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.

Bill Becker (1908) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Pours a hazy orange closer to yellow orange. Close to 2 fingers of foam. Wait, looking at my glass, that’s lacing for aboot half.
Saison notes of cloves, pepper and coriander. Then, it gets all hoppy and funky with a suggestion of tartness.
Taste =nose. Plus it’s a dry son of a gun. I gots the cotton mouth. Joking.
Heavy side of light bodied. Good job for a beer that’s the same abv as your average light/lite beer. Very very nice.

BeardedAvenger (1197) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2017
Bottle from Wine Rack, West Byfleet. Pretty intense citrus aroma. Medium gold. Slightly opaque. 5mm of creamy white head. Sour - a tart citrus hit. Underlying saltiness. Relatively light bodied. Watery but leaves a slick residue. Long dry finish. All about the citrus.

PanMarek (464) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2017
Pours a cloudy, dark golden with quick white foam that leaves slight traces on the glass. Sour, woody nose with some hints of herbs. Tart, dry earthy flavor to start that slowly brings out a dry, fruity aspect. The Brettanomyces is there, but it is muted by the strong, sour lemony notes. The hops are faint, but mingle well with the citrusy flavors. Medium body, active fizz with a vinous finish. The long, sour finish tends to obscure the conventional yeasty mustiness, but not fatally. It is tempting to call it a hybrid sour / saison, that does not quite fit the brewer’s description

Tognetta (953) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 10, 2017
Amarelo claro de leve turbidez, espuma branca de boa formação e persistência. No aroma brett bombando, alaranjada, frutas amarelas, leve dulçor e acidez. Paladar de leve dulçor sem amargor. Corpo bem leve e média carbonatação. Final seco mas refrescante, brett sempre presente e na medida, um leve amargor amadeirado com o aumento da temperatura que adicionou complexidade. Muito boa.

J_man (1023) - Tustin, California, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Bottle picked up on trip to Fort Collins. Very sour aroma with a slight woody note coming from the bottle. Pours a slightyly hazy pale yellow with a light white head. Sourness puckers immediately on the first taste with some light sweetness to balance. Some dry hay and mustiness with a little earthy bitterness poke through, but the sourness dominates with a lemon/lime tartness. This slowly becomes more balanced as you drink it. I wasn’t sure I liked it at first, but halfway through it was much more drinkable. Finishes tart with a lasting bitterness that builds up on the tongue. Sours aren’t my thing, but I can tell this is a very good one and it’s very well made.

Fules (1395) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JAN 16, 2017
Kicsi, nem túl tartós hab, borostyán szín. Savanykás, vadélesztős, boros illat. Savanyú, citrusos, fehérboros ízvilág, hordós és enyhe fűszeres karakterrel. Erősen szénsavas, könnyed, enyhén kesernyés. Nagyon finom, frissítő sör.

Svartvit (967) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Funky, brett, grass, hay, oak, citrusy fruits, lemon peel, light peppery note to it. Has that typical American funk/sour to it. Medium sour, light sweet, light bitter. Medium body, low carbonation.
