Vivid - a Swedish Biere de Coupage

Sunday, June 5, 2022Vilda


Vilda is proud to present Vivid, a long-awaited brainchild, and our venture into the style Beire de Coupage.

What is a Beire de Coupage? In its simplest form a blend of young and aged beer, though modern versions are typically a blend of young beer and aged sour beer. For Vivid we chose to blend our aged-hopped SMaSH (Single Malt and Single Hop) Saison with a delectable 14-month barrel-aged sour. In a 70/30 blend, Vivid is a delicious creation of balance and flavors. Pleasant bitterness, almost grapefruit-like, accented with a touch of tartness, citrus and notes of stone fruit. 

Would we classify Vivid as a ‘sour beer’? Not compared to some of our current and future releases. Vivid is Beire de Coupage, a style of many possibilities, an adventure nonetheless, a mixed cultured Saison with a delicate tartness. Enjoy cold and ‘fresh’ or cellar some. Allowing the beer to age and morph further, letting time mellow certain qualities while accentuating others 

As with all our special releases we chose to complete Vivid by bottling condition in 375ml Champange bottles, finishing this beer with a creamy, fluffy white head. 

Vivid pairs well with; seafood, chicken, pork, and charcuterie. Also by itself… it's damn tasty!

A big shout out to Pretty Shitty Inc. for their amazing work on the label, as always top-notch. 

So enough reading this blog post, head to your nearest Systembolaget or jump online and order yourself some bottles of Vivid, We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. 

Cheer! Skål!
