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.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a light golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is fruit and wood. The taste is slightly tart.

BlackHaddock (8073) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2016
Shared bottle in La Cervecita Nuestra De Cada Dia, Barcelona on 8th July 2016 with the RBESG guys. Poured light golden yellow with a white head. Aroma was of citrus fruits and wood. The fruity taste was also citrus led with a mixed basket of flavours which had some herbal notes as well. Twiggy and gooseberry ’ish’ sums the brew up nicely. Different and interesting, but ’um’.

Klimaet (3130) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours light hazy yellow with a medium white head. Aromas of citrus, pear, gooseberries, peach, pineapple, estery notes, light orange, light tartness, vanilla, oak. Taste has the same lot going on; pears, citrus, hay, peach, pineapple, gooseberries, oak, light tartness. light esters. Fantastic!

Maakun (6939) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2016
Bottle at Cervecita. Clear golden with white head. Lots of lemon, funk, grass, soap, white pepper, dough, fresh herbs and twigs. Over medium sour and very light bitter and sweet. Almost medium bodied. Quite nice.

rondphoto (4531) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 8, 2016
bottle @ The Beer Trappe / Lexington KY --- (bottled April 2015) Aroma of malt with grass and a kiss of lemon. Cloudy light amber color, white head that quickly drops to a thin cover, bands of lace. Taste is slightly sour malt that adds medium fizz and sour yellow & orange fruit. The finish moves strongly toward sweeter orange and lemon in a finish that lasts an eternity. This is a Saison that doesn’t emphasize the sour. Exceptional (except for $9.00 for 12.7 oz.) Highly recommended.

davidezdonz (643) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUL 6, 2016
A 375ml bottle bottled in April 2015 and poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It poured a clear golden orange colour with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly but left some light lacing. Aromas are brett, barnyard funk, lemon, tart, oak and pepper spice. Tastes light, everything was light. Light sourness, light tart, light lemon, light pepper, light oak and light funkiness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall despite everything in the taste being quite light, it was still nice and refreshing.

caesar (7465) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle from Biernavigatie, medium sample. Slight hazy golden color, short frothy head. Aroma of soft funky notes , citrus, pineapple, bit tart lactic notes. Soft sour in taste, soft bitter, citric acid. Great balance as always. Lovely stuff.

Benzai (16999) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle shared by Caesar @ Caesars mancave. Clear pale yellow color, average sized white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma reminds me of a saison and a geuze, slight yeast and quite a nice citrussy yellow fruits touch. Taste only has a slight sourish touch, quite balanced, a slight citrussy touch, superbly balanced. Lovely.

Kita (2327) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 7, 2016
Bottle, 0.375l. Pours cloudy golden color with thin creamy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, brett, herbs and bread with mild earthy note. Taste starts light sweet grainy, following is refreshing citric, funky and gentle woody with moderate bitter finish. Medium body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Very nice and smooth, even a bit undercarbonated for my liking...

Easy drinking fsrmhouse saison that isn’t super heavily barreled. Light wine aroma and some farmhouse grass and hay. Golden pour with good head and lacing. Light tangy bretta finish, a hint of citrus. Tap at Churchkey.
