Vigneronne is a blending muscat grapes and lambic, the brewers and beer merchants produced the "druivenlambik" (grapes lambic). White grapes soaked in lambic. The fructose, which abounds in these fruits, enables us to make a beer which is more mellow than the Gueuze or the other fruit beers. The spontaneous fermentation, the ageing in the barrels for several years and the addition of grapes make it a distant cousin of certain white wines. Changed name from Druivenlambik in 1987.

neongolden (598) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
(Bottle at barVolo for Zwanze Day 2014, Sept 20 2014) Very murky brownish gold with a small bubbly white head that fades. Aroma of white wine, light stone fruit and acid with lots of sweaty feet and cheese funk. Palate has acidic white wine, menthol, in the middle lots of bitter herbal and medicinal notes fight with the bright acidity but the result is surprisingly mellow. In the finish, lingering acid, some grain, herbs, light wood. Medium body with basically no carb. This is a very smooth lambic that channels the white wine character and acidity well without giving up its own qualities. Zippy palate and a nice bold finish. My girlfriend’s favourite Cantillon so far, I believe.

Aroma is wild and I swear I get a burnt aroma off it...weird...I know. But it was so well balanced. The tartness was so smooth and the funk was just present to linger on the finish but not make it bad. So good.

On tap at Biercab. Dark orange color with a thin head. Aroma of honey, grapes and a very little bit of lactic acid. Moderate sourness. Lots of wheat and acidic grapes. Lightly tart. Love the balance of sweet and sour in this one. Yes please

Lukasmh (255) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2014
Tap. Pours hazy delicate yellow with surprisingly big white head that actually lasts some time. Nearly sparkling. Aroma is sweet cantillon funk, brett and muscat wine and ripe grapes. Along there’s is citrus, some dry wood and only a hint of wheat. Taste is sour, vinegar and here there really is to speak a bout vinous by. Lot of dry white wine notes. Fizzy carbonation spreads out the tart finish.

750ml bottle shared with rob at cantillon. they didn’t have fou’foune (which i’ve had before) so we had this instead. Pours a very hazy orangey-yellow. Aroma is of the Cantillon brewery itself - musty, barn, dusty, yeasty but you can smell the grapes too. Taste is tart, sour, dry, lively, yeasty, fruity/acidic grapes. tastes of the smell of oak barrel.

BiiruBierBeer (320) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Smells and tastes like a lot of lactic sourness mixed with white grapes. There is also some acetic taste in there, presumably from age. This is a very drinkable sour.
