absolument pas penser au Vieux Lille, que je trouve riche de son architecture, de son histoire, de ses habitants et de son ambiance. La douceur de cette bire et ses armes fruits lui permettront dtre apprcie par des nophytes mais la Vieux Lille par ces mmes caractristiques donne un tantinet limpression dtre plutt un mix entre une bire et un soft.

VDuquerroux (1558) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - OCT 9, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. @Naintr, France. Kindly shared with my dad. A dark golden beer with a medium white foamy head ; average retention. Caramel, acid, "old", herb note. Medium sweet, sugary, warming, light bitter. Light to medium body, average texture, average to soft carbonation, sweet short warming finish. Overall, ok belgian strong ale ; not the tripel beer you expect ; too sugary, not really clean.

yngwie (16888) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle, 75cl corked. A big, white head leaves some lacing over a slighlty hazy golden body. Sort of chalky, funky nose with fruityness and some white sugar. Boring, and that goes for the flavor too. Some cellarish, corked notes in the flavor, and with some pale malts and white sugar in the back. Fruityness and some bitterness. Medium body, a bit low on carbonation. Long fruity finish with a touch of metal. Boring. 150814
