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.

stevoj (6237) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 10, 2018
Crowler fill from CopenRoss. Possibly bad fill. Hazy, pale golden, fizzy foamy head. Faint yeasty aroma, bready notes. Taste too seems thin. Was expecting bigger, brighter notes, but this dull, boring, weak. Brand New place might have screwed up the fill. Relooked at this as it warmed and it got a bit better. Lemon zest and peaches, kind of tangy. Brett notes more apparent nearer to room temperature.

willisread (4207) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2018
Bottle from Craft Brewed. Pours a clearish gold with a full finger of foam that lingers. Striking lemon zest-driven nose with undertones of wet hay, Brett and horseblanket. Tart passion fruit as it warms up with cracked wheat / spelt aromas as well. Tart on the palate, with spritzy carbonation. Thin on the palate with mineral notes, lemon and more wet hay. Finish has some peppery argula, more hay and dried lemon. Nice table beer.

Svesse (9314) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2018
(Bottle) Golden colour, slightly hazy, with foamy white head. Fruity, slightly sourish nose with notes of tropical fruit, lemon peel, grapefruit, grass and spicy yeast. Fruity, slightly tart taste with lemon, grapefruit, unripe pineapple, grass, white bread, yeast, hay and a balanced citric bitterness in a dry finish. Medium body, dry. Tasty and refreshing, with a fresh hop character and some spicy yeast. Really well made and very nice.

Gerbeer (4354) - 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.

oobawa (2027) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 9, 2017
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.

ametras (1889) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2017
375ml bottle. Yellowish blonde with a thin frothy white head. Slight haze. Flavors are crackery malt, hay, lemon, peach, herbs, oak and funk with earthy and light tart notes. Light body, moderate to good carbonation, slick texture.

jinroh (2727) - ESTONIA - AUG 26, 2017
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?

3.5
DonGregorio (694) - POLAND - AUG 24, 2017
Shared bottle. Hazy pale yellow colour, white head. Aroma of barnyard, berry, pale fruits. Taste is dry, light to medium sour, barnyard, hay, berry, lime, lemon, light spice. Tart, lemony finish. Light to medium body, soft to average carbonation. Tasty, funky, pleasant to drink.
