COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cloudy yellow pour, crisp white head. Aroma - citrus (lemon mostly), funk, grass. Taste - medium sourness, very lambic like but with more sourness and some slight sweetness, finishes medium dry with a nice bit of pucker. A really well rounded fruit lambic.

Prufrockstar (678) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Draft at Brouwer’s for Sour Fest last year. From notes. Aroma: Similar to St Lam (see review if interested), but big on vinegar as well. Appearance: Hazy gold, no real head. Taste: Earth, grape, peach; vinous, extremely tart. Palate: pleasantly coating, lively carbonation. Overall: What more to say about this? Damned good.

Erzengel (1904) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2013
Abgefüllt am 24.12.2008 - getestet am 22.01.2011
Goldgelben im Glas mit - wie erwartet - keinem nennenswerten Schaum. Der Geruch ist sauer-fruchtig mit den Anklängen an weißen (und süßen) Traubensaft. Der Antrunk ist mild-säuerlich, nicht so sauer wie erwartet, schon fast angenehm mild. Zum Hauptteil entwickelt sich eine angenehme Mischung aus den typischen Pferdedeckenaromen zusammen mit einer mild-hefigen Fruchtigkeit. Leicht ranzig-trocken. Der Nachgeschmack ist recht lang, ausgewogen (süßlich-)sauer. Erst hier kann ich Nuancen der weißen Trauben ausmachen, die sehr verhalten und vielleicht etwas zu blass daherkommen. Diese Töner verfliegen allerdings wieder recht schnell, so dass auf der Zunge die typische Pferdedecken-Pelzigkeit zusammen mit einer leicht muffig-herben und natürlich sauren Note zurückbleibt. Die letzten Traubenaromen werden von der immer deutlicher werdenden Holzfassnote (die ich sehr schätze) überlagert.
--> Interessantes Bier, allerdings für meinen Geschmack etwas zu flach (vor allem im Gegensatz zu den übrigen Cantillon-Bieren). Die Trauben sind nur in Ansätzen zu erahnen.
Test vom 22.1.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,9,12,13,11 - 10,90

Bottled opened at the Pig one year anniversary. Shared with good friends in small snifters. Aroma of white wine, green grapes, funk, yeasts, and bread. The taste was not as bold or tart as I expected, but the it was amazing. The taste was very much white wine, tart grapes, funky yeasts, and that awesome tannins flavor. Solid carbonation. Great, clean finish with a slight tart smack at the end. So damn good.

Funky odd nose. Lovley oddness. Sour but not much funk in the taste - how interesting! Very nice.

Bottle from North Bar, Leeds. Fuck, this is good. Pours a faintly hazy straw yellow, finger of head. Aroma is beautiful and amazingly complex: barnyard funk, sherbet lemons, grapes, white wine, wood, spices, juniper and more. Taste is brilliant too - not as puckeringly sour as expected, really balanced. Again, fruity grape, white wine, sour barnyard funk, sherbet, tiny metallic tang, too. Very dry finish, but the flavour lasts forever. This is just utterly, utterly brilliant.

ametras (212) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
[2009] 75cl bottle at Bistro L’Autre Oeil. Pours hazy pale orange with a thin foamy white head. Aroma is grapes, green apples along with some funky, musty, dusty notes. Taste is grapes skin, fruity, sour, yeasty, grainy and tart. Nice dry lemony finish.

Thanks to drowland for the share at a tasting. Golden, pale orange pour somewhat fizzy. Aroma was super funky but then mellowed for beautiful grape, lemons, oak, and spices. The tart taste was perfect..especially refreshing. White grape was in the forefront with plenty of funk and grass and lemon. Mouthfeel was great, well carbonated and light. Excellent.

Notes from backlog. Super tart, with vinegar, citrus, funk, and an aftertaste that never leaves.
