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.

Bridging the gap between saison and sour, this is a well rounded and unique beer. Smells almost like the duchess. Sour taste leads into light hop, very pleasant and lively. Not too many signs of sweet, but not strong bitter- dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gerbeer (4024) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2017
375 ml bottle. Pours amber with light bubbly head. Aromas of oak, light Brett, citrus, stoned fruit and a bit of potpourri. Flavours of fruity Belgian yeast, soft Brett and farmyard, wine gums, sweet lemon and tart green fruit with a light wheat malt base. Very good.

Unholy gusher of a bottle, leaving me with about six ounces to drink and the rest pooling on the kitchen counter. Strong citric-yeasty nose with traces of floral hops and oak. Pour comes out a hazed straw yellow with a modest white head (surprising for how much foam went streaming out of the bottle) and the slightest bit of lace. Mellow sour notes mix with traditional saison grassiness, undertones of clove and wheat offering a nice balance to the tart citrus. Oak adds a vanilla layer to the back end, while the fade mixes a modest hop bitterness with a woodsy flourish. Unexpectedly mellow, yet the beer evolves nicely as it warms, turning into a pleasant old-school wild saison.

Darker orange hue, not much carbo. Nose refreshingly sour, even a bit herbal maybe. Grassy sour if it makes sense. Taste is dry sour and refreshing, quite a lot of fresh cut grass, bitter apple peel fermentation. Brett. Dry sticky finish. Good one but maybe not enough depth? Do I really need that depth when I enjoy this beer that much as I do?

heman (1205) - Tychy, POLAND - JUL 1, 2017
Piwo ma złota barwę, nalewa się z białą intensywną i średnio trwałą pianą. Aromat jest lekko kwaśny, kojarzący się z cytryną, do tego białe pieczywo i niuanse pieprzowe. W smaku bardzo wytrawne. Podbudowa słodowa w postaci chleba, cytrusowa kwaskowatość i cierpki, ściągający, nieco przyprawowy finisz. Niezwykle orzeźwiające.
